Deep Tissue and Sports 
What you seek:
Massage for your needs/ comfort:
People want therapists to not be afraid of their pain/ discomforts.  

Deep Tissue is easy for me.  I can work as deeply as you wish, including down to the bone. 
Education & Advanced Training:
Making sure to get rid of your pain is not a problem for me.  I can go deep, I can dig out the problem.  Trigger point (Simmons & Travell) is a common technique for me.   

There is the option to also take a bit more time and allow the tissue to let me in softer.   If the issue is deep and discomfort is not your thing, it's just a matter of a couple more sessions.
