Ever since she came in contact with it during her work as a producer in the electronic music business, Shiatsu has played an important role in Hellen’s life. In 2007 she started a 4-year training at the Amsterdam School for IOKAI shiatsu, with teachers such as Kazunori Sasaki and Eloise Sewell. Besides, she studied Shiatsu Massage Therapy at Qing Bai Academy, completing a 3-year course in 2013. In 2011 she was certified in Shiatsu Chair Massage at Helder Werk in Delft.
Besides giving Shiatsu treatments Hellen also offers Do-In yoga classes, having received her certificate from Do-In Nederland.
Hellen feels attracted to Shiatsu therapy because it works on the self-healing power of the body. Do-In is a complementary practice: by stretching the meridians the body automatically receives the benefits of Shiatsu therapy.
Hellen is a registered therapist at V.N.T /KAB. Most insurances will cover (part of) her shiatsu treatments, depending on your policy.
