Get relief from tight, achy muscles and chronic pain, with deep tissue massage at MindBody Med in Seattle. Let’s trade those muscle knots for sighs of relief with this therapeutic technique.

What Is Deep Tissue Massage?

This professional massage technique works the deeper layers of your muscle and fascia (connective tissue) to get to the root of any stiffness, pain, or discomfort you may be experiencing. Your massage therapist will apply slow, firm pressure to problem areas in order to help your body release tightness and tension.

The Benefits

Whether you’re dealing with scar tissue, adhesions, or muscle knots, the slow pressure we use during your deep tissue massage can help bring relief. All three problems can cause stiffness, pain, and limit your range of motion. What’s hurting you, making everyday life harder, or keeping you from enjoying the activities you love right now?

  • Back Pain
  • Stiff Neck
  • Sore Shoulders
  • Arthritis Pain / Joint Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries

Whole Body Benefits

Because deep tissue massage works on a deeper level, it has the potential to promote better health overall. Studies have also shown that massage can encourage better circulation and oxytocin production — a hormone linked with positive emotions. This increase in levels of oxytocin can slow your heart rate, which in turn relieves stress and anxiety.

  • Lower Blood Pressure
  • Decrease Inflammation
  • Improve Range Of Motion
  • Increase Happy Hormones
  • Reduce Stress & Anxiety
  • Improve Posture
  • Better Sleep At Night

Your First Visit, What To Expect

Deep tissue massage is designed to be therapeutic, unlike relaxing techniques like aromatherapy or hot stone. Feeling some slight discomfort during your first session is normal as your therapist goes to work on those tight spots. If anything feels really wrong or painful during your appointment, you should let your massage therapist know immediately.

You may feel a little stiff or sore for a day or two afterward as well. The best thing you can do is stay relaxed and follow your therapist’s aftercare instructions. If your discomfort doesn’t seem to be going away on its own, contact us right away.
