Deep Tissue Massage
Release Toxins from Your Body
Deep tissue massage is a massage that concentrates on healing your muscles from any pain and tension. This is not a relaxing massage, it is a massage that actually hurts when you are getting it and you may even feel the pain till the day after your massage because the body will pass through a healing crisis, so keep in mind that it will get worse before it gets better. After the healing crisis because of the greatly increased blood flow you will feel much more relaxed and you will actually sleep better at night.
Deep tissue massage is used to treat sports injuries, alleviate chronic pain and tension, and break up those tough areas we like to call ‘knots’. This form of massage can improve your condition greatly, especially when it is used in conjunction with other forms of therapy, like deep heat or ultrasound.
If you did not do it already, talk to your doctor to see if your condition will permit getting this type of massage. Your doctor may agree or not depending on the severity of your injury and how long your rehab is taking. If he feels it will help you along then he will approve it.
If he does approve it find someone who is licensed and has experience in giving this type of massage. This will be hard work for both of you and you want someone who is professional and knows what they are doing. Your doctor may even have someone they can recommend to you. Do not be afraid to ask.
Let the massage therapist know that you are under the care of a physician and are starting this to work hand in hand with your other therapies. Let them know what medications you are on and if you have any other underlying medical conditions.
How it has to be done
If the therapist knows her job well she will start with minimal pressure and work up to the actual deep pressure that is most beneficial. There is no need in jumping right off the deep end and making you not want to go back. Just like anything else, you need to find what works for you and she needs to be patient and guide you to that point.
During the massage take deep breaths and try not to tense up during your massage. Deep breathing will keep the oxygen flowing and help the muscles relax and heal. Do not do anything too strenuous after your massage, with the muscles in such a relaxed state, they could easily tear and cause more pain. So, relax and take care of yourself after your massage.
Deep pressure will help release toxins from the injured area and make sure to drink a lot of water and maybe soak in a hot bath to relieve any soreness you may experience afterwards. Epsom salts are a good old-fashioned way to relieve pain also. Put about two cups in a bath full of warm water and soak for about 20 minutes.
Along with a good diet and some daily exercise, a good deep tissue massage can go a long way to reduce the effects of stress and tension on your body.
