Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue / Swedish Massage: A classic European massage involving the use of oils along with familiar long strokes, kneading, and other specializing techniques which are aimed at storing the balance and enhancing the function of the muscular, lymphatic, and circulatory systems. The effects of European massage when applied in the appropriate situation are:

  • Increased blood and lymph circulation: Several massage strokes increase the movement of blood and lymph. This may help clear interstitial spaces of metabolic waste products and increase the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissue.

  • Muscle relaxation: Massage therapy may relieve muscle spasm and cramps.

  • Adhesion removal: An adhesion exists when two tissues are joined by scar tissue following an injury or disease. Massage therapy may be effective in breaking down such adhesions.

  • Fibrosis alleviation: Fibrosis is formation of excessive or abnormal scar tissue after injury. Massage therapy may relieve this condition.

  • Pain Relief: Massage therapy may relieve pain, especially if it is caused by muscle spasm.

  • Respiratory drainage: Tapotement may help drain the bronchial tubes of mucus build-up.

  • Stress reduction: Many forms of massage therapy may promote general relaxation and reduction of physical, emotional, and mental stress. Given the prevalence of stress-related disorders, this may be one of it's most important benefits.
