At Healing Touch Charlotte, Inc licensed massage therapists successfully use Deep Tissue Massage technique.
What Is Deep Tissue Massage?
It is a full body massage that deeply manipulates the muscles and the connective tissue called fascia. A massage therapist uses fingers, hands, and elbows to break up the tension in muscles. The deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension because it reaches muscles located below the surface of the top muscles and loosens up trigger points, or adhesions that exist in the muscles and fascia. This provides better circulation of blood and relieves deep-seated muscle pain, relaxing the body.
Deep tissue massage was known and used by ancient Greeks and Egyptians who were the first to discover its benefits.
Modern medicine started to make use of Deep Tissue Massage in 1949, after the Canadian physician Therese Phimmer described the technique guidelines in her book “Muscles – Your Invisible Bonds.” She successfully used Deep Tissue Massage therapy to treat paralysis of her legs and established the ‘Deep Tissue Therapy Clinic‘.
Nowadays Deep Tissue Massage is used by massage therapists throughout the world and helps millions of people to forget about chronic pain and old injuries.
