If you become aware of your body,
you allow yourself access
to your entire being.
The word holistic comes from the Greek word 'holos', meaning 'entire' or 'all'.
Which means we see you as a whole, a complete system, rather than individual parts. You don't have a body, you are a body.
In a holistic bodywork session the aim is to create more body awareness, (re)connect with all the aspects that make you you; physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically.
I may use a variety of tools from somatic bodywork, Grinberg techniques (working with pain and fear), focusing, energy and intuitive work to support you in your process.
The Grinberg method is a structured way of learning through the body.
Throughout our lives we’ve learned to respond in a similar way to triggering situations. Ways that can be limiting us in our daily lives, because we respond from something that has happened in the past. Our reaction to these situations is held in the body as a strong pattern (for example sucking in the belly, lifting shoulders, clenching jaws, holding breath).
During a session I make you aware of these old patterns and teach you how to break them by offering other options.
To define what needs to be learned, the method combines your past experience with your present condition and wishes for the future.
The aim of the process is to attain greater health, get insight in strong habitual and unconscious patterns, teach you how to regulate self-limiting states and with this, experience more freedom in the here and now.
De praktijk ligt in het hartje centrum van Amsterdam.
Omdat er geen aparte wachtruimte is in de praktijkruimte is, liever niet meer dan 5 minuten van te voren aanwezig zijn.
Mocht je niet op de fiets kunnen komen, dan raad ik je aan het OV te nemen. In de binnenstad van Amsterdam worden nu veel werkzaamheden verricht. Dat betekent dat een hoop wegen ontoegankelijk zijn voor auto’s en de parkeermogelijkheden nog beperkter zijn dan normaal.
De praktijk is op loopafstand van Amsterdam Centraal Station.
My name is Floor.
One of the most challenging things for me was to talk about what I feel. My mind can be so strong, that it can trick me into old patterns of self-limiting beliefs.
Undergoing professional bodywork for the first time, ignited a perspective shift in my believed identity.

"You can book sessions with a therapist and try to understand everything with your brain, or you book a session with Floor and let your body tell the story that needs to be heard and felt. I'm absolutely amazed, mindblowing!"
