My clients know what they are comfortable with, and I have an open co...Read more
What I say to someone who has never tried Deep Tissue Massage?
When I have someone come in who has never tried deep tissue massage and is interested but nervous because of what they've heard or experienced before, I gradually work them into the session. Deep Tissue is a tolerable pain, and though you can experience some discomfort 2-3 days after your session, it should not be debilitating.
