Deep Tissue Massage
Take a break from the hustle of the day-to-day and slip into a state of utter bliss and relaxation. This ultimate stress-relieving treatment will melt away pent-up stress, achy muscles and tension. Your therapist will customize your treatment to focus on areas of concern. You’ll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Deep tissue massages use firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia. This type of massage is used to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle "knots" or bands of painful, rigid tissue that can disrupt circulation and cause pain, limited range of motion and inflammation. Because this type of massage focuses on deeper muscles there can be some discomfort during the massage.
This is the ideal massage for chronic aches and pain, especially in the neck, back, legs and shoulders.

When you are booking a massage, it can help to understand a bit about the treatment you are going to receive. Deep tissue massage offers more pressure than a traditional massage, and it is often used to target areas that are located under superficial musculature, such as tendons, deep muscles, and fascia. This type of massage can be uncomfortable for some people, while others find it brings them relief from a variety of physical problems.

Communication with your masseuse
With a deep tissue massage, it’s important to communicate with your masseuse. At Skin Spa New York, each masseuse takes some time to talk with the client prior to treatment to get a full picture of any problem areas or injuries that they would like to see addressed during the massage. He or she will also discuss what type of pressure you prefer to make sure the treatment isn’t too painful. This communication will continue throughout the deep tissue massage, and you can feel comfortable at any time asking for less (or more) pressure. Often the massage will begin with lighter pressure to prepare the muscles and body for deeper work.
Why deep tissue?
Not everyone is a good candidate for deep tissue massage therapy, but it can be helpful for many clients with different needs. Those dealing with an injury or people who suffer from chronic pain conditions or extremely tight muscles may benefit from this approach. Everyone’s needs and pain tolerances will be a little bit different. If you like, we will be happy to talk with you about the various applications for deep tissue massage so you can decide if it is right for your needs.
We only use experienced deep tissue massage professionals to administer this type of treatment. Since this type of massage is often used for therapeutic reasons, it’s important that the masseuse understands how to do this work properly, so the client gets what they need without the risk of unnecessary pain or discomfort.
