Portland Deep Tissue Massage

Bamboo - Holistic Portland MassageThere are few things worse than paying for a massage and then leaving the appointment still feeling as if those knots are still there.  A Portland deep tissue massage promises to work deeper into the tissues, and release those painful knots that can cause tension and stiffness in your back, neck, and muscles.  As an experienced therapist, I use the proper deep tissue techniques for your massage, so you can find relief, increased movement, and relax at last.

When you’re ready for a strong massage, ask for a Portland deep tissue massage, and get a customized treatment that is exactly what you need!

Learn more about my Portland deep tissue massage:

Deep tissue massage – a deep, directed massage technique with firm stroking, kneading, and friction.The deeper, firmer pressure and manipulation is intended to work into the structures of the muscle tissue and fascia.Deep tissue massage can sometimes be painful, yet it is helpful in releasing difficult muscle tension, spasms, knots and congestion, and helping with sports injuries. Sports massage typically uses deep tissue massage techniques.

Ever wonder what deep tissue is all about?    It’s more about the focused area, the release of a deeper muscle and/or muscle groups.  Using slow strokes, light to medium to firm pressure will enhance the relaxation of the muscles and joints in the near vicinity.  Depending on the area of the body the massage is used, the therapist will used thumbs, knuckles, palms of the hand, and the forearm.  Great communication with the client and massage therapist will facilitate awareness of how much pressure is needed. While deep tissue bodywork massage can be more intense than other types of massage, let your therapist know if it is too painful so the amount of pressure  can be adjusted.

Deep tissue therapy will release knots that will allow your body to excrete built up toxins and lactic acid, so be sure to drink plenty of water after your massage to allow your body to let go of the bad stuff and so you will enjoy the results of your massage experience.  I hope you enjoy your Portland deep tissue massage!

Here are a few client testimonials:
"Jonathan is by far one of the most intuitive, kind, safe massage therapist I have ever seen. Great location, clean and comfortable setting. I left my appointment feeling renewed, refreshed and more connected to myself. Can't wait to book my next appointment! "

"Jonathan is a miracle worker. He truly cares about each of his clients and works with you to either heal what's aching, or provide blissful relaxation!
I had a hard time finding a reliabe and affordable massage therapist until I found Jonathan. Booking online is fast and easy, he consistently has affordable prices, and he is insanely knowledgable about muscles and how they work. I suffer from chronic pain, and he is the number one person I trust when it comes to healing pain relief. I recommend him to anyone and everyone. "

"My back muscles were really aching and I was able to make a last-minute appointment online with Jonathan; it was one of the best massages I've ever had. My back felt so much better afterwards. The soothing sound of ocean waves filled the massage studio and it was very relaxing. Jonathan is super nice, his massage studio is cozy, the face cradle on the massage table is very comfortable, and he is an excellent massage therapist. He was respectfully quiet during the massage. I am definitely returning for another massage."

"Wow what a refreshing experience. I have gotten massages all over the country and Jonathon knows the meaning of massage. I received a strong firm but pain free professional massage. I'm small but I have a ton of knots/tension from working out, so I need a deep tissue release. He works intuitively meaning what is done on the right may not be done exactly on the left, he moves where the knots are, he engages your entire body. this is not a routine for him and you're sent out the door. "

"One of the best massages I have ever had. Jonathan is extremely intuitive in his massage techniques. He just seems to read the body and understand where the stress points are more than any other massage therapist I have had."

"One of the best massages Ive ever had.
Ive found it very difficult to find a good, consistant massage therapist. I was asking around at work and was referred to Jonathan by a coworker and Im so happy I went to him! He is fantastic! The room is very relaxing and I felt very comfortable the entire time. He is in tune to what the body needs and uses massage along with stretching and bending. "

"Fantastic, intuitive, transformative massage. So glad a friend told me about Jonathan!"

"One of the best massages I've ever received... worth every penny!"

"LOVE HIS WORK It took a really bad massage somewhere else to make me realize just how amazing this man is. His room is warm with dim lighting and beautiful aroma therapy scents. He is kind and has a soft but firm and thorough style. He doesn't talk to much. There was never one moment where I felt as if I wanted to direct him. He was so thorough and remembered everything I told him was bothering me."
