Holistic Therapies

Holistic Bodywork

Drawing on various ancient, rich and colourful traditions, I will work together with you in an adaptive and personalised way to help and guide you on your path of healing and self-development.

Sessions can be geared towards working on specific problems like physical, psychological or psychosomatic conditions, but will always address the person (body, mind & spirit) as a whole. This holistic approach aims to restore balance to the complete (living) system, rather than focusing only on the problems or symptoms, which simply arise from these underlying blockages and systemic imbalances.

Most (but not all) of my sessions are based on the Shiatsu style of treatment, meaning the client is clothed and on a mat on the ground (see Zen Shiatsu for more details). Shiatsu (inspired) bodywork forms the core or central thread of my sessions, in which many other elements can be incorporated. Below are some of the therapies and traditions I have been trained in or draw upon in my treatments.

Zen Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a beautiful Eastern system of holistic bodywork originating from Japan and firmly rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The beauty of the ‘Zen’ style of shiatsu, lies in its directness and simplicity. It seeks to restore balance and health to the body by influencing and stabilising the flow of ‘Chi’ (also called ‘Ki’ or ‘Qi’) through general bodywork, exercises, and specific addressing of pressure points (acupressure) and the body’s main energy channels (meridians), an approach drawing on the system of Chinese acupuncture. Practiced over clothes and on the floor (on a Japanese style futon or mat) or on a massage chair, it is a very grounded form of therapy that provides an open and flexible setting of space and movement within which it becomes possible to apply many different forms of healing work, making it a great framework to combine techniques and practices from various therapeutic systems and traditions. Shiatsu provides the core substance or ‘backdrop’ for most of my bodywork sessions.

“Maurits is an accessible and pleasant practitioner who (through shiatsu) has helped me to reground my presence in my body. The stretches and attention for specific areas of tension helped me to let go and feel a greater sense of ‘space’ in my body. Immediately afterwards, I experienced a greater freedom of movement and a deep sense of relaxation. Highly recommended!”

Jorinde, (Shiatsu Bodywork)
“Maurits is a pleasant bodyworker and is blessed to have been born with massage-hands. Inspiring trust and relaxation, he is friendly and full of focused attention for his client. It is always lovely to receive a firm, full-body treatment from Maurits in the comfort of my own home. After he has come by I feel as reborn, and immediately look forward to the next time he will come.”
Leopold, (Holistic Massage)
“Maurits always creates a safe space for me to go though my process. Despite of my anxiety, Maurits’ presence and the peaceful space he creates allow me to sit with my feelings without loosing myself. He listens to everything I have to say, without judgement, and always seems to know intuitively what to do to help me. When to step in, and when to step back and give space.”
Sarah, (Various Treatments)
“When you receive a treatment from Maurits, you can be sure to enter into a most peaceful and spiritual space.

Shamanism

Shamanic healings are powerful forms of spiritual, energetic and physical healing which draw upon the forces of nature to invite profound and lasting transformation in ourselves, and in our relationship to our environment. Through connecting with spirit, the elements, animal teachings, or ingesting sacred plants, shamanic rituals lead us back to the core, our origins, and the home that most of us have lost inside ourselves.

Kambo

Kambo, the secretion of a large Amazonian tree frog, is an indigenous medicine with an old tradition of ritual use by various tribes of the Amazon rainforest. It is traditionally used to strengthen and cleanse the physical body, heal (and prevent) disease, and rid a person of negative energies. Today, Kambo is believed to have countless other health benefits and has been shown to be effective against many (modern) diseases such as depression, HIV and cancer.
