Bio Niels ->
Hi I am Niels Brouwer accredited massage therapist and I am co-owner of Vitaal-welzijn. Together with Marjolein Koeman psychologist we work together on the mental and physical health of people.
After a 20-year career working as a service technician in testing, inspecting and certifying lifting equipment, I found myself sitting at home in 2018 with burnout and depression symptoms.
During this period, I started asking myself what I wanted and what I definitely did not want to do with life anymore.
I found that movement helped me with the release of thoughts and that it also helped me regain control of myself.
Then I started exploring what else I could do. I trained as a fitness instructor and did an internship at the VU sports center. There I found out that fitness instructor was not my thing.
But I was triggered by the body and movement. That's how I came to take a course in sports massage. My interest was piqued and there arose the need to learn more about massage.
To this day, I have not stopped learning and I am in the process of getting my 4-year college degree in massage therapy. I am almost there and because of this diploma, my massage therapy will soon be partially reimbursed.
Who is Niels:
I am a calm and patient person who likes to be ready to help another person. Because I found out later in life that I am interested in learning more, I am extra driven. With this drive and desire to learn I am working toward becoming a top massage therapist.
And I am a true HSP. After much self-examination, reading about HSP and writing my thesis on HSP, I have now embraced this "curse," as I used to see it. I do a lot by my gut and that works very well for me.
Because I am now more in touch with myself and feel what is good for me, I am better able to help others. The position of massage therapist is right up my alley!
Besides work, I love taking vacations by car or train. You can find me regularly at the gym to keep connected to my body. I love Italian and Spanish food. Furthermore, I love to keep developing and continuing my education. This way I stay up to date in the field of massage and more. Furthermore, I love massages in various styles to build in a restful moment in the day.
Why should you choose me?
There are so many massage therapists offering their services that even I myself sometimes don't know where to go.
Are you looking for a massage therapist who has a thorough education and who looks beyond the body? Do you have a complaint or do you come for a nice moment of relaxation? With me you get a massage that is completely adapted to your body. No set or routine or a pre-rehearsed massage. Everything is adapted to your needs and body. Meanwhile, many clients come back to my practice for this form of massage.
Will I see you soon?
