high intensity trigger point therapy for relief for neck pain, sciatica, headaches, tight & painful shoulders, sports hernia, anxiety.

Past Tense Massage was established in 1998, at what is now called the Outlets at Orange. It was known by many as a place to get worked on in short massage sessions before and after movies in a fun, barber type setting. Over the course of 17 years, its clientele has changed from walk through, “impulse buy” type of clients to a loyal following, who seek our longer massage sessions where we specialize in a deep HITT massage.

Conventional massage, which would include any massage that could be offered in a chain of massage venues, would be ideal for general relaxation, however is not ideal for relief of deep muscle tension. The reason for this is because the conventional “deep tissue massage” works on the surface tension of the muscle and does not specifically target tension that is inches deep into the body.

HITT can be performed in all areas of the body. The most common areas are the neck and shoulders for headaches, glutes and hamstrings for sciatic nerve issues. It can also be performed on the arms, forearms and hands for carpal tunnel, and the calves and feet for twisted ankles or plantar fasciitis. There is no area that cannot benefit from.

I had serious hamstring cramps after riding for 50 miles. The soreness lasted for more than a week. I sat in my massage chair several times and then used the foam roller. The soreness persisted. Tanaka worked on all the affected muscles for about 3/4 hr. He applied his unique deep tissue massage and, while it was quite painful, when he was done, I felt an amazing difference.
