Deep Tissue Massage in Atlanta
Deep tissue massage is one of the many body massages that we offer at our Atlanta spa. This massage is a specific type of therapy that is similar to Swedish massage but with techniques used to concentrate on the deep layers of muscle in the body. It is a Western technique used to relieve tension and pain that stems from deep within the muscle and connective tissue. We recommend deep tissue massages for individuals who experience stiffness and tension stemming from bad posture or previous injuries.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage therapy helps alleviate muscle tension, inflammation and associated pain, and even break up scar tissue by loosening the tight tissue clusters and increasing the blood flow with the use of deep pressure application. These techniques are also used to treat an array of physical conditions and reduce the heart rate by triggering the release of serotonin. Deep tissue massage can benefit individuals who experience:
- Chronic Pain
- High Blood Pressure
- Muscle Injury
- Muscle Stiffness and Tension
- Poor Posture
- Scar Tissue
The Difference Between Deep Tissue and Swedish Massage
Deep tissue massage techniques are very similar to that of traditional Swedish massage with the primary difference being increased pressure application which aims at affecting the deeper tissue structure of the muscles. The massage therapist will choose between several strokes depending on the size of the muscle that is negatively affected. Our trained massage therapists do not force pressure into the muscle, but rather apply pressure until the muscle pushes back. The pressure applied should not be painful, but it is common to experience soreness after a deep tissue massage.
Before your massage, be sure to discuss your specific ailments with the therapist before the massage starts so that we can tailor your session to meet your needs and provide a massage tailored for you.

“All I can say it WOW! My experience here was very much needed to say the least. I had a deep tissue couples massage for a whole hour, yes, 60 minutes. From the time I walked in to the time I walked out, the staff was very friendly and professional. The place was very clean, modern, and well kept.
We had an appointment at 6pm and right when we got there, we were taken inside to our massage room. We were asked if we had a preference as to male or female as well if we needed to use the bathroom before we started which I thought was very necessary. I told them I didn’t have a preference and I was matched up with a male.
My massage was awesome! Definitely a deep tissue massage. Throughout the 60 minutes, I was asked if the pressure was just right which I appreciated very much. The atmosphere was very quiet as it should be, and I was very relaxed. They incorporated hot stones as part of the deep tissue massage which was my favorite part of it all. After the 60 minutes were up, we were offered water or hot tea to take with us as we left.
Overall my experience was pleasant and very relaxing.”
“I travel frequently for work and usually try to get a massage near where I’m staying. Tonight I decided I would treat myself to a massage after work. Treat Your Feet Buckhead was right next to my hotel so I decided to walk over and see if they had availability for a 1 hour massage. I walked in and was pleasantly greeted. The facility is very clean and well appointed. They had availability and I chose a 1 hour deep tissue massage and was escorted to a massage room. The room was clean, neat, good temperature and well decorated. I requested a male therapist which they accommodated. Albert, my massage therapist was amazing. Deep pressure just like I wanted. He was also very meticulous and thorough. I highly recommend him and this location.”
