A passion since my childhood
Massages started as a hobby when I was a child.
At first, my sole purpose was to give a nice and relaxing moment to my friends and family.
Growing up, I realized that massages could mean so much more: they could also have healing benefits when applied with the relevant background knowledge and executed correctly. With good insight in the human body and the right skills, a masseur can easily resolve mental and physical problems.
Having gained that knowledge, my hobby became my passion.
In 2010 I took a professional course at the IVBO in Antwerp and got my degree within 2-years’ time.
Later that year, I followed a course in sport massages to further diverse my knowledge and offer.
The urge to satisfy my clients and fulfill their needs ever more fully has always been my main motivation. Therefore I I travelled all the way to Thailand to study at TMC in Chiang Mai, the best Thai massage school in Thailand
Why did I go so far away? Because the best way to learn the secret of the Thai massage is at the source itself.
After 3 months of hard work and an incredible journey, I passed my exams and obtained a degree for Thai massages, reflexology and Thai table massages.
On top of that I have a degree to teach Thai massages and Thai yoga.
Although I currently master of a great variety of massage techniques, my journey has not ended yet. I will continue to search for opportunities to elaborate and perfect my massage skills.
As Steve Jobs once said: You have got to find what you love – do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
In the meantime, I look forward to welcome you in offering my services in the surroundings of your choice.
