Deep Full Body Massage is a unique approach to bodywork distinct from clinical deep tissue massage. Here ‘deep’ refers to the depth of the client’s positive experience, not just the amount of pressure used. The Deep Full Body Massage therapists at Massage Therapy Center The Lotus Spa have an educated appreciation for the role of the connective tissue system in shaping the body, and they utilize advanced techniques to systematically release the upper and lower body as well as the core.
This type of Swedish massage is used to soften and elongate muscles, soothe nerves, and release tension. It is designed also to improve posture and facilitate freedom of movement. Deep Full Body Massage is effective for muscular and fascial strains and sprains, structural balance, realigning structure and energy, relieving emotional stress, and evoking inner peace.
You use your body in repetitive ways, such as sitting at a computer for long periods of time, driving a lot, or just through everyday activities. These activities can cause tight, sore muscles or even injury. Muscles under strain, such as stress or exercise, can become “sticky”, causing pain and limiting their ability to perform optimally. Massage is one of the only techniques which will restore them to their proper performance. Regular massages will enhance and increase the effectiveness of your workout.
There are several ways in which massage will improve the function of muscles and will enhance your workout.Massage does help remove waste products such as lactic acid and encourage the muscles to take up oxygen and nutrients which help them recover quicker. It will also increase blood flow to tissues, allowing for faster healing and improved performance.
Stretching – Massage can stretch tissues that could not be stretched in the usual methods. Bundles of muscle fibers are stretched lengthwise as well as sideways. Massage can also lengthen the sheath or fascia that surrounds the muscle, thereby releasing any tension or pressure build up and allowing the muscle to return to it’s optimal length, relieving pain and enhancing performance.
There are tremendous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments from a Registered Massage Therapist. Whether your need is to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being.

The importance of relaxation and well-being can’t be underestimated and one of the most noted effects of massage is a greater feeling of calm and relaxation. It reduces both emotional and physical stress, which is why it is often recommended in stress and anxiety treatment programs. The soothing, pampering benefits of massage encourage the release of endorphins – the wonderful chemicals that give us the feel-good factor. Conversely, those nasty stress inducing hormones such as norepinephrine, adrenaline and cortisol are reduced.
