Reduces Chronic Pain

    The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that deep-tissue massage is more effective and affordable for relieving chronic pain than
    conventional medical remedies. Because deep-tissue massage increases the flow of blood through the body, it helps reduce the inflammation that
    causes pain. Deep-tissue massage can also help alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening the tight tissue clusters.

    Improves Blood Pressure

    Deep-tissue massage helps ease stress and tension, which can have a beneficial effect on blood pressure. People who had a deep-tissue massage saw
    their systolic pressure drop by an average of 10.4 mm Hg and their diastolic pressure drop an average 5.3 mm Hg, according to a study cited by the
    University of Maryland Medical Center. Deep-tissue massage can help increase the body's production of serotonin, the hormone that promotes
    happiness and good feelings.

    Breaks up Scar Tissue

    Over time, deep-tissue massage therapy can help break up and eventually erase scar tissue in the body. It does this by improving lymphatic circulation
    and drainage to improve flexibility and range of motion in the affected area. Scar tissue is often associated with ongoing pain and stiffness, so deep-
    tissue massage can improve these symptoms. Massage therapy is often recommended for people who are recovering from surgery

    Rehabilitates Injured Muscles

    Deep-tissue massage can be an effective treatment for injured muscles. Because it facilitates the movement of toxins from the muscles and helps
    stretch tight or twisted muscle mass, deep-tissue massage can help promote healing. Because massage also helps relax muscles, it can reduce the pain
    caused by injuries, too. Deep-tissue massage is frequently used to rehabilitate sports injuries.
