Rediscover your inner balance and let your light shine.
Shiatsu is a form of manual therapy, translated as finger pressure from Japanese.
Full attention and empathic touch lie at the basis of this craft. I prefer to work by slowly dosing pressure, rotating and rocking joints, and soft stretching.

Fragmented feeling and living is the cause of many disorders in our busy lives.
Acupuncture can help you to feel more as a whole, improve organ function and relieve pain and discomfort.

I chose the name Ikiru for my practice. Ikiru is the verb for ‘to live’ in Japanese. I view life as an active, conscious form of being. A dance between going with the flow and, at the same time, being firmly rooted in life.
In 2010 I started my shiatsu practice in Amsterdam. I find it special how pure and warm a shiatsu session can be. How natural it is to communicate by touch. An ancient, nourishing feeling. A few years ago, acupuncture became a new field of interest for me. I now apply Chinese and Japanese acupuncture techniques in my practice.
Staying open and receptive as a therapist are essential aspects for establishing a trusted connection with the receiver. I treat the person and not the symptoms. I often give advice and recommend additional therapy or lifestyle changes to make the treatment more successful. You and I make the changes possible by working together.
I have taught yoga classes and workshops for over fifteen years. Vijnana yoga is a very balanced form of practice. It offers space during sitting, breathing and moving for a stable mind in a resilient body.

Bij zowel lichamelijke- als zielepijn ga ik heel graag naar Marta, die mij vol liefde met shiatsu weer de energie door mijn hele lijf laat voelen stromen en me helpt de balans terug te vinden tussen mijn hoofd en mijn lichaam.
Dankzij de behandeling als een marmot geslapen en ’s ochtends nagenoeg geen rugpijn. Magic shiatsu!
Each session I am having with her is a true blessing as she knows how to listen to my body and correct blockages while facilitating meridians circulation again.
Een shiatsu behandeling van Marta is als een grote beurt bij een auto. Daarna loopt alles weer zoals het hoort. Voel je je weer thuis in je eigen lichaam. En ga je warm, zacht en happy weer naar buiten.
When I am receiving a treatment, I feel a very thorough relaxation brought by a sense of deep physical abandon and trust when Marta moves my limbs or touches some spots under my skin.
