Deep Tissue Massage St. Pete | Deep Tissue Massage Therapy in St. Petersburg, Florida

Have you ever received a massage therapy session that was relaxing, but you just wished your therapist would use deeper pressure to break up restricted muscles and help release those painful knots? Then you may want a deep tissue massage.

Let’s face it, we all face more stress and tension at various times in our lives, and that is when you need a little more than just a relaxation massage.

My St. Pete deep tissue massage is designed to help restore blood flow and movement: so if you have tight, painful knots, or restricted movement in your neck or back, this is for you! This massage therapy service is also great for deep tissue sports massage, for weekend warriors and athletes, and for clients suffering from conditions like a frozen shoulder or other restricted movement where you need deeper work than a relaxation massage can provide.

What is a Deep Tissue Massage?

A deep tissue massage is similar in technique to a classic therapeutic Swedish massage, but uses much deeper, and sustained pressure to release deep-seated knots, tension, and restriction from your muscles and fascia so you can restore movement and flexibility and feel better.  My St. Pete deep tissue massage allows me to work deeper into the muscle and fascia tissues, and release those painful knots that can cause restricted movement and tension and stiffness.

Learn more about deep tissue massage:

Deep tissue massage – this is a deeper, more directed massage technique with firm stroking, kneading, and friction. The deeper, firmer pressure and manipulation is intended to work into the structures of the muscle tissue and fascia (connective tissue surrounding muscles).

Deep tissue massage is helpful in releasing difficult muscle tension, spasms, knots and congestion, and helping with sports or other related injuries. Sports massage typically uses deep tissue massage techniques.

Benefits of a Deep Tissue Massage in St. Pete

Following regular deep tissue massage bodywork, you will experience greater range of motion, improved body posture and movement, and a greater sense of ease as stress and tension is released.

As an experienced licensed massage therapist in St. Petersburg, FL, I am trained on how to utilize professional, therapeutic deep tissue massage techniques like myofascial release and other approaches. While deeper tissue work may cause some initial discomfort during the service as I apply the deeper pressure to certain areas, you will get better results once blood flow is restored to your muscles and knots of tension have been released.  You will want to drink lots of water to flush toxins from your body, when receiving deep tissue bodywork.

When you’re ready for a strong massage in St. Pete, request my deep tissue massage, and get a customized treatment that is exactly what you need!

Customized, Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage St. Pete

I customize each massage therapy session to meet the needs of my client. Great communication is important: deep tissue massage can be more intense than other types of massage, so please me know if the massage pressure is painful. I can adjust the level of pressure to your comfort level, so please let me know if I am not using enough (or am using too much) pressure for your comfort.  I can include aromatherapy essential oils in your massage, at your request, to enhance your massage experience.  Gentle stretching is always included in the massage at no added cost.

Deep tissue therapy will release knots that will allow your body to excrete built up toxins and lactic acid. To assist in flushing toxins, please remember to drink plenty of water after your massage. This will help your body free toxins and enhance how great you feel following your massage service.  Keep hydrated to experience the benefits of this service.

Pain free

Jonathan Prue has been my massage therapist for the last 12 years. After a body massage from Jonathan, I am pain free for 3 days! I drove an hour each way to get a session with him each month.  He tailors his therapy to address my current needs and could identify the point of origin of my pain, work on it, and give me relief from my chronic pain.

Skilled, with such intuition

I have been a regular monthly client of Jonathan's for over 10 years, before his move from Oregon to Florida. Like myself, I am sure that many of his clients were sad to lose him to sunny Florida. I am not sure that I will find another massage therapist as skilled, with such intuition. Highest recommendation!

Relaxed, renewed, & ready to take on the day

I have had many massages over the years and not one LMT has left me feeling the way I felt during and after my massage with Jonathan- relaxed, refreshed, renewed, ready to take on the day, balanced, and just all around more in tune with my body.  I am amazed by his work, his energy, and the entire ambiance of the place.  It truly was a Spiritual Experience!
