inner work
for radiant health

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.
