Therapeutic / Deep Tissue Massage

The intent of a Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage is to decrease the negative effects of stress to the body by calming, soothing, and sedating the central nervous system and to decrease your chances of muscular related injuries by relaxing tight muscles. This is achieved by eliciting the relaxation response in your body with a particular type of massage movement called effleurage (a long gliding movement) and petrissage (a kneading movement), frictioning and compressions.

These types of massage movements not only help to stimulate the relaxation response but also help to increase blood and lymph circulation. This in turn quickens the removal of toxins and wastes, surges oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and helps strengthen the immune system.

A Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage is also geared toward softening the structure of tight muscles as well as breaking up adhesions formed in muscles commonly referred to as “muscle knots”. It also helps in reducing chronic pain which can also be very beneficial for people suffering from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Therapeutic/Deep Massage is also beneficial in the prevention, as well as treatment of Sciatica, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other repetitive stress syndromes that occur from continuously using muscles, day in and day out, for hours at a time i.e. typing on a computer, slinging a heavy bag over your shoulder, going up and down stairs all day long, and standing sitting or driving for long periods of time. In addition to all of these benefits, a Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage not only leaves you feeling calm and relaxed, but energized as well.


Last but not least, Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage was once considered a luxury. But in today’s society with stress levels at an all time high, and physical demands on our bodies at home and in the work force are greater than ever. Massage is now considered a necessity to help reverse and control the damages these occurrences do to our body. At Massage Experts, we are true advocators in the belief of massage therapy as preventative health care.
