What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Table of Contents
Receiving deep tissue massage from our Registered Massage Therapists (RMT’s) targets the deeper layers of muscles, tendons, and connective tissues in the body.
This technique is used to help relieve chronic muscle tension and pain, and improve range of motion and flexibility after accidents or injuries.
During a deep tissue massage, the RMT Massage therapist applies pressure using their fingers, thumbs, fists, elbows, and even forearms to reach the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
The pressure applied is typically more intense than that used in Swedish massage, and the therapist will always work within your comfort level and adjust the pressure as needed.
What Conditions Are Used With Deep Tissue Massage Toronto?
Deep tissue massage can be used to treat a variety of conditions such as:
- chronic pain

Regular communication throughout the session will ensure that the pressure is appropriate and effective for your needs.
That is the Difference Between Massage and Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is just one of a variety of massage techniques. The main difference between massage and deep tissue massage is the amount of pressure and the techniques used.
Regular massage typically uses lighter pressure and is more focused on relaxation and stress relief and deep tissue massage Toronto, involves the use of firm pressure to help alleviate chronic pain and muscle tension. It is often recommended for people with injuries, specific pain or tension concerns.
Is Deep Tissue Massage Painful?
It may also be more intense and uncomfortable at times, but should not be painful. It is important to communicate with your massage therapist to ensure that the pressure and techniques used are appropriate for your comfort level.
5 Health Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
1. Relaxes Muscles
When people are sitting for long hours, they may experience back or muscle pain. RMT Massage therapy can help ease this pain as it relaxes tense muscles as it increases and improves blood circulation.
Also, RMT massage has been associated with reduced stiffness and pain and an improved range of movement in individuals with osteoarthritis.
2. Boosts Immunity
Massage has also been associated with enhanced immune system. Research studies have found that massage increases white blood cells in the body, which are responsible for fighting diseases.
Deep Tissue Massage can naturally boost the cytotoxic capacity of the immune system, which is the action level of the natural ‘killer cells’ of the body.
3. Relieves Headaches
Just like back and muscle pain, massage is also for headache relief. Research studies have demonstrated that regular massage can decrease an individual’s number of migraines and limit how painful each migraine feels.
Deep Tissue Massage helps to relieve the pain and pressure felt and also lower the likelihood and frequency of headaches. Massage helps to curb some of the anxiety and anger linked to tension headaches.
4. Eases Aches and Pains
Deep tissue massage can also be particularly helpful for individuals suffering from aches and pains.
Several studies have demonstrated that RMT massage can ease aches, swelling, fatigue, nausea, anxiety or depression in patients.
