I have been coming to Carollyne for Thai Yoga Massage for a year now. I notice her enormous experience and expertise throughout the massage. Often I enter with a feeling of stress and leave her practice with a feeling of freedom. Carollyne does her job with great dedication and from the heart. She pays attention to every detail before, during and after the massage. Finally, she does not hesitate to give me feedback regarding the adjustment of my behavior in daily life and during my presence in her practice.

The Thai Massage at Carollyne is really a gift, which you should give yourself more often. Before she starts, she takes the time to listen and figure out what’s bothering you. She works in a holistic way and asks questions that make you think about possible spiritual connections that your complaints may have. You will then be completely pampered. Carollyne emphasizes that everything is okay and gives you the freedom to indicate if you need something: water, bathroom break, a chat. Everything is possible. And she has a special and very natural way of connecting humor with depth, so that everything can be discussed. She creates an atmosphere of relaxation, tranquility and at the same time she always keeps in touch with you, is very observant and sees what happens in and with you. And she always gently encourages you to also relax the body parts that are unconsciously still keeping you tense. Letting go… that’s the trick!

She will carefully investigate your pains together with you. Out of curiosity rather than the pretense of knowing exactly how it all works. She clearly knows what she is doing and uses her own body professionally, gently and supportively to ensure that the (transitions to other) massage positions run very smoothly and naturally. It is very special to experience your body in “free hanging” positions, e.g. the legs and pelvis, which gives an unusual relief that you do not experience so easily with other types of massages. Carollyne gives you confidence in (the wisdom of) your own body. That it just does what it’s supposed to do, and that it does have its meaning. All the haste of the other daily grind falls away. And this also lasts after the massage. You feel “cosy”, centered and pleasantly tired.

Carollyne doesn’t just receive people, she teaches peaople to receive. Without condition. She gives with all her heart and is 100% in the moment. And that is palpable. She is really there for you and gives you all the space to be who you are. It is not only a massage for the body, but also for the mind! Because Carollyne sees, recognizes and accepts you as a person with your unique value. Not self-evident, and therefore absolutely inspiring and worth repeating.

Very special and healing. Carollyne is incredibly broadly educated, skilled and knowledgeable; her techniques are varying soft, relaxing, deep and powerful. Her treatments are highly recommended for people who have a lot of experience with massage, as well as for people who want to try something for the first time. Do yourself/your body a favor and book a session with Carollyne! ❤️

I know Carollyne as a friend and so know that she is warm, sweet, caring, humorous, and attentive. All this came by during the massage. It was a wonderful and very relaxing experience. She has countless diplomas and has created a unique way of massaging with that knowledge that cannot really be put into words. So experience yourself!!!

Origami Mindfulness Experience
I felt completely at ease. This massage is very different from usual. Massage therefore does not cover the full meaning of this treatment. It is combination of movement, stretching, folding, mindfulness, hypnosis and relaxing.

My body is gently and carefully folded like origami. Carollyne knows exactly what she’s doing. While she stretches and massages and folds your tendons, muscles and joints. Then I notice how much tension there is in my body. I finally relax, in complete surrender and even fall asleep without knowing it.

I leave the treatment with a sense of physical harmony.

The total treatment lasted two hours and fifteen minutes, but I lost the time. Carollyne knows how to reassure you completely.

The massage treatment was actually very ordinary what I liked. Except that I occasionally thought I was dealing with an octopus haha.

I have a lot of chronic stiffness in the whole body, and in the days after the treatment the deep elaboration of the treatment showed the following: The same evening everything was nice and relaxed, the next day I had a little pain in my foot, the next day I thought: nothing has changed! And then a very big relaxation came in the evening and now my body is really somewhere else. Great!

Dear Carollyne,

Actually, I have no words for what happened in the session with you last Wednesday. It was the perfect collaboration to release and reveal something deeply rooted in my body. I felt the body memory and its tension release and relax. And then how the light and a feeling of bliss could flow through my energy channels and cells. Because a lot of a trauma had been resolved, I expected that I would be rid of the tension in my body for good. That was not the case. Somehow my body managed to get back to the familiarity of the cramping at the back of my second chakra pretty quickly. (to the reader: that’s in the lower back) But the energetic shift has remained. So my body has to get used to the new condition. I also feel that the tension has shifted upwards, to between the shoulder blades. I suspect that this compensated for the tension in the lower back and now that it has become less, it can be felt more clearly.

