How do therapeutic, deep tissue, & relaxation massage differ?

Their goals and intensity are their key differences.
 
  • Therapeutic is more general, focusing on pain relief and tense muscles. 
  • Deep tissue goes into the deeper layers of muscle and fascia for targeted, high-pressure relief.
  • Relaxation is a lighter pressure and meant to soothe and relieve stress, rather than target pain.

Is it normal to feel pain or soreness during/after massage?

A massage should feel good, but some areas might be more sensitive than others. If something is uncomfortable or painful, tell your massage therapist so they can adjust pressure. Deep tissue massages may cause some discomfort, but it should always be bearable.
It's normal to feel sore after certain types of massage.
