Release Muscle Tension and Improve Your Complexion
Deep tissue massage therapy from Skin Deep Body is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension and toxicities that can affect your cosmetic appearance, from skin tone to imperfections in your complexion. While it is based on Swedish massage and uses similar strokes, unlike Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage focuses on all muscle layers from the more superficial muscle layers to the very deepest ones. Deep tissue massage is a style of massage that is designed to get into the connective tissue of your body where toxins can be trapped, rather than just the surface muscles. By focusing on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (which are the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints) Deep Tissue Massage from Skin Deep Body is great for easing persistent muscle discomfort and improving your complexion and appearance. Deep Tissue Massage targets the deeper reaches of your aches and pains as well, releasing painful knots and reducing overall stiffness and discomfort.
Long Term Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
A recent study found that patient’s blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60-minute deep tissue massage, and additionally that massage modalities like deep tissue massage reduce stress hormone levels and lower your resting heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation benefits by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin. When our massage therapist performs deep tissue massage, they use a variety of techniques to deeply penetrate the muscles and fascia, loosening them and releasing tension, and dispelling toxins attached to these deeper regions of your musculature.
Release Tension and Relieve Stress
Like the name suggests, deep tissue massage targets your body’s deepest layers of muscle and releases tension in these overstressed areas, tension that translates into flaws in your skin tone, and pain in your body. When your muscles are severely knotted, this therapeutic treatment is designed to break up those toxic clusters of muscle tautness. Deep tissue massage is a mix of slow, short strokes and penetrating finger pressure focused on tight, contracted areas, employing thumbs, forearms, and even elbows to work muscle tissue and relieve tension, and it is a highly therapeutic and specific technique which is very effective in releasing restrictions of the deeper muscles. Although Deep Tissue Massage can be performed on the whole body, it often focuses on specific affected areas, so contact us today to set up your appointment, and release chronic patterns of tension and restore the structural and functional integrity of your musculoskeletal system.
