If you are seeking a natural way to find relief from muscle tension and pain, you should consider this type of massage. Deep tissue massage therapy has proven to be highly effective in releasing chronic muscle tension, and is popular among athletes as well as those recovering from an injury. Beyond physical benefits, this type of massage yields emotional benefits, too. A good massage helps to reduce stress hormone levels and trigger the release of serotonin, resulting in a deep state of relaxation. It’s a win-win.

Frequently Asked Questions About Deep Tissue Massage Therapy:
How similar is it to a Swedish massage?
• A deep tissue massage uses greater pressure than a Swedish massage. This is because the aim is to realign the deeper layers of connective tissue.
Will I be in pain afterwards?
• Some people experience stiffness or soreness the following day. It is important to take it easy after receiving this type of massage.
What type of massage will best help with my injury?
• A deep tissue massage can help manage pain associated with a bad fall, whiplash, or a sports injury. It has also proven to be effective at relieving pain associated with osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia.

What is Deep Tissue Massage?
To some, the idea of deep tissue massage summons up imagery of something painful. But that couldn’t be farther from reality!
Deep tissue massage therapy is used to break up muscle knots. Starting with light pressure to warm up the client, we then use deep gliding pressure as well as pressure across the grain of the muscle to address specific trouble points.
While you may feel discomfort at some points during the massage, it will not be constant, and in the end it will help with chronic aches and pains including stiff neck, back pain, and other muscle tightness.
Communication with your therapist is important. Your massage is tailored to you, and if you’re experiencing discomfort at any point, that’s something we can lessen.
Is it for Me?
Is deep tissue massage therapy right for you? If it’s your first massage, you may make the choice to warm up with something more basic. However, many of our Edmonton clients benefit from this sort of focused treatment on the first visit.
- Lower back pain
- Limited mobility
- Injury recovery
- Muscle tension
- Athletic strain
- Neck pain
Deep tissue massage can help with all of these conditions, and more. In fact, surveys have shown that many people rank deep tissue massage therapy higher than prescription drugs when it comes to pain relief.
