Bodies as a gateway to heart & soul
I started learning massage therapy in 2005 while I was working in politics and was looking for a deeper and more authentic way to relate and contribute. I always felt a strong call to be at service in a attentive and compassionate way, and to contribute to more consciousness, to shifting paradigms.
Learning shiatsu became a path of knowing myself, a strong gateway to more body-heart-mind-soul conciousness and to subtil energies.
The loss a dear friend in March 2003 brought me to Shiatsu, first as a support in the deep grief and life-shifting experience it brought, then as a practice, a map, that I discovered and studied with Sensei Yuchi Kawada, founder of the Yoseido Shiatsu School in Brussels.
In 2008, I learn Traditional Thai-Yoga massage, in Thailand with Itzhak Helman, master from the Sunshine Network (founded by Asokanada) assisted by Zoltan Gyorgyovics. Later, I got introduced to Dynamic Thai Massage by Mateusz Flak.
After the birth of my first child in 2011, I started exploring shiatsu as a support for pregnancy and childbirth. I organised workshops for future and new parents, to teach birth partner how to support mothers along the pregnancy, birth and post-partum, and how to massage their little one.
In 2012, I started to study Traditional Chinese Medicine and Tuina, with professor Elizabeth Martens (Centre d’Etudes Appliquées et de Recherches de la Haute Ecole Libre de Bruxelles Ilya Prigogine). Traditional Chinese Medecine sharpen my perception of energies’ flow in the body. It is one of my main diagnosis tool.
In 2014, I studied Pediatrical Tuina, the traditional Chinese massage for children (from 0 to 7 years old), with Elizabeth Martens.
Since 2017, I follow the path of the tantric yogini of Kashmir, through the teachings of Daniel Odier, Chan master, mostly trough the practice of Tandava (danced meditation) and Yoga of Touch (Kashmyirese massage). This practice have a deep echo in my experiences of touch, energy flow, movement and presence.
Working with the body for the past 14 years has been for me a gateway to more subtil energy work. As a way to understand what I was channelling during some massages, and moved by a strong call to embrace my shamanic self, I followed a shamanic training with Gertrude Croé (Brussels) and studied Theta Healing with Luna Nurit Nevo and Nicole Sulzbacher (Portugal).
Since 2017 I offer channeling sessions. My abilities are enriched by each encounter with the subtle realms. One of them is to accompany wandering or “stuck” souls to the light.
It is always a blessing for me to witness the abundance of support, love and understanding available for us when we open to our true nature.
I am deeply thankful for these connections.
In 2016, as a life-long dancer and following my own deep need to dance, I opened spaces for movement explorations, inspired by 5 rhythms, called Open Hearts Dance. In the last 2 years, my exploration are colored by Authentic Movement and Contact dance. I have been blessed to have met on my way Louise Chardon (Body-Mind Centering, Motional, Authentic Mouvement), Lora Hillel (Authentic Movement), the dancing tribe of Ser Vivo, and the work of Ohad Naharin (Gaga).
