The benefits of deep tissue sports massage

Deep tissue sports massage is crucial to ‘rebalancing’ and making ones’ body functional again. It was developed to help with any musculoskeletal issues, sports injuries, and strains. Over the last ten years, I have found that I use this type of massage the most with clients that visit my clinic.

Everyday life has become sedentary, people sit too much at home, on trains, planes, and at work, creating issues with their gluteus maximus (bottom) muscle. This, in turn, impacts their back and long-term manifests chronic back pain, that only I can help to rectify – not a Physiotherapist.

A deep tissue sports massage can benefit the masses to relieve chronic back pain and many other postural issues. A symptom that I am also beginning to see in many clients is the Dowager’s hump mainly created by people using their mobile phones and devices with their heads looking down. The Dowager’s hump is known as the bump that forms at the lower region of your neck and forces a forward head posture. A sports massage can really benefit this because it breaks down the fatty deposit tissue at the base of your neck helping to improve posture.
