About Embodied Emotions

Restoring the connection between body and mind

I am passionate about exploring the profound connection between body and mind. My journey began with a personal realization - emotions are not merely abstract thoughts; they reside within us, ingrained in our very beings. To truly connect with oneself and others, I believe in embracing our bodies as an essential step. In this process, the power of touch emerges as an invaluable bridge between body and mind, allowing us to delve deeper into our emotional landscapes.

Your body is constantly communicating with you, signaling emotions through various sensations. Whether it's a gentle whisper or a fervent cry for attention, every body talks. 

At the heart of my practice is the sincere desire to help you listen to and comprehend the language of your body. When your body feels acknowledged and seen, it no longer needs to shout for help or go on strike. Your body deserves your attention and tender loving care.

My treatments are thoughtfully tailored to meet your unique needs, ensuring you receive the utmost care and attention. By customizing my approach, I aim to create an experience that resonates best with you, promoting holistic well-being.

I invite you to embark on this transformative journey with me. Please don't hesitate to reach out and discover how we can work together.

WHO I AM

My Background

After 10+ years of working in an office of a large international NGO, I had reached a point where I needed a radical change in my life. I had ignored my body's signals for too long.  During my own healing journey I discovered the power of touch. I soon started studying massage therapy at the Akademie voor Massage en Beweging in Amsterdam. I've been a certified holistic massage practitioner since 2020 and graduated as a licensed massage therapist in May 2023. 

Next to my massage practice I also work as a doula, supporting pregnant women (and their partners) through pregnancy, birth and the post-partum period. You can read more about my doula services on www.doulamarlene.nl
