Deep tissue massage is great therapy for breaking up and eliminating scar tissue from previous injuries. The deep tissue massage delivered by one of our therapist in Kanata, Almonte, and Carleton Place unblocks muscles so they can receive nutrients and oxygen to reduce inflammation and pain.
Deep Tissue Massage targets the deep tissue structure of the fascia and muscles, referred to as connective tissue. Of the many types of massage, deep tissue focuses on the release of muscle tension and chronic knots (aka adhesions).
There are two primary techniques for deep tissue massages, Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) and myofascial release.
NMT works by focusing on creating a balance between your central nervous system (brain, spine, and nerves) and your affected muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and joints.
Myofascial release works by stretching and lengthening the connective tissue coverings called fascia that surround every part of our internal structure, including our bones, muscles, and organs. Tight fascia can cause pain and restrict joint mobility.
Both are effective, but we’ll find the right technique for you – be it one of these two deep tissue techniques or another – to relieve your pain. We encourage you to at least consult with us about deep tissue massage before you get scared off by something that really does work, with minimal discomfort.

Deep tissue massage is one of the most beneficial as well as misunderstood techniques our massage therapists in Almonte, Kanata, and Carleton Place utilize.
A deep tissue massage from our Almonte, Kanata, and Carleton Place massage therapists involves the manipulation of the deeper layers of muscle and soft tissues in the body. It requires the massage therapist to reach deep layers by warming up the muscles on top.
It’s assumed, feared, and ultimately a barrier to trying a deep tissue massage it will be painful. The fact is, most find deep tissue massages so relaxing that is not the case at all.
Let’s be honest, this process of reaching deep tissue layers could be quite painful when the massage therapy is placed in the wrong hands. But often pain comes from an over-eager desire to reach the deep tissue in the first session. Often one session to “prep” your body for a deep tissue massage is useful, presents resistance, and maximize deep tissue massage benefits. Taking you through this session will prevent your muscles to tense up during the deep tissue massage.
Our massage therapists will work within your comfort level and pain tolerance at all times. If you experience mild discomfort, that’s okay – that means he deep tissue massage is working. If you have pain, tell us, we will back off and take the process slower. But keep in mind, it is our job to keep you comfortable and relaxed, otherwise why have a massage at all?

Previously we’ve taken a look at both the preventive (Massage Therapy to Keep You Healthy) and healing (Massage Therapy to Overcome Medical Conditions) powers of massage therapy. Today we’re examining the mental health benefits of Absolute Massage Therapy’s variety of massage therapy and techniques serving Almonte, Kanata, and Carleton Place provide many health benefits. These include:
An Ottawa massage from Absolute will soothes nerves and tired muscles. Tension is stored in our muscles, no matter the cayuse. Massage therapy relaxes your body, and relieves your mind. With less stress comes more energy in the short term and a longer life long term.
When you release tension with Absolute’s Ottawa massage therapy, you are also reducing anxiety, which goes hand-in-hand with depression. reduce anxiety and depression typically goes down as well.
Studies show that a massage stimulates brain-wave activity to help with a deeper sleep and with that comes more energy… when you are not asleep of course. Scientifically, massage therapy increases the amount of serotonin in your body, which helps with a more restful sleep. Insomnia sufferers report they have a restful night sleep after a massage session with one of our therapists.
In today’s increasingly hectic world where you are bombarded with stimuli all day and night, it’s tough to focus without some downtime. Ottawa massage therapy from Absolute gives your mind downtime so you’re able to focus better the rest of your day.

In part two of our series on the benefits of massage therapy, we take a look at the ways in which massages keep you healthy. As a refresher, we’re examining the benefits of an Almonte, Kanata, and Carleton Place Massage from several different perspectives:
Absolute Massage Therapy’s variety of massage therapy and techniques serving Almonte, Kanata, and Carleton Place provide many health benefits, including:
Massage therapy stimulates blood circulation increasing oxygen and nutrient flow to connective tissue and muscles. This helps remove scar tissue and muscle adhesions as well as lubricate joints for increased flexibility.
Through the massage therapy process – kneading, pushing and pressing – blood circulation is increased bringing oxygen to tissue cells to help cleanse cells and wash away toxins.
A Natural High
Massage therapy releases endorphins, the chemicals in your brain that make you feel good and recharged. Endorphins have a quality that is described as causing exhilaration and relaxation and thus it often relieves pain, anxiety, and stress that you may be experiencing.
Improve Your Immune System
With a massage comes better blood circulation, yielding more infection fighting white blood cells. And as stress naturally lowers your immune system, the relaxation you experience with a Kanata, Almonte, or Carleton Place massage will naturally counteract that. Even people with severely compromised immunity have seen major improvements through the addition of massage to their treatment regimen.
Less Aches and Pains
Stiffness, aches, pains… we all experience these. Our muscles tense up – often in the same trouble spots. An Absolute Massage therapist can work these areas to prevent tension and strains.
Massages increase your dopamine levels and serotonin levels – meaning less stress, depression and anxiety.
Prevent Future Injury
Unattended tendons, ligaments, and muscles can become chronic pain that could have been avoided with regular bodywork. One of the greatest benefits of massage you will never know about. It is the disease avoided and the injury that did not take place, because your body was in good shape to handle life’s challenges, all with a little massage.

Over the next several blogs we’ll be examining the benefits of an Almonte, Kanata, and Carleton Place Massage from several different perspectives:
- Massage Therapy to Overcome Medical Conditions
- Massage Therapy to Keep You Healthy
- Massage Therapy for Better mental Health
- Using Massage Therapy to Enhance Your Lifestyle
Absolute Massage Therapy serves the citizens of Almonte, Kanata, and Carlton Place – providing affordable and professional massage therapy services for a variety of medical ailments, the most common being:
Massage therapy serves as a “kick start” to your body’s ability to heal itself in a variety of ways including boosting your immune system – often cutting recovery time in half.
Scientific studies have shown that a majority of chronic migraine sufferers (60%) dramatically reduced or eliminated the occurrence of migraines when treated regularly by massage therapy.
Whether you have pain from an accident, age, or ailment, massages are a great alternative to medications to help relieve what ails you – and there are no side effects! .
Improve Circulations and Blood Flow
With each Kanata, Almonte, or Carlton Place massage comes improves blood flow that not only expedites healing, but can actually (temporarily) lower blood pressure. The massage therapy process promotes cleansing, oxygenated blood to flow. Massaging also reduces swelling or edema that occurs with high blood pressure through the activation of the lymph system, naturally flushing out excess fluids. No one is saying massage therapy is a cure for high blood pressure, but it helps as part of an overall treatment plan.
Settle Your Stomach
Believe it or not, relaxation you experience during massage stimulates the part of the brain that controls digestion – the parasympathetic nervous system – but of course you knew that from 8th grade biology class. Gentle pressure to your abdomen can relieve congested areas of the digestive tract. Additionally, as stress and tension are major causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, massage therapy are extremely therapeutic.
