Deep tissue massage can improve flexibility by loosening up tight tender points. Muscles and joints that have become stiff from overuse, injury or a disease such as fibromyalgia, become more relaxed after being manipulated and left to heal, allowing patients more mobility and range of motion.
Deep Tissue Massage is ideal if you experience aches and pains in and around the spine (particularly office workers and travellers) and is extremely good post injury. This is the best massage to maintain the health of your body as it eliminates muscle spasm which builds up with stress and strain. The strokes used are similar to those in a Swedish Massage except more pressure is used and it uses cross grain strokes (strokes that go across the gain of the muscles instead of with the grain).
