Hi I got a deep tissue massage at a spa today and the practitioner focused a lot on my neck. At times he pressed very hard on my neck and it hurt but I thought it was all normal part of DT massage. I have had massage before but never had anyone press so hard on my neck, it made me nervous but I figured he knew what he was doing. well now that I'm home I'm starting to hurt, and I went to their website to check the guy out and it looks like he's a salon owner/hairstylist... not a massage therapist... so now I'm really scared!!! What is normal for a deep tissue massage on the neck area????
