Alleviate Tension with Our Deep Tissue Massage
Feeling tense, tired, or sore? Get the relief your body needs with Jenna Baker LMT’s deep tissue massage in Salt Lake City. We massage the deeper layers of the muscle tissue to help relieve severe tension in the connective tissue and muscles.
People in the Far East, along with ancient Egyptians and Greeks, were among the first to use the deep tissue massage and discover its benefits. Fast forward to the 20th century, when a doctor named Therese Phimmer opened the first in-depth tissue massage clinic in 1949.
She also wrote “Muscles – Your Invisible Bonds,” a book that discusses the massage technique in detail and enumerates the formal guidelines in practicing the massage technique. Since then, many practitioners, from massage therapists to physiotherapists, have adopted this type of massage.
How This Massage Helps Your Body
Individuals getting a deep tissue massage are sure to enjoy the following health benefits:
- Relieves Chronic Pain – Deep tissue massage reduces chronic pain by minimizing inflammation and increasing the blood flow through the body.
- Rehabilitates Injured Muscles – Individuals with muscle injury benefit from deep tissue massage therapy as it stretches twisted or tight muscle knots and aids in the movement of toxins from the muscles.
- Breaks up Scar Tissue – Regular deep tissue massage breaks down scar tissue, which improves lymphatic drainage and circulation. This improvement translates to better range of motion and flexibility.
Preparing for a Deep Tissue Massage
If you will be receiving this therapeutic massage for the first time, it’s important to drink plenty of water. Staying well hydrated alleviates the soreness associated with post-massage discomfort. Additionally, consider stretching before the massage, so that you get the most out of your treatment (stretching promotes flexibility and blood flow).
