Deep Tissue Massage: Remedy Muscle Spasms More Effectively

By | January 15, 2018

Have those muscles been aching forever? Over the counter medications often don’t work, and nobody wants to be on long term prescription medication. If it is the stress of work, family, income, or just long-standing problems with muscle ache. You can try a deep tissue massage. Many of us don’t know what that is. Let me tell you more about deep tissue massage.

Have you ever had a massage? Not just a regular massage, but a deep tissue massage. Do you think this is something new? No, it is not a new medical breakthrough, this art has been practiced throughout the world. Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and even Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Massage is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue. This is done to enhance function and promote relaxation and well-being. There are so, so many versions of this massage therapy, over 250 to be precise. They include tapping, kneading, vibration, rocking, applying pressure to muscles, stroking and compression.

If you have pain for an on-going amount of time, it may be deep tissue problems. Deep tissue massage can alleviate many problems. Bands of painful tissue can cause muscle tension which can be serious, even debilitating. One must go deep beyond the surface, and may need a specialist in this field. Tools will be used to work on the area and there will be very specific localized rubbing. This goes into the connective tissue, and breaks up the painful area. Elbows as well as fingers are used.

As more people learn about the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy, this sort of employment is growing. As independent contractors, massage therapists usually have their own equipment which consists of special massage tables and chairs are used to position clients during massages. A typical commercial massage table has an easily cleaned, heavily padded surface, and a horseshoe-shaped head support that allows the client to breathe easily while lying face down and can be stationary or portable. This is cleaned between massages, keeping everything very hygienic. An orthopedic pillow or bolster can be used to correct body positioning. Sometimes, mats are used.

Anyway, you must find the correct type of deep tissue type of massage. Not only are there many ways and oils, but it can be cultural. It can be an international experience. You may find that Lomi Lomi massage in Hawaii, Samoan, Shiatsu, Thai or even Chinese massage suits your needs. If not, then maybe try Swedish massage. Whatever ails you, there is a massage that will suit you. Your pain, anxiety, depression and a variety of diseases can be relieved, whether temporary or permanent. There is no way to blind-test massage therapy, as the person being tested is going to be touched, and we cannot deny that the sense of touch is very therapeutic by itself. Be sure to try it out and find what type of massage works best for you!
