Deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as chronic muscle pain and injury rehabilitation. The list of conditions that can be effectively treated is extensive and includes whiplash and repetitive strain, postural problems and sciatica, sports injury and recovery from falls, muscle tension or spasm in the gluteus, hamstrings, quads, rhomboids, and upper back. It’s also recommended for fibromyalgia pain with an improvement in the range of motion often noticeable immediately. The benefits aren’t just muscle and pain-related, deep tissue massage treatment can lower blood pressure, heart rate and stress hormone levels. Massage is good for the mind as well as the body boosting mood and helping you relax.
