Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

Massage therapyDeep tissue massage, is one of the more popular forms of massage therapy treatment at Active Healing Centre.  It is effective in addressing long-term chronic pain, providing muscle pain relief and inducing relaxation.

It’s like getting a full body massage reset.

WHAT IS DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE?

Deep Tissue Massage is specific for massage in the deeper muscles of the body to provide relief from muscle aches and pains. Massage treatments may include trigger point therapy, remedial massage, and sports massage techniques.

The goal in deep tissue massage, is to breakdown the deeper layers of muscle fibres, including tendons and fascia, that have knotted together which are causing pain.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE?

Deep Tissue Massage is effective in treating:

  • Neck stiffness
  • Lower back tightness
  • Shoulder discomfort
  • Tension headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Recovery from injuries
  • Generalized muscle tension

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE?

The techniques in deep tissue massage are similar to classic Swedish massage, but the massage strokes are slower, the pressure is deeper, and more concentrated on specific areas of tension and pain.

These areas of pain are coupled with relaxation techniques to enhance the nervous system and induce a state of calmness and relaxation.

Deep tissue massage is recommended for relaxation, rehabilitation and restoration.  All the Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) at Active Healing Centre are highly-trained in providing deep tissue massage, and can quickly isolate and massage your areas of pain and discomfort.

Only members of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario are allowed to use the designation Massage Therapist (MT) or Registered Massage Therapists (RMT).

Massage therapy is not covered by OHIP, but many private insurance companies cover treatment from a massage therapist as part of their employee health benefit plan.  Please consult your policy.
