Ayurvedic Massage

With Amanda Dries,  Victoria (Tory) Hyndman,  Eva Ugolini,  Wendy Wanner,  Ombretta Dettori

Amsterdam & Den Haag

Ayurveda, a Sanskrit word that means “the science of life and longevity”. It is the art of daily living in harmony with the laws of nature and the oldest healing system in the world; a profound science of living that encompasses the whole of life and relates the life of the individual to the life of the universe. It is a holistic system of healing in the truest sense.   Body, mind and consciousness are in constant interaction and relationship with other people and environment. In working to create health, Ayurveda takes into consideration these different levels of life and their interconnectedness.

Kum Nye (Tibetan massage)

With Mariette de Kroon

Amsterdam & Den Haag

Kum Nye Tibetan massage has a very long tradition in the Tibetan culture. This massage has a special benefit for people who practice meditation, for those who work very hard, and for people who practice any kind of body training. (Kum means subtle body and Nye means to kneed.)   Kum Nye helps to relax our muscles and release tension and tightness in the body. When there is less tension, there are fewer blockages and our energy flows much better. This enables the energy and blood to circulate very well, as well as our essence. As a result, we have more power and do not become tired easily. Then we can handle the challenges of our life with ease and we will also find that we can rest more easily as well.

Thai yoga massage

With Agnes Vissering,  Malai Berg,  Sanne Groenendaal

Amsterdam & Den Haag

Thai Yoga Massage is a very old and unique form of massage based on traditional Thai medicine, combined with influences from Indian Yoga and Chinese acupressure. A treatment consists of a dynamic, rhythmic massage, during which pressure will be given with hands and feet on the energy lines of the body. During this full body massage a number of deep, yoga-based stretches will be applied. Additionally, the therapist will work on specific acupressure points.  The combination of stretching and acupressure techniques brings deep relaxation, removes blockages and allows your energy to flow freely. It relieves muscle tension, improves suppleness of the joints, increases flexibility and activates the blood circulation.

Shiatsu massage

With Mariette de Kroon,  Hellen Drooger,  Nedra van de Reep

Amsterdam & Den Haag

Shiatsu literally means ‘finger pressure’. Shiatsu is a Japanese form of manual therapy, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Within this system, physical or emotional disturbances are the result of an imbalance in the natural flow of vital energy (Qi). This energy circulates the body through energy channels or meridians, which are connected to the internal organs and emotional functions.   By applying pressure on specific points, we influence the energy channels, to remove blockages and strengthen energy where it has weakened. Shiatsu aims to harmonize the flow of energy and to restore the body’s self-healing abilities. It relaxes the muscles, helps detoxification, reduces stress and improves blood circulation.

Rebalancing Massage

With Mieke Meesen

Den Haag

Relaxation massage with Rebalancing techniques Rebalancing originated in the seventies and combines techniques such as Rolfing (deep tissue massage) Feldenkrais (awareness in motion), Träger and bio-energetics.The vision of Rebalancing is that the quality of the massage is not only about the technical skills. The quality is very much depending on the degree of empathy of the masseur, Mieke in this case.    In addition, Mieke works as a Rebalancer from a meditative state and her attention is fully focused on you. Through touch the peace and space are transferred to your body, which has an effect on you as a receiver. Because of her background, knowledge and insight, Mieke will be completely in contact with you and how you are doing during the session. This is what is most relaxing; an accepting touch, a feeling that you are completely right as you are.

Foot Reflex Massage

With Mieke Meesen,  Nedra van de Reep

Den Haag

Foot reflex massage Foot reflex massage was already applied thousands years ago in India, Egypt and by certain Indian tribes. This type of massage works preventively and therapeutically for physical and emotional complaints. The massage is very effective and also works quite relaxing.    Pressure is exerted on the reflex zones underneath the feet to generate reactions in the corresponding body parts they are linked to. Blockages in the body (disturbances in the energy flow) that might cause complaints can be lifted by massaging the feet. Not only waste products in the body are removed, also the emotions and mental stresses are processed and released.
