2blossom has one solid root: Laura Hoekstra.
'I understand employers who stimulate their employees to bring out the best in them. Through awareness of posture & attitude, healthy eating, exercise and intrinsic motivation, 2blossom helps your employees to find the right balance. Healthy, balanced people perform better.'
It's also important to keep yourself inspired. Out of love and passion for her profession, Laura conscientiously follows the latest scientific research in the field of nutrition, exercise, and exercise-and-health psychology. 2Blossom's masseurs attend regular refresher courses to keep their knowledge and skills up to date.
With her background as an integral health therapist Laura searches to find the best way to restore balance. This is always a team effort between the client and herself. Hereby there is not merely a focus on the complaints, but the person is treated as a whole.
'Our body is constructed beautifully and gives us signals, for example fatigue or pain. If we ignore these signals, we become sick. I'm therefore an advocate of prevention: finding a good balance in nutrition, movement and coping with stress and emotions. Through insight and practical advice people get the tools to restore balance and to get in touch with their inner drive. I do this as a professional with respect and openness. Because the most beautiful aspect of my job is that eventually people do it themselves.'
'For me collaboration between my profession CAM (Complementary Alternative Medicine) and conventional medicine is normative. The best of both worlds.'
Complaints that significantly improve or disappear through massage are: migraines, neck-,shoulder- and/or back-pain, sore arms and wrists. In case of pain complaints the masseur always looks at the full picture. A complaint in the shoulder often radiates to the arm or neck for example. A neck complaint could e.g. come from the shoulder.
'I feel clients relax through the touch of my hands and see them return to their work environment with renewed energy. The good thing about structural chair massage is that you can work at long term prevention. So not just remedying but also preventing complaints. The masseur not only massages but may also offer advice on how to prevent future complaints or refer employees to an appropriate practitioner if necessary. It's beautiful to hear that many clients benefit from the massages and even experience it as a gift.’
The employee also becomes aware and more conscious of posture. Chair massage is much more than mere relaxation.

The body is a psycho-neuro-biological unity. What we think affects our physiology and vice versa our lifestyle has an effect on our mental wellbeing. Everyone is different, so treatment is personally tailored. Sometimes (coaching) conversations and advice are enough, sometimes 2blossom supports treatment with natural remedies.MORE ON HEALTH ADVICE
