At Body N Balance Massage Therapy located in Wantagh, Long Island we offer many types of massages. One of our massages that we recommend for people who want to relieve pain associated with muscle strain, sports injuries, whiplash or other debilitating conditions is the deep tissue massage. This type of massage works by manipulating the muscle’s underlying connective tissue which is otherwise known as the fascia, to loosen up areas that have stuck together to form “knots” and to increase overall flexibility.


The techniques used will help to increase circulation to targeted areas, stretch tissue and release toxins that were trapped. The motions that are used in a deep tissue massage are similar to those used in a Swedish massage but they tend to be more vigorous as to deeply penetrate the muscles. Pressure is more focused and intense in this type of massage so many people believe this type of massage is painful but that is not true. It may be uncomfortable at times when the “knots” are being worked out and areas are being worked on but it should never hurt you.


A deep tissue massage has many benefits such as relief from pain that may be associated with sports injuries, osteoarthritis, muscle spasms, strain injuries or whiplash. It is recommended that you attend multiple sessions to get the maximum effect. If you live near Wantagh, Long Island and find yourself experiencing pains related to the earlier mentioned conditions you might want to try a deep tissue massage for relief. Body N Balance can help you find relief from pain that you are experiencing and overall help you to relax your mind and body. Give yourself a break and come on down for some relaxation!
