Deep tissue massage actually has some impressive benefits in terms of athletic recovery, and the general rejuvenation of your body after strenuous activity. So many of our guests here at True Motion have figured out how this type of massage helps them to feel better days after a tough match or game or session.
At True Motion, we provide great personalized deep tissue massage services to athletes and everyone else. We see a lot of both amateur and professional athletes using deep tissue massage to recover after particularly hard days.
Essentially, deep tissue massage can eliminate much of the muscle stiffness and soreness that happens after a workout or hard physical activity. By limbering up the tissues and muscles, deep tissue massage restores the body’s natural balance in terms of having body tissues at rest, instead of tensed up and contracted.
As you perform as an athlete, your muscles are doing hard work – they’re tensing up and in some ways, ‘hardening’ over time. Deep tissue massage reverses the changes in your muscles that led to the “morning-after” symptoms, the soreness, the stiff and awkward feeling that tends to stick around when you’ve worked yourself hard.
Helping with Headaches and More
Then, deep tissue massage can also help deal with secondary conditions and effects of athletic activity. During strenuous activity, the body can get dehydrated as well as tensed. In some people, the physical stress leads to cramping, or muscle twitches. Each of us responds differently to pressure.
Collectively, these conditions can cause headache or migraine symptoms. Deep tissue massage, again, works to de-stress the body and alleviate or diminish some of these problems.
Have you ever wondered why it’s so easy to work out or perform one day, but the next day, you can hardly move due to muscle pain?
That’s largely because of some of the problems we’ve discussed above – before your athletic activity, your body’s in a relaxed state. Afterward, it’s battling the aftereffects of all of those demands that are placed on the body.
With all that in mind, deep tissue massage can be an excellent way to counter the effects of high-pressure activity on your body.
Having a professional shop to provide these services really helps athletes to endure and compete long-term. Think of it this way – it’s not easy to give yourself a haircut. Likewise, it’s difficult to give yourself deep tissue massage. You can use home accessories to try to alleviate muscle pain, but professional deep tissue massage works. Just ask our happy clients!
