Deep Tissue Massage Benefits for Scoliosis
Is It OK To Workout After Deep Tissue Massage?
We’ve touched on how deep tissue massage works to realign your muscle fiber and connective tissue, but we haven’t yet concluded how this type of massage impacts your workout or exercise program? So… should you even really be worried about exercising after a deep tissue massage anyway? Well, worried might not be the word – but let’s look at how you can maximize the befit of deep tissue massage to make sure you get the most out of your workout or exercise program. We’ll start with the basics & look at how massage really works.
You see, deep tissue massage helps to relieve tense muscles in a variety of ways, but let’s focus just on the stretching for a minute. Your massage therapist will work to stretch tense musculature and connective tissue throughout the body causing small tears in the musculature that not only heal quickly, but help your muscles to increase their length so you can feel more relaxed. The process that occurs internally by way of these types of deep tissue massage techniques allow muscle spindles to reset and communicate signals to your brain that tension has been relieved. These signals, along with the steady kneading action of massage (which helps remove excess fluid surrounding stressed musculature) also helps to relieve pressure within the body and on nerves allowing you to regain a full level of comfort.
How does deep tissue massage effect my workout program?
You may immediately notice improved control of your body’s movement patterns and postural alignment. When your muscles are relaxed, they are more flexible which affords you greater total range of motion. So while you may feel sore after deep tissue massage, you’ll be able to immediately feel and experience its benefits. But… before you hit the gym know this. We do not recommend lifting weights immediately post massage.
To maximize the benefits of this type of massage, it’s best to stay off the weights for a while. Resistance training would cause additional stress on your body’s muscles (remember, deep tissue massage will cause those fast healing micro tears), so we don’t want to continue to stress the muscle without an appropriate amount of recovery time. Additionally, lifting post massage would cause those muscle spindles we mentioned to go back to communicating signals of engagement to the brain which would cause muscles to revert back to their tensed state essentially undoing the treatment of your deep tissue massage.
So what are you supposed to do?
Light stretching, low impact training such as a walk or a light session on the elliptical are all fine post massage activities, just steer clear of the hard stuff to make sure you get the most out of your deep tissue massage.
Deep Tissue Massage For Back Pain May Give Relief
Let’s run through a couple quick scenarios shall we? You experience back pain when you: Get out of bed.
Put your pants on.
Pick up the kids.
Sit at your desk. All. Day. Long.
You get it. Your back goes through a lot during the course of the day.
And if simple scenarios like those above cause you discomfort, well you’re definitely overdue for a little something to provide much-needed back pain relief… It’s called deep tissue massage.
So before you let that fiery ache blazing in your back bother you for another second, head on over to Matsuno Wellness and let your lumbar loose.
Most of us live with back pain every day.
But we don’t have to, and Bruce Matsuno, of Matsuno Wellness, the owner operator, will explain why you shouldn’t. He’ll teach you that some pretty simple methods of relief will go a long way, then he’ll show you how you’ll be massaged, then you’ll feel the difference for yourself – immediately. Bruce won’t keep you in suspense.
Most often, we find the source of your back pain is caused by something simple. Poor posture, or too much leaning on the center console during your daily commute are often to blame. Sit on your wallet much? You’re not the only one… So whether it’s something simple, or a more serious source of back pain like arthritis, a pinched nerve, pulled back muscle, or a degenerative disease. Deep tissue massage may help you get to the bottom of it.
Your back pain may be relieved by deep tissue massage beginning today. Here’s how it all works.
While traditional massage helps keep your feeling great from a maintenance perspective, deep tissue massage, in particular, may provide back pain relief in a couple ways. You see, by methodically working through deep layers of tissue we knead your back pain away and bring your muscle back to health. Deep tissue massage also helps improve blood flow while releasing lesions which bind muscle fibers creating inefficiency and causing pain.
So while our deep tissue massage may help you to relieve back pain right away, considering a steady regimen of myofascial release can help you to fully restore use of musculature so you can get back to feeling your best for good.
After a visit to Matsuno Wellness in Plano, you may finally find the back pain relief you were looking for, along with improved, posture, a less restricted movement pattern, increased range of motion, lower blood pressure, better blood flow, and a more relaxed stress-free state.
Yes, it’s exactly as good as it sounds and we look forward to working with you.
