5 Huge Health Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
Studies show that massage benefits people of all ages, both manual therapy and deep tissue. As for deciding between the two, it all depends on what your body needs at the moment.
Dr. Ammon Jacobson of Smith Chiropractic in Colorado Springs offers both manual and deep tissue massage therapy with a specialty in trigger point release. There are many health benefits of massage. Here are the top five.
The Benefits of Massage
Muscle Health - Muscles need to be loose and strong to achieve optimal health. The challenge is it’s easy to get tight and knotted. Our massages safely stretch muscles, reduce pain, and boost blood flow.
Pain Reduction - Whether chronic pain, an injury or a health condition, massage alleviates tension through various techniques.
Stress Relief - Stress creates full-body tension, often growing acute in specific areas, like the back and neck, and spikes cortisol levels. Massage helps your body swap out cortisol for the soothing relaxation hormone called oxytocin.
Joint Health - All the time spent sitting in front of a computer is unhealthy for the spine and your joints, causing tightness and loss of flexibility among other issues. Massage works out the stiffness, restores range of motion, and helps your body keep your joints well lubricated.
Musculoskeletal Conditions - Deep tissue massage provides pain relief and empowers the body to recover from many painful conditions like sciatica, chronic back pain and fibromyalgia.
