Deep Tissue Massage: Remedy Cramps Sooner

By | April 18, 2018

Have those muscles been aching forever? Over the counter medications often don’t work, and nobody wants to be on long term prescription medication. If it is the stress of work, family, income, or just long-standing problems with muscle ache. You can try a deep tissue massage. Many of us don’t know what that is. Let me tell you more about deep tissue massage.

Massage is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue. This is done to enhance function and promote relaxation and well-being. If you are looking to modern medicine to cure your issues, maybe you are looking in the wrong place. The art of massage dates way back, back to over 3000 years. It has been documented by the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians. They all applied forms of massage for many ailments. Hippocrates even wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Are you interested in finding how this art of massage is practiced? Many, many, many methods, over 250 to be precise, are used. Some of these are tapping, kneading, vibration, rocking, applying pressure to muscles, stroking and compression!

On-going pain may be caused by deep tissue trouble. There is a specialty type massage that can help with these problems. Muscle tissue can become tight and cause aches and pains. This can be very hard to get rid of, and can get only temporary pain relief from medications. We have to look beyond the surface and treat the deep tissue with deep tissue massage which involves localized rubbing with fingers or/and elbows and will use tools such as ceramic or wood.

As more people learn about the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy, this sort of employment is growing. As independent contractors, massage therapists usually have their own equipment which consists of special massage tables and chairs are used to position clients during massages. A typical commercial massage table has an easily cleaned, heavily padded surface, and a horseshoe-shaped head support that allows the client to breathe easily while lying face down and can be stationary or portable. This is cleaned between massages, keeping everything very hygienic. An orthopedic pillow or bolster can be used to correct body positioning. Sometimes, mats are used.

Anyway, you must find the correct type of deep tissue type of massage. Not only are there many ways and oils, but it can be cultural. It can be an international experience. You may find that Lomi Lomi massage in Hawaii, Samoan, Shiatsu, Thai or even Chinese massage suits your needs. If not, then maybe try Swedish massage. Whatever ails you, there is a massage that will suit you. Your pain, anxiety, depression and a variety of diseases can be relieved, whether temporary or permanent. There is no way to blind-test massage therapy, as the person being tested is going to be touched, and we cannot deny that the sense of touch is very therapeutic by itself. Be sure to try it out and find what type of massage works best for you!
