Deep Tissue Massage

Book a deep tissue massage with our massage therapist at Human Integrated Performance. Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as:

  • Stiff necks
  • Low back tightness
  • Sore shoulders


Deep tissue massage can be beneficial for individuals who have chronic pain or sustained physical trauma. This type of massage can help break up and release scar tissue from injuries. It can also help with the reduction of inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendinitis. If you have had a recent injury, please disclose any relevant information to your massage therapist so they can adapt the session to your needs.

Deep tissue massage is more intense than a relaxation massage, but it should not be painful. It is important to communicate with your massage therapist if you feel any discomfort during your session. They will adjust the pressure and technique as needed. It is also recommended to drink plenty of water after a deep tissue massage to help flush out the toxins that were released from your muscles.

Human Integrated Performance is a multidisciplinary health clinic near you. Conveniently located in central West Edmonton on Stony Plain Road.

New Patient? How Can We Help You?

We can help you with:

Our therapeutic treatment options can reduce stress by balancing your body’s energy, helping your brain and muscles to relax, and regulating the production of chemicals that trigger stress.

Acupuncture, massage therapy, and chiropractic care can be effective in treating hip pain. Treatment can help to reduce the tightness on the joint muscles and tendons and opens the blood vessels.

Myofascial massage therapy will relax tense muscles and reduce pain. It is best treated using trigger point massage therapy.

You can effectively treat soft tissue strains or injuries with Swedish, deep tissue, and trigger point therapy. This helps to reduce tension, stiffness, and spasms. It also relieves pain.

Neck pain can be caused by multiple factors, such as poor posture, over-strenuous movement, injury, worn joints, or even disease. We have several treatment options that can help you recover, by reducing stiffness and strengthening the neck muscles.

A shoulder injury can leave you hurt and vulnerable to further injury. We have multiple treatment options for shoulder pain at our clinic. Getting treatment can reduce pain by relieving nerve compression, muscle strain, and joint pressure. You will have more range of movement and the shoulder joint will be more flexible.

Occupational injuries usually result from accidents or work-related activities that require repetitive motion. This can cause long-term stress on the body, which can lead to further problems if left untreated. We help our clients recover from work-related injuries back to health, to get you back to work faster.

Symptoms of whiplash include neck and back pain, stiffness and soreness, headaches, fatigue, and more. If you have recently been involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA), a sports injury, or suspect you have whiplash, consult with one of our healthcare professionals to determine your best recovery plan.

When deciding how frequently you should get a massage, it all boils down to what your body needs. If you’re dealing with pain or an injury, then more frequent visits could prove beneficial; however, if relaxation is the only aim here, less frequent appointments may be suitable for your situation.

The average massage therapy session is 30 minutes to 1 hour long. But the therapist can make it shorter or longer, depending on what kind of massage you want and how long you want it. For example, if you want a deep tissue massage, it may be more than 1 hour. If you just want to relax, it may be only 30 minutes. It is best to talk with your massage therapist before the massage. This way you can figure out how long the massage should be.

During a massage therapy session, your therapist will give you their full attention. Your therapist may ask you how you’re feeling and what you hope to accomplish during the session. Your therapist will then use different types of pressure and techniques to help relax your muscles, reduce tension, and improve your overall well-being.

It is typically customary to undress to your comfort level for a massage therapy session, usually down to your underwear. Some types of massage may require full nudity, but the therapist will ensure you are properly draped during the session to maintain modesty and comfort. It’s important to communicate your level of comfort and undress only as much as you feel comfortable.
