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.
