Many people assume that Deep Tissue massage must be painful to be good, but while Deep Tissue may be more intense, you should not feel pain or soreness. If a skilled therapist, does it, it can be done slowly and allowing the body to adapt to the pressure. Also, Deep Tissue Massage uses more force than a Swedish massage. It is a good option if you have chronic muscle problems, such as soreness, injury, or imbalance. It can help relieve tight muscles, chronic muscle pain, and anxiety.

Nevertheless, it is an excellent manipulation for muscles after a significant physical performance.

“Recent evidence suggests that active trigger points (TrPs) in neck and shoulder muscles contribute to tension-type headache. Active TrPs within the suboccipital, upper trapezius, sternocleidomastoid, temporalis, superior oblique and lateral rectus muscles have been associated with chronic and episodic tension-type headache forms. It seems that the pain profile of this headache may be provoked by referred pain from active TrPs in the posterior cervical, head and shoulder muscles. In fact, the presence of active TrPs has been related to a higher degree of sensitization in tension-type headache. Different therapeutic approaches are proposed for proper TrP management. Preliminary evidence indicates that inactivation of TrPs may be effective for the management of tension-type headache, particularly in a subgroup of patients who may respond positively to this approach. Different treatment approaches targeted to TrP inactivation are discussed in the current paper, focusing on tension-type headache.” (Alonso-Blanco, De La Llave- Rincon, Fernandez de las Penas, 2012) (Muscle trigger point therapy in tension-type headache.
