a sacred dance
Thai Yoga Massage is a journey through your body, a sacred dance and holy communion between two people to unblock energy stagnation. The aim is to enter a meditative state where the body can start to heal itself.
our bodies are hungry for touch
Healing touch has been with me since I was young and I am happy to have found a massage practice that offers a journey through the body, a sacred dance and holy communion between two people to unblock energy stagnation.
Through gentle rocking, rhythmic pressure on certain points and yogic stretches, the body is reminded that it is free, so you can stop doing and start being instead.
This massage is working on different body layers (koshas) and the release works on an emotional, energetic and physical level. Blockages can be released and the energy restored to its natural flow.
The massage is a treatment where the body receives what it so often lacks: loving touch and movement in area’s that are stuck. Through communication with the nervous system and more subtle layers the body is invited to release old tension and pain. Telling you that it is okay to relax, that you are complete already.
Healing touch has been with me since I was young and I have found my education in haptonomy, partner yoga and thai yoga massage. I live in both my so called mother- and fatherland, South Africa and the Netherlands. And I share my slow, intuitive, still and soul nurturing touch where I am.
"To feel comfortable. To be who I am and if I still have some doubts about that the touch of your hands know that I do not have to doubt.
Thank you Tessa for the trust and warmth you gave, the ‘bedding’ where I can rest and relax, to let everything slide of me. With this as a base I experienced your massages as very intense and they have given me a lot.
The cheek, leg and belly massage was unforgettable, your hands know where to go and bring relaxation on a deep and different level, exactly there where needed. Thank you."
"Wow, what a great experience to be held and guided by Tessa in the world of Thai yoga massage with my partner. She guides you with so much attention, love and peace that you can really relax and give in to it.
She also creates connection on a deeper layer through contact practices. Because of that my partner and I got to know each other even better and we dared to let each other in more.
Do you want more contact with your partner, your body and your inner world? You are in very good hands with Tessa. "
"I really enjoyed working with Tessa. She is very passionate and attentive – unlike most Thai masseuses I have had before, she really takes the holistic and spiritual side of the practice seriously. I also felt great benefit physically after the massages."
"I have experienced the massages as a real experience. A kind of trip that you make through your body, that allows you to get in touch with what you feel and what you have to process in a soft way.
Tessa has the gift to feel what you need and adjust her massage to that, without needing words to do so. Your body is so personal and that is why it can be very vulnerable when you come across something within your body. Tessa’s touches are free of judgement, which taught me to do the same. Tessa also taught me to trust my body much more. That my body speaks the truth. A beautiful lesson!"
