Releasing deep muscle tension
Providing lasting pain relief
Loosening scar tissue adhesions
Chronic and overuse injuries
Deep tissue massage therapy is designed to relieve restrictions, tension, and pain in the deep layers of muscle and fascial connective tissue.
This form of manual therapy is particularly effective for individuals who are involved in activities that require heavy physical exertion or careers that create unnatural postural positions…such as computer work. This would include people involved in sporting activities, manual labour occupations, transportation professionals, and office workers.

Will Deep Tissue Massage Hurt?
Some deep tissue massage sessions can be intense as a result of the deliberate, focused work. At certain points during the massage, there is usually various levels of discomfort and depends on the area being worked and the patients level of tolerance to discomfort. It is important to tell your massage therapist when the discomfort or pain you experience is outside your comfort zone…good deep tissue therapy does not have to involve extreme discomfort. At painPRO our therapists are trained to communicate with you to ensure your comfort.
It is not uncommon for you to feel some level of aching over the next 24-36 hours as the body is recovering.

How Does It Work?
To be honest we don’t know the exact mechanisms of why or how it works. There are many theories but no substantive proof and the truth is deep tissue massage doesn’t work for everybody or every situation. This type of treatment needs to used judiciously and with specific patients. One thing we are certain of is that deep tissue massage activates the bodies production of inflammation reducing enzymes in addition to helping with correcting connective tissue adhesions.
