Deep Tissue Massage in Urbanrehab Physiotherapy Clinics
Introduction to deep tissue massage -
Find yourself aching all over and constantly tired?
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.
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”.
when they are tensed (unrelaxed), they become tight and shortened (sub-optimal
length), they become difficult to move as they resist movement simply because
Sub-optimal Muscles = Sub-optimal Movement
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.
muscle tightness affects a whole range of people:
- Office workers
may often get a lot of tightness in the neck, shoulder and upper back, and
sometimes may have headaches caused by referred pain of trigger points
- People who
are often on the go often develop lots of pain in their heels, feet and ankles
because of the tightening of the muscles and fascia from prolonged standing and
walking and rushing
flyers often develop general tightness and ache globally from travel-related
issues (difficulty sleeping due to unfamiliar beds, sleep lag etc)
- And the
list goes on
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
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.
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.
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.
clinical sports massage helps to
the blood flow to tired muscles, accelerating down time and recovery
down the tight knots in our muscles by stretching and flushing them out
- bring the
flow of blood back to the heart and the lymphatic system, crucial to achieving
and maintaining a healthy balanced body
micro-tears, ruptures and strains (a tight and tired muscles are often impaired
due to adhesions, scar tissues and prevalence of lactic acid, which increases
risk of injury)
