Deep Tissue Massage Therapy in Austin

‘Press harder please’ Find yourself walking away from massages feeling like you’ve been pet?  Not at Mantis.  More pressure means MORE PRESSURE.  This is our specialty.

Unlike traditional massages, deep tissue massage therapy focuses on the realignment of your deeper muscle layers and connective tissues. If you experience chronic tension in your muscles and tissues or have contracted body areas, like stiff neck, tight lower back, or sore shoulders, a deep tissue massage can provide effective, long-term relief.

By using a combination of classic and advanced massage techniques, our professional massage therapists apply slow, deep pressure on your target areas to relieve chronic pain and tension, and improve overall health.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Our treatment is specifically tailored to your body’s requirements to provide you with uniform, long-lasting relief. Some of the primary benefits of our deep tissue massage treatment include:

Soothes Chronic Pain
We customize each massage to treat your specific pain points to fully relieve any and all pain by relaxing muscles, connective tissue, and fascia.

Aids Injury Rehabilitation
By relaxing an injured muscle and soothing pain, our massage therapy can help increase blood flow and stimulate the injured area to promote healing.

Increases Mobility
Rigid, tight, or tense muscles can hinder mobility. By relaxing those areas and improving blood flow, your muscles and joints can move more freely and maintain greater flexibility.

Improves Heart, Lung, & Circulatory Function
Deep tissue massages relax the body, which is proven to lower heart rate and blood pressure while stimulating the lungs and circulation.

In addition, deep tissue massage therapy relieves stress, releases tension, detoxifies your body, and improves athletic performance.

What to Expect

Our professional and highly experienced Austin deep tissue massage therapists develop a customized massage treatment to address your specific needs. It is a combination of traditional and advanced massage techniques, which use knuckles, hands, fingertips, elbows, and forearms to relieve pain.

You might need to take deep breaths during the massage while your therapist works on the targeted areas of tension and tenderness. When pressure points are triggered, blood flow increases to help remove toxins and releases deep tension within your muscles and tissues. We advise our clients to drink plenty of water to help the body flush out toxins released during the treatment.

Do Deep Tissue Massages Hurt?

You may experience slight discomfort or pain in some spots, as your massage therapist works on rigid muscles, knots, or scar tissues. Be sure to tell your therapist about any pain you may feel during the massage so they can adjust your treatment accordingly and ensure you’re comfortable. Massage therapists can begin with a softer massage to prepare especially tender muscles for deeper probing or alter their movement to make it more comfortable.

After the massage session, a warm bath or shower can facilitate the relaxation of sore muscles for a greater length of time.
