Deep Tissue Massage Treatment



One of our most common used massage techniques is deep tissue to ensure each muscle in the body gets the attention it needs.

All of our Licensed Massage Therapists are trained and experienced in injury rehabilitation.

What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage, as defined by a 2018 article in the Journal of Bodywork And Movement Therapies, involves manipulation of the deep layers of muscle tissue in the body, including the fascia and other supportive tissue that make up joints. The purpose is to reach these layers in order to relax, lengthen and release harmful holding patterns.

Compared to other popular types of massage techniques — including Swedish massage or acupressure, which tend to be lighter in pressure and can involve moving the body into certain positions — deep tissue massage is usually performed more slowly and firmly.

Many people consider “sports massages” to be a form of deep tissue massage. These involve physical treatment primarily to neuromusculoskeletal systems to treat pain and disability, improve muscle recovery and joint mobilization, and prevent injuries.