I am so very grateful to you! I am also so happy that we speak in this ‘same language’, but without words. I can concentrate well, have a good awareness of my body and I can feel and know what it is about; you are fully attuned to me and know exactly which place to touch or which muscle to press. Very fascinating.

I have already worked a lot on myself and have been able to clear up many trauma. It seems as if I have now entered a different layer. It is a finer level, stored purely on a physical level. I feel that you can play a crucial role in that for me. I would like to work with you a few more times to create even more space. It feels as if the tension that is released gives space for light, which can then flow through my cells, so that the cells no longer have to shut the light out but are allowed to embrace it. It is actually the most natural state of a cell. Storing and letting light flow.

Would you please propose some options when you have time for the next session?

Dear greetings and a warm hug for you, wonderful person!

When I have massage in Belgium, it usually goes in silence. At Carollyne, however, I enjoyed a good co-creation and communication. For me it sometimes is a challenge to make good contact with my own body. Because Carollyne gave attention to my body and lead my attention there, it became possible to experience more about my body and to feel the difference between where I was tightening and relaxing. This way I could eventually get more out of my head and sinc more into my body.

As a result, this massage made cuddling itself more relaxing and made it possible to stay more in the present moment, so I am very happy that I had the preceding extensive massage.

Highly recommended: Thai Yoga massage by Carollyne. You notice immediately that she has a lot of knowledge and feels what your body needs. I am very impressed with this technique and Carollyne’s skill. It goes much further than a superficial massage. It brought me deep relaxation and my complaints were alleviated and remedied incredably. I’ve been to her for treatment twice now. And love to go back again.

You are the best masseur I have found until now. I enjoy it so much and find very special that you feel things in my body that I’m not aware of, and I am quite in touch with my body.

Carollyne has gifted me with one of the most wonderfull massages I have ever got to experience in my life. She is nurturing, attentive and intuitive to my needs with her gentle but firm healing hands. If I could I would treat myself every week! Thank you Carollyne for the magical moments shared, see you soon.

Magical, amazing, necessary, wow, Carollyne is an angel and her hands is a key to paradise. Very professional, competent and nice person and place. 10 stars is not enough.

Carollyne has really outdone every single therapist of any form. Her intuitive strength as well as her physical strength has worked wonders. I feel better than I have felt in three years! I had forgotten what it was like to live without certain pains, and after one beautiful session with this calming soul I feel like a new man. My eternal thanks and gratitude are due!

I left Carollyne’s studio after two hours of Thai Massage Bodywork. For me two hours of complete relaxation, for her two hours of hard work. She knew exactly where to push, touch or pull and used her whole body and power to do this. It resulted in the dissappearance of the everyday pains in my body, and a complete rest and suppleness in all my nerves, tendons and muscles. For me it was a precious experience, and i feel really grateful!

Carollyne is a very good masseuse who knows what she is doing, I can fully relax and if you want to chat, you can do that too. Sometimes it hurts a bit but this way you will find out where your stress is 🙂 Can recommend it to everyone.

Some time ago I went to Carollyne for a Thai Yoga massage. I have never had such a nice and good massage before. My body felt sensitive, tired and heavy before the massage. Unlike a “normal” massage in which certain body parts are massaged, I have experienced this massage as a much more complete massage where my entire body has been dealt with.

After the massage, my entire body felt lighter and looser, as if everything had space again.

Also during the massage I experienced comfort, safety and a personal approach.

Carollyne definitely is a very amazing woman just as her Thaimassage is as well! Her treatment went over 2,5 hours of stretching, kneading and rocking the body in a very gentle and sensitive way but firm at the same time. I have had some Thaimassages before, but this one is outstanding. This woman is so inspiring to me in many ways, from personal issues to business matters she can give advise as an understanding coach as well. Don´t miss out on her treatments!

Wow! What an incredibly healing, relaxing, and gentle experience it was to get a Thai Yoga Massage with Carollyne. I have never had a massage like this one, where Carollyne used her entire body, and her range of expertise in martial arts, yoga, deep tissue and Thai massage, to manipulate your body in just the right way to give you exactly what you need. I have always been afraid of “Thai Massage” after one experience in which the practitioner went through a prescribed series …of moves, twisting your body into awkward positions whether your muscles were warmed up or not. Do not be put off by the “Thai” part of the name of Carollyne’s practice – her intuitive feel for your body, and the gentle way she rocks you to release and warm your muscles is incredibly effective and healing. I have recommended her services to many others, and they have ALL raved about her sessions and gone on to recommend her to their friends. Give it a try for yourself!
