The Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Updated: Dec 8, 2022

Dear Our Shapecare Family,

It’s almost the end of the year, did you make the goal for 2022? What is the biggest lesson from 2021?

I hope we all have it figured out 🙂

Are you someone who works out regularly but only occasionally, if at all, gets a massage? If so, you are doing your body, and your workouts, a disservice. Anyone who works out four or more times each week should really include a deep tissue massage at least once every two weeks. If not, your muscles will be tight and your workouts will suffer. Don’t worry, deep tissue massage is one of our expertise and of course, Shapecare Therapy will always be there for you.

How does it work?

When the massage begins, our specialist usually starts with lighter pressure to warm up your muscles and then works into deeper pressure. The common techniques used in deep tissue massage therapy include stripping, which is deep pressure that glides along the length of your muscle fibers, and friction, which applies pressure across the grain of your muscle to break up adhesions and align tissue fibers.

What is the Benefit of Deep Tissue Massage at Shapecare Therapy?

1. Eliminate Pain.

Deep tissue massage will work out the knots from stressed, overworked muscles and connective tissue (fascia) to alleviate immediate pain, as well as chronic joint and muscle pain. It also promotes faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

2. Better workout.

Relaxed, less stressed muscles will give you an increased range of motion during your workouts. Your body will be far more efficient at building muscle and burning calories.

3. Better sleep.

Not only will regular massage help you feel good, but you’ll also sleep better due to less pain and a boost in serotonin.

4. Relaxed state of mind.

Research has shown that massage helps lower levels of stress hormones while at the same time boosting those “feel good” neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins.

5. Improve Overall Health.

Deep tissue massage positively affects your overall health by decreasing blood pressure and improving lung function.
