We Are Deep Pressure Specialists.

A Personal Note from our Founder:

Thank you for visiting our web site I hope it serves you well!

My name is Leta Woloshuk and I personally prefer a Deep Pressure Massage, I like to call it "being delightfully pushed through the table", I have seen many massage therapists and spent hundreds of dollar looking for a DEEP massage.. Time after time I was scheduled for a Deep Tissue Treatment but it never seemed to work out that way…. most of the time I was not asked if I hurt any were or wanted a few extra minutes on an area of stress or even asked how the pressure was. To tell you the truth the few time I was asked these questions the therapist must of forgot or just did not know how to release the tightness. I did not feel my muscles received all they needed, leaving no change to my tightness and restrictions. So I left disappointed, aggravated and out 65- 90 bucks (Yikes!). I must add…. the therapists I saw were great people, kind and had good intensions I’m sure!!! They just could not deliver the depth or detail my muscles needed. Being a provider of Deep Pressure Massage also known as Deep Tissue Massage and someone who enjoys it (it is one of my favorite things!) I knew that something was missing out there. I thought, “what a great idea to have a place where our clients knew they could get a true detailed deep tissue massage, experience exceptional service and a joyous environment” I decided to open The Art of Massage a Therapeutic Massage Therapy Clinic, surrounded by St. Pete Beach, Pasadena and St. Petersburg, located in Gulfport Florida. All the professional deep tissue therapist that practice at The Art of Massage receive advanced training, posses the body mechanic skills, strength, and intuitive knowledge that it requires to give a Genuine Deep Tissue Massage. I am honored to work alongside talented professionals in the field and I feel any of our clients can see any deep tissue therapist that work here and receive a detailed, quality massage as light or as deep as they like it.

So call with confidence that we will create each treatment to fit your unique needs whether you schedule a Structural Pain Relief session or a Relaxation massage.

We are here for you!
