Shiatsu Therapist

Myrte is a certified shiatsu therapist. Graduating in European Studies, she has worked in human resources for various organisations.

Myrte sees it as her mission to achieve more connection between the two through shiatsu therapy. The direction in which she graduated from shiatsu is Zen Shiatsu. This style is characterised by a combination of the centuries-old practice of eastern medicine with insights from western medicine and psychology.
