Deep tissue massage from your San Jose massage therapist is a specialized type of massage therapy that focuses on deep layers of muscle in your body. As with all types of massage therapies, deep tissue massage offers numerous benefits.
There are studies that have concluded that deep tissue massage therapy is more effective and is also more affordable than conventional methods of treating chronic pain. Deep tissue massage therapy increases the flow of blood through the body and helps reduce the inflammation, which is what causes pain. This type of massage also relieves tense muscles, which is often a side effect of chronic pain.
Is your blood pressure a little too high? You might want to consider deep tissue massage. Studies have shown that deep tissue massage therapy can reduce blood pressure by as much as 10 points.
Over a period of time, deep tissue massage can break up and eventually erase the scar tissue on your body. In addition to being a source of ongoing pain and stiffness, scar tissue can also affect your range of motion.
After a stressful day at work, the perfect remedy to frayed nerves is a deep tissue massage. And for those people who suffer chronic stress, you can get much-needed relief with deep tissue massage therapy. You owe it to yourself to feel the pressures of the day simply melt away.
Deep tissue massage is also a great treatment for injured muscles as it eases the pain and promotes healing.
