Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage involves firm pressure being applied to the muscles and fascia. The use of long, deep techniques increases blood flow into the muscles and helps to release tension in them.
The pressure from deep tissue massage helps to signal the nervous system to "let go" of the muscles which leads to a sense of a reduction of tightness and stiffness.
Pressure applied to the muscle tissue has been shown to reduce inflammation and therefore reducing pain.
Most people who have deep tissue massage describe it as being good pain.
All practitioners at Muscle Therapy Australia provide deep tissue massage.
