2. What do i wear during the session?

3. What kind of benefits can I receive from your services.?
To name a few
Improved circulation, Reduced pain, Reduced fatigue and increased energy, Increased range of motion and ease of movement, Deep
relaxation of body and reduced tension associated with headaches, backaches, and other body aches from stress, everyday life, occupation or sports. Reduced swelling & back pain/sciatica
from regular pregnancy massage sessions.
4, What are the side effects of a therapeutic/deep tissue/sports massage?
My massage focus is to treat muscles that are tense, stiff, have painful knots and to find the source of the pain.. Therefore my treatments
are at a comfortable pressure to give an effective, professional massage that will reduce pain, tension, increase mobility, flexibility, and that will make you feel better. It is highly
recommended to drink lots of water after a massage to flush out waste products released from muscles & trigger points. If you don't drink enough water after the session it is possible to
tense up again & get a headache. Although trigger point therapy is an effective treatment, it may cause irritation to the tissue as a natural process from 24 - 48 hours. A cold compress is
recommended for 10 minutes every hour if sore. When releasing chronically tight muscles, capillary blood flow can possibly cause soreness similar to an intense workout for a day.
5,Is your specialty beneficial while also seeing a chiropractor or physiotherapist?
Yes! Massage therapy compliments other forms of therapy. I work with soft tissue which helps to reduce muscular pain and to breakdown muscular tension and stiffness. This is beneficial while seeing a physiotherapist or can help before seeing a chiropractor for an adjustment.
Is Pregnancy Massage safe?
Yes! I specialize in pregnancy massage in a comfortable sidelined position to target a wide variety of areas.
A massage is performed only after her first trimester.
Regular massage is helpful for deep relaxation & to reduce common pregnancy complaints.
How often should i get a massage?
Depending on muscular condition, level of pain or stress, a visit can be weekly, every 2 weeks or monthly. After the session a treatment plan can be discussed according to your need..For chronic pain a suggested short term of frequent visits may be discussed. Each treatment brings benefits. Regular massage brings greater long-term benefits.
8.. Are the treatments covered under the Dutch Insurance?
Although being a registered massage therapist from Canada, unfortunately the Dutch insurance system will not recognize foreign massage therapist
professionals as an option to qualify.
