Allow yourself to rest. Rest is where your strength hides.
Welcome! My name is Mei-Lin Koster, born in Taiwan and raised in The Netherlands. I love to implement my passion for people, culture and diversityin my work. What could be more beautiful than bringing a piece of Asian culture to the West?
In 2018 I completed my education as preventive masseur in Thai yoga massage (TYM) at the official Thai Dee institute in Nieuwegein. Thai Dee is a training institute in the Netherlands that is recognized by KTNO, BATC, NVST & CRKBO and specializes in various forms of Thai massage, such as chair massage, yoga massage, pregnancy massage and therapeutic massage. I have had the honor of being taught by Tirza Bottema, founder of the Thai yoga massage. Because of her background in physiotherapy and anthropology, I have also gained theoretical knowledge about history and research, movement theory, anatomy of muscles, bones and joints, and business ethics throughout my studies.
..a sense of trust, accessibility and a loving form of attention..
My goal is to create a sense of trust, accessibility and a loving form of attention in the massage sector. In particular areas of this sector I have experienced certain concerning developments. Society is in a rush. Time is money and in some cases quality is lost due to the focus on quantity. What's more, there are still "Thai" massageshops in The Netherlands that present few similarities with the original Thai massage. The effectiveness of such massages is open for discussion. At least we could agree upon the fact that it is confusing. Asian massage techniques can have unprecedented healing effects for body and mind, if done properly.
I feel grateful when I am allowed to take away someone's tension by relieving stress and pain. In my massage treatments I focus on the muscles and joints, not just on the skin surface. Thanks to this, the effects of the massages are more effective and the benefits will be felt for a longer time. If desired, I also like to provide clients with more information about massage techniques and possible causes of complaints.
My expertise lies mainly in treating people with a lot of pressure in their heads caused by stress, worry or in case of ad(h)d and high sensitivity.
