Deep tissue massage techniques benefit by releasing the chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction on the contracted or stiff muscle areas. Basically when the muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients from reaching the deeper tissue structures of the muscles, hence causing inflammation of the muscles and toxins build up in the muscle tissue. This massage therapy loosen the muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and enables proper blood and oxygen circulation in the body. Hence, it can cure variety of different medical problems including muscle spasm, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, sports related injuries and mobility problems.
Since many toxins are released, it's essential to drink enough water after the massage session to help eradicate the toxins and wastes from the body.
Because massage and bodywork directly or indirectly affects every system of the body, it promotes health, prevents illness and injury, and speeds recovery.
Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat postsurgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.
