"I had a wonderful massage from Tayler today and will definitely be back. Her studio is very inviting and peaceful. The heated massage table was divine. Sooooo relaxing. Tayler used a variety of techniques that were just what I needed. I have a lot of back, shoulder, hip and neck pain and very few massage therapists will do the deep pressure that I need but Tayler did. It was that perfect combination of intense pain relief and relaxation that I look for in a massage. Bonus: Tayler's adorable pug, Henry, will lie in his bed and make very cute relaxed pug noises during your massage. Henry has the perfect chill vibe for a massage studio dog and he was just the cherry on top of a wonderful experience. (Although Tayler tells me she can move Henry to the bedroom if his cute snoring disturbs you.) I left feeling relaxed and happy. The massage from Tayler really just made my day!"

"Had a great experience. Alex has a perfect level of pressure, at least for me it was, but he is very easy to work with and very open to adjusting hit technique to your body issues. I also really liked the fact that his massage seemed to have a very nice continuous flow as he worked through the massage, very relaxing but also really relaxed my muscles, really noticed it the next day as well. Thanks Alex."

"When I first received a massage from Elisa, I already had a promising feeling I would be a devoted client as she is a devoted therapist. Elisa has always been intuitive, responsive and continues to make every massage experience a life changing one. I get up from every session feeling cleansed, rejuvenated and lighter than I had come. In other words, the amount of release I wanted was matched, and then some. Elisa is not only my top choice therapist, but has also become a dear friend, and I recoomend everyone experience a session with her. It's a real treat! And surly the best thing you can do for your body mind and soul."

"I went to Sarah needing help with my right hip with arthritis. My hope was (and is) to hold off surgery as long as possible and improve my range of motion. Sarah has been doing Thai Massage and started me on a specific yoga regime to open up the hip. Even if I do eventually need the surgery, Sarah has shown me what I need to do to maintain my mobility. Sarah is knowledgeable, professional and a joy to work with. "

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a deep tissue full body massage?

A deep tissue full body massage is a form of healing bodywork. At your first massage, your massage therapist will do a brief intake. They will ask you questions about the type of pressure you’d like to receive during your deep tissue massage, any previous massage experience you’ve had, and any injuries or sensitivities you have. You can remain clothed, or the massage therapist will provide draping so that even if you’re not wearing clothes you are always fully covered. Deep tissue massage may be a good option for people with chronic pain or muscle tension. The systematic deep tissue strokes will work to break down any scar tissue or stiff tissues and create ease in your body again. Massage therapists use their hands, forearms, fists and knuckles to knead and stroke your muscles and loosen adhesions. Although deep tissue massage work is intense, it should not be painful, so communicate clearly with your massage therapist so they know if you’re having any discomfort. The national average cost of a deep tissue massage is between $70 and $90.

Do deep tissue massages work?

Deep tissue massage not only feels fabulous, it can provide results. The massage technique targets deeper layers of muscle and your connective tissue. For its ability to stimulate those deeper muscles, deep tissue massage is commonly used during recuperation from sports-related and other injuries, according to the Mayo Clinic. Deep tissue massage has been proved to reduce high blood pressure and a range of other ailments. Deep tissue and other types of massage are frequently used for relieving stress, managing pain, breaking down scar tissue, relieving muscle tension and improving health. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health cites the following as health conditions for which that deep tissue massage can provide relief:

  • Chronic low back pain, chronic neck pain, and osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Labor pains
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fibromyalgia pain and fatigue
  • Headaches
  • HIV/AIDS

The proper deep tissue massage may also benefit preterm infant health. Cancer patients may experience reduced pain, increased relaxation, and improved mood.

What is the purpose of a deep tissue massage?

There are many reasons to get a deep tissue massage. A deep tissue massage can release adhesions — also known as knots — that are causing painful tension in your muscles. Deep tissue massage can promote healing and ease discomfort related to illnesses such as cancer, chronic headaches, osteoarthritis of the knee, chronic neck or back pain, depression, and more, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. If you have an old sports injury such as shin splints, or a bad back from an old car accident, deep tissue massage can promote healing in your traumatized and scarred soft tissues and get you on the road to recovery. The strokes and techniques used in deep tissue massage work to lengthen soft tissue structures that have stiffened and hardened into knotty adhesions that allow minimal movement. Deep tissue massage can loosen these adhesions so that long-standing scar tissue releases and you can gain more mobility and more freedom from stiffness and pain. And it just feels good. The national average cost of a deep tissue massage is between $70 and $90.

What is the difference between a deep tissue massage and a Swedish massage?

Deep tissue massage and Swedish massage are both forms of therapeutic bodywork. In both modalities, a licensed massage therapist uses strokes administered with their hands or forearms to loosen and relax your muscles and other soft tissue. These releases can promote relaxation, pain relief and wellness.

Deep tissue massage may be an excellent therapeutic choice for people with chronic pain or severe tension in their muscles. The deep tissue massage technique moves below the top layer of muscle and soft tissue to release adhesions in your core muscles. In comparison, the strokes used in Swedish massage focus on loosening and relaxing the top layer of your soft tissues. Swedish massage produces relaxation and well-being, but if you have a long-term injury or back pain that won’t seem to go away, deep tissue massage may be a better option for you. The systematic deep tissue strokes will work to break down any scar tissue or stiff tissues and create ease in your body again.
