What are the Benefits of Massage?
Why not use regular massage by way of prevention rather than cure? Massage oxygenates the blood thereby improving blood flow to the brain and dramatically increasing energy levels. Increased circulation of oxygenated blood to the muscles promotes healing and the drainage of toxins. This helps strengthen the immune system and reduces illness and absenteeism. It relieves stress related conditions as it promotes deep relaxation. It eases stiffness and discomfort of postural tension by stretching and warming the muscles as well as deeper work to remove fibrous knots and congestion. Deeper tissue work is particularly good for those who regularly participate in sports and those who have a sedentary lifestyle. Focusing on problem areas. Working with the Skeletal system, Musclar system, Lymphatics system, Circulatory system, using techniques such as muscle energy technique (MET) otherwise known as active release techniques (ART) and soft tissue release (STR) vibration therapy to shake loose tension in soft tissue to allow increased circulation.
The most common benefits are:
- Increase in energy levels and morale
- Instant relief for upper back problems
- Reduction in the likelihood of repetitive strain injuries and upper body muscular tension
- Decrease in headaches and back pain
- Release of tension in the back, neck & shoulders
- Identification of staff who may be at risk of muscular-skeletal conditions

2 thoughts on “Deep Tissue Massage”
Hi Jill, depending on where you are experiencing the pain, how long you have had it there are a number of options. I would generally start by using Turn for the Better as my assessment tool, to assess what is dysfunctional be it structural or muscular. Then work on whichever is not functioning, and finish off with deep tissue massage. Hope this helps
Most certainly this is the area of treatment I specialise in. But my son has been rushed into hospital yesterday with a bleed on the brain, can I contact you when I know my plans.
Many thanks Paul
