This is a complicated discussion. A good deep tissue massage can border on discomfort when an area that is particularly tight is focused on. This does not mean that it should hurt. Oftentimes, it is even enjoyable. If an area is painful when being worked on, please inform your therapist as this can be a sign of an underlying injury that your therapist needs to know about. Your therapist can always modify their technique to match your comfort level.
