Often referred to as a ‘stress relief’ massage, deep tissue massage uses firm, slow strokes and trigger point release in order to dig deeper and rid the body of deep-seated tension, knots and trigger points.
It is often considered to be an uncomfortable experience, but once the relieving effects of our deep tissue massages are experienced this common misconception will quickly be debunked. While a level of discomfort and some pain may be experienced, the application of the massage can be altered to accommodate for your individual thresholds.
Benefits of deep tissue massage
Using a more area-specific approach, deep tissue massage is used to decrease tightness, stiffness and other stress-related symptoms by working intensely on the affected area and allowing it to heal itself faster than just by stretching and rest.
Who can benefit from a deep tissue massage
- Anyone suffering from stress-related stiffness and tension.
- Corporate workers who remain seated for hours on end.
- Individuals who have physically demanding activities of daily living.

While a longer (90min) session is beneficial on a monthly basis, we have seen even better results from shorter (30-60min) weekly sessions from numerous clients who swear by the effectiveness of this modality. While this regularity is appreciated by many, it is not a necessity and can be done every ‘once in a while’ with great effectiveness.
