Deep tissue massage Watford will help you to treat muscle tightness

Deep tissue massage helps treat muscle tightness. Muscles can get tight due to muscle contractures and soft tissue damage. A deep tissue massage aims to release tension in the muscles and restore blood flow. Blood circulation is usually reduced in tight muscles and restricts movement. Deep tissue massage can use a range of techniques to restore range of movement, stimulate blood flow and loosen muscle fibres.

Deep tissue massage Watford will help you to treat chronic pain

Deep tissue massage helps with chronic pain. Pain can happen for several reasons. Chronic pain can develop slowly, sometimes for no obvious reason. It may even come on several months or years after a car accident, an injury or surgery. A deep tissue massage for chronic pain interrupts the cycle of chronic pain. When pain occurs, muscles get tight to protect an area. Range of movement becomes limited and blood circulation is poor. Deep tissue massage can help loosen tight muscles by realigning muscle fibres. Blood circulation is improved by increasing blood flow. Relaxation is promoted to reduce stress and anxiety related to chronic pain.

Deep tissue massage Watford will help you to treat high muscle tone

Deep tissue massage can be used to treat high muscle tone. High muscle tone is tension in the muscle when your body is at rest. The high tone in the muscles comes from an increase in excitatory messages from the nervous system. Excitatory messages travel down the spinal cord and into the nerves from the brain. Muscle tension is caused by the stimulation of nerves and muscle tone to increase. Muscle tone is reduced with deep tissue massage by increasing the temperature of soft tissues, blood circulation and breaking down adhesions.

Sports Injury Treatment Watford will help you to treat post-injury

Deep tissue massage also helps to treat post-injury. Deep tissue massage can be used after an injury or accident for rehabilitation. Deep tissue massage helps with post-injury to break down scar tissue, increase blood circulation, stimulate the healing process and improve range of movement. Around an injury scar tissue is usually formed as part of the healing process. Scar tissue is rigid or hard and can cause limited movement. Breaking down scar tissue and helping restore movement around an injury can be done with sports injury treatment & sports massage watford.

What are the benefits of a deep tissue massage in Watford?

Deep tissue massage has many benefits. The benefits of a deep tissue massage include:

  • Decreased tension
  • Reduced Pain
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved recovery

 

Decreased tension is one of the benefits. Tension is the state in which the muscles are semi-contracted for some time. If muscle tension increases it can cause pain, stiffness and restricted movement. A deep-tissue massage treatment can be effective in relieving muscle tension. A deep tissue massage helps to reduce the pain, increase the temperature of the soft tissues and improve relaxation and tissue elasticity.

A deep tissue massage for pain reduction. Pain can occur for many reasons. A deep tissue massage helps relieve hormones, when pain is released, reduces tension, and interrupts pain signals to the brain. A deep tissue massage helps by affecting the central nervous system. Endorphins are released which abolish pain sensations in the brain. It also helps reduce muscle tensions and stimulates mechanoreceptors in the body that, reduce spasms and pain.

Deep tissue massage is an effective for increasing flexibility. Long-standing or excessive repetition of static muscle movements makes tissues hard and short. Metabolism suffers because of hard tissue. Metabolism is the rate of great energy expenditure in our body. Metabolism rate refers in the muscles to the rate at which waste products are removed and important oxygen and nutrients are delivered. A deep tissue massage technique such as deep transverse strokes or kneading can pull elastic structures to their maximum length in all directions. This is important for maintaining essential elasticity in tissues which are constantly under pressure.

Deep tissue massage for improving recovery. A deep tissue massage can be an essential part of the recovery program. Massage such as deep tissue can also help sportspeople improve performance and prevent injuries. A deep tissue massage is beneficial to speed up recovery and is an important part of the training programme or after injury or surgery. A deep tissue massage helps to encourage the healing process of soft tissues in the body after injury. Massage encourages oxygen and nutrients to repair damaged cells and improve blood circulation.
