Introduction to deep tissue massage -
Find yourself aching all over and constantly tired?
Do you find yourself oftentimes tired and aching all over without a definite and clear reason why? Or that you find yourself getting and more injuries even though you don’t participate intensely in sports? Don’t be surprised to find out that the thing that is contributing to all your ache and fatigue woes is also the same thing that will help increase your performance – your very own muscles.
For muscles to function at their optimal level, they need to be relaxed, well rested and at their optimal lengths. When they are not relaxed, well rested and at sub-optimal lengths, it’d take you a lot more effort to get the same level of productivity and performance from them on a “good day”.
You see, when they are tensed (unrelaxed), they become tight and shortened (sub-optimal length), they become difficult to move as they resist movement simply because they’re tight.
Sub-optimal Muscles = Sub-optimal Movement
Almost every one of us have sub-optimal muscles – we all have muscles that are shortened, tight and unrested (this problem is multiplied if you have high psychological and physically straining jobs) because of poor posture, repeated strains and high stress.
You know, muscle tightness affects a whole range of people:
In a nutshell, all these muscle tightness will cause you to take more effort to get the same amount done. Example being a 20 minute assignment may take you 30 – 40 minutes simply because you need to rest more often/exert more force. Same work but more time needed. You will need more time of sleep just to get the same amount of energy than before – you will begin to see how this can all spiral out of control very quickly.
Deep Tissue Massage for Healthier and Productive Muscles
Beyond just stretching, tight and tense muscles will benefit much from regular deep tissue massage which is able to prevent “those tight spots” in your muscles.
Most of the time, patients don’t know the difference between clinical deep tissue massage versus the regular massage services and the benefits they carry. Clinical deep tissue massage entails two segments – a “clinical” segment and a “deep tissue massage” segment – it is a massage system combining solid massage techniques with clinical knowledge and techniques for therapeutic purpose.
Our muscles doesn’t just contain muscle fibres – truly, it is a super complex multi-structured physiological system containing fascia, blood vessels, nerves and other connective tissues. It’d require more clinical and advanced techniques to manage the smooth functioning of this muscle super-complex.
