Workshops well-being, stress and burnout
Training essential oils and aromatherapy
I’m Geert. If you want to take a peek behind the curtain, there’s a tiny bit of story telling about me further down the page (“A journey“). 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 loss, both in interpersonal (therapist) and care/medical settings.
Here’s my threefold work plan:
- I inspire companies and organisations with workshops on well-being, stress and burnout, invited by prevention advisers, human resource and wellbeing managers. Check out Painless mobile and Natural essential oils at home, in the office and on the road.
- I lecture on essential oils and aromatherapy to therapists, health/care professionals and beauty, spa & wellness professionals. I’m a lecturer at VIVES’ Wellbeing and Vitality Management bachelor programme (Kortrijk, Belgium) and a member of the educational team at the Collège International d’Aromathérapie Dominique Baudoux (Enghien, 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.
I studied a Master of Science in Industrial Sciences. Ever since, methodology, analysis and synthesis are in my playfield. I also studied heart lessons – in life. That’s how I inspire people and organisations, how I lecture and how I practice today.
Feel free to get in touch.
