Deep Tissue Massage

This type of massage targets chronic patterns of tension in the body at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia (connective tissue). Deep tissue massage uses similar movements and techniques compared to a Swedish massage, however, the pressure will generally be more intense. This is a very focused type of work gear towards releasing chronic tension and trigger points that are inhibiting deeper circulation and sometimes range of motion.

Pain Relief

Deep tissue massages have been proven to reduce pain in the body by relieving tension that can continuously pull on already sore muscles. This type of massage works well on injuries or temporary pain but is also extremely beneficial in aiding chronic ailments such as arthritis pain, nerve problems like sciatica, and common tissue problems like plantar fasciitis.

Slo Massage is happy to offer deep tissue massage pain relief to clients in the San Luis Obispo, CA, area.

Injury Assistance

Along with general pain relief, a deep tissue massage can make recovery from previous injuries faster and easier. A deep tissue massage works to lessen or completely remove the scar tissue that builds up on muscles after an injury has occurred. When scar tissue is worked out of the system, muscles can move naturally and are less likely to get reinjured. These massages can even aid in posture and allow the body to work better than it did before the injury.

Mood Stabilizer

When done properly, a deep tissue massage professional can help you improve your overall mood. Deep tissue massage has also been known to increase the amount of serotonin and endorphins within the body, as well as lower cortisol levels — the most common stress hormone.

Increasing good hormones and decreasing stress hormones can help with problems related to depression and anxiety. Massages also aid in blood flow and circulation that can lower heart rates and blood pressure, making it even easier for positive mood hormones to make it to the brain.
