Jason H. says, "Allie was great! The first time we scheduled something came up and we had to change it but on the second time we went 10 for 10 :-) Allie was on time, had great communication, and the most important part, an unbelievably good massage. From the second her hands hit me I could tell she was a pro. She asked me what areas I wanted to focus on, and was very attentive! You won't go wrong with this girl and should definitely give her a shot :-)" Read more

Your deep tissue massage questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does a deep tissue massage cost?

A deep tissue massage costs $80 to $120 per hour on average, depending on location and the therapist's experience. Rates are higher for in-home deep tissue massage, costing $100 to $130 per hour for the added convenience and reduced stress of not having to leave your home or deal with traffic.

  • Adding extras like aromatherapy or reflexology to your session increases the cost by $10 to $50+, depending on the service.
  • Most therapists offer a discounted rate when purchasing 5+ sessions at once.

What is a deep tissue massage?

A deep tissue massage involves firm pressure and slow, smooth strokes to sink deep into the layers of muscle and connective tissue. Rather than just focusing on relaxation like Swedish massage therapy, deep tissue massage aims to reduce chronic pain and stiffness by breaking down knots and adhesions that are restricting movement and causing tightness and discomfort.

Using their hands, forearm, elbow, or specially designed massage tools, the therapist may use one or several techniques during a deep tissue massage, including:

  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Cross-fiber friction
  • Muscle stripping

Does deep tissue massage hurt?

No, deep tissue massage should never hurt. While you may feel some soreness for a day or two after a massage, you should not feel pain during the massage. Always communicate with your therapist if you feel pain during the session. Experiencing pain during a massage can cause your muscles to tense and tighten more, resulting in the opposite effect that most people are seeking when they schedule a massage.

Can you get a deep tissue massage while pregnant?

Most doctors and therapists recommend avoiding deep tissue massage during pregnancy, especially deep pressure to the legs that could dislodge a blood clot. Prenatal Swedish massage using gentle pressure and avoiding the abdomen can help lower stress, decrease leg and back pain, and improve sleep and mood. However, be sure to discuss any type of massage with your doctor first to confirm it will not put you or your baby at risk.

How long should you wait in between deep tissue massages?

Most therapists recommend waiting at least 48 hours in between deep tissue massages, to allow the system to rebalance itself after such deep bodywork. A general scheduling guideline is to get a deep tissue massage once per month at minimum or up to 3 times per week to manage pain and stress, always leaving at least a 2-day gap between sessions.

How much do you tip for a deep tissue massage?

Tipping a deep tissue massage therapist 15% to 20% is common in most areas. You do not need to tip for a deep tissue massage at a medical office or hospital where the therapy is often covered by insurance. If your therapist works for a spa or non-medical setting, a good amount of what you pay goes to the facility, not the therapist. While tipping is not required, it can make a significant difference in a massage therapist's take-home income.

  • Most therapists prefer a cash tip so they don't have to wait for it in their paycheck.
  • If you are using a gift certificate or a coupon, calculate your tip based on the full price of the service.
  • Consider tipping more during the holidays if you see the same massage therapist regularly.

How do I choose the best deep tissue massage near me?

When researching deep tissue massage therapy services near you, be sure to:

  • Choose a licensed and insured company or therapist that has been in business for at least 5 years.
  • Confirm their licensing information. Most states have an online database where you can look up a therapist's license information and status.
  • If your state does not regulate massage therapy, look for a therapist specializing in deep tissue massage with at least 500 hours of training from a reputable massage therapy school.
  • Search for members of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP) or the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).
  • Read their reviews on Google and Thervo.

What questions should I ask when searching for deep tissue massage therapist?

Ask these questions to help you choose the best deep tissue massage therapist near you:

  • What training and certifications do you have?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How long have you been a massage therapist?
  • Will deep tissue massage help my specific problem?
  • What add-on services do you offer, and how much extra do they cost?
  • Do you require a health questionnaire?
  • Do you offer a discount if I buy several sessions in advance?

"10/10" , This is the first thing I could say about my session with Nadia. Was recommended by a family member to book a session with her and honestly I'm glad I did. Definitely focused on troubled area of the body (shoulder) . I came in tensed n stressed and left calmed and relaxed. Will definitely book another session when I come back into town .

Pure Zen! LaQuitta has amazing hands and technique, she provided just the right amount of pressure to release the built tension in my neck, shoulders and back - I feel so much lighter and at ease in my body! Not to mention, she has this incredible ability to create a calming and grounding experience. I could really feel the energy flow and release as I moved into a deeper state of relaxation. If you’ve been experiencing stress and physical tension and want to feel better physically, mentally and emotionally, go see LaQuitta!
