About me

Movement, dance and bodywork have always been integral ways for me to relax and unwind. I took my first shiatsu classes when I was at university, and since then, it’s been a part of my life.

After working in the development cooperation sector for several years, I decided to quit my old office job in 2013 and become a full-time practitioner. That was one of the best decisions in my life! In June 2013 I joined a group practice.

It’s wonderful to experience how often shiatsu is able to rebalance body and soul and increase the flow of our energies. Working with shiatsu gives me inner peace, presence, and lots of new impulses that I’m always happy to pass on.

In 2013, I began with my three-year training as a Grinberg practitioner, and since then I’ve also been giving one-on-one sessions following the Grinberg method. Learn more here.

I look forward to meeting you!
