Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage

While any of our professional massages are therapeutic, with real health benefits, some massages focus more on relaxation.

Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem. This is often synonymous with Deep Tissue massage. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage. But this is not always the case. Deep tissue massage is great at breaking down scar tissue and getting your blood circulating, but it may not be what you need on a particular day. Your therapist will apply the specific techniques and the right amount of pressure to address your needs, and sometimes that’s a lighter touch.

(This is very similar to the Injury/Rehab/Sports massage that our Specialized Massage Therapists practice.)
