Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints) and areas of defined pain and tension using slow strokes to apply pressure. Injuries or chronic muscle tension can cause adhesions, more commonly referred to as knots, to form in the tendons, ligaments and muscles. These adhesions are rigid, often painful and they can block proper blood circulation, impede natural movement and cause inflammation and pain. When the muscles are deeply massaged, blood flow throughout the body is increased. The better blood flow reduces inflammation and therefore relieves pain. Deep tissue massage breaks down the adhesions to restore natural movement and reduce pain, and repeated massage sessions can break up and even eliminate the presence of scar tissue.
A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people's blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60 minute deep tissue massage. Additionally, a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that massage modalities like deep tissue reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.
The pressure associated with deep massage improves lymphatic circulation and encourages drainage, which leads to an improved range of motion and more flexibility. Due to these benefits, this type of massage is often recommended for people who have recently undergone surgery.
Before the massage begins, therapist will go the bathroom and have a quick shower.
FYI: Intimate lighting and candles provide relax atmosphere in the room.
Providing massage is not providing sexual service. Kissing, oral sex or intercourse are not included in massage. It is not possible to pay extra for these services. Suggestions and proposals of sex offend the therapist and she/he can discontinue the massage. But you can fondle (gently touch) her/him.
