I’m Geert. With a blend of unique workshops and webinars, I create an uplifting impact on well-being in teams, companies and organizations. Check out Sleep and stress: the dream couple, 10 essential oils for an active life in balance and Painless mobile.
I lecture on essential oils and aromatherapy to therapists, health/care professionals and spa/wellness professionals. I’m a member of the educational team at the Collège International d’Aromathérapie Dominique Baudoux (Enghien, Belgium) and a lecturer at VIVES (Kortrijk, Belgium).
I’m passionate about manual therapy and Eastern philosophy. In my client work I choose an integrative approach, combining Eastern manual therapy (Chinese Tuina, Japanese Shiatsu), Western massage and the biochemistry of aromatic plant extracts.
The primary focus of my work is on the relation between scientific research and therapeutic applications in both aromatherapy (thru topical application and inhalation) and massage therapy, in particular when dealing with stress conditions, pain, psycho-emotional disorders and energy depletion.
