I was born in 1982, in Lier, and grew up in the small town of Everberg.
Since I was young, I have had a clear idea of my mission, interest and fascination in life: people and their health.
My studies to become a physiotherapist and sports physiotherapist were good stepping stones towards further development of knowledge. But I kept looking for more layers and connections: the why, the how, the causes and the deeper roots of symptoms. Sometimes I drove my teachers mad with all my questions: “Yes, but …” and “Why?” and “Where is this coming from?” I was desperate to gain a holistic view of human beings.
On a backpacking trip through Australia and Fiji, I was suffering from chronic and repeated inflammation. I was treated by an acupuncturist. This gave me a fundamental insight into our self-healing properties.
We should not see ‘disease’ as an enemy, as it often tells us something. In Australia I read a book called Your body never lies, which explains that our bodies send us signals to indicate imbalances.
That trip was the beginning of a life-long journey, a journey to deepen my experience and follow my insatiable passion.
I also have had experience with special education for children with mild or serious mental disabilities and autism. They touched my heart and showed the vital importance of transparency and purity.
I have been studying for 20 years and I continue to increase my knowledge and specialisation by attending national and international conferences and special courses, and following programmes to develop myself and grow as a person, woman and acupuncturist. Every person visiting my practice teaches me something about myself and mirrors something in myself.
I am a life-long learner, I love life and I plan to keep on learning.
I am fascinated by ancient treatments. They drive me to keep adding to my inner library of experiences, growth, and knowledge.
