Introduction

‘If you listen to your body,

You won’t have to hear it scream’

Being a professional dancer for over 15 years, Esra has had many massages during her career but unfortunately they haven’t all been amazing. Because of these past experiences, she felt there was something missing and realized it was time for a chang.  This is why she developed the very unique “Masaj” method. 

By carefully feeling and ‘listening’ to the body, Esra is capable of translating her method into a massage that will answer all the personal needs of the body. For many dancers and athletes the body is often strained in ways that create ‘trigger points’ in specific places.   These aren’t always taken care of in regular massages which don’t apply the unique “Masaj” method.

From that knowledge and love and commitment Esra will ensure that each and every ‘Masaj’ is unique.

Being a professional dancer for over 15 years, Esra has had many massages during her career but unfortunately they haven’t all been amazing.

By carefully feeling and ‘listening’ to the body, Esra is capable of translating her method into a massage that will answer all the personal needs of the body. For many dancers and athletes the body is often strained in ways that create ‘trigger points’ in specific places.   These aren’t always taken care of in regular massages which don’t apply the unique “Masaj” method.

From that knowledge and love and commitment Esra will ensure that each and every ‘Masaj’ is unique.

The Technique

Esra believes a full body balance is of great importance and always strives to make her clients leave feeling brand new. She starts with massaging the lower body to release tension and takes care of the biggest strains on the body – the lower body is intensively used by most dancers and athletes- and then she slowly works her way up the body. 

The upper body gradually relaxes more and more when the lower body is tension free, that then allows for the body to benefit more from an upper body massage afterwards. The unique approach of the “Masaj” method is inspired by the techniques of Thai Massage, such as “Thumb presses” on the ‘sen’ lines making the energy flow in the body,  combined with special stretches if the body needs it. This massage method goes seamlessly together with the classic and the deep tissue massage to guarantee the body of relief from any tension or stress.

The Experience

Through the use of a combination of these various techniques, a great understanding of the human body and her extensive experience as a dancer, Esra’s unique “Masaj” method guarantees a magical experience that ensures a “full body balance”, a tension/stress free body and an increased body circulation to achieve a positive energy flow. As every body is different and therefore asks for a specific approach, Esra never works from a standardised routine and always makes sure that every massage is personalised
