Therapeutic Massage and Energywork
Book an appointment:
Therapeutic massage & energywork using techniques from Ayurveda, deep tissue, prana Vidya ('meditation on Life Force') and Kundalini bodywork.
Release tensions, blocked emotions, and stagnant life force.
Restore, enter deep relaxation, leave with a blissful afterglow.
In my home in South Portugal, your home, or elsewhere around the world when I am traveling.
This is not your regular massage but a place for healing, restoration and rebalancing.
Therapeutic Ayurvedic Massage
Ayurvedic oil massage is a full-body (no private parts) therapeutic massage using warm sesame oil, essential oil, and long strokes along the muscles and skin to stimulate blood-flow and help you sink into a deep parasympathetic state of rest - a state that can be hard to get to all by oneself.
In this state of rest, the body starts to naturally restore by itself on a deep cellular level - which works deeply therapeutic on a mental and emotional level as well.
To facilitate release of tension and emotion, I work with deep tissue techniques on tight areas and knots in the body that you request or that I find while massaging.
Kundalini Bodywork & Prana Vidya
For those who are receptive to energy or with energetic blockages and (Kundalini) disturbance, the session can be more or less focussed on energy work.
Here extra time and attention is put into techniques of 'Prana Vidya' (=Sanskrit for 'meditation on life force') and Kundalini bodywork, like subtle (ujjayi) breathing, sound, visualization, concentration, spontaneous movements, energetic touch and communication.
This can arise spontaneously or can be requested in advance.
Optionally we spend the first 15 minutes of your session on a few rounds of activating pranayama (Yogic breathing). This controlled activation of the nervous system will support you to go even deeper into a parasympathetic rest state afterwards.
During the session, mindful breathing and making sound through simple techniques that I will teach you is invited as well to stimulate energy-flow. This is recommended but by no means obligatory.
1.5 hr: €150,-
2 hr: €190,-
*Session times exclude our meeting and integration time for which I make space for another extra 30 minutes per session

Some personal words (please read before booking a session)
It is quite normal to walk into a massage studio and to let someone work on your body that you don’t know or haven't seen before, but to me, working with someone’s body is something deeply sacred, a matter of trust, and not something to do with just anyone.
As the energetic part of this work is dependent upon your ability to let go and surrender - which begins with feeling safe - our work begins even before you walk into the room, already at the moment you consider having a session and read this page, as well as when I do my daily spiritual practices to cultivate my own energetic embodiment.
When there is trust and resonance, emotions and energetic pathways have the potential to open up in the body.
Knots can begin releasing, dormant life force can begin moving and harmonizing.
With a pole of receptivity and surrender, and a pole of presence and space holding, we collaborate with deeper layers of universal forces, inviting something beyond us into the room to work through us.
So please note that this bodywork is not just your regular massage. It is a holistic and energetic session for healing, releasing and restoration.
Please also note that I always like to connect first and feel you before confirming anything from my side.

The massage that Thomas gave me was a really profound experience for me. To call it a massage is not actually doing it justice. The body work released emotional blocks I wasn’t even aware I had. I can highly recommend Thomas.
I have received A LOT of body work. Thomas is incredible at what he does. So attuned, so aligned and attentive. He really feels into the person, the moment and what the body needs. If your looking not just for a massage but proper body work that also tunes into the energetic and emotional being of the person then Thomas is your guy.
The massage i received from Mathias was one of the best massages i've every received. The result was very good, i felt in constant vibration, an energy that remained for a long time.
I have received hundreds of different massages in my life. This was one of the best. He mixed ayurvedic and energy feeling to suit my needs. THANK YOU.
I definitely recommend Thomas for massage. It feels like he works very intuitively with the body, feeling atuned to what the unique body does and doesn't need at that specific moment. He also holds a safe space and radiates a loving, kind presence.
Thomas is gentle and uses strength when needed, he is safe and tuned in with your body. Not just a massage but an energetic boost for your system, best massage ever!
