“Alhoewel de naam voor mij niet zo uitnodigend en verhelderend was, blijkt de structural integration 12 series een zeer succesvolle investering geweest! Al na de 1e sessie voelde ik verandering in mijn lichaam en werd en bleef ik me bewuster van mijn houding. Christel begeleidt op een hele fijne, en bevlogen manier. Nu, na de 12 series merk ik dat ik al die tijd geen last meer van mijn onderrug heb gehad, voelen mijn nek en schouders een stuk vrijer en merk ik dat ik meer rechtop zit, sta en loop. Ik ben me ook bewust van het feit dat ik zelf ook een belangrijke bijdrage kan leveren om de positieve veranderingen in stand te houden, in de vorm van bepaalde rek en strek oefeningen. Ook hierin geeft Christel hele waardevolle tips. Er is veel meer bereikt dan heleboel fysiotherapiesessies bij elkaar. Dank je wel, Christel!

Do you experience chronic pain or recurring pain?

Have you tried a lot, but does the pain persist or return?
Then you have come to the right place at PHYSI.YOGA.

Read on to discover what Pain Reprocessing Therapy or Structural Integration could do for you.

SHOP - Self Myofascial Release

In the treatment I regularly use self-myofascial release techniques and exercises.
After experiencing the positive effects of them myself, having followed courses in using them, both therapeutically and within lessons, I decided to start selling them. Because of the quality of these Yoga Tune Up balls, and the fact that I source them from the US, they are a bit more expensive, but I believe these are one of the most effective self-massage balls I've come across!

PHYSIOTHERAPY

Since 2011 I have been working as a physiotherapist and treat complaints of the postural and locomotor system.

You can think of neck and shoulder complaints, back complaints and ankle and knee complaints.

Your request for help is central to the treatment. We draw up personal treatment goals based on your request for help, the anamnesis and the examination. Examples of goals could be minimizing or eliminating pain during certain activities or movement and getting back to your favourite sport. 

I also use my various specializations in myofascial therapy within my physiotherapy treatments. I often combine this with home-exercises to work together towards the desired treatment goal. Treatment usually consists of both hands-on treatments using manual/myofascial techniques and exercise therapy.

My particular areas of interest within Physiotherapy are:

  • Recurring and chronic pain complaints
    (Pain Reprocessing Therapy)

  • ScarWork Therapy

  • Posture-related complaints

  • Shoulder complaints and, in particular, Frozen Shoulder complaints

STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION

Structural Integration of Structural Bodywork is an interactive approach, in which manual therapy is combined with movement and movement education. Compensatory patterns in posture and movement can result from, for example, injury, surgery, trauma, repetitive movement, or expression of emotion. 

Our body adapts to these compensation patterns by sometimes building more or stiffer connective tissue. As a result, certain areas in the body can become less mobile, which can manifest itself in complaints or discomfort in movement. 

Born in Structural Integrationwe smell manual fascia techniques to open these adhesions, regain freedom of movement in the body and find a natural balance and length in the posture of the entire body.

This makes Structural Bodywork or Structural Integration suitable for rehabilitation as well as preventive to prevent complaints in the future.
 

Possible outcomes include relief from pain and discomfort, improved posture, greater freedom of movement, and improvement in general well-being, both physical and emotional. Clients often report a decrease in pain and that they feel longer, lighter and freer in the body. 

Structural Integration as a treatment is most effective in the form of a series of treatments: the 12 series. Read more about the Anatomy Trains 12 series here.

SCARWORK

ScarWork was developed by Sharon Wheeler, an American Structural Integrator. It is a specialized manual (hands-on) treatment, which focuses specifically on scar tissue, fibrosis, adhesions and changes in the health of the tissue, for example as a result of an accident, trauma, surgery and/or radiotherapy.
The manual treatment is a non-invasive and painless treatment of the scar itself and the surroundings of the scar. The main goal of this treatment is not so much focused on the cosmetic and external aspects of the scar, although this can be positively influenced. The treatment focuses in particular on relieving pain and limitations due to the scar, the mobility of the scar and the degree of stiffness and nerve function.  

SELF-MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

You can find the Yoga Tune Up balls in my webshop. Fine self-massage balls that you can use for various self-release techniques and exercises. After experiencing the positive effects in my body myself, I started taking various courses in the use and application of these balls. Because I was so excited about the effects, I started using them in therapy as well. That's why I import these Yoga Tune Up balls from the US, and sell them in the Netherlands. 


The best known is massaging under the foot, but there are so many more options to work specifically with injuries, mobility limitations, or preventively. It is also wonderfull as relaxation and a piece of self-care. I offer 1-on-1 Self-Myofascial Release appointments, if requested in combination with Yin Yoga and Slings Myofascial Training.

(YIN) YOGA

After practising yoga for several years myself and having noticed the therapeutic effect in my own body with a complex injury, I continued to study yoga and its therapeutic use in 2016. I did a 200- and advanced 300-hour teacher training in India, after which I became more and more interested in the myofascial focus and therapeutic effect in Yin Yoga. In 2017 I, therefore, followed another 200-hour Yin training in Bali.
After all this deepening and subsequent experience in yoga's therapeutic use in practice, I started teaching teacher training courses myself. Sharing a passion, is there anything more fun?
From Yin Yoga, I then moved on to study more and specialize in myofascial therapy, both hands-on with Anatomy Trains Structural Integration, as well as in movement with Slings Myofascial Training.

YOGA & SLINGS MYOFASCIAL TRAINING

Slings Myofascial Training is a fascia-focussed body-minded movement method. This integral mat-based training can be enhanced and adapted with massage balls or other small, supportive props.
In this class, the focus lies on the health-enhancing qualities of fascia, which contribute to the balance of your posture, movement efficiency, and your vitality. The contrasting movement sequences contain dynamic and rhythmical and soft and melting exercises in all body positions.
The method is based on new findings in fascia research and movement science. Furthermore, Slings implies the Anatomy Trains concept, which portrays the body-wide interconnectedness of muscles and fascia in myofascial slings (short "Slings").
The sense of well-being and freedom after a Slings class is priceless!
