I believe in the power of massage therapy. Most of my patients suffered severe trauma and injuries from car and motorcycle accidents. I am amazed at the relief my patients achieved with regular deep tissue massage. They are able to perform activities of daily living with little or no pain. Over the past 23 years I have seen amazing results. I am committed to holistic health care and drug free pain management.
Deep Tissue Massages require more pressure than your typical relaxing massage because it targets your deep muscle tissues and the tension that builds up. There are so many benefits of a Deep Tissue Massage, below are just to name a few. (Reference: Deep Relief Austin)
A deep tissue massage gets into the deep layer of the tissue on your body, which impacts blood flow. A recent study showed that massages have a positive impact on peoples systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial blood pressure readings.
A good massage also helps with back pain. A 2014 study from the Scientific World Journal found that deep tissue massages reduce pain in people with chronic symptoms better than painkillers.
Chronic stress and muscle tension cause inflammation, which can worsen your overall health. A deep tissue massage is a solution to all the stress life throws at you.
A massage also increases the production of oxytocin. This hormone is more or less your bonding hormone. It influences your social interactions and creates positive emotions. You?ve probably heard how endorphins make you happy, and that?s exactly what this massage does.
Scarring is natural. Have you ever picked at a scab and then a few days later it was a white scar? That?s your skin healing.
A deep tissue massage helps break down your internal and external scar tissue and helps muscles recover. Patients with burn scars found that the massage treatment results in less pain and itching, and a decrease in their scar thickness.
Pregnancy is a glorious thing, but being in excruciating pain is not.
Good news ladies! Getting a massage lowers anxiety. Women who received a massage before or during labor experience a decrease in depression, anxiety and back pain.
There?s a chance the massage will lower your labor time and amount of medication you need. The goal is to have a safe and healthy pregnancy all around.
Do you have a desk job?
Are you constantly pounding away on a keyboard? It might be time for a deep tissue massage to combat arthritis pain.
Depending on how far along your arthritis is, it can affect your quality of life. Massages improve pain, stiffness, your range of motion, and your overall hand grip. You shouldn?t be in pain, even if you?re trying to write something simple down a piece of paper.
It?s important to note that the massage is to complement to your doctor-prescribed arthritis treatment and it is not an actual treatment itself.
For those that have athletic kids, this is important!
Athletes are prone to muscle injury and soreness. Coaches, athletes, and professionals in sports medicine recommend getting a massage. The benefits are amazing: athletes increase their blood flow, reduce muscle tension, and have an increased sense of well-being.
Studies have shown that a massage can help an athlete?s overall performance, recovery and muscle injury prevention.
