Dear all


Summer has ended!

It has been great and I want to thank all for the great support and all your bookings through the summer! Special thanks to the team of “3 op reis” for featuring me in your program promoting the Algarve and using my massage on Dutch TV!!

If anyone wants to see the program, go to  or read the article in the Algarve resident:

During summer I encountered many cases of de-hydration again. This due to insufficient sun protection, insufficient rest and……booze!! Please remember, during your holidays and the warm days in the Algarve we do tend to drink a little more then “normal”! Often resulting in hangovers, night cramps and the general feeling of the lack of energy. During our holidays it is “normal to up” our alcohol intake however we tend to forget to up our good old water intake as well. Alcoholic beverages and coffees and the Algarve heat de-hydrate us so we need to up the water intake. Better even, Besides drinking more of the good old water, up your active moving as well! Go surfing or paddle boarding!! If you need more details about those activities, please contact me! There are surf schools in Praia the Faro and paddle board lessons and rentals available on the lake in Quinta do Lago (beginners, great) or at Breeze in Vale do Lobo when you are courageous enough to ride some waves!! Of course tennis, pilates, yoga, golf, horse riding and more is easily available in the area. If you need info, don’t hesitate to give me a ring on int+ 351 918822448 or send me a message through my contact page!!

I have the possibility to offer my services as well in Quinta de Calma, opposite the San Lourenco church just outside Almancil, in Quinta do Mar at the old “Prime Properties sales office” where Sol Viegas does a great job with her yoga classes as well, in Faro at the brand new Beauty Clinic “B-one” where they offer many great beauty treatments ( easy parking and close to Algarve shopping!) and of course my main room at “The Art of Beauty” in Almancil where Petra offers her amazing Beauty and pedicures/manicures and much more, Jim van Heck has his great hair salon and I have my comfortable and beautiful massage treatment room available for you

In the Algarve I sponsor/participate at many charity events, the Bike ride, Christmas fair at Four seasons, San Lorenzo golf event. Normally a perfect day out for the whole family and to support ACCA who is doing great work for the under privileged children in the Algarve! If you are organizing a event and want to use my input or appearance, then contact me!

Don’t forget, maintenance of your body is one of the reasons I am around. Looking forward meeting you  soon!
