Deep tissue has been found to improve muscle function and range of motion, break up scar tissue and adhesions, and decrease pain. It is thought that when muscles are tensed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue.  A deep tissue massage may help loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. Because many toxins are released, it is recommended to drink plenty of water after a deep tissue session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.

Swedish massage therapy can be helpful with a number of other physical challenges, such as reduction in scar tissue by physically manipulating the fibers of the tissue, allowing the scar tissue to be successfully reabsorbed into the skin. Additionally, it can aid with lymphatic drainage, where the long strokes of the therapist help move fluids successfully out of clogged areas.

For thousands of years, Eastern healers have used pressure-point massage to balance the body; shiatsu is the Japanese version. The idea is that chi, or life energy, flows through the body in 14 meridians. When the meridians are blocked, physical or emotional problems result.

Very disappointed. 1st time we came the two ladies, one being the owner and the 2nd natasha who Is no longer there were absolutely wonderful for our couples massage 2nd time we went I had a female who was good but my wife got Jesus. She told him light and he kept being rough and when she said pressure was too much all he would say is breath she was sore for days following the massage We decided to give them 1 more chance and ended up with Kirsten and Jesus again. We were specific about what we wanted and neither provider listened to our request my wife once again told jesus he was too hard and he would just say breath this is after she told him to be light Very disappointing and will not be going back Update: After posting this review Tucson Massage Company contacted us to apologize for the bad experiences we had. They offered us a free 90 min massage and we accepted. The massage was awesome and they assured us that they would make sure we are paired with providers who listen to us and perform quality massages. We are continuing to use their services.read more
In “bodywork,” as practiced at Haven, painful physical manipulations are just one part of a package of techniques explicitly designed to evoke and provoke emotional expression and vitality. While a participant lies on the ground breathing hard, two facilitators may be applying extremely painful pressures to key points in the body, deliberately pushing the participant well outside of his or her comfort zone. This may launch people out of emotional ruts (fairly dramatically), relieving intense emotional denial and suppression, and leading to vivid insights and profound new body awareness. BACK TO TEXT

Specialized massage tables and chairs are used to position recipients during massages. A typical commercial massage table has an easily cleaned, heavily padded surface, and a horseshoe-shaped head support that allows the client to breathe easily while lying face down and can be stationary or portable, while home versions are often lighter weight or designed to fold away easily. An orthopedic pillow or bolster can be used to correct body positioning.
Because deep tissue massage is recognized as a medical solution for issues related to chronic illness and accident-related health problems, your health insurance may cover your deep tissue massage costs. Always be sure to check with your insurance provider before starting treatment to verify that the massage therapist you want to work with is recognized by your company. You will also want your massage therapist to provide any paperwork you need to submit to your insurance provider.

The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.
