Deep Tissue Massage

    Deep Tissue" is a term that is used quite a bit and is the most incorrectly executed massage modality. Many massage therapists erroneously believe that they must use only extreme pain & pressure to try and reach & release deep tissues and its resulting pain pattern.

    What is Deep Tissue Massage?

    Deep Tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. The purpose is to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slower strokes and deeper hand or finger pressure on the contracted or restricted areas of muscle, tendon and fascia.


    Our Deep Tissue Therapies are used to locate and release spasms and hyper contraction in the tissue, eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain, restore postural alignment, proper biomechanics and flexibility to the tissues, rebuild the strength of injured tissues, and assist venous and lymphatic flow.
    Our Deep Tissue Therapies provide a more effective therapeutic response by focusing on movement and technique to reshape and realign the muscles, connective tissue and releasing old, habitual patterns.

    We strive to help clients achieve positive results, and carefully tailor each session to meet individual client's needs.

    What is the purpose of Deep Tissue Massage?

    The purpose of Deep Tissue massage is to release the fibers of a muscle while reversing deeply-held patters of tension and dysfunction. In addition Deep Tissue massage assists the removal of metabolic waste from the muscles and relaxes and soothes the muscles. It is both corrective and therapeutic.

    Will Deep Tissue Massage hurt?

    Deep Tissue massage is relaxing, but due to the very specific nature of the massage clients may experience some soreness during or after the massage. The massage therapists at BodyWorks Massage Group can tailor this massage to your individual needs. Each massage therapist has had advanced training in Deep Tissue techniques and will ask you during the massage where you have areas of tension or pain and how you feel about the pressure used during your massage. If at any time you wish to have the therapist use less pressure you should let her know. Do not hesitate to tell your therapist if you wish to have her use less pressure.

    Will I be able to relax during Deep Tissue massage?

    Many people want to relax during their massage, but also to have specific areas of tension released. BodyWorks Massage Group calls this type of massage our "Basic Deep Tissue Massage." In this treatment we blend components of simple relaxation massage with some of the more specific massage to address trouble areas. You determine how much Deep Tissue treatment is right for you.

    How often should I get Deep Tissue massage?

    Sometimes after your Deep Tissue massage, your massage therapist will recommend follow up visits to further address the problem areas. Receiving a few Deep Tissue massage treatments in a period of a few weeks or a month will help your body to establish a new pattern of healthy and relaxed muscle function, rather than the previous pattern of tension and dysfunction. Many people choose to see a massage therapist bi-weekly or monthly to maintain the benefits of Deep Tissue massage and to help avoid future pain or risk of injury.
