Deep Tissue Massage in Downtown Toronto

We offer direct insurance billing.

A deep tissue massage is a therapeutic massage that targets knots in the muscles and other specific problem areas in the deeper layer of the muscle and connective tissue – the muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer the surrounds the muscles, bones and joints). This massage is done very specifically and methodically. The massage is done with slow strokes and intense friction across the surface of the muscle. This type of massage is typically used for treating chronic tight or painful muscles, postural problems, repetitive strain and other injuries.

A deep tissue massage is usually more intense than your typical massage, but it should not typically cause pain. Common areas the deep tissue massage is used on are stiff and painful trouble spots like the shoulder and neck. The primary purpose of a deep tissue massage is to release the fibers of the muscle while reversing the pattern of tension and dysfunction the muscle likely has – it can assist in removing metabolic waste from these muscles.

How often can you go for a deep tissue massage?

Sometime, after a deep tissue massage, your massage therapist will recommend doing follow up visits to further address the problem areas. How often you go depends on your condition. However, in general, receiving a couple of deep tissue massages over the duration of a few weeks or a month can help your body have a more relaxed and healthier muscle function. Some patients will come in bi-weekly or monthly to maintain the benefits that come with getting a deep tissue massage.
