Get relief from tight, achy muscles and chronic pain with deep tissue massage at MindBody Med in Seattle, WA. With this therapeutic technique, trade those knots in your muscles for sighs of relief.
What Is Deep Tissue Massage?
This professional 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 to help your body release tightness and tension.
Relieve Pain & Gain Mobility
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. This therapeutic technique can alleviate many common problems.
7 Benefits Of Deep Tissue Massage
Because deep tissue massage works on a deeper level, it has the potential to promote better health overall. Studies have shown that massage can encourage better circulation and oxytocin production — a hormone linked with positive emotions. This increase in oxytocin levels can slow your heart rate, which in turn relieves stress and anxiety.

Therapeutic Vs. Relaxing Massage
Deep tissue massage is 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 wrong or painful during your appointment, you should let your therapist know immediately.
You may feel a bit stiff or sore for a day or two afterward. 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, contact us right away.
