I’m Geert. I’m a therapist and a lecturer on essential oils, aromatherapy and massage therapy, working with therapists and health/care professionals.

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 combined approach provides support for stress conditions, pain, psycho-emotional complaints and energy loss.

I’m a member of the educational team of the Collège International d’Aromathérapie Dominique Baudoux (→ French) (Enghien, Belgium) and a guest lecturer at Vives’ Wellbeing and Vitality Management bachelor programme (→ Dutch) (Kortrijk, Belgium). Besides the work for and with professionals, I also run workshops for individuals, in collaboration with socio-cultural and other organizations (→ Dutch).

I studied a Master of Science in Industrial Sciences. Ever since, methodology, analysis and synthesis are in my playfield. That’s how I practice and how I lecture today.

That’s also where the book comes in: 60 Essential Oils for the Massage Therapy Practice – Handbook. Very little has been written about the real-life application of essential oils in the therapeutic settting of a massage therapy practice. With the book, I hope to make a contribution.

Feel free to get in touch.

A journey

Geert holds a Master of Science in Industrial Sciences degree from Groep T (Leuven, Belgium), studied information technology at VUB (Brussels, Belgium) and spent the first part of his career working in high-tech industries in France and Belgium. Passionate about French culture, he moved in his early twenties to Toulouse, France where he lived for 11 years.

In 2005 he joined the meridian shiatsu therapist training program International School Shiatsu Yoga Mediterraneo. Upon his move back to Flanders he pursued his training at Iokai Shiatsu (Paris, France).

Over the years, while studying Eastern manual therapy and philosophy, Geert choose his own path. In 2016 he completed the six-day training course “Scientific medical aromatherapy” at the Collège International d’Aromathérapie Dominique Baudoux, which convinced him to specialize in the study of aromatic plant extracts.
