J U – J I T S U
Long ago it started with Ju-Jitsu (Overijse 1987): on the mat, discovering the beauty of the circular, evasive movements and the unconditional respect for the other. I still admire the spiritual side of this martial art: you can only defend, never attack.
It is challenging to dose the control of the evasion according to the attack. It asks a lot of physical efforts but especially also a special mental attitude. And I loved the ‘no competition’ – mentality during my Ju-jitsu courses.
For ten years I have practiced and studied this martial art with great passion. Looking back, this sport has become a solid basis for my further attitude to life.

I read a lot of Ju-Jitsu books during my training years and made acquaintance with Shiatsu massage. It was clear to me that Shiatsu was the path I had to follow in the future. During my Shiatsu courses I discovered that Shiatsu was the perfect healing treatment when you got (unintentionally) hurt in a Ju-Jutsi training.

After years of practicing Ju-Jutsi & Shiatsu I discovered in the Shiatsu litterature Watsu. It is a form of water therapy based on a Shiatsu massage (nose above the water!) in a welness bath. During my third year of Watsu education I was very happy to follow some courses by Harold Dull, the American Watsu founder. He discovered that muscles & tissues relax better in water and so Shiatsu techniques were more effective when done in hot water. That was an unforgettable experience and a pleasant bonus to finish my Watsu education

After Watsu comes Wata (with the nose under water). Wata has a clear, extra added value on the total experience in the warm water: you are completely immersed, the water effect is “total”, without judgment and so much more intense.

Massage can give a total physical relaxation, a tantra massage goes into the depth and is an encounter with your real wishes & limits. Letting go in a honest and safe way, daring to look at yourself, feeling your real emotions and healing with your heart & body.
