"Fantastic experience with this company! Incredibly responsive, professional, and considerate of not damaging the walls or floors. I had recently redone all the floors and paint in my entire condo and there was not a single mark or scratch when they were done. Also very fast and efficient. Would 100% recommend and use them again."

"I started seeing Christina approximately 6 months ago and continue to do so on a fairly regular basis. She is great! Knowledgeable and always continuing to expand her education, incorporating new and different methods to achieve the best results for the individual and their specific areas of concern. I am a bit rough on my body to say the least, from my manual labor intensive career, to horseback riding, recreational sports and ocr racing extra curricular activities. Christina has brought much relief to my aching and injured joints and muscles through deep tissue/neuromuscular massage, cupping and Thai yoga stretches. Her services are highly recommended."

"I started visiting Amy Marks about two years ago on a whim after seeing her ad in one of the local magazines. Up to that point I had never been to a masseuse. It took several visits before I learned how to relax and allow the massage to work, but once I did - WOW! What a difference it has made in my life! My stress levels at work and at home have been greatly reduced and I sleep much better. Matter of fact, I took Ambien for several years to help me sleep and now I longer have to use that drug. My blood pressure has gone down considerably. Recurring back problems from a traffic accident 40 years ago are practically gone. I knew there would be health benefits but I never realized how many. Why did I wait over fifty years?! I'm sure every person is different, but now I find if I don't get a massage at least once a month I really start to feel it. Amy does a great job and the atmosphere in her office is inviting and relaxing. It's an all encompassing experience! Thanks Amy!"

"My experience with Penny was remarkable. I went in with shooting hand pain that lasted nearly a week and came out pain-free. She took her time and even explained where the pain was coming from and how she was able to relieve it. She was extremely knowledgeable and kind. I'll be visiting her again for future work!"

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.
