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 like massage (Swedish, deep-tissue, Trager), Grinberg techniques (working with pain and fear), focusing and energy and intuitive work to support you in your process.
The Grinberg method is a structured way of learning through the body.
The method works with pain and fear, because the way we deal with them, tells us a lot about who we are. And they can be strong catalysts for transformation.
Our reaction to pain and fear is held in the body as a strong pattern (for example sucking in the belly, lifting shoulders, clenching jaws, holding breath). Throughout our lives we’ve learned to respond in a similar way to certain situations. Ways that can be limiting us in our daily lives, because we respond from something that has happened in the past. 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 and one of the most challenging things for me is to talk about what I feel. My mind is so strong that it keeps tricking me into old patterns of self-limiting beliefs.
What a relief it was for me to land onto the table of a body worker. At one touch of a finger my body was in movement. It started a shift in what I believed was my identity.
Since then, my life has never been the same. I got to experience parts of myself that had long been hidden, waiting for me to be silent and listen. And by listening I got access to my entire being.
I believe every person should be able to experience their full potential, that's why I've made it my life purpose to learn about bodywork and teach people how they can be free from living in the past.

"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!"
