In the fast-paced world of today, meditation is essential to achieve inner peace. By meditating you ease the tension in your body and get in touch with yourself. Through massage, you can come in contact with the other person.
The peaceful Monte Maravilhas is the ideal location for a massage course. During the massage course in Portugal, amidst the beautiful nature of the Alentejo Portugal, you learn how to balance your body and mind.
We start every day with meditation. Here you will learn various meditation techniques. Afterward, you learn how to perform a holistic massage with amongst others, joint relaxation, deep muscle and tissue massage, energy work, breathing, and movement. The massage course in Portugal is taught by Prem Zijtveld, owner and manager of Monte Maravilhas.
Since 1990 Prem runs a massage & rebalancing practice, where she offers individual treatments and supervises courses. She has worked for many years for the Akademie voor Massage & Beweging (Academy for Massage & Movement) in Amsterdam.
