    Deep tissue massage is often called a treatment, which is a specialized form of massage. Additionally it is known as"tonsillectomy" by some people. It is very popular in western medicine and often utilised in conjunction with other treatments, such as endoscopy, laser therapy and even surgery. Deep tissue massage is an aggressive massage technique which is mainly used to heal musculoskeletal problems, including sports injuries and strains. It involves gently applying sustained tight pressure to target the deepest layers of the muscles and soft tissues using slow, deep strokes.

    It was Dr. Edward Estes, a Chicago based massage therapist, who is thought to be the first to use deep tissue massage therapy inuary 4th century BC. He described the technique in detail in his book, The Physiology of the Human Body. His descriptions of the massage strokes used are very exact and have been used since almost unchanged. According to Estes the application of a constant pressure to a strained muscle is particularly beneficial in helping the blood flow and bringing relief to muscular tension. In fact, Estes’ technique was so effective that it was soon adopted by the Roman physician Hippocrates, and from there it flew across Europe and into the new world.

    While massage techniques were used by the early civilizations to cure injuries and prevent pain, the technique was not taken up by either the Indian or Chinese cultures until the 6th century AD. The Chinese medical records reflect that acupuncture has been prescribed by the royal courts. The use of acupuncture was widespread and has been practiced by both the Chinese and Indian societies. There’s also evidence of Indian nurses giving individualized deep tissue massage to children during the time of one, known as"khatas". "Khatas" were a welcome relief for crying babies.

    In ancient China, the concept of"chi" or"tqi" was introduced in the West. The concept behind the concept was that pain resulted from blockages within energy channels, which by applying gentle pressure to the body, these energy channels could be opened and the flow of energy could be restored. Early Chinese kneading techniques utilized easy movements of the hands and fingers to perform kneading. With time, these kneading techniques became more elaborate and included the use of oils, padded gloves, and ever-increasing pressure.

    The Swedish massage has existed nearly as long as the Swedish massage therapists. Both are very popular methods, even though the popularity of the Swedish technique is growing rapidly in North America, while the popularity of deep tissue massage has been constant for several years. The main difference between the two is in the focus on the muscles, rather than the joints. Swedish massage focuses on providing an assortment of massage treatment. Deep tissue focuses on the problem areas, using slow, circular movements to apply a specific therapeutic technique.

    Swedish massage therapists use their hands to massage the muscles, using the friction out of the hands to knead the muscles in a superficial way, or employing long strokes to massage the fascia. Since the muscles contract, the fascia is flexed, and the connective tissue is stretched out. When the muscles relax, this results in the smoothest relaxation of the muscle.

    While the deep tissue massage uses slow circular motions to apply pressure, the Swedish massage uses faster, firmer strokes to stimulate the pressure points between the muscle fibers. While the Swedish massage may use very direct pressure, it is more commonly utilized in conjunction with the pressures of the deep tissue massage. When the Swedish massage is applied, it’s usually performed with another technique such as shiatsu to relieve the tension that’s been built up in the muscles by the deep tissue massage.

    There are lots of health benefits of this type of therapy. One is the reduction of pain and stiffness caused by inflammation, anxiety, and tension. It will help to increase blood flow and decrease glucose levels in the body. Reducing inflammation also helps to protect the joints from injury. Reducing blood flow and decreasing blood sugar levels help to improve your overall health and are two of the most important benefits of deep tissue massage methods.
