History of Deep Tissue Massage
Experts believe Deep Tissue Massage, focusing prolonged pressure on the inner layers of muscle tissue to break up adhesion or “knots”, was first used by the Egyptians and brought to the United States around 1880. The earliest English based rules and techniques were established by Canadian physician Therese Phimmer in the 1949 book “Muscles — Your Invisible Bonds”. Deep Tissue Massage is now used by sports medicine practitioners, muscular therapists and licensed massage therapists for repairing soft tissue injuries or chronic pain.
The Essentials of Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage manipulates the muscle connective tissue called fascia to break up areas stuck together forming “knots”, increasing circulation and releasing toxins trapped in adhesive knots.
The motions in Deep Tissue Massage are similar to the Swedish Massage, however, the motions are against the muscular grain. The style often employs the use of elbows or other tools such as ceramic to focus pressure on a specific area. Generally, more pressure is used than traditional massage, yet, this is typically adjusted to the clients comfort. Deep Tissue Massage can be uncomfortable, but never painful. Please consult your therapist regarding the use of Deep Tissue techniques and your special attention needs. Soreness is possible if prolonged and deep pressure is preferred by the client.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage can provide relief from pain and stiffness associated with sports injuries, whiplash, osteoarthritis, muscle spasms, fibromyalgia and strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Multiple sessions may be required for maximum effect. Deep Tissue Massage should never be used on clients with infectious skin diseases, open wounds or rash, or following surgery.
