(formerly known as teacher training)

After making a conscious choice to finish my Social Work career (mainly working in crisis settings during and after gaining a Dutch degree in 1989), I started a private practice in massage and healing in 1994. Over the years work developed along the following principles:

Discomforts are more often than not caused by being emotionally, physically and spiritually out of balance.
Body, mind and spirit form an intertwined unity: only treating the body relieves symptoms but does not touch the root of the disease; only treating the mind leaves body and spirit behind; only treating the spirit can make the individual detach him/herself from emotional and physical reality. All aspects require healing for lasting health and happiness.

This approach, in conjunction with further study, has enabled me to develop own techniques over the years, often with amazing results. It results in clients traveling from all continents for sessions. Please be aware that I frequently work with a waiting list.

Graduating from the Barbara Brennan School of Healing in Florida in 2001 was followed 6 years later by graduating from the Advanced Studies program which had replaced their Teacher Training in Brennan Healing Science. Inspired by the in depth quality of this particular healing modality I founded T E C H S: Tjitze's Energetic Cellular Healing School.

To me it feels like a huge privilege to work so closely with students and clients alike and to witness individuals' processes of graceful unfoldment time and time again.

In 2011 I self-published a book about one aspect of my work. It's available on amazon:

Findhorn Press (Scotland) & Inner Traditions (USA) have published a far more detailed publication in February 2021, called:
"ENERGETIC CELLULAR HEALING AND C..... - Treating the Emotional Imbalances at the Root of Disease"

See also on youtube:
"Sylvia Black - Life through C....." Sylvia was the first person with whom I traveled on the edge of life and death and who, well over a decade later, still lives a full, active and fulfilling life.

Below is an article, published in Findhorn's weekly magazine 'Rainbow Bridge' (2012):

From free sessions at Samye-ling


Tjitze's Energetic Cellular Healing School

Living in Findhorn from '89 to '93 I took 2 massage courses. Just for the fun of it. No serious intent.

In '93 I moved to Samye-ling in Eskdalemuir and in the farmhouse was a treatment room full of mud and dung. Facilities have much improved since then. There I gave massages for free and by donation. Just for fun no serious intent.

Response was so positive, that I decided to rent a cottage in the area, print business cards and buy a treatment couch. Finances permitted me to live for 1 year with little income. After 10 months my thought was "Oops, it ain't gonna work". An interview with the Annandale Observer changed all that. Fun remained. Intention started to shift.

During the same time a bald-headed man asked if he could join me in Carlisle on a terrace in the sun for a cup of coffee. We clicked and Dan Russell invited me to set up a clinic in his Atlas Works, then a huge filthy mess, now a thriving complementary health center in Carlisle. Fun remained. Intention got serious.

Whilst only performing massage, strange phenomena occurred spontaneously and client's health and well-being improved way beyond what could be expected. Reputation grew and people drove up to 100 miles for a session.

In Lockerbie library I found Barbara Brennan's book "Hands of Light", explaining these strange phenomena. A fortnight after finishing the book I attended in Denver an introductory weekend to her school and found my calling, my niche. Calculating the immense financial cost of the four year study, I was forced to put it on hold. With serious intent and most of the time a lot of fun I gave between 20 and 25 massages a week and saved. Interviews with for example News and Star and BBC Radio Cumbria secured an ever full diary and waiting list.

In 2001 I graduated and moved back to Findhorn and in 2007 as teacher of Brennan Healing Science followed after 30 USA and 6 Germany trips. Fun remains. My intention to do the work is focused and strong. Clients now travel from all over Western Europe for treatments and teachings.

This is my journey over the last 18 years resulting in running a healing and retreat centre in a beautiful tranquil location, in living a life fully dedicated to supporting clients in empowering themselves, in organising workshops including TECHS, a 7 week diploma course in healing techniques and cellular awareness.

It's a good life, a fun life, a full life and I thought you might find it interesting and inspiring to read.
