Pain Relieving Deep Tissue Massage in Los Angeles

When you hear people talk about feeling sore but extremely relaxed after a massage, it is safe to assume they just received Deep Tissue Physical Therapy. This modality uses slow firm pressure to target the inner layer of muscle and connective tissue. Firm consistent pressure is usually applied to major muscle groups such as the neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back, and legs to release areas of built-up tension.

The firm, slow stroking, allows your therapist to stretch stiff contracted areas of muscle and help work out any adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) that may be causing chronic tension. This deep pressure has the added psychological benefit of encouraging the body to release serotonin and oxytocin, known as the “Happy Hormones,” leaving you quite relaxed after your session.

What to Expect After Your Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

After the session, you may feel some soreness in the massaged areas of your body. This is entirely normal. This technique is like giving your muscles a relaxation workout to speed up recovery and pain relief. As a clarification, your body should feel sore, not in pain. If pain develops, please let your massage therapist know, and if the pain persists, contact your healthcare provider.

Just like a workout, you should drink plenty of water after your appointment to flush out the built-up lactic acid in your muscles, this will help reduce the amount of soreness and help with overall muscle recovery.
