This popular massage form is a powerful massage to bring the body back into balance. A slow and deep massage technique with a lot of attention to the muscles will improve the energy flow. This massage is therefore very suitable for people with long-term accumulated tension in body and mind.
Massage is not a luxury it is a way to a happier and healthier life
During the massage we use essential oils. Deep tissue massage and aromatherapy is a very nice combination with the aim of bringing the body in an optimal state of relaxation and balance in a natural way. The flower of life uses Young Living essential oils, which are 100% pure with a therapeutic effect.
A deep tissue massage consists of deep, slow massage techniques that improve the ‘energy flow’ in our body. In a powerful way we bring balance to the body. All stress and tension will flow out of your body during the massage and you will fully relax, both physically and mentally. The massage form is therefore extremely suitable for people with long-term accumulated tension in both body and mind. The massage mainly focuses on the connective tissue around the muscles. Connective tissue is stretchy tissue that connects all parts of your body like glue. To keep the body flexible, massage is important, it creates space for your muscles. If you sit at the computer in the same position all day, the connective tissue between the muscles will get stuck more easily. With a massage you loosen the connective tissue so that you can move more smoothly. In addition, this massage stimulates blood circulation and stops skin aging. A deep tissue massage ensures that your skin remains smoother and firm.

What can you expect during a deep tissue massage? During the massage we make slow, powerful and deep movements. We do this with the fingers, thumbs, (soft) fists or the forearm and elbow. The massage starts fairly quietly and gradually builds up to more pressure. You can experience the firm pressure directly and intensely. You will notice during the massage that some places in the body are more sensitive or even painful, causing your muscles to tighten. The masseur lets you relax as much as possible so that the body quickly becomes smoother and softer. After the massage you will notice that your body feels smoother and that you are more relaxed.
Always drink plenty of water after the massage because accumulated waste products are released during a deep tissue massage. By drinking enough water, these waste products can be properly removed and leave the body.

A deep tissue massage offers many health benefits. When your muscles are constantly under tension and cramping, it blocks blood circulation and oxygen locally in the body. A deep tissue massage helps to dissolve these blockages in the body. Tension and inflammation in the body can cause scar tissue and adhesions in the connective tissue. The purpose of this massage is to loosen the connective tissue again. This massage can also contribute to the recovery of, for example, sports injuries. But this massage is also recommended for people with chronic stress, such as headaches, tense muscles, sore shoulders and a stiff neck. A deep tissue massage can provide great relief from these complaints.
In addition, you can use a massage oil with essential ingredients that cares for and relaxes the muscles. This way you prevent injuries. For more information about the use of these oils, you can email us. We are happy to tell you more about it.
