Hi, my name is Indah,

Having studied physiotherapy in the Netherlands (BSc. in Health, from the Hogeschool van Amsterdam in 2009), I have been working as a massage therapist in the beautiful Algarve (where I grew up), for over 8 years now.

I realized how much gain there is, both physical and emotional, in receiving massages. 

I started with a mobile physiotherapy service, visiting people with mobility restrictions, working especially with geriatric patients but also athletes and others, treating neurological, post-operative & musculoskeletal conditions. I still visit my elderly patients on a regular basis.

Simultaneously I have been bringing massages to locals and tourists, who were happy to receive a massage treatment in their house or under the blue sky...

My main passion lies in giving massages, looking at the body and person as a whole, always employing general relaxation, along with a combination of massage techniques to help you to an efficient & relieving massage experience.

A greater awareness of your body (and underlying issues), will also help you to feel yourself better and make your well-being a higher priority. 

Listening to what you would like and (feeling) what your main areas of tension are, I adapt every massage to your  personal wishes and to your body´s needs.

I have also been giving Pilates classes since 2014 and have done pre & post natal Pilates courses for a few years. Having done my professional Pilates training in Brazil, where Pilates is widely practiced. In my regular Pilates classes, all ages are welcome (classes are beginners - intermediate level). Classes can be specifically tailored to you or your group.  

Among the continuing education courses I have done in the past years are:

  • Pilates for the pelvic floor
  • pelvic floor functions and dysfunctions
  • manual lymphatic drainage
  • aqua - Pilates
  • pregnancy & post natal Pilates
  • manipulation of the spine - osteopathic method
  • 200 Hr Yoga instructor course
  • NLP practicioner course for coaching purposes
  • Balinese Massage
  • Curso de formadores (instructor course)

My mother tongue is German, I speak Portuguese, Dutch and English fluently, Spanish and French on conversational level.

You can currently visit me in my treatment room in Raposeira, near Vila do Bispo and Sagres and i offer mobile treatments and classes in the area.

Contact me for any further information, thank you!
