Massage is one of the most commonly used forms of complementary medicine in the United States. In fact, in 2007 alone, an estimated 18 million adults in the United States used massage services, according to the National Health Interview Survey. One popular form of massage is deep tissue massage which Structura’s signature massage is based on. Deep tissue massage focuses more directly on deeper layers of your muscles, as well as the connective tissue around the muscles (fascia). This targets muscle adhesions, more commonly known as knots, releasing them by breaking them up. This allows deep tissue massage to provide several benefits to the body. It provides relief from stiffness, numbness, pain, constipation, and other health problems. One of the purposes of massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Other possible benefits include stimulation of circulation, an increase in muscle tone, and a balance of the musculoskeletal systems. Massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of metabolic waste. It increases circulation without increasing heart load.
