Drift Away in Winchester specialises in providing deep tissue massage to help ease muscles, break down tension, increase mobility and flexibility.
Deep tissue massage can be a rather intense massage but the benefits are longer lasting and it's known to be very effective in targeting pain and taking away the muscle tension and discomfort that can plague people.
Deep tissue uses techniques to work deeper into the tissue structure of the muscle and fascia, working them to stretch and break down the muscle tension. Deep tissue is especially good at targeting and focusing upon problem areas and over a period of time being used to specifically release and help to remedy problems in specific areas which are holding on to chronic tension.
Pressure is applied using the fists, knuckles, forearms and elbows using slower methods and working for longer periods on affected areas.
According to the August 2005 issue of Consumer Reports
magazine, 34,000 people ranked deep tissue massage more effective in
relieving osteoarthritis pain than physical therapy, exercise,
prescription medications, chiropractic, acupuncture, diet, glucosamine
and over-the-counter drugs.
Deep tissue massage also received a top ranking for fibromyalgia
pain. People often notice improved range of motion immediately after a
deep tissue massage.
