Health Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
If you have tried having a massage session after a hard day’s work, you must know how good it feels, but why is it so? How does rubbing your joints and muscles help improve your health? As a professional with expertise in the field of deep tissue massage, I know the answers to those questions, and I will try to explain them in this article.
Massage had been rejected from science and medicine for long, but this is no longer the case. It’s now proven that deep tissue massage therapy reduces muscle cell inflammation and muscle tightness. Also, it helps improve the blood flow.
One of the first studies on the effects of massage therapy involved an experiment. A group of eleven male volunteers were given a series of biopsies of the muscle tissue to determine the effects of massage. The men were tested, then had to work out until they were fully exhausted. Then, one of the legs gets a deep tissue massage procedure while the other one just rests. Another couple of biopsies are then made on both legs, and the results were clear.
The intense work out session caused the muscles to exhaust, which leads to tiny tears in the muscle fibers. These tears lead to inflammation processes which are an immune reaction of the body. The inflammation causes pain, stiffness, and discomfort. The results showed that the massage procedures help improve the tissue’s recovery rate by stimulating the mitochondria in the cells. This helps the cells improve and reproduce a lot quicker.
So, a good deep tissue massage therapy can help you improve your posture, blood circulation, muscle fitness, body performance, endurance, and sensitivity to pain. As a result, your muscles can perform better, suffer less harm, and recover faster.
