Deep Tissue Therapy

What Is a Deep Tissue Massage?

When you get a deep tissue massage at Moon Spa 88, we focus on layers of muscle tissue that are deeper in your back. This kind of technique involves a deep pressure applied to the body in slow strokes. It helps to realign your muscles and tissues in your back and other surrounding areas.

You may want to consider a session if you have experienced:

  • Condition related pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Posture issues
  • Back or neck injuries
  • Frequent pain and tension

Does your back ache or feel tense? Are you stressed out from your day to day to life? Moon Spa 88 can help you release your tension with a deep tissue massage that could have great benefits for your body:

  • Reduces pain
  • Releases chronic tension
  • Increases your range of motion
  • Improves circulation
  • Relieves muscle spasms

Our therapists are trained to give you the best experience. We use specific techniques designed to give you the most relief. You can expect our therapists to use their fingertips, hands, knuckles, elbows, and forearms during your appointment. You can also expect to feel these techniques:

  • Friction: applied pressure across muscle grain to release tension and realign tissue
  • Stripping: deep pressure applied along the muscle using the thumbs, forearm, knuckles, and elbow

Our massages are available in various packages:

  • Couples Appointment
  • 60 Minute Appointment
  • 90 Minute Appointment

Pricing varies based on your chosen package. Please let us know if you have any special requests when we contact you, and we will do our best to accommodate your requests. You can book your appointment online, in person, or over the phone! Our therapists at Moon Spa 88 are excited to meet you and help you relieve your tension today.

What to Expect


We want all of our clients at Moon Spa 88 to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible during their appointment. At the beginning of your appointment, you will meet your therapist and be taken into your tranquil room. Your therapist will ask you to strip down to your level of comfort and return after you are settled face down on the masseuse’s table, covered by towels.


Your therapist will check in at times to ensure that you are comfortable with certain areas of your body throughout your session. You may be asked to breathe deeply during your session as your therapist works through higher tensions areas. This allows them to get deep into your muscles and relieve more tensions.


Your therapist will inform you that your session has been completed and leave the room so that you can redress. You may feel sore or stiff in some areas, but this is normal and should be relieved in about a day. We also suggest drinking water after your appointment to keep your body hydrated.
