Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Have you had trouble with nagging sore muscles and joints?

If you are an endurance athlete and you haven't ever had trouble with this issue - that's great. The truth is that most of us like to "push our limits" and injuries often result from these types of symptoms.

Believe it or not, I have had trouble with flareups of tendinitis in my left knee over the past 10 years. It started after I ran the Chicago Marathon in 2001. The problem recurs every so often when I overindulge in training activities.

It's not fun and I imagine others suffer from similar issues. I've recently experimented with deep tissue massage treatments as a way to address this problem and have found it very helpful.

You might look into deep tissue massage as a way to treat this type of pain. Here's a post from Michelle Bery on that will give you a little more detail about what's involved with deep tissue massage treatments.

It’s definitely a good idea that you tried deep tissue massage. This kind of massage is very advisable for athletic people like you. If you regularly undergo deep tissue massage, it will help keep you performing at a very high level, regardless of the activity you take one. It will help you deal with stress, chronic or temporary pain, and injuries.
