Classic forms of massage therapy tend to focus on comfort and relaxation. Deep tissue massage is more centrally focused on correction and rehabilitation than creating a comfortable, soothing experience. The firm pressure applied during a deep tissue massage helps guide the realignment of the deeper layers of muscle and assist in undoing any of the connective tissue that may be knotted along those muscles.
Stimulating the deeper layers of muscle and multiple types of tissues can release toxins that can build up in knots from stress and pain. Allowing these toxins to build up without ever expressing or releasing them can have serious effects on your client’s general health. Manual stimulation is an efficient way to clear the toxins that dietary cleanses and healthy living can sometimes miss.
