“Committed to living fully and passionately I help people to explore their protective layers and to open up safely into deeper connection with their true essence. In my Touch & Awareness training I've learned to support people in the nature of their experience, to approach bodies with listening hands in a way that isn't intrusive, to create and hold space for anything that needs to come up in the moment.”

Themer gives in addition to bodywork, online trainings for men. "With Touch and Awareness bodywork I work with the body to release tension, bring deep relaxation and increase aliveness. But also to gain insights. To my experience the body knows much more about ourselves than we think!
This is highly intuitive work that focuses on whatever is present in your body at the moment."

"I keep being amazed by how much the body can tell about who you truly are, by just being present with it in a gentle, loving way. I support people in creating a positive body image and loving their body just as it is. With T&A I invite my clients to come from the mind into their body. To become more aware of what the body is telling so they can release tension and explore their protective meganisms. This work supports them to embody more of their true essence."

"As an artist, an architect, and a bodyworker, the silver lining in all
my work is a love for regeneration. Whether it’s an abandoned building, salvaged material, or a body longing for deep restoration. To aid in the transformation of that which has been rejected or neglected. I give, hold, and create space in which I welcome you to come home to yourself and experience life through all your senses."

"I learned how to fully be there for others, using presence, touch and words. Also I learned how to connect more deeply with both my own body and with others. My passion is to create safe space to slow down, to soften and to connect more deeply with yourself!"
Advanced graduate | Berkel en Rodenrijs / Rotterdam | contact
"I am "holding space" for you and I will support you in the proces of embracing your inner truth.
Deeper breath can come in, more relaxation and aliveness can be felt and the circulation in the body can improve when you let go of old holding patterns in your body.
I love offering these sessions and bring you more in your body & less in your head."

"In my work as a composer, my hands hover softly over the piano keys to find its hidden melodies. With a profound curiosity, I bring a similar listening touch to a Touch & Awareness session. I have a calm and gentle approach, and in this serenity, I am genuinely present with you and with whatever arises in the moment."
