A deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that Dr. Wes Wooden and Dr. Wheeler are proud to offer at Health Solutions Chiropractic. It is a technique that involves using firm pressure and slow strokes to reach the deeper layers of the muscle and fascia, which is the connective tissue surrounding the muscles. This type of massage can be used for chronic aches and pains and it can help with contracted areas of the body, like the neck, back, legs and shoulders.

This massage is similar to a Swedish massage, but it applies even more pressure and breaks down scar tissue as well as adhesions or “knots” in the body. This is helpful because the knots tend to disrupt circulation in the body and cause pain, limited range of motion and inflammation. A deep tissue massage can also help injured muscles. This is because it can encourage the movement of toxins in the area and it can help stretch twisted or tight muscle mass. This can help promote healing. The massage can also relax muscles, relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries, relieve stress and more.

In addition, a deep tissue massage is a great treatment option for the following conditions:

-Limited range of motion

-Low back pain

-Repetitive strain injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome

-Postural problems

-Muscle tension

-Osteoarthritis pain


-Sports concerns

-Tennis elbow


-Piriformis syndrome

-Upper back or neck pain
