I’m an unapologetic spa junkie. Scrub me, steam me, rock me, rub me! Massage and bodywork are my passion, and I take great pride in providing the very best experience possible to the clients I work with. I am particularly adept in helping eliminate chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain thru deep tissue massage with a compassionate touch. I feel strongly that therapeutic massage and bodywork are the best ways to assist the body in achieving inner peace and functioning at an optimum level of wellness. I have over 25 years of experience in the art of massage not only as a practitioner, but also as an educator and mentor. I also continue to develop my education in different areas to keep with the trends of the industry. I have additional training in Reiki, craniosacral, geo thermal technique, Bellavi face lift massage, active isolated stretching and sports therapy, bamboo therapy, oncology massage, Alchimie Brightening Peels and GuaSha JadeStone Facelift and MediVac cupping. When I’m not in the studio I’m spending time with my two boys Kenny and Myles, and our rescue pup Cooper. We love our small beach town life. Surf, sand, and starry nights with lots of laughs with our circle of friends.
I, George Hansel, have been practicing bodywork therapy for over 30 years in America before moving to Den Haag to live with my partner. I've studied shiatsu at the Ohashiatsu Institute in N.Y.C and CraioSacral Therapy at the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Both of those schools currently have an official presence here in Nederland. Over the years of my practice I've attended numerous and varied workshops, and lectures, on number of subjects about health and healing. In the U.S.A I'm certified in CPR which was a requirement for licensing. I have had a significant amount of experience with ADHD, Autism, and Fragile X Syndrome in children, and had been a regular referral of local psychotherapists often treating entire families through their course of talk therapy. I have been certified by the Associated Bodywork and Massage Practitioners (ABMP) through most of my last 30 years in practice and I consider this work not so much just what I do, rather as who I am. I have over 30 years of experience as a bodywork therapist in both CranioSacral Therapy and Ohashiatsu. I began practicing Ohashiatsu (a style of the Japanese acupressure know as shiatsu) in 1984 after studying at the Ohashiatsu Instatute in New York City. I added CranioSacral Therapy (CST) to my skills by 1986 after training with the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Shiatsu is similar to acupuncture, with the practitioner using pressure rather than needles. The Eastern Medicine concepts of The 5 Element Theory are used to balance the body's Chi ( Life Force) giving the body more opportunity to heal itself. CranioSacral Therapy uses extremely light touch (an average of 5 grams) to manipulate the tissue (the Dura) that surrounds the central nervous system and the brain. The separate bones of the head and spine are lightly moved to release any restrictions to the nervous system that may be causing misalignment, pain, or the inability for the brain to communicate wit
