WHAT IS PHOENIX DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE? DOES IT HURT?
Phoenix deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue by using more than just thumbs, knuckles and elbows. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
The benefits of deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Unlike Swedish massage, which has a relaxing effect and uses lighter pressure, deep tissue massage is done using deep finger pressure with strokes that are firm and slow. Deep tissue massage has several therapeutic effects and can be used to treat many different conditions. This type of massage is ideal for the treatment of major muscle groups like the neck or lower back. It can also be used to relieve strain and treat injuries in your joints and tendons.
At certain points during the massage, most people find there is usually some discomfort and pain.
It is important to communicate to the therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range.
There is usually some stiffness or pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. The massage therapist may recommend applying ice to the area after the massage.
WHAT KINDS OF CONDITIONS CAN PHOENIX DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE TREAT?
Deep tissue massage is used to treat a wide range of chronic conditions and diseases. It can help you with any one of the following:
Deep tissue massage dramatically increases blood flow and circulation to the most annoying parts of your back. It has been shown that deep tissue massage is more effective at reducing back pain than taking over-the-counter medication alone. The goal at ZahMal London is to help you live as pain-free of a life as possible.
Deep tissue massage helps revitalize the tensest muscles and tendons in your body. They can get very restricted because of years of scar tissue build-up. Our massage team recognizes this fact and applies languid movements to the area to relieve the pain, stiffness, and tension.
Muscle spasms are involuntary contractions of the muscle which can occur literally anywhere in the body. Tonic spasms where the contractions are sustained for longer periods are usually treated with deep tissue massage, which effectively relaxes the spasm and facilitates greater blood flow and circulation.
Sciatica is a debilitating condition involving the sciatic nerve of the lower back. This nerve becomes compressed and causes excruciating pain. Our deep tissue massage can reverse the tightening and give the area more room to breathe. Endorphins are released into that part of the body, helping you feel better quicker.
PAIN IN HIP OR LEG
In your hip and leg, there are trigger points which can cause immense pain. That’s why you need deep tissue massage in this area. It allows our professionals to apply pressure to these areas gently and then gradually increase it. Sometimes, there are also painful adhesions which only deep tissue massage can effectively break down.
PAIN IN NECK AND SHOULDER
Neck and shoulder pain is never a pleasant experience to have to deal with. The worst kinds of neck and shoulder pain can also cause severe headaches to take place. Contrary to what some might believe, deep tissue massage for this area isn’t painful at all. It helps to already be in a relaxed state and then allowing our massage therapists to do what’s needed to treat your pain.
People who sit in the same place for long periods of time can develop much discomfort. This is called a postural distortion, and it happens when you don’t have the correct head and shoulder posture when carrying out everyday activities such as typing. Deep tissue massage corrects the abnormalities and tightness which can result from these unhealthy movements and positions.
PAIN IN ARM AND HAND
Every day, people have to use their arms and hands to perform many activities from opening containers and jars to sitting in front of the computer to work. All the wear and tear from these activities can cause tension to the hands and arms and cause the ligaments in both to tighten. You can reverse much of this process through deep tissue massage sessions with our professional massage therapists.
OTHER DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE BENEFITS
We know how much of an effect deep tissue massage can have on various parts of the body, but did you know the benefits extend even further than increased circulation or reduced pain? Let’s look at all the other different ways a deep tissue massage can benefit you!
LOWER CORTISOL LEVELS
There’s a reason why deep tissue massage often manifests in health benefits. Cortisol, or hydrocortisone, is a hormone produced by the body when stress levels are at their worst. Reducing cortisol helps you to relax and even lose weight. Muscles must be relaxed in order for the therapist to reach the deeper musculature.
STOP HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
The less tension and stress you have, the lower your blood pressure will be. Often after a deep tissue massage, there will be much more serotonin produced by your body, which is the feel-good chemical responsible for helping you feel a lot happier each day.
Much of chronic pain is a problem with excessive inflammation in the body. Deep tissue massage sessions increase blood flow and circulation so much to the point where swelling subsides. There’s less of a reason for your body to act up and get tense since the tissues, tendons, and muscles and associated tension are relieved.
IS DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE THE RIGHT OPTION FOR ME?
Deep tissue massage focuses greatly on targeting the deeper layers of muscle and soft tissue in your body, so it can be a little bit more intense for some looking for a more superficial experience. The best results happen after several rounds of deep tissue massage treatment and therapy. This kind of massage is great if you’re looking for an experience where you can:
Heal injuries faster
Get a stronger touch
Relieve chronic pain
Because of the therapeutic nature of deep tissue massage, you should be careful on some fronts before you have one. Here are a few precautions to remember:
Do not opt for deep tissue massage if you have been diagnosed with blood clots in the past since the massage may dislodge the clots. Talk to your doctor of you have or are at risk of forming blood clots.
Check with your doctor if you have had chemotherapy, radiation, recent surgery, or any medical condition. Also, avoid deep tissue massage if you have osteoporosis.
