August 2010.

Today I experienced the very first tears of joy... welling up slowly in my closed eyes, tears of abundance, goodness, wholeness, really for the first time in my life. Before that moment I knew only of tears of pain and sorrow. Thank you so much for this experience of opening me up. I felt so full and oceanic and safe.

Massage works by the quiet, healing power of human touch. Touch forms the most direct contact without words between one human being and the next - and it does influence the well-being not only of the skin itself, but of the whole human being. Thus massage yields a miraculous healing physical power.

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. This sense of wholeness includes all feelings and sensations in body and soul from the present and the past. During the massage both the one who gives and the one who receives is at the outer limit of the skin, being the most sensitive and largest human organ - thus at the outer limit of the physical self. At its very best the massage session forms a platform of paradise bliss in a world 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.


Being Quiet and Trusting

Giving and reciving massage takes place in inner calmness and concentration on the basis of serenity and trust.

The massage which I 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. My motivation is in the pleasure of giving and receiving.


Structure of a Session

I have learned to massage 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.

I also enjoy doing pulsings and stretchings. It is also possible to perform a quiet dance in which the person who receives massage fully accepts the limb movements and relaxation.

Within a session of a good hour a choice is made 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 I do appreciate a talk and also some 15 minutes of 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 fethery light trace on the whole body of 'energizing finishing strokes'

Thus whole session does take between an hour and a half or two hours.

I enjoy exchanging - but can also give massages. A handicap is no objection. Yet I will not treat serious medical conditions as I am not a licensed physiotherapist.

I do speak Dutch, English, German and also some French and Italian and I have studied at the Amsterdam Free University (Vrije Universiteit)

Lichaam & Ziel [Body & Soul] is my company name; I can receive you at my home or visit you in the Amsterdam area; my professional massage table can be moved by car. Clients are requested to sign a Medical Release Form.
