DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
A Deep tissue massage is a deep and powerful massage which is more focused on the connective tissue around the muscles and not just on the muscles themselves (partly the massage is also without oil and little oil). Deep tissue massage is therefore also good for the skin, in addition, tension and stress are reduced.
You could compare the Deep Tissue massage with a Sports massage, but at a slower pace.
When do you choose for a Deep Tissue massage
This massage is aimed at improving (chronic) pain complaints. The massage is intensive and firm, but also relaxing. The massage technique counteracts cramped muscles, for example with tension complaints of the neck, shoulders and back.
By paying careful attention to tense points, the knots in your body can dissolve. When muscle tension decreases, the energy flow in your body can immediately restore. This makes you feel more in balance.

soften connective tissue
