CRAFTED BODY THERAPIES

I am a naturopath, a certified Esalen® therapist, an advanced Theta Healer practicioner and a choreographer. I use my dance skills to give crafted body therapies. Mixed with Deep Body Work, Theta Healing and Bach Flowers my Esalen® massage is both a powerful healing practice and a form of art.

ESALEN® MASSAGE
A 2 hours session to fully experience the powerful effects of the Esalen® Massage: long flowing strokes over the whole body that feel like a dance and help to release stress, leaving the receiver feeling whole, integrated and deeply relaxed, in a natural state of well-being.

what is Esalen® massage?
The Esalen® Massage is best described as the interface and integration of form, energy, structure and soul. With its nurturing contact, integrating strokes and detailed attention to the whole body, an Esalen® Massage provides a state of deep relaxation and healing. As Esalen® practitioner I am dedicated to connecting deeply with each client.
I combine a full-hearted presence with long, integrating strokes and slow, deep muscle work. This combination releases stress and contractures and stills the mind, leaving the client feeling integrated and deeply relaxed. During the session I add Bach Flowers Therapy and Theate Healing work accordingly to the needs of the client. Aromatherapy, heat therapy (hot packs and hot stones) and Magnesium therapy are extra elements that ensure a wonderful physical relaxation in a highly personalized way.

What is it for?
Esalen® is great to restore a deep sense of calm, create intimacy and renew a sense of comfort into the body. It is perfect to support a transitory moment in life (emotional and physical stress, dieting, dealing with addictions...) and as a way to nurture and sustain a general well-being. Mixed with Deep Body Work it is perfect to release old contractions. Combined with Bach Flowers Therapy and Theta Healing it is an emotional and spiritual aid to become whole and in deep connection with the inner self.

What to expect during the session
The best way to receive an Esalen® session is to be fully undressed. The client is properly draped with a Balinese Sarong at all time and sexual areas of the body are never part of the treatment. It is also possible to wear a disposable underwear that is available in the studio. During the session it is sometimes possible to experience an emotional release. Prior to the session, you will have the time to articulate your needs and ask any questions you might have. You will be able to undress and prepare in your own privacy and, after the session, you will be given some time alone to rest and resonate with the effects of the therapy. After that, you can engage in a verbal exchange with me or resonate in silence and exit the studio in full relaxation mode.


DEEP BODY WORK
This 90 minutes session mixes Deep Body work, Deep Tissue techniques and stretches that target the muscular tension areas. The treatment involves heat therapy with hot stones and hot pack, magnesium oil and Swiss lotions with specific herbal ingredients that alleviate pain and stimulates muscle tissue healing and blood circulation. The massage sequence focuses on the needs and tension points of the client. It is a full body treatment that promises the client to leave the studio with a sense of relief.


BACH FLOWERS THERAPY
The Bach Flowers remedies have the ability to affect our emotions positively. The different flowers can help us in the removal of emotional pain and suffering which, over time, harm our health and impair our healing.

I use a kinesiology test system to find out which Bach's Remedies your body needs. The Bach Flower Therapy is a subtle and yet very powerful technique. A mix of remedy should be taken for about 28 days. It is advisable to work with the Bach Remedies for at least 3 months for a deep and long lasting transformative effect.

LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF

My name is Giulio, I am an Italian healing artist and choreographer based in Amsterdam. My interest in the body with its healing and artistic potential started very early in my life. At the age of 10 I started to develop a severe scoliosis. Since then I started to practice therapeutic techniques and dance to avoid an extreme surgical procedure. With the pass of time dance and therapy have become not only a need but also my biggest passions. I have explored and experienced several dance techniques, Yoga, studied Naturopathy and Theta Healing. In the last 15 years I have been active as choreographer using therapeutic processes as a way to create dance theatre works. Several of my creations have encountered the enthusiasm of public and art critic as they manage to touch and move a broad audience.
I have followed diploma courses in Naturopathy, Bach Flowers therapy, Theta Healing, Classic massage, Dance and choreography and in 2019 I have graduated from a special 175hrs Esalen® program taught in Bali by Esalen Institute faculty member Ellen Watson. Esalen® is still not well-known in Europe and I am very happy to help spreading this fantastic therapeutic approach that addresses the body in a truly holistic way.

Within the Esalen® healing art I found the right dimension where all my skills and knowledge as a movement artist and naturopath merge together. My natural empathy and my experience in the moving arts are the special elements that allow me to offer a personalized session to each client. I believe that the body has great potentials for healing, developing and supporting our paths in life. I love to support clients in unlocking those potentials and finding strength and a deep sense of connections within themselves. My work aims at connecting and strengthening a sense of identity and comfort within the body and supporting the process in personal life challenges, whether they are physical or emotional. I strongly believe in the power of touch and contact and I am always extremely rewarded by witnessing the transformative effects on the clients.
My Esalen® sessions are often perceived like being taken into a dance where the client is discovering a high sense of pleasure and comfort. The connection with different people on such vulnerable and intimate level nurtures both my therapeutic skills and dance creative process.

In my studio I like to offer large slots of time to client and let them experience my own interpretation of the Esalen® healing art fused with Deep Pressure Body work, Aromatherapy, Bach Flowers Remedies and heat therapy. These techiniques help me to focus on connecting with the nervous system of the client to facilitate a deep and pleasurable relaxation while allowing for a muscular release.
