Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage?

Many people have been asking me the questions, is there any real benefit of deep tissue massage and what are they? As a practicing Sports Therapist I have seen first hand the many benefits of deep tissue massage, below are 5 of the best ones:

  1. It Enhances Circulation, allowing vital nutrients and energy to the muscle. It assists in the removal of waste products like lactic acid to help the rate of recovery.
  2. Increases flexibility and tissue elasticity of the muscle group as well as the connective tissue around the muscles. This releases any tension within the muscle.
  3. Removal of scar tissue from previous injuries which might be inflexible and help prevent a reoccurring injury.
  4. Reduce pain by removing tension and waste products which can pain and encourage the release of endorphins.
  5. Relaxation and reduction in anxiety is caused as a therapeutic effect of the massage.
