The Deep Tissue Massage technique differs from others like the traditional Swedish massage in that it uses longer strokes with more firm pressure placed on the skin and muscle tissue. This tends to relieve muscle spasms, inflammation, soreness, and stress, and other musculature ailments.


As the name implies, deep tissue techniques were designed to work with the body on a deeper level than other massage types. The practitioner focuses on a problem area of the body, such as a region that has been injured in some way. The deep tissue massage will helps release toxins and get blood flowing through the muscles. Toxins are cleared, blood flows more freely; thus, more oxygen speeds into your problem areas which speeds up the healing process. It has been successful in helping with chronic pain, muscle injuries, as well as stress and emotional release.


When a client walks into Sean’s Massage Center, he or she is brought into an atmosphere that encourages relaxation and healing. Our practitioners massage them with Aveda oil on a warmed table with soothing music playing in the background to further advance the ambience. Some of the center’s members have developed friendships with the practitioners, who already know some of the problems the clients deal with. New faces are always welcome of course.
