I was born in 1982, in Lier and grew up in the small town of Everberg.
From a young age, my mission, interest and fascination quickly became clear: human beings and their health.
The study program to become a physiotherapist and sports physiotherapist was a great stepping stone for further deepening of my knowledge. I kept looking for deeper layers and connections: the why, how, the causes and the core of the symptoms. Sometimes I drove my teachers mad with all my questions: “Yes, but …and…why , and where is this coming from? “
A Holistic view on humans; the global view was a priority for me.
During my backpacking trip through Australia and Fiji, I came in contact with an acupuncturist, as I was suffering from long term and returning inflammations.
After this experience, I believed even more in man´s self-healing properties.
One should not see ‘disease’ as an enemy, as it often tells us something. I read a book in Australia called “your body never lies“, which explains that the body expresses itself through signals, which always find a way to underline imbalances.
A life long journey, a deepened experience and an infinite passion started began after that trip.
I also have experience in special education, in which children with mild to serious mental disability and autism have touched my heart, and where transparency and purity are key.
I have been studying for 10 years and I continue to increase my knowledge and specialization: attending both national and international conferences, additional trainings, but also following education programs 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 keep learning eternally.
I am driven by these ancient fascinating treatments and keep adding to my inner library, full of experiences, growth and knowledge.
