About me

Mijn visie voor mijn praktijk:                                   Het tegengaan van onnodig gebrek aan de noodzakelijke levensbehoeften: aanraking, ontspanning en oprechte aandacht. Waarom zou iemand in Nederland – of in de wereld – hier een tekort aan hebben? Welzijn is een mensenrecht en het zou voor iedereen toegankelijk moeten zijn.

I am Carollyne and it is my quality – and great passion – to connect people with themselves and thereby make them feel more comfortable. One of the ways I do this is through massage treatments. In my life I have learned in many different ways to touch and to be touched. I have worked in healthcare for years, I have practiced contact sports for years (Eastern martial arts) and I have studied many forms of massage and touch therapies. With these ingredients and my “warm hands” I daily support my clients, but also friends and family. My parents used to say to me “You have magical hands, you have to do something with that.” I have listened to them and fully enjoy my profession, my clients and my practice.

In 2011 I officially started my own massage practice. In 2014 my cuddle practice was added in.

I regularly attend additional training in the form of courses and workshops, so that I continue to develop within my field. Through intervision and individual coaching sessions I work on my own personal growth and development.

In order to be able to practice my profession properly, I think it is necessary to continue to broaden and deepen my knowledge. Fortunately, I have a great interest to continue learning. With great pleasure I learn new methods to support my clients in the best possible way with their ailments, or to just let them enjoy relaxation.
