"Paul is amazing, truly amazing. I have had hundreds of massages from many masseurs -- and Paul is easily in the top three for a lot of reasons. I'll key off the word "authentic," meaning that the massage and energy work he does is from the inner recesses of his heart. That has formed a man who is fully aware of himself and his senses -- and it equips him to be in tune with your sensory experience. The authenticity has motivated him to be extremely knowledgeable about bodies and to confidently use his own to accomplish deep and meaningful muscle work. He genuinely wants to help you feel better and accrue all of the benefits of massage. To that end, he is an authentic communicator as well. He'll send you a special link when you book an appointment with excellent resources to help you gain even more from massage. And, if you wish for conversation, you will find Paul engaging and authentic. When I laid down on his massage table, I was sore from a long drive. But his work on my neck and shoulders has reduced the pain, tenseness and restored a range of motion. Paul's knees get into the action as well -- and in a remarkable and effective way. Paul has the depth, the knowledge, the personal commitment, the mastery of various approaches/techniques, and the attentiveness to care for your needs (offering water, a shower, etc. in a genuinely warm and helpful way). I cannot recommend anyone more highly. Wow!"

"Sue has a vast amount of experience in a variety of massage and healing techniques. She has helped me with whiplash from a car accident, worked on my Achilles Tendonitis, and given me relief from my long term neck, shoulder and upper back problems. She is responsive to how hard or soft you want her touch to be, and pays attention to your specific problems. Sue is kind and funny and the massage is always a positive experience. She also has information on help for other healing issues, very informed and current in her practice. Excellent experience every time!"

"Mary gives the best massage that I've ever had. I've been to other massage therapists and no one measures up. She's also very knowledgeable. I had some lymph nodes removed from my left arm and she knew exactly which way to massage it. She definitely has heavenly hands. Once you've had a massage with Mary you won't go anywhere else."

"I contacted Steve about a deep tissue massage and he got back to me promptly, and explained what he does, he's very clear and easy to work to. I scheduled my massage but then had to move the date , he was very accommodating and worked with me. The day of the massage he was right on time, and explained everything before he started. I didn't feel rushed, he took his time to work his magic, perfect pressure and technique. It was very relaxing and therapeutic. You need to try Steve, trust me."

"I had pulled a muscle in my back and was having spasms, this was my first time with any issue like this. Someone suggested deep tissue massage so I checked it out on Thumbtack and within an hour had an appt with Doug . He did a home visit at 8 pm to help relieve the pain I was feeling. He was very thorough spending a great deal of time giving the massage and explaining what he was doing. That night and now the next day there is great improvement. Thanks Doug"

"I have had many massages over the years and was drawn to Eric because of his European training. I was looking for something different then the deep tissue I normally get- I wanted something relaxing. I chose to get the Lomi massage. I actually fell asleep on the table-- totally stress free and relaxed! "

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.

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.

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.
