Deep Tissue Massage at RiversZen

Massage RiversZen Astoria Oregon

Deep tissue massage offers stress relief

When a client feels stressed out due to demands at work, home or both, deep tissue massage can help ease this stress in a healthy manner. This is important, as unresolved stress can do major damage to mental and physical health; an estimated 60 to 80 percent of doctor’s office visits are stress-related, as noted in a 2003 study in the Journal of the National Medical Association.

Deep tissue massage eases pain

Deep tissue massage may be able to lessen pain. For example, research published in an April 2014 issue of Manual Therapy found that deep tissue massage to posterior calf muscles, along with self-stretching exercises, helped reduce participants’ pain associated with plantar fasciitis. Deep tissue massage can be used for other conditions as well, such as fibromyalgia, tennis elbow or low-back pain, potentially providing some much-needed relief.

Deep tissue massage makes movement easier

Scar tissue forms when an area of the body is injured and heals. Although the most common scars are those that result from a visible cut, sometimes they occur deeper in the body, such as when you damage muscles, ligaments or tendons. It is this type of scarring that deep tissue massage can help resolve, making it easier to move and promoting greater range of motion..

Deep tissue massage can lower heart rate and blood pressure

A study published in 2008 in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine involved 263 participants who reported muscle spasm or strain. Each individual’s blood pressure and heart rate was assessed prior to a 45 to 60-minute deep tissue massage, as well as after. The result was lower systolic and diastolic pressure, as well as heart rates around 10 beats less per minute

To me the body is a giant beautiful intricate puzzle. Each muscle is a unique piece that affects the other pieces, if one doesn't fit it causes the other pieces not to fit, to look and feel out of place. My job is to be patient to find each perfect stop to create a beautiful balanced picture.

My goal is to provide a positive healing touch. In an uncertain, chaotic world, we can all use some relief. I'm very passionate and look forward to working with all my clients to build a more balanced and positive future for myself and my clients.
