If you are an athlete with a high daily demand on your body or you are recovering from an injury or illness, it is likely that the benefits of deep tissue massage have some favours to offer you;
Massages have been used for thousands of years around the world to reduce physical and psychological stress. And today, research continues to show that, whether used alone or in combination with other treatments, massage therapy is an effective way to help treat common conditions such as arthritis, anxiety and chronic low back pain.
The main objective of deep tissue massage is to reduce pain and discomfort while improving the body’s ability to heal itself.
Reduce Stress, Anxiety And Muscle Tension
Inflammation caused by chronic stress and muscle tension can worsen overall health, prolong recovery time, reduce immune function and cardiovascular problems, such as high blood pressure. Studies have found that massage therapy can help reduce cortisol levels and even increase the production of the hormone oxytocin, which relaxes the body and has calming effects.
