My name is Wynne Minkes. For many years and with great pleasure I have been working at Koan Float (2004). Our team of masseurs and receptionists all work together with love and pleasure. And our guests feel that too!
How I became a masseuse? I heard about the HOLOS Academy for massage therapy, went to an open day and walked out skipping and dancing; feeling that happy because of HOLOS’ program and atmosphere! And this enthusiasm for massages has always remained.
Each massage evolves from the guest’s wishes and from what I feel. Massages are a wonderful means to become aware of (emotional) tensions we unconsciously store in our body. I invite my guest to breathe consciously into the tension area. The massage and the breathing result in the release of tension, and emotions or insight can surface as a result. The blood circulation drains the toxics from the muscle tissue and energy can flow again. Many people feel most tension in the neck and shoulders. Therefore, I take my time to massage this area thoroughly.
Apart from relaxation massages, I do deep tissue massage (including the deeper muscles, trigger points and myofascial tissue). Or perhaps you prefer a gentle energetic massage. I also love doing pregnancy massages: Koan Float has a wonderful table with a cavity for the swollen belly! And my personal favorite: the foot reflexology treatment. Confrontation, release, relaxation: it is all in our feet!
Before I became a masseuse, I worked as an archaeologist in Peru. But the many hours spent behind the computer gave me neck- and shoulder aches, plus an empty, isolated feeling. In Peru I became increasingly intrigued by the traditional, energetic healing tradition. An initiation in this tradition, in which I could feel the energy of the earth, wind, sun and especially the water flow through my body, resulted in my change of profession. After HOLOS (2003) I continued with training as energetic therapist at Mirre (2005) and the foot reflexology at Sonnevelt (2007), plus various workshops. Apart from my massage work, I produce education materials on cultural heritage topics.
