Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

HomeBlogBenefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Here at HALO Salon & Spa, we offer a wide range of services designed to help you look and feel your best, and one of those services is deep tissue massage. As the name suggests, this type of massage is designed to target the deep layers of muscle and connective tissue and uses harder pressure and deeper strokes in order to do so. In this article, we’ll go over some of the benefits that this type of massage has to offer to help you decide whether to give it a try.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

  • Pain Relief. One of the benefits of deep tissue massage is pain relief, or at least pain reduction. This form of massage uses firm pressure and slow strokes to loosen “knots” in the muscle and fascia (connective tissue) and alleviate the tension and pain that they cause.
  • Stress Relief. On a related note, deep tissue massage is also great for reducing stress, as it alleviates many of the manifestations of stress in the body. Some common symptoms of stress are tight muscles, particularly around the shoulders and neck, as well as tension headaches. A massage will help loosen those muscles and release that tension, leaving you feeling much better and more relaxed.
  • Improves Range of Motion. A third benefit of deep tissue massage is improved range of motion, specifically when dealing with scar tissue. If you have scar tissue that is making your muscles stiff and limiting your ability to move, you can turn to our expert masseurs–the massage will improve your lymphatic circulation and drainage, which will help break up the scar tissue and give you greater flexibility.
