Mariana’s Massage

Mariana

Mariana

It was 8 years ago when Mariana took care of her grandmother who had knee implant surgery. She would put medicine on the wound and intuitively massage her leg to ease the pain. Her grandmother told her that her hands were helpful and that she should train herself to be a therapist. And so she did.

In 2012 she entered an ancient medicine school in Mexico City and started to study as a therapist. Along with studying Mexican Traditional Medicine,  she also focused on Shiatsu and Ayurveda. Four years later she had completed her formation as an Alternative Therapist including the study of other massage techniques (Swedish Massage, Thai massage, Mayan Massage and Reflexology), a degree in Herbal Medicine and another on Polarity Therapy.

She likes to give personalized therapies combining different tools and techniques to help patients to regain their physical, emotional and energetic balance.

Mariana’s therapy is good for treating muscular and postural pain, stress, insomnia, anxiety, imbalances of the nervous system, digestion problems, and it is also good for accompanying emotional processes such as light depressions. It generally includes aromatherapy, energetic therapy, herbal recommendations and exercises that you can do at home to help you continue with your healing process.

For her it is an honor and a joy to receive and treat people, she always remembers a Mayan adage that says “the one who heals, heals himself by healing others”.

Mayan Massage

Mayan Massage

From an ancient mexican culture comes this strong and medicinal massage focused on connecting the human body to the harmony of the universe.

For Mayan people, to be healthy is to be able to connect with the world that surrounds us; to the plants, the animals, the forces of nature and with other human beings.

This massage is given on the floor and starts on the belly button, by feeling it the therapist can obtain important information about the vital energy of the patient (in Mayan cosmovision the belly button represents and contains the whole universe). It goes from there to the hands and feet, passing through the extremities, aligning ligaments and tendons and also giving a general sensation of physical release.

It is good for muscular spasms, it’s energetic but also relaxing. It’s also helpful for digestion problems and throat pain. If necessary it includes cupping and intense massage in certain parts of the body.

For optimal results with this treatment, the recommendation is to receive three sessions within a week.

Reiki Amsterdam

Polarity Therapy

An Energetic Therapy developed by Dr. Randolph Stone. It is based on Ayurveda Medicine, Hermeticism and Taoism.

This is a path of energetic healing that starts with a General Equilibrium Session and follows with the physical and emotional needs of the patient. The therapist's hands are placed on points, that according to energetic maps of the body, should be connected, forming an electromagnetic circuit to make the energy flow and regulate.

It helps removing physical, emotional and mental blockages. The sessions are normally deeply relaxing and can induce a meditative state where dreams and images can be presented.

Nonviolent communication exercises, alimentary suggestions, and body exercises are part of this therapy. The idea is to help the patient to connect with a healthy flow of energy on different areas of her or his life.
