Deep Tissue Massage

Deep finger pressure and slow, measured strokes

Realign the deepest layers of your muscles with its surrounding connective tissue

Deep Tissue Massage is an often doctor-recommended therapy particularly beneficial for those with contracted areas — such as stiff necks, nagging upper back pain, leg and shoulder soreness — and sufferers of chronic pain. Using deep finger pressure and slow, measured strokes, Deep Tissue Massage achieves two primary goals: the realignment of deep layers of muscle with their surrounding connective tissue, and the breaking apart of bands of adhesions that form deep within muscles.


Performed properly, Deep Tissue Massage is an effective therapy for pain reduction and injury recovery. Many common injuries best treated by Deep Tissue Massage are those that occur from repetitive motions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. Some patients experience initial pain and discomfort during and immediately following Deep Tissue Massage procedures, but pain generally subsides within 24 hours and healing begins.

Known benefits of Active Bodywork’s Deep Tissue Massage include:

  • Increased blood flow to muscles and throughout the body
  • Reduced inflammation at injury sites
  • After some possible initial discomfort, dramatic reductions in pain
  • Lowered levels of both systolic and diastolic blood pressure
  • Increased production of the neurotransmitter serotonin, and improved mood

Just ask our athletes…


“…the kind of bodywork I need does not come with slippery lavender creams and oily feet. Instead, it comes with other-worldly, freakishly powerful Todd thumbs, elbows, and forearms. It comes with swearing and some tears, but in the end, I get relief and can get on with my life and my own work.
