Classic Relaxation Boja
I first experienced the possibilities that massage offers when I was in China, in 1989, taking a course on Tai Chi and Qigong at the China People’s University in Beijing. At the time, I was mainly attracted by a head massage technique, a technique I still use in my massages.
Since then, I’ve incorporated many aspects of Eastern traditions in the way I work. It developed into the present structure after I studied under Robert Jaaltink, the founder of the Boja technique. What I really like about the Boja technique is that it gives the masseur plenty of room to develop a personal technique and to adapt to the needs of the client.
I’ve been working at Koan Float since 1998 and still thoroughly enjoy the peaceful ambience. Throughout the years I’ve frequently been able to make use of the float tanks and I find floating a fantastic way to deeply relax.
Paul’s speciality: Boja Massage
The Boja technique combines the classical relaxation massage with elements from Eastern traditions. This means working on the muscle system using oil, but also stimulating the meridians and pressure points. A feature of this type of massage is holding on to certain ‘knots’, which gives the body time to let go of the tension.
This combination of traditional techniques, together with a focus on the lymphatic system, clears blockages and puts the energy system back in balance. Boja Massage offers deep relaxation and can help relieve symptoms such as headache, tension in the back and shoulders, poor blood circulation and sleeplessness.
