Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage

Do you have chronic pain or tension in your body?  If so, deep tissue massage is what you need.  Maybe you have had a car accident, past sports injuries, or an injury of any kind, and have not felt the same since.  I have had multiple clients come to me with chronic issues they thought would never get resolved. They tried physical therapy, pain meds and muscle relaxers, and even acupuncture. Nothing worked until they began receiving regular massage therapy.  It was at this time they started seeing results and experiencing lasting benefits.

Hot Stone Massage Chapel Hill


A reflexology session begins with a nice, warm foot soak in sea salt and essential oils followed by an exfoliation. Afterwards, you lie down on a comfortable massage table to have reflex points in your feet massaged with oils. These points relate to various places throughout the body, i.e., heart, lungs, colon, and sinuses. Massaging these various points affects your overall health and can help to clear out any congested areas within the body. After a session, people often feel they have had a full-body massage.

La Stone Hot Stone Massage

La Stone is an hour and 30 minutes of pure bliss. Perfectly warmed, smooth stones are used to rub away all the tension in your body.

The stones used in this treatment are collected at volcano sites. The gatherer seeks out a matching pair, therefore these stones are never melted down—a process that destroys their energy. This allows for the stones to support the clearing of your energy field.

From the heat of the stones and the energy of the stones themselves La Stone hot stone massage truly lends to a very deep sense of relaxation that can be more difficult to obtain in a regular massage.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy Massage is essential to a woman at a time when her body is going through major transformations. As the hormones change and the body prepares itself for giving birth, the body literally begins to shift and expand. This process can put pressure on muscles and impinge nerves and the circulatory system. The hormonal change can also increase the feelings of everyday stress. What better way to support yourself through this time than to receive a massage?

Massage after giving birth is also very useful. The birthing process is very traumatic on the body, every muscle tensing, as well as the emotional exhaustion that comes from this experience. Massage can help the muscles to relax and support your body in getting rid of stress hormones, increasing your overall health and well-being, and shortening recovery time.

Your Path to Relief with Deep Tissue Massage Chapel Hill

Your Path to Relief with Deep Tissue Massage Chapel Hill

The journey to relief at InnerEssence begins with an in-depth consultation to understand your specific pain points and health history. This allows our Massage Therapist Chapel Hill to tailor a treatment plan that targets your unique needs. Therapeutic Massage Therapy includes a variety of techniques such as deep tissue massage, which works by applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.

This process helps to break down scar tissue and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation. Whether you're recovering from an injury or dealing with chronic stress, our therapies are designed to address your specific issues and promote a holistic recovery.

Efficiency and Effectiveness: Our therapies are highly effective in managing pain, enhancing mobility, and improving your quality of life, utilizing innovative Therapeutic Massage Therapy techniques.


Therapeutic Massage Therapy not only relieves pain but also enhances your overall health by reducing stress, improving circulation, and promoting deep relaxation. This comprehensive approach addresses both immediate pain relief and long-term health benefits, ensuring you receive the most effective treatment possible.
