Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage for Clients and Massage Therapists

09 Aug 2012

The benefits of various massage techniques are extensive:  it dilates superficial blood vessels, increases the rate of blood and lymph flow, reduces muscle spasms and muscle soreness, and accelerates physical repair. Specific benefits are being attributed to deep tissue massage.  Some of those benefits include:

  • Temporary compression of tissue, facilitating an increase in blood flow to areas that previously had a low blood supply.
  • Improvement of joints range of movement, especially when stretching techniques are included.
  • Treatment of trigger points.
  • Increased blood flow to an area prior to other treatment.
  • Decrease of tone in muscles and assists in the treatment of cramping.
  • Addressing issues of muscle imbalance by lengthening targeted muscles.
  • Stretching of muscle and fascia.
  • Certain techniques used can improve muscle function where damaged muscle fibers have been adversely adhered.

There are also benefits for the massage therapist and therapeutic bodywork professional:

  • Therapists have an additional treatment tool, which can help increase their client base.
  • It might be a less strenuous way to apply massage because it relies on body weight and leverage more than movement or strength.
  • Use of forearms means the massage therapist is less likely to suffer from injuries due to overuse of the fingers, wrists, and thumb joints.
  • It’s safer for therapists who are personally more hyper-mobile in their upper limb joints.
  • Therapists can treat clients in offices and can possibly adapt some of the techniques for chair massage routines.
