Deep tissue massage benefits

Deep tissue massage helps the body by releasing restricted or injured tissues, says Montia. By applying appropriate pressure, deep tissue massage “expedites recovery to provide pain relief,” she says. 

According to research, the benefits of deep tissue massage include: 

  • Increased range of motion
  • Lower blood pressure and heart rate
  • Reduced pain perception
  • Relief of inflammation associated with plantar fasciitis
  • Relief of chronic and low back pain
  • Reduced pain associated with Ankylosing Spondylitis
