The Way Of Touch: Massage & Bodywork

  with Sarah Kate
The Way Of Touch 
Welcome to my practice for Holistic Massage & Bodywork in the heart of Amsterdam’s Jordaan, where I offer you hands that meet you where you are. Tailored treatments that are characterised by a clear, firm, nuanced touch, as I work with dynamic pressure to support your body, muscles and connective tissues to release: blockages, muscle tension, stress, stagnation and to further aid natural alignment and healing. Always
in respectful dialogue with the response of both the physical and emotional body.
The ultimate aim is to help YOU to: drop into YOUR body, become fully present,
create inner space and leave you feeling
deeply nourished
& nurtured.
Myofascial Energetic Release is a theraputic treatment for releasing trauma and chronic physical and emotional pain stored in the body. What is MER? Check here.

I have reached such relaxation that I have entered the world of dreams.
She goes into inner layers where she finds and releases deep tensions.
… how good it feels that she knows how to read exactly what my body needs.You forget the feeling of time and space until you magically
return to the real world. Thank you Sarah Kate!

Sarah Kate offers a treatment that feels wholesome and nurturing.
She understands that massage is a form of communication, an exchange of energy, focused on bringing balance and restoring the body. She tunes in and is very conscious of what your body needs. It is not a mere sequence of actions & movements, it’s truly a healing experience, handled with care & respect. I can recommend her treatment to the fullest.
