So the health benefits of deep tissue massage are many. From the very beginning just getting your muscle tissue to have less knots and adhesions, getting the joints to have more motion. Actually by reducing some of that scar tissue in the muscles around the joints, you can actually get a lot more range of motion. It assists in your posture, it assists in reducing all of those little aches and pains that we all have in different areas. There are actually a lot of muscular conditions that can be treated through deep tissue massage. I’m not sure a lot of people know this, from things like carpal tunnel to thoracic outlet syndrome, to sciatica, to pseudo-sciatica, whiplash. Deep tissue is incredible for treating you after you’ve been in an auto accident, and a lot of people don’t know that they can actually get treated with massage after they’ve been in an auto accident. The list goes on forever. If you have some kind of a condition related to one of your muscles, or even sometimes, many of your joints are affected by the muscle around the area. It can commonly be treated with massage therapy.
