Good to know before

  • You are advised not to eat a heavy meal or drink coffee (or use any drugs, including alcohol) before the treatment.
  • The first treatment (90 minutes) will start with a more extensive diagnosis including an interview where I will ask questions to get an idea about your specific complaints, health problem(s), questions or needs. Next to that, I will use a physical Eastern diagnosis during every treatment to get a complete picture of how to treat you.
  • Iokai Shiatsu is given traditionally on a Japanese cotton mattress (futon), lying on the floor. During the treatment, it is best to wear comfortable clothes that you can move in freely.

Good to know after

  • After the treatment, I advise you to drink a lot of water and/or herbal tea.
  • It is best to plan some time to rest and integrate to enhance the effect of the treatment. You are most welcome to take a relaxing walk in the beautiful Amstelpark around our studio after your treatment.
  • I might give you advice about your¬†lifestyle, and food and/or give specific (yoga) exercises to do at home to integrate the treatment and support yourself further.

Follow-up

The frequency of the treatments is related to your condition, the nature and process of your complaints and will be determined in consultation. A single treatment can already be beneficial, yet a series of treatments can allow a deeper process and have a more enduring effect. The duration of all follow-up treatments is 75 minutes.
