Relaxation therapy is a form of therapy primarily focused on establishing more and complete relaxation in the body-mind.
- you feel that (almost) everything you do takes too much effort,
- you are exhausted
- you sleep badly
- you suffer from stress
- you suffer from chronic (muscle) tension
- you have a burnout
Then…. it is not a luxury, but really necessary to pay some attention to yourself! Because you don’t have to go through life like this, it can be different!
Relaxation Therapy & Stress Management
Relaxation therapy helps through stress management: during our talks we’ll clarify what the major stress factors in your life are and how to balance them. Aside from that, during some sessions, you will be guided to experience complete relaxation of body and mind through various body-awareness exercises like focusing, progressive and autogenic relaxation training, sometimes combined with breathing techniques.
Relaxation training helps you to relax and sink into yourself. You will become increasingly aware of the different sensations in your body. You will be able to recognize and distinguish tension from relaxation and will be able to have an experience of loosening and releasing certain emotions that over time may have moved in, unpacked and started living in your body as emotional blockages. This way, through relaxation therapy, the experience of your body-mind becomes lighter, easier to bear and you will benefit from this in various areas of your life.

Relaxation therapy can of course be done in single sessions, but I recommend a minimum 6- session relaxation individual program for some notable result. (See more information below)
Individual relaxation therapy and/or group sessions
Individual Relaxation therapy will meet your needs as an individual. By getting to know each other in an individual setting, I can adjust the sessions according to your needs. We’ll look at the stress factors and symptoms that you face as an individual: every person is different and experiences stress differently. That way, the sessions can be most effective for you to grow in relaxation.
Group sessions can be, if you wish, a very nice addition to individual therapy: you will practice experiencing direct and complete relaxation, stress management or emotional release in a group setting. These classes, workshops and courses are very affordable and fun. The support of the group energy will help you to enter deeper relaxation. In addition to that, you might even meet some nice like-minded people on the same path as you during these sessions.
Option: Massage as a part of Relaxation Therapy
When you start a path of Relaxation Therapy, some massage sessions can be included in the program if you wish. As part of the Relaxation program, the Relaxation massage offers a chance to get in closer touch with your body. The mind might be busy at the beginning of the massage, but soon you will notice how it disappears to the background and a more conscious experience of the here and now will take place. During these gentle massage sessions, emphasis is being placed on relaxation and body-awareness. Some techniques of Holistic Pulsing and Haptonomy (A Dutch therapy which involves conscious touch/contact) will be used during these sessions.
During a 6-week program* we work on relaxation through coaching sessions, relaxation exercises and relaxation massage:
|session 1||session 2||session 3||session 4||session 5||session 6|
|intake & stress management
|stress management & coaching
* This is an example. Program may be changed according to your needs. This will be discussed during the intake session.
