Shantam is the Director and Founder of Meditative Touch Rebalancing. He is a qualified Bodywork/Massage Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Meditation Facilitator, and a Master of Clinical Hypnosis. As an experienced teacher, he loves to share everything he has learned on his life journey.
He has been practicing bodywork/massage for ten years, applying different techniques/styles such as Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Core Integration, Rolfing, Rebalancing, Joint-Mobilisation (Trager approach), and assisted Yoga stretches of Ayurvedic/Thai origin. Together with these techniques, his experience with meditation for over 19 years has helped him incorporate his sensitivity and energy healing into his bodywork to deepen his work and act on more subtle levels. In doing so, his clients experience that he can reach beyond the physical body, to a beautiful space where more profound and long-lasting healing can take place.
Every session is unique as he adapts to the body and condition of the client. Everyone can benefit from his experience, regardless of age and gender. He has worked with pregnant women and seniors alike. He thoroughly prepares for each massage session, taking care of the condition of his own body and mind. During his bodywork sessions, he becomes like a “reflection” for the clients, enabling him to better understand their needs and connect with the areas requiring attention. He admires his clients for their exceptional courage, strength, and willingness to work on themselves.
With years of experience as a multi-style Massage Therapist, Meditation Teacher, and Hypnotherapist, he has gained excellent knowledge about the mind and how it influences the body. In his massage therapy training course, he helps his students learn these principles by teaching how to work on energy levels and achieve a balance so that both mind and body can experience deep relaxation.
Passionate about sharing, Shantam is confident that when you give, you receive back, and that is why he finds bodywork and facilitating massage certification courses to be such miraculous ways of touching others’ lives. He realizes what the human body is and how necessary it is to accept what it is saying to us. He considers himself gifted and fortunate to be able to support and assist people on their life journey towards health, blissfulness, and self-awareness.
Shantam feels that massage is like a prayer because the human body is a temple, and he treats it with honor and love. Bringing feelings into the body is essential when working with students and clients. The body is a microcosmos in itself, and its capacities to balance and heal itself are beyond comprehension.
