What deep tissue massage is?

that target the deepest layer of skin, muscles, and tissue. Deep tissue
massage Gig Harbor WA is a slightly uncomfortable massage as it involves

Principles involved in managing pain by deep tissue massage

We are confident when we say that our deep tissue massage is your perfect solution when you are tired of having medications and painkillers all the time. Wondering how we are this confident? Well, because we follow all the principles and techniques used in this massage that ensure the alleviation of pain.
  • Pressure application
    First and foremost, to access the deeper layers of tissue, our therapist first applies firm pressure and slowly moves across the muscle grain. You may don’t know but adhesions are bands of stiff tissue that impede movement and cause discomfort and irritation. This pressure aids in their breakdown. Thus, by reviving the flexibility of the muscles, our massage therapist helps you heal faster thus easing the pain.
  • Tissue manipulation
    Expert manipulation is used in our deep-tissue massage to relieve long-term muscle tightness. To apply pressure to particular locations, our therapists frequently use their fingers, thumbs, elbows, or specialized equipment. Moreover, they might use stretches to lengthen muscles and increase flexibility, which can lessen pain and facilitate greater movement. This manipulation is super beneficial for you if you are an athlete and suffer from old injuries that apparently have healed but pain comes up upon physical exertion.
  • Improving blood circulation
    The improvement of blood circulation is a noteworthy component of deep tissue massage’s pain-relieving effects. By increasing blood flow, the applied pressure helps the muscles receive more oxygen and nutrients. Toxins and metabolic waste products that have accumulated in the tissues are removed with the help of improved circulation, which lessens inflammation and discomfort. Moreover, improved blood circulation aids with the detoxification of the cells, getting rid of the toxins which aids with the inflammation and lessens the pain.
  • Natural painkillers
    release Furthermore, the body’s natural painkillers, endorphins, are released when our therapist performs our signature deep tissue massage Gig Harbor. As neurotransmitters, endorphins lessen pain perception and increase sensations of well-being and relaxation. This physiological reaction to massage is a normal one that helps control pain by calming the nervous system and bringing about a feeling of relaxation. Although this sensory release is related to other massage kinds too, pressure plays a critical role here. So, you can expect to have more thorough pain management compared to other massage types.

Concept of good pain

It’s important to remember that although deep-tissue massage is beneficial in managing pain, the level of pressure used throughout the session may occasionally be uncomfortable. A “good pain” experience is when a client feels uncomfortable during the massage but eventually feels better afterward. To guarantee that the pressure used stays within the client’s comfort zone while successfully addressing the underlying issues, we emphasize the communication between the therapist and the client.

Threshold limit

As a client, you have to be open with our massage therapist to make sure that the massage you are getting does not exceed your threshold limit. As for the threshold limit, every individual has a certain limit to bear the discomfort or temporary pain. As deep tissue massage involves a certain level of pressure feeling discomfort is a must. However, you have to be clear with your massage therapist about what you can bear and what not.

Consistency and aftercare

Consistency and aftercare are crucial if you want to get the most out of deep tissue massage for pain relief. Having regular sessions promotes muscular health and guards against the recurrence of chronic pain. Furthermore, you can extend the benefits of the massage and speed up your recovery by following our therapist’s instructions on stretching, applying ice or heat to the affected area, and drinking plenty of water. Long story short, with our thorough deep tissue massage session and following all your therapist’s instructions you can conquer your pain and enjoy a pain-free healthy body.
