If you’re looking for help with muscle tension or chronic pain, experience the release of deep tissue massage at MindBody Med in Seattle. As the name implies, this massage technique works deep layers of muscle and fascia (connective tissue). We look forward to trading you your muscle knots for sighs of pain and stress relief.
The Benefits Of Deep Tissue Massage
Our deep tissue massage therapists will make sure you’re getting the most out of your treatment. For years, deep tissue massages have been used to relieve all kinds of muscle and joint pain. Here are just a few examples:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Chronic Pain Relief
- Arthritis Pain
- Limited Mobility
- Repetitive Strain Injuries
Massage Benefits The Whole Body
This massage technique has many other benefits aside from relieving severe pain and muscle tension. Because it works deep into the body, this kind of massage affects blood vessels and circulation too. For instance, one 2008 study proved that deep tissue massage lowers blood pressure.
Studies have also shown that massage triggers the production of oxytocin — a hormone linked with positive emotions. Increased levels of oxytocin can slow your heart rate which relieves stress and anxiety. Deep tissue massage is also used to improve posture and sleep quality and ease chronic stress.
Your First Visit, What To Expect
Deep tissue massage is designed to be therapeutic, not relaxing, so feeling discomfort or pain during the session is normal. You’ll likely feel stiff or sore for a day or two afterward as well. The best thing you can do is stay relaxed and follow the therapist’s instructions. However, if the pain becomes too intense or your post-massage discomfort isn’t going away on its own, contact your therapist right away.
