Deep Tissue Therapy

Different forms of massage therapy can be used for a variety of reasons. Most people get a massage to relax and relieve tension, but those are only two of the numerous benefits a massage can offer. Deep tissue therapy also promotes circulation to decrease tendonitis and repetitive motion trauma, pain, and injury.

At The City of Orange Physical Medicine Group, our massage therapy is centered around deep tissue massage. Our talented massage therapists use a range of techniques to relax your tight muscles and relieve tension from deep within your muscle tissues.

Tight muscles place pressure on nerves that can cause headaches, mid back pain, hip tightness, pain, and sciatica. Tight muscles can result from athletic endeavors, as well as a sedentary lifestyle, such as sitting at a desk all day for work, lack of exercise, poor posture, and old injuries.

What is Deep Tissue Massage Therapy?

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but with deeper pressure for the purpose of releasing chronic muscle tension. As the name suggests, deep tissue massage therapy focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia.


One thing people love about deep tissue massage therapy is that you can feel the benefits immediately. After one session it’s normal to see a reduction in stress hormone levels and an increase in oxytocin and serotonin – boosting your mood and causing deep relaxation.

Deep tissue massage therapy isn’t as painful as some make it out to be, but you can expect to feel some mild discomfort in areas with excess muscle tension. Our massage therapists want to ensure you are safe and comfortable at all times, but some people are more sensitive than others. We encourage you to always communicate with your therapist before and during your session.

The Benefits of Deep Tissue Therapy

Massage therapy has been used for centuries around the world for a wide range of medical conditions. Although many seek out massage therapy as a stand-alone service, it is often used in combination with other forms of alternative medicine as part of a holistic treatment plan.

The benefits of deep tissue therapy include:

  • Pain reduction
  • Anti-aging benefits
  • Stress reduction
  • Relaxation of sore muscles
  • Increased circulation
  • Improved healing from injury
  • Boosted immune function
  • Improved sleep
  • Normalization of blood pressure
  • Decrease in tendonitis and repetitive motion trauma
  • Anxiety reduction
  • Aid with digestive disorders

Aside from the medical benefits, many people enjoy massage therapy simply because it feels relaxing and rejuvenating. Whether you’re an athlete that puts a lot of wear-and-tear on your body or you’re an office worker with built-up stress and tension in your muscles – everyone can benefit from a professional deep tissue massage.
