Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage that uses firm pressure and slow strokes. It reaches deeper layers of muscle and fascia and is often used to help with chronic aches and pain.  Deep tissue massage is used to break up scar tissue and break down muscle adhesions (what we like to call knots) Knots can affect our daily lives by limiting our range of motion, increase inflammation, and decrease circulation. Often times deep tissue massage is used on a specific problem, such as ongoing muscle pain, or injury.

You Can Benefit from Massage if you:

Have chronic pain in you neck, shoulders, or back.

Feel overwhelmed or experience high stress.

Experience trouble sleeping due to pain, discomfort, or stress.

Your mobility is limited due to knots in your muscles.

What We Do

What to Expect

Massage therapist use multiple techniques in deep tissue massage including using their fingers, knuckles and forearms. This allows the massage therapist to release the muscle that is tight and address scar tissue issues.


Will it Hurt

At certain points during the massage, you may feel some discomfort or even some pain as the massage therapist works on areas where there are adhesions or scar tissue. You may experience some pain or soreness after your massage. It should only last a day or so.


After Care

Drinking lots of water and eating a balanced diet the days following your massage and assist in better muscle recovery and overall health.

After the massage, you may feel some stiffness or soreness, but it should subside within a day or so. Be sure to contact your massage therapist if you have concerns or if you feel pain after having a massage.

Drinking water after the massage may help to flush the metabolic waste from the tissues.
