Deep Tissue Massage in Byron Bay

What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep Tissue Massage focuses on releasing deep layers of muscle tissue that creates adhesion, which causes pain.  It involves the application of deep pressure on affected areas that may be giving you temporary discomfort. This massage technique effectively treats chronic neck pains, back pains as well as shoulder and leg problems.

Deep Tissue Massage will support the break down of adhesions; relieving pain and increasing greater range of motion in the body.

Why might I need a Deep Tissue Massage?

Injury or overuse of muscles are the primary reasons you would have a Deep Tissue Massage.

If you over use your muscles repetitively as an athlete or a computer worker, muscle fibres build up and decrease your range of movement and cause chronic pain.  A therapist will work to lengthen the muscle fibres back to their original position before the body can restore its natural mobility and decrease pain.

When you have an injury your muscle fibres bond together in an effort to recover. This adhesion limits your movement and causes inflammation, resulting in the need to realign and repair the fibres back to their natural state. Deep Tissue Massage supports the realignment of fibres when they are torn from injury. These injuries and associated pains are common to athletes and sportspeople who push their muscles to the limits.

People who have poor body posture due to sedentary office jobs and people who lack a regular exercise routine can experience these pains too. They will also benefit greatly from a Deep Tissue Massage.

What are the Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage?

Treats Chronic Pains

It also increases the blood flow in your body, helping reduce painful inflammations. Deep tissue massage also helps treating your muscle tensions that limits your body movements.
