What is a deep tissue massage and how does it work?

In certain ways similar to a standard massage or a Swedish massage in terms of the types of strokes used, deep tissue massages are unique as they target the deepest layers of the muscles and surrounding connective tissue to ease tension. During a deep tissue massage, your massage therapist will concentrate on applying steady pressure along with slow, deep strokes to provide relief.  This massage style is particularly beneficial to people experiencing chronic pains and muscle tightness, among other symptoms.

So, how exactly does a deep tissue massage work? The technique behind deep tissue massages is centered around breaking down scar tissue and adhesions, which are colloquially known as “muscle knots”. These adhesions are sections of rigid tissue which are often tender and painful to the touch and are found in areas where there is scar tissue, injury, or chronic tension present. By massaging the areas of scar tissue or adhesions, a deep tissue massage can help soothe a great deal of existing pain and stiffness.  

A deep tissue massage shouldn’t hurt, but it is normal to feel a bit more discomfort than with a traditional massage or some other massage therapy method, as the pressure during a deep tissue massage is generally more intense. If you feel pain during your deep tissue massage, it’s important to let your massage therapist know so to not cause unnecessary strain to the body.

Deep tissue massages are typically recommended for those who want to treat chronic aches and pains, but they also come with a number of other advantages like improving posture, lowering blood pressure, stimulating circulation, relieving stress, and aiding with injury related muscle recovery. However, if you have conditions such as bleeding disorders, clotting disorders, osteoporosis, cancer, or are taking blood thinners, you’ll want to consult with your doctor before trying out a deep tissue massage to check if this treatment is right for you.

How much does a deep tissue massage cost?

The exact cost of a deep tissue massage will vary based on a number of factors including the length of your deep tissue massage session, the experience of your massage therapist, as well as the salon or spa you choose to visit. Many deep tissue massage services can also charge extra for travel time with mobile massage services as well as certain add-ons like aromatherapy or hot stones. Prices in Chicago for a deep tissue massage usually average out to be between $80 to $110 dollars for a one-hour session, but you can check individual prices readily available next to each service on Booksy.
