You wake up and immediately know it’s going to be another “bad” day. Pain radiates from your spine and you curl up in a ball hoping it will go away. It doesn’t. So you get up and do some deep breathing and slow stretching. And medicate.
As you limp around, you begin to feel like the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz. If only the Wizard suggested the Tin Man got a Vancouver deep tissue massage, maybe he would have felt better years before he met Dorothy and her oil can.
You see, deep tissue massage may sound painful for people with chronic pain conditions, but it is actually a special technique that can relieve persistent, ongoing pain and limited range of motion for people with medical conditions like:
- Chronic pain
- Edema or swelling
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Chronic tension
- Neck and back pain
Deep tissue massage works with connective tissue in our bodies and can decrease knots while it increases motion in joints. At Oceana Massage, it is an area of speciality and we find it is very helpful to release muscle tension and knots. And best of all it can help reduce those lingering aches and pains as you try to get on with your day.
Even if you have years of chronic pain issues or even scar tissues from old injuries, it is not too late to try deep tissue massage or a combination of treatments to suit your needs. The body wants to heal and when muscles are stressed, they can block oxygen and nutrients from healing you. This builds up toxins in muscle tissues. And this causes ongoing pain and of course, ongoing stress.
Call Oceana Massage for a Deep Tissue treatment to break up those built-up toxins and let the healing blood and oxygen in. And remember to drink lots of water after your session. Talk to us about your medical issues to find out if deep tissue is recommended and we will create a custom session to suit your medical needs. You can start enjoying good days again when your body is not under constant stress and pain.
