It takes strong fingers, hands and forearms to be able to deliver a deep tissue massage. This is why most people go to a professional for this type of massage. This, however, can be inconvenient by trying to arrange the time for this. It can also be expensive. The solution to this is owning a massage gun. An individual can use this on themselves for most of the areas they need to reach. Then for those areas they cannot reach they can ask someone to do this for them. Most people do not mind giving a massage with a massage gun because it does not require them to have the strength that is needed to deliver a manual deep tissue massage.
A Proper Deep Tissue Massage
Often referred to as a percussion massage, this massage is as the name implies. It can penetrate to the deeper tissues within the area being treated. It affects the muscles and connective tissue. All of which can be adversely affected just by an individual’s daily routine, or if they are involved in sports or other forms of activity. They can also be affected as a result of a strain or sprain.
With the several layers of tissues that are within the body, it is difficult to affect these with a massage manually. The massage gun delivers rapid bursts of pressure which is what is needed in a percussion massage. This pressure is consistent and can be achieved must faster than when done manually. It allows for deeper penetration, and the quick action brings a faster response, which helps the area being treated to benefit more quickly from the increased blood flow.
The increased blood flow to this deeper tissue can help the tissue repair itself. The affected area is getting more oxygen and can absorb the nutrition that the blood is delivering. The other added benefit is that the muscles in this area can relax. As they do much of the tension and stiffness that is being experienced is significantly reduced.
The Primary Purpose of Deep Tissue Massage
There are different types of massages that serve different purposes. The deep tissue massage is designed to assist with the healing of deep tissue. This is the tissue that may have been traumatized in some way. This is often as a result of sports injuries or aggressive exercising. Other massages are designed more for relaxation and stress reduction. The significant benefit of the massage gun is that it can deliver the benefits of both these types of massages. As the results of the deep tissue massage being carried out, relaxation often comes with it as well as stress reduction. With the massage gun, it's like having two massages in one.
