Translating massage services to my needs

I've recently had some problems with my left scapula and/or trapezoid being tight as a result of a AC joint separation (grade 2, maybe borderline 3) from a while back. I was thinking of getting a massage but have no idea which is the "right" one for this type of injury. I'm thinking deep tissue, but perhaps one of the following is better? Your input is appreciated, especially if you've had the same injury and gone to get one of these massages, thanks.

1) deep tissue
2) rehab myotherapy
3) neuromuscular
Mind over matter- if you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

Re: Translating massage services to my needs

I'm not a MT, but I'd think those terms can be somewhat interchangable depending on the MT.

I would ask for a referral to a MT, ask to speak with them first.
Try to find one that's been out for at least 5 years. Sure some new ones can be great, but chances are haven't learned some other helpful techniques through CE and other seminars.
Check around to DC or PT offices that have MT. They'd tend to be more problem focused than just "feel good" massage skills.

I'd go with someone who has experience working with people who are injured over any "type" of massage.

They tend to know what may work best... and if it doesn't work they are able to switch to a different method to find something that works. Rather than just getting on where they'll just keep doing the same stuff even if its not working well.
