Deep Tissue- Therapeutic Massage, Katy, Texas
OneLife Chiropractic specializes in the deep tissue, or therapeutic massage. Utilizing special techniques our experts work to release tightness in soft tissue, and deeper tissue to reach the underlying structures of the muscle and fascia (connective tissue) to relieve adhesions (knots) in the muscles.
When performed correctly, it shouldn’t hurt, but you can expect some discomfort. It is like the old adage, “Pain is weakness leaving the body,” this could be said of a therapeutic massage session. As our experts work out the issues in the tissues and muscles there is likely going to be a level of discomfort, but in the end it is well worth it. Many of our clients walk away from a session expressing that they feel like a new man or woman. This is because the therapy helps release chronic muscle tension.
It is important to drink a lot of water after having a deep-tissue, therapeutic massage to help flush out lactic acid (the chemical in the muscle that causes cramps) out of the muscles. You may experience mild soreness after a massage, but this is evidence of the necessary work being done to ultimately bring relief and loosen the muscles which may be causing deviations to the connecting bone.
Often times, muscles are the chief culprit of bones being out of alignment! A prescribed amount of therapeutic massage sessions will help your chiropractor see the desired results. Here are just a few of the benefits of therapeutic or deep-tissue massage.
- Muscle relaxation;
- Improved circulation;
- Improved immune system;
- Lower blood pressure, and;
- Reduced stress
