What is Deep Tissue Massage?

(Also known as deep tissue therapy or orthopaedic massage)

Deep tissue therapy is a type of massage that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Using slower strokes and deeper pressure the therapist will concentrate on areas of tension and pain, and on the areas believed to be contributing to the imbalance, particularly when postural distortion is present. This type of work is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back and hip tightness, and tight shoulders resulting in loss of range of motion and numbness and/or tingling in the hands.

Chronically tightened muscles usually have adhesions, bands of painful, rigid tissue, that can restrict circulation so that the muscles do not get all of the oxygen and nutrients that the circulation brings. This can cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to restore normal range of movement and relieve pain. At certain points during the massage there can be some discomfort and pain. It is very important that you communicate with the therapist so that they can monitor your comfort during the session.

I had pain in my shoulders and neck, and it was getting to the point where I couldn't even lift my arm. I had been seeing doctors and physical therapists, but it just wasn't helping. Sandy's focused deep tissue massage therapy got me back in action 100%. I thought I was going to have to live with the pain for the rest of my life until I met Sandy.
