In the world of massage there exists a variety of styles – everything from Swedish massage to Lymphatic massage, all tailored to produce very specific results.
One such massage technique, deep tissue massage, has continued to increase in popularity, due in part to its ability to release an enormous amount of tension in a world where tension reigns on every corner.
In many cases, a deep tissue massage has replaced the classic Swedish massage in terms of frequency of use.
Whereas visitors to any spa around the country may have traditionally sought out a massage that simply relaxed, now they are seeking a massage that also stimulates, conditions, and heals.
Those suffering from certain conditions may also find deep tissue massage to be quite therapeutic.
Sufferers of chronic pain, fibromyalgia, edema, muscle cramping, and even carpal tunnel syndrome may find significant relief from deep tissue massage.
The pressure exerted on different groups of muscle tissue stimulates circulation in areas of pain.
