What is Deep Tissue Massage Therapy?

As the name “deep tissue massage” implies, this massage style aims to achieve more than relaxation.

It treats not only the superficial muscle layers and connective tissues of your body but also the deeper ones requiring attention.

Some common goals of a deep remedial massage might include:

  • release of muscle knots,
  • relief of muscle tension or pain,
  • increase of mobility,
  • improvement of athletic performance,
  • postural correction.

Deep Tissue Massage at ToThePoint Massage

Because your body has a natural reflex to pain, its muscles automatically tense as soon as your brain registers a pain stimulus.

Although deep tissue massage can sometimes be painful our aim at ToThePoint Massage is to work within your tolerance levels and ensure you remain relaxed  during therapy. To do this we rely on your feedback regarding our massage pressure.

We look forward to helping you achieve your goals.
