About me

About me

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.


 

Education

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.
