With so many types of massage to provide to clients, why do I choose to provide Deep Tissue Massage? The short answer is because Deep Tissue is the style of massage that I get done on myself and it works for me. It is a straight-forward style of massage where you can feel the work being done and tell that it will make a difference right away.
Before I became a massage therapist, I was a massage therapy client. Even before I started studying massage at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Kitchener, I was seeing Kevin Heeney, a Deep Tissue massage therapist in Kitchener. I got great results with the work Kevin did on me. In fact, Kevin is part of the reason that I became a massage therapist and has been a mentor to me ever since (though I don’t think he realizes it). Any time I have injured my back or neck at work, rock climbing, playing with the kids, or working in the backyard, Kevin has been there for me. I can’t see myself wanting to do anything for my clients other than what Kevin does for me.
I am a deep tissue therapist and a deep tissue massage client because it works for me and for my clients.
