Relieves Muscle Tension

You’ve been doing so good sticking to your New Year’s resolutions, eating better, and exercising regularly. Give your body a well-earned treat. A deep tissue massage helps recharge muscles and relieve tension. High impact exercise like running puts additional stress on tendons and fascia thatonly a deep tissue massage can reach.

Reduces Stress

A 40-60 minute deep tissue massage has actually been proven to lower blood pressure and stress hormones. When the body is relaxed, it releases oxytocin and serotonin, hormones known to improve mood and help you sleep better.

Relieves Chronic Pain

Pain from injuries, poor posture, or osteoarthritis can be reduced with regular therapeutic massages. Recent studies suggest that a deep tissue massage from a trained professional is more effective than some prescription and over-the-counter medications.

Here’s What to Expect

During the massage, your therapist may use hands, fingers, knuckles, elbows, and forearms. The therapist may instruct you on proper breathing throughout the massage; these techniques will help you relax and enjoy the experience.

  1. Thanks for this post on the benefits of deep tissue massage. I feel like I am in need of a deep tissue massage. I have had really bad muscle tension on my lower back. It is good to know that it can help with that, as well as with stress. I feel super stressed lately, so I should probably go get a massage soon. Thanks for the help!

  2. I’ve been begging my husband to stay home and watch the kids so that I could take a spa day. A massage just sounds SO good right about now. I had no idea that massages could help people dealing with chronic pain. That’s so cool.

    1. Right! We are open until 9pm Monday-Thursday making our last 60min massage at 7:45pm. We’d love the opportunity to pamper you. Mommy’s always need some extra pampering!!
