Do you want the BEST Deep Tissue Massage Arizona has to offer?
As your deep tissue massage therapist we will listen and understand what you need, where your tension, aches and pains are, and exactly the style of deep tissue massage and pressure you like.
While some massages relax and rejuvenate your body, deep tissue massage has therapeutic effects which are capable of healing your body and repairing muscles, tissues, and joints. The slow, firm strokes against the grain of the muscle may cause some discomfort because deep tissue massage impacts deep layers of muscle and connecting tissues known as fascia.
Unlike Swedish massage, which has a relaxing effect and uses lighter pressure, deep tissue massage is done using deep finger pressure with strokes that are firm and slow. Deep tissue massage has several therapeutic effects and can be used to treat many different conditions. This type of massage is ideal for the treatment of major muscle groups like the neck or lower back. It can also be used to relieve strain and treat injuries in your joints and tendons.
Please bear in mind is that deep tissue massage is used for therapy and rehabilitation, not relaxation. So you need to be prepared to feel some discomfort during and after a deep tissue massage.
Gua Sha Massage Treatment
scraping your skin with a special massage tool to improve your circulation and promote healing
Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation.
In gua sha, your therapist scrapes your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow. They make these strokes with a smooth-edged instrument known as a gua massage tool.
Gua sha is intended to address stagnant energy, called chi, in the body that practitioners believe may be responsible for inflammation. Inflammation is the underlying cause of several conditions associated with chronic pain. Rubbing the skin’s surface is thought to help break up this energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
Gua sha is generally performed on a person’s back, buttocks, neck, arms, and legs. A gentle version of it is even used on the face as a facial technique. Your technician may apply mild pressure, and gradually increase intensity to determine how much force you can handle.
Hot Stone Massage

Soothing, smooth igneous stones lifted from heated water and used with warm oils in long flowing strokes, connecting body and spirit. Alternating heated stones with cooled marble stones, creating balance. Hot, cold, fire and ice. Soothing, nurturing, dance with stones.

very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body
Manual lymph drainage massage (also called lymphatic drainage and lymph massage) is a very gentle massage that encourages lymph flow in the body to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart.
Lymphatic Drainage is a manual release of lymphatic ducts and glands, which improves circulation of the lymph fluid, and boosts the immune system. Lymphatic Drainage can be done full body to boost overall health or it can be more focused to decrease congestion in specific areas (i.e. face, legs, abdomen). Stuffy nose? Congested chest? Lymphatic Drainage is a 100% natural way to boost the immune system and help you recover through sickness faster!
