Deep Tissue

Work Out Tension with a Deep Tissue Massage

If the stressors of everyday life are too much and relief seems a huge stretch, it might be time to carve out some space in your busy schedule and invest in a deep tissue massage. In addition to the health benefits and calm state of mind that you achieve during a yoga class at iMatrix Yoga Division in San Diego, deep tissue massage can help relieve muscle strain. Although any type of massage is sure to prove therapeutic, the deep tissue variety is exceptional in its ability to offer increased focus, while minimizing the anxiety currently plaguing your on-the-go lifestyle.

What Is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue refers to a type of massage in which your massage therapist focuses on sites of chronic muscle tension resulting from a stressful lifestyle. The ultimate goal is for the massage therapist to relax and stretch your tense muscles, using intense pressure to physically break down the bands of rigid tissue responsible for continued pain. The same general techniques seen in standard massage are still applied, but with a slower pace and an increased focus on the most tension-filled areas of the body. Your San Diego massage professional will focus on the parts of your body where you report feeling the most discomfort, changing the pressure if needed.

Benefits of the Deep Tissue Approach

The most immediate benefit of deep tissue massage is the elimination of rigid tissue from muscles and ligaments. When allowed to build up over time, this tissue can lead to chronic pain in the neck, shoulders and lower back. This pain is problematic in and of itself, but it also is capable of manifesting itself negatively in every other area of the sufferer's life. If you’re experiencing chronic muscle pain, you may also notice decreased mobility, difficulty in reaching full range of motion in a formerly accessible stretch routine, and the inability to maintain mental focus. Most alarmingly, you may also see an increase in the severity of such conditions as carpal tunnel and fibromyalgia.

The proactive nature of deep tissue massage in San Diego allows participants to prevent a wide array of problems before they become unbearable. Additionally, the increased focus on points of pain makes deep tissue massages ideal for anyone recovering from sports injuries. This reality may explain why dozens of prominent athletes make a point of investing in regular deep tissue massages.

Between its direct targeting of chronically painful areas and its overarching therapeutic approach, iMatrix Yoga Division recommends that you consider deep tissue massage and its plethora of clear benefits. Whether you're dedicated to sports, recovering from an injury or struggling with everyday stressors, you'll be amazed at how quickly the deep tissue approach can transform your life after just a single massage. Making massage a part of your life can provide ongoing health benefits and stress relief, especially when combined with another stress-relieving activity like yoga.
