Cal has been my massage therapist for well over a year. He is talented, professional and skillful. I have big giant knots in my shoulders from stress and an ample bosom.

Why Deep Tissue Massage?

What do you think of when you hear the term “Deep Tissue Massage?” Do you imagine a massage therapist really laying into your muscles? Do you imagine it being more painful or there being more pressure than a standard Swedish Massage? Not so!  It’s called “Deep Tissue” massage, not because the LMT applies deeper pressure, but because it addresses the tissue that exists under the superficial tissues of the body. When we use (and over-use) our Muscle fibers, they have a way of creating adhesions, and that restricts mobility and can cause pain, especially in key areas such as the neck, shoulders, and lower back.  Although deep tissue therapy can involve more pressure in certain areas, you might be surprised by how much release can come from gentle, conscious touch, or trigger point release. Deep Tissue massage is a good quick fix for, say, intense lower back pain or severe neck pain, but doesn’t always address root causes that might be a result of structural issues in the body as a whole, so I often use it in conjunction with other modalities, such as Myofascial release, or certain types of trigger point release and polarity therapy.

What are Some of the Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

  • Treats Chronic Back Pain.
  • Helps Lower High Blood Pressure.
  • Reduces Stress, Anxiety and Muscle Tension.
  • Breaks Up Scar Tissue.
  • Improves Athletic Recovery and Performance.
  • Reduces Arthritis Symptoms.

I felt and looked so much better after my message. He seemed to know what areas of my body without me telling him. I am happy that I bought the package of 5.

I have had many types of bodywork over a period of 20 years. I was looking for a new MT as mine had moved out of the area. A friend recommended Cal and when I found out he had a portable table and was willing to come to my home, that cinched it. Cal has a nice positive presence that is never intrusive and his hands are skilled in reading muscle. He is thorough and never rushed and always checks in to see what a client needs to focus on. I highly recommend him for massage therapy and bodywork in general.

I have had 8 sessions with Cal in the past 6 months. They have been so vital to my mental and physical health in times of extreme emotional stress and also in times of hard physical athletic training. Each time I leave Cal's lovely studio I feel centered, calm and light on my feet. He is an incredible bodyworker and energy healer.
