Deep Tissue Massage & Trigger Point Therapy
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy (also referred to as myofascial release) is a clinically focused treatment, working on releasing the deeper myofascial restrictions of the deeper muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Deep Tissue Massage allows the therapist to locate and address dysfunction within the Musculoskeletal system.
Dysfunction within this system can be caused by a range of factors; such as muscular injury, incorrect postural habits, muscle overload, stress and more.
When these problems are present, there are often adhesions (knots - tight bands of painful and rigid tissue) in the muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Adhesions/knots can cause pain and inflammation, limit movement, block circulation and aggravate the surrounding muscular systems.
Deep Tissue Massage focuses on relieving pain and restoring normal movement, by breaking down these knots using Trigger Point Therapy, allowing the muscle to return to normal function.
I use advanced massage techniques that are very slow and deep strokes, with direct pressure or friction applied on the muscles. If restricted, knotty or painful areas are detected, then Trigger Point Therapy can be used to release those areas, relieving pain and tension.
Deep Tissue Massage works most effectively when experienced as a course of treatments.
I will take you through a consultation and a posture assessment to help me identify specific areas that are causing pain and tension and that require treatment.
Deep Tissue Massage can be beneficial for a wide range of issues, including:
Trapped nerves (eg. Sciatica, Piriformis Syndrome)
Shoulder and neck pain
Repetitive strain injury (eg. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
Muscle tension (eg. glutes, hamstrings, IT band, legs, upper back)
Injury recovery (eg. whiplash)
Tennis Elbow, Frozen Shoulder, Runners Knee etc.
Plus much more!
During this treatment, considerable amount of pressure is used, which in some cases may cause some discomfort; however, I will always work within your comfort zone. The treatment will be individually tailored to suit your needs.

Treatments can take place either in a lovely relaxing treatment room in my home in Amstelveen, or in the comfort of your own home (I will travel to your home with my massage table, oils, massage wax and towels). There is an additional charge for the taxi for treatments in your own home.
