What Is Deep-Tissue Massage?
Deep-tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that works out knots and kinks deep in the muscles. These knots and kinks are usually the result of ongoing tightly held tensions, such as those that occur during a workday, resulting in your muscles hardening and freezing up, leaving you unable to relax and let go.
When you book a REMassage in Eagle Mountain, your massage therapist will use their hands, fingers and possibly their elbows to manipulate these knotted muscles, smoothing them out and leaving them long and soft again.
Why Choose Deep-Tissue Massage?
While many clients book massages for relaxation purposes, a massage with a deep-tissue masseuse is more therapeutic. Working out the knots and kinks in your muscles can be mildly uncomfortable, but you will see the benefits of this massage within minutes. Your once-tight muscles will have released the tension they were holding, allowing you to move freely once again.
It is natural to wonder how long the effects of a deep-tissue massage last, but the answer is often dependent upon the client themselves. Knots and kinks form in your muscles due to tension that is held for long periods of time. Encountering the same stressors without developing new relaxation techniques and coping mechanisms may result in the knots and kinks returning faster, necessitating another deep-tissue massage.
Some of our clients who come in for deep-tissue massages need only one or two per year, while others require one per month. Yoga, meditation and lifestyle changes can help a deep-tissue massage last longer.
Uses of Deep-Tissue Massage
While anyone can benefit from a deep-tissue massage, this type of massage therapy is especially helpful for chronic injuries. A deep-tissue massage helps relieve pain from car accidents, falls and work-related injuries.
Sports injury massage often utilizes deep-tissue techniques as well. A sports injury massage is not just for serious athletes either; we often treat distance runners, weekend cyclists and hikers with back, knee or ankle pain. In fact, sports injuries are more common among amateurs because they do not always condition properly and tend to practice their sport sporadically.
Sciatica pain massages also often take a deep-tissue approach. Sciatica, a pain that originates in the sciatic nerve in the buttocks and radiates down the leg, can be debilitating. Traditional Western medicine treats sciatica with powerful pain relievers, surgery and steroid injections — all of which make sciatic pain massage an attractive option.
