Tomas Nelissen loves working with children and adolescents. As a father of five children himself he knows that children are always a mirror of their parents. When encountering a child with signs of tension, fear or insecurity, he will therefore often also treat the mother or the father. In many cases this is sufficient in order to resolve the symptoms presenting in the child. For example, when sufficient space is restored to allow the child to participate in her development, then her appetite – as well as her creativity and zest for life – will return once again.
I AM WHO I AM WITHOUT HAVING TO BE SOMEONE.
The pressure to achieve, unrealistic expectations and an overprotective attitude, combined with sugary foods aplenty: this is a potent mix that in children will often stagnate the free flow of vital energy or Chi. Hara Shiatsu will always approach children as equals. A respectful and neutral touch generally has immediate and positive effects – not only in resolving complaints on a physical, but also an emotional and spiritual level. Children feel reassured and accepted – they can be who they are.
