Benefits of Deep Tissue MassageMassage Hillsboro

Deep tissue massage has numerous benefits that make it appropriate for treating a wide variety of physical ailments, including:

Chronic Pain

A study conducted by The University of Maryland Medical Center showed that deep tissue massage is a more affordable and more effective means of treating chronic pain than typical medical remedies. Because deep tissue massage improves blood flow in the muscles and throughout the entire body, pain-causing inflammation is reduced. It also relieves the muscle tension that commonly occurs in conjunction with chronic pain.


Deep tissue massage is extremely effective in easing stress, thereby lowering blood person. In one study, participants who had a deep tissue massage saw their systolic blood pressure drop by an average of 10.4 mm Hg and their diastolic pressure drop by 5.3 mm Hg on average. Deep tissue massage also causes the body to produce serotonin, a natural “feel good” hormone that can lower the blood pressure.

Muscle Injuries

Deep tissue massage promotes the healing of injured muscles by facilitating the movement of toxins away from them. The stretching and relaxing of tight muscles through massage also soothes tight and twisted muscle mass, and it can even help reduce or prevent internal scarring known as adhesions. Commonly used as a means of rehabilitating muscle injuries, deep tissue massage is also effective in reducing pain. If you were injured in a auto accident in Hillsboro this type of massage can be very beneficial.
