Bodies as a gateway to heart & soul
I always felt a strong call to be at service in an attentive and compassionate way, to contribute to more consciousness, to shifting paradigms.
I started learning therapeutical massage in 2005 while working in politics in Brussels. I was looking for a closer and more authentic way to relate and contribute. 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 for 4 years with Sensei Yuchi Kawada, founder of the Yoseido Shiatsu School in Brussels.
Learning shiatsu became a path of self-knowledge, a strong gateway to more body-heart-mind-soul consciousness and to subtle energies.
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 partners how to support mothers along the pregnancy, birth and post-partum, and how to massage their little one. I also initiated a few midwives to shiastu for birth.
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 the energetical flows 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 tantric yogini of Kashmir’s trail, through the teachings of Daniel Odier, Chan master, mostly trough the practice of Tandava (danced meditation) and Yoga of Touch (Kashmiri massage). This practice echoes in my experience of touch, energy flow, movement and presence.
Working with the body and going through birth initiation opened more and more my receptivity to subtle energies. I had memories of clair-voyance, unity and trance from childhood but as a young adult, I had forgotten most of my abilities.
Shiatsu, meditation and childbirth, opened up my channels again.
To understand what I was channeling during some bodywork sessions, and moved by a strong call to embrace my shamanic-self, I followed a shamanic training with Gertrude Croé (Brussels) in 2016 and studied Theta Healing with Luna Nurit Nevo and Nicole Sulzbacher (Portugal).
In 2017, I started offering channeling sessions.
My abilities are enriched by each encounter with the subtle realms. One of them is to accompany wandering souls to the Light, to clean auras and communicate with the deceased.
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.
My explorations are colored by the many inspirations and roots I grew through my journey, among which Authentic Movement, Contact improvisation and Butoh (by its strong animist , shamanic and poetic nature), which are ever-lasting sources of bliss and research for me.
I have been blessed to have met on my way Louise Chardon (Body-Mind Centering, Motional, Authentic Movement), Lora Hillel (Authentic Movement, Continuum), the dancing tribe of Ser Vivo, the work of Ohad Naharin (Gaga), and amazing Butoh teachers such as Yael Karavan and Minako Seki.
I am currently enrolled in a 2,5 years teacher training with Open Floor International.
