Home ยป Complaints


man with back problems

Do you suffer from stiff muscles, your back, your shoulders or your neck? Or do you want to prevent an injury? All good reasons to go to the massage therapist. Because the masseur helps you to deal with these complaints.

The list of complaints I mentioned above is really not complete. If you would like to know what other conditions you can address with massage read on.

How to get these complaints

Complaints don’t just happen. They tell a story. Especially if there are things happening or have happened in your life that you haven’t been able to deal with very well at the time. Think for example of violent emotional events, there was too little support or help or you had to continue to survive. These experiences, along with their associated emotions, will take root somewhere in your body, brain or nervous system. The body can then no longer process the tension in a natural way. Your body is overloaded now. This can cause pain and/or stress.

What does a therapeutic or complaint-oriented massage do?

I not only massage the complaint area but also the areas around it. I look beyond the problem area. The parts of the body are in fact connected to each other and support each other.

Massage techniques not only affect the muscles but also the skin around them. By doing so, they remove blockages in the body. The body’s natural systems can now function normally again. Think of systems like the lymph, the blood circulation, the immune system, etc.

Which complaints can be treated with massage

Massage Practice Koetsier can help you to reduce or even solve various complaints. Below is a list of conditions that you can have treated:

When is treatment not possible

Getting a good massage is wonderful and has many positive effects on your body. If you are completely healthy, getting a good massage is also healthy for you. It stimulates your circulation and gives you a moment of rest and relaxation. However, there are situations where treatment of your complaint is not possible or even good for your body.

These situations are:

  • Fever
  • Too much pain
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Infectious skin diseases over the entire body (herpes, shingles)
  • In case of (excessive) use of drugs, alcohol, antibiotics, blood thinners
  • Very poor general health
  • Cancer/Tumors
  • General infectious diseases
  • Serious circulatory diseases (thrombosis, arteritis)

Check with the masseur in case you don’t know if massage is possible now.

Prevention is better than cure

Most people only come to the masseur when they have complaints. But that’s just too bad. Because a relaxed body can have more tension both mentally and physically. That’s why I advise you to take a preventive massage once in a while, to stay in good shape.

How long does it take to treat the complaints

Together with the client I make a treatment plan that is tailored to the complaints and wishes of the client. Usually you will see a clear improvement after one or two treatments.

If you have any questions, just give us a call and we will discuss what we can do about your condition.
