Welcome to Tough Love Massage!
Welcome to Holliston's very own Deep Tissue Specialists.  Deep Tissue Massage is designed for men and women who prefer a strong therapist.  Our goal is to focus on working to aid the release of tension and pain. Whether you are suffering from low back pain, neck and shoulder tension, chronic pain, sports related injuries or any other symptoms of discomfort, we would love the opportunity to help you on your path to great health.

Experts estimate that upwards to 90% of disease is stress related.  And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally than high stress.  While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may not be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.
