Take a sauna in in Sauna Fenomeen - and right after, enjoy a superior massage at only 4 minute walking distance. The two masseurs Hansi and Kees will geve you a great and slow massage. You may choose one of us. Or get a 4-hands masage from Hansi & Kees. You may also come here with two persons and get two separate massages. We say 'yes' to your whole person.
Hansi was born in Indonesia and has a phenomenal technique ; Mother Nature blessed him with extra gifts in the form of energy currents.
Kees runs his massage practice just across the bridge near Sauna Fenomeen, and is specialized in massage and oriental techniques.

We believe that touch is a great gift between human beings. Massage works by means of the quiet, healing power of human touch. Touch forms the most direct contact without words between one person and the next - and it influences the wellbeing not only of the skin itself, but of the entire person. Massage has miraculous healing powers.
The one who receives massage and the one who gives massage are not just concerned with a small part of the anatomy, just an arm or a leg or a back, but they bring with them their totality as a human being. During the massage, both the one who gives and the one who receives, stand at the outer limit of the skin - the most sensitive and largest human organ - and thus at the outer limit of the physical self. At its very best, the massage session forms a platform of bliss in a world sometimes full of stress and pressure. Massage is living in quality time. The release of energies and endorphins will make you feel good for a long time. Come discover this for yourself.
Being Quiet and Trusting
Giving and receiving massage takes place in inner calmness and concentration on the basis of serenity and trust.
The massage which we give is slow ; it is called 'holistic' or 'intuitive'. It is applied with two full hands on the partner, and is aimed at relaxation and in the best of cases it may trigger - in the one who receives - an inner sensation of flow, peace, serenity and bliss. It is quite allright to enjoy and the human mind may soar as well. Our motivation is in the pleasure of giving and receiving.
Structure of the Session
Initially the body may be fully covered with a cloth made out of the finest French linen. The client is free to choose to be covered or to be naked during teh session.
We strive for a delicious touch.
After the pulsing session which lasts a few minutes we will treat one body part at the time. We enjoy massaging these body parts: in a table massage the head, neck, shoulders, back and the sides, arms and hands ; upper chest ; ribs, stomach, buttocks (if you wish), legs and last but not least, both feet.
We also enjoy doing some pulsing and stretching. It is also possible to perform a quiet dance, in which the person who receives massage fully accepts the slow limb movements and relaxation.
Within a session of a good hour a choice is made by the client of the body parts mentioned above; this selection is geared both towards the situation and the needs of the one who gives and receives. Before starting we do appreciate a short talk and perhaps some loosening the muscles and grounding the body.
At the end of the session various parts of the body have been touched with energy and care; regaining the sense of unity of the body is reached by the repeated feathery light trace on the whole body of 'energizing finishing strokes'
Thus the whole session, includig a little talk beforehand, takes about a hour and a half to almost two hours.

Psychological Bulletin, January 2004 highlights
MASSAGE THERAPIY AGAINST DEPRESSION
Psychologists at Illinois University have researched effectiveness of massage therapy. A series of visits to the masseur may reduce depression, anxiety and pain. Even single visits may help alleviating anxiety and pain and may reduce hypertension and a high heart rate.
