DEEP TISSUE BY A SPORTS THERAPIST
Deep Tissue and Sports Massage reach deeper layers of bone fascia and muscle fascia knots. There are different modalities that need to be used to deal with these 3 layers of fascia that line, bring moisture and youth to Skin Muscle and Bone. Deeper modalities are used to break down knots or fascial adhesions in the different layers and relieve tension in these shortened muscle fibers throughout the body where the body tries to protect an area by pulling the fascia into a knot and collecting material to surround and build a barrier. The issue comes when this dried out fascia causes the deteriorating muscle to tear, causes skin to thin out and bone to weaken. (Causing many other problems) This type of Structural Sports massage is beneficial for athletes, injured bodies, tortured overworked bodies and those who sit for long periods of time where hips get locked up and blocked, those who have rotator cuff and other over-use injuries and blocked areas... Injury related Custom therapies are instinctively recommended as range of motion, posture and palpated tissues can discover the fascia-adhesions or knots that block joints from getting proper flow. Good deep regular hot yoga and or massage WILL help prevent surgery in many instance... deeper sports specific work will speed faster recovery, provide pain relief, proper structural integration and function. Therapies can include Heat and Ice, fascia blasting, grasten... Rolfing if necessary For stubborn fascia. Longer sessions may be necessary in some cases, especially if you haven’t addressed the issues properly. All modalities used are custom to your bodies’ needs. Bone layer fascia adhesion may show as a deep indent or cellulite and show underlying structure problems to be corrected for a smoother less painful healthy supple limb. These deep indents can be a warning that there are blockages in the hips and joints which lead to deterioration of joints. This therapy is more of a necessity and not as much of a fun treat as other types of massage, but can be combined in a more artistic transitionally beneficial way, to include Lomilomi and others. Although it can at first be uncomfortable to a patient to work the hip muscles and deep into the glutes to remove blocked fascia, tact and complete professionalism are always present.
