Karina Hoog

Massage Therapist

After graduating from Theories and Practice of Trad.AsianTherapies, TriggerPointWork and the positive experience on my own pains instilled in me curiosity and passion Soft Tissue has on our general well-being and movement. I learned that this world  – even bothering us more often as we want –  also gives into our own hands an ever-adaptable fabric: We can form to prevent and prevent to form.  My goal is to help you to keep this balance.

My work is a blend of musculoskeletal techniques, therapeutically relaxing but mindful and inspiring by focusing on proper posture and self-release techniques. Focus on general Myofascia release and mandatory release of the postural chain. My many techniques ranges from circulation issues to impact deeper layers and adjust with ease from your personal acceptance to the needs of your engineering. I offer Stress-Release, Esalen influenced Massage, and Lymph-Drainage. TCM practice in all it's different forms focuses mostly on mobilization and circulation. Best results yield by intuitively combining to a bigger picture.  My Bodywork Philosophy is a circle, created by: Chinese/Asian Medical Massage; Thomas Hendrickson Wave Mobilization; Tai Qi/Martial Art; Body-Alignment; Neuromuscular- and Fibrosis release. 
 
I highly cherish the advantage of a close Client/Trainer/Therapist relation here at AXIS - addressing issues inside out - on the spot.
unnamedIf I am not intuitively ripping off skin, I love most being out horseback-riding. I train horses via Liberty and do Equine TriggerPointWork. Nature for me is everything, it equals outside and inside of us; yields a philosophy; clears the mind of clutter; is art and music; it is the matrix of Life. It helps to recognize to live what we are; because nature needs all the different shades: Water Tree Air Fire Metal.  Life comes in circles; to recognize them is my aim in Life. 
 
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have via email. I am happy to discuss a problem or my work with you!
