One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing.
Deep tissue massage works best when you need to pay attention to painful or stiff areas of your body. Massage therapists apply slow, deliberate pressure to layers beneath the skin's surface, such as muscles, tendons, and other tissues. Deep tissue massage, although less rhythmic, may prove to be therapeutic. It may relieve chronic patterns or tension, as well as help with muscle injuries, like back sprain.
You can either do lymphatic draining massage at your home, or hire someone to help you. Always consult your doctor before trying this.
