Benefits of a Deep Tissue Massage
Improves Blood Flow
Deep tissue massage/sports massage increases the flow of blood through the body. It helps to reduce the inflammation associated with pain.
Decrease Muscle Tension
Deep tissue massage/sports massage can also help alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening the tight tissue clusters.
Often we hold our stress either in our lower back or in our neck and shoulders.
A Deep-tissue massage works on these tight muscles which helps to ease stress and tension.
Recovery from Mechanical Injury
Deep tissue massage helps to improve recovery from injury, muscle soreness, tightness and spasms from physical activity
Deep tissue massages are effective in the case of overuse syndromes. Repetitive strain injuries often tend to be job-related and are very common. Certain postural muscles become over-used when sat at a desk for long periods of time, this leads to neck/shoulder and lower back pain.

Breaks Up Scar Tissue
Over time, deep tissue massage therapy can help break up and eventually erase scar tissue in the body. It does this by improving lymphatic circulation and drainage to improve flexibility and range of motion in the affected area.
