Deep tissue massage: techniques and benefits

31.01.2024

Deep tissue massage is one of the most effective and safest techniques to get rid of connective tissue deformities. It provides deep muscle development that can’t be achieved with the other techniques. The Royal Thai Spa salons pay special attention to such services, and connective tissue massage is performed by specialists with great experience.

About half of the human body is made up of connective tissue. It supports and connects all the organs. When people lead a sedentary lifestyle or get injured, sooner or later this manifests itself in inflammation of the fascia and tension, and poor circulation. When muscles become weak in one area, other parts of the body are affected. That's why it's so important to pay attention to your health and include a deep tissue massage in your routine, at least occasionally.

The main goal of this technique is to restore the normal shape of tendons, ligaments, and fascia. Essentially, we are talking about the work with so-called “squeezed” tissues. This method is often used for back and lower back pain. Deep tissue massage targets inflamed fascia, eliminating muscle tension and pain.

One of the main indications for soft tissue injuries massage is myofascial syndrome. This technique is also recommended for:

  • osteochondrosis, scoliosis;
  • cerebral palsy;
  • rehabilitation after stroke, various operations, and injuries;
  • respiratory diseases;
  • metabolic disorders and in many other cases.

Soft tissue massage can also be used for frequent headaches, nervous exhaustion, and to relax the body in stressful situations. It is prescribed as an additional tool to physiotherapy and exercise therapy.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage Sessions 

Massage in case of soft tissue bruises, stinging or chronic pain gives a feeling of relief after 2-3 sessions. Due to the fact that the massage therapist, with the help of certain manipulations, relieves excess muscle tone, influences the strong production of tissue hormones and metabolism improvement, the discomfort goes away much faster.

This technique is used when focusing on a specific issue. Such massage procedures contribute to:

  • speedy rehabilitation after injuries and stroke;
  • posture improvement;
  • back and lower back pain elimination;
  • increase of muscles, fascia and ligaments elasticity;
  • muscle corset strengthening, reducing the spine vulnerability;
  • elimination of swelling;
  • blood circulation improvement;
  • normalization of pressure;
  • activation of the internal organs operation.

In addition, a course of deep body massage has a positive effect on the nervous system. Just after the first sessions, nervous tension and headaches go away, sleep improves, and stress resistance increases. The number of courses depends on the problem and its complexity.

The effectiveness of deep tissue massage lies in the fact that the specialist intentionally affects the problem area. Massage therapists at Royal Thai Spa salons have the necessary knowledge and practical skills that allow such manipulations to be deep, but painless.

Available techniques

Deep tissue massage techniques radically differ from the classical technique. However, they are used in many cases, starting from the problems caused by age-related changes to the heavy physical work or prolonged static loads consequences. People who work on the computer are recommended to regularly visit the massage room for preventive purposes.

Common deep tissue massage techniques include:

  • muscle development;
  • rubbing.

For a deep massage, the massage therapist uses the fingertips and knuckles, thumbs, palms, elbows and forearms. Often, massage room visitor is required to breathe deeper when highly tense areas are being worked on. Massaging can be painful when the specialist works on the areas where there are adhesions or scar tissue.

There may be a feeling of stiffness or pain after the session, which should subside during the day. Experts also advise drinking more water to speed up and facilitate the process of recovery. Correct work with connective tissues provides a lasting therapeutic effect with minimal risk of side effects. Regular sessions contribute to the overall body health.
