Will it hurt?

Sometimes treatments are uncomfortable or even painful. Some people think that if it hurts, it must be working, but that’s not necessarily true.

Discomfort is normal, but if you’re in actual intense pain, tell your therapist. There’s no shame in asking them to take it down a notch.

Deep tissue vs. Swedish massage

Deep tissue massage is different from other popular styles of massage, like Swedish massage and reflexology. In addition to their hands, therapists may use their elbows and forearms to increase pressure. They may also hold the intensity for a longer period of time than in a relaxation massage.
