"I began going to Connections ten years ago. After trying other massage therapists off and on, I realized that none of them even come close to providing the type of extensive, knowledgeable service as Lois and Gordon ... I have always been able to walk out of Connections feeling better than when I went in."

Des Moines Iowa Therapy Massage

Deep tissue massage puts pressure deep into the muscle releasing chronic muscle tension. It is focused on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia. It is effective in treating chronic pain, muscle adhesions, whiplash, sciatica and much more. The movement in deep tissue massage is slower and the pressure is deeper and is in a more concentrated area where there is tension and pain. Adhesions are bands of painful, rigid tissue that stick together creating a knot. Deep tissue massage breaks down these adhesions to relieve the tension and pain. This type of massage is different than a classic massage as it usually focuses on a specific problem.

Des Moines Iowa Residents: How Do You Know You Need Massage?

Among the specific problems that deep tissue massage is used for are:

  • Chronic pain
  • Limited mobility
  • Recovery from injury
  • Repetitive strain injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Osteoarthritis pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle spasm
  • Plantar fasciitis

If you have had an injury, deep tissue massage can break up or even eliminate scar tissue. A stressed muscle can block nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they need to go. Toxins will build up in your muscle tissue when this happens. These toxins contribute to muscle pain. Deep tissue massage breaks up and releases the built-up toxins. After the release of these toxins, blood and oxygen can start to circulate. Deep tissue massage has slowly been adopted by sports medicine therapists as a way to deal with soft tissue injuries and chronic pain. If find that you have chronic pain and muscle tension, deep tissue massage is for you.
