Frequently Asked Questions About Deep Tissue Massage:

1. What does a deep tissue massage do?

Deep Tissue massages are used to split up scar tissue and muscle adhesions. These powerful massages eliminate muscle “knots”: painful, stiff areas of muscle that form in response to constant muscle tension.

2. How painful is a deep tissue massage?

A deep tissue massage requires more pressure to break down the muscle adhesions; therefore, it may cause some discomfort, especially in the tense areas.

This discomfort is expected and normal, and some of our clients describe the treatment as a “good hurt.” For most people, the pain relief after the massage is well worth any short-term discomfort.

3. Do deep tissue massages release toxins?

Lactic and Uric Acid builds up around the muscles that can create pain, discomfort, soreness, and lack of reflexibility. The Deep Tissue massage will release these Acids into the body, that will later be excreted.

4. Is deep tissue massage worth it?

There are many benefits of getting a Deep Tissue massage. This massage technique loosens tense muscles and encourages the release of toxins, which offers both physical and psychological benefits.

5. How often should you get a deep tissue massage?

We recommend getting a deep tissue massage (or any other massage) at least once a month.
