What is Biodynamic Massage?

Biodynamic Massage addresses cell memory and the emotional holding in the body. It can be used to mobilise energy, soften psychosomatic energy blocks, and facilitate the emergence of unconscious feelings and memories.

It may also assist clients in strengthening their emotional boundaries, if these have been disturbed during their upbringing.

While facilitating an increase of peoples wellbeing and awareness of the body, Biodynamic Massage is often used to discharge the built-up stress many people accumulate by not expressing feelings adequately, or by not winding down and resting after emotionally challenging activities.

Biodynamic Massage aims at distributing stagnant physio-emotional energy and at discharging stress remnants by using gentle and responsive ways of touching.


Related to the word remedy, Remedial Massage is a scientific, yet holistic method of manipulating the soft tissues of the body to have a specific effect and help restore healthy function.

Remedial Massage works by stimulating the flow of blood to the tissues, which allows toxins that have built up in the muscles, due to overuse or injury, to be removed, thus speeding up the repair process. It also improves joint mobility and flexibility through the release of specific muscle groups that may be impinging normal range of motion.

Remedial Massage can be helpful in treating specific areas of muscle tension caused by stress or injury. Furthermore, Remedial Massage can be used for relaxation and general wellbeing. It has both short and long-term effects on the body.


Zen Shiatsu is a form of physical manipulation that was developed in Japan in the 20th Century. The pressure has to be gentle but firm, supportive, and penetrative while being very relaxing.

In this relaxed state, the body's own healing powers are activated. Zen Shiatsu is based on a full Oriental Medical System which, like Acupuncture, explains the body in terms of a network of meridians through which flows a natural energy called ki. A Zen Shiatsu treatment is aiming at your physical as well as emotional wellbeing.

Zen Shiatsu is particularly effective for chronic ailments

  • headaches
  • back pain
  • menstruation
