Deep Tissue Massage; The Pain That Hurts So Good!

A Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage Can Help You Reduce Chronic Pain Symptoms And Break Up Scar Tissue!

Have you ever had a cavity that became so painful that you needed to seek a dentist?

Did you feel it coming on? Most likely not; muscle pain and dysfunction is very similar in nature, you may not feel it initially until the pain becomes so great, that you seek a doctor and all he or she does is prescribe pain killers and muscle relaxants. Pain killers and muscle relaxants will only treat the pain symptoms not the root cause of your pain.

Roman Paradigm Massage & Therapy specializes in deep tissue and trigger point therapy massageWhat is Deep Tissue Massage?

The primary goal for deep tissue massage is to restore a balanced upright posture, decrease symptoms of pain, break down scar tissue/muscle adhesion’s and improve your range of motion. It is a massage technique that works on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.

Similar to a Swedish/Relaxation massage in that a deep tissue massage uses slower strokes but is much firmer strokes and pressure are used. Your therapist may use deep finger/thumb, elbows or knuckle’s for added pressure that focuses on particular areas of your body.

When, your body is experiencing chronic muscle tension or suffering from a past injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid connective tissue) in, on and around the muscles, their tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block blood, oxygen and waste product circulation this can cause pain, limit your range of movement, and cause inflammation.

A tight muscle is like a light bulb that when, you go to switch it off, it stays on. These muscles are continuously contracted; working when they should be off or at rest.

A weak or inhibited muscle is like a light bulb that when, you go to switch it on it just flickers on and off. These muscles are not working or firing properly even when, you call upon them to. Robert Vignoli

Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement of muscles and tendons. Deep tissue massage is a blanket term that describes a number of different massage techniques (see list below). This massage can be a little intense and painful but so is the pain that you have currently. Let us help you break up fibrous connective tissue that is making you tight and feeling restricted.

Deep tissue massage helps to relax muscles, removes waste products, increases oxygen and blood flow into your muscles. This helps your body remove toxins and metabolic wastes from sore and overworked muscles. Allowing them to recover from more quickly by circulating oxygen rich blood into the working muscles.

Deep tissue massage is often used to treat people who are recovering from accidents, and for sports injuries as it increases blood circulation in muscles that are underused. It also relieves chronic muscle tension throughout the body, and can also break down scar tissue and “knots or trigger points” deep in the muscle belly.

A deep tissue massage can help with…

  • Overuse syndromes - these are probably the most common, repetitive strain injuries happen so often because they are job related in most cases.
  • Sports injuries - if you play sports and do not stretch often, you will be subject to muscles becoming tight, overworked or traumatize by the high impact of physical activity or a fall.
  • Car accidents - car accidents often cause more pain and dysfunction that what you initially feel or become aware of. An automobile is built to take a slow 5 to 10 mph crash, this is not necessarily true for your body. Even in a low impact accident a person’s soft tissue can be damaged. The back and neck are the usual problem spots for soft tissue injuries.
  • A lack of sleep - your body isn’t healing properly during your deep sleep (non-REM sleep). This prevents your brain from getting the deep restorative sleep it needs to generate enough growth hormones. And it is the growth hormones that your body needs to keep muscles healthy.
