My name is Sophie Fagan. I am passionate about holistic massage, especially as a means of combating stress. I understand how damaging the effects of stress can be on the body and mind from both personal and professional experience. This has given my massage work a deeper meaning when it comes to working with clients. Creating a safe space for healing to take place, it is clear that recovery and empowerment can come from challenging life experiences. In recent years I have focussed my massage work extensively with clients on the Burn-out journey and experiencing chronic conditions with physical and mental challenges such as Long Covid.
It’s an honour to help all my clients let their barriers down, achieve greater connection with their bodies and establish better peace of mind.
Our massage session together
I see holistic massage as a partnership. During each session we will work together to create the best treatment for you so you get the most out of your time with me.
Skills and Training
I am Bristol (UK) born and bred now living and thriving in The Netherlands. This move came from a gut feeling, one I am deeply grateful for.
I’m a graduate of the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork (BCMB), qualified with a Diploma in Holistic Massage in 2010. I am a fully insured massage practitioner. I am also a Tai Chi and Chi Kung instructor running Amsterdam Chen Tai Chi and Chi Gong where I offer workshops to groups, businesses and on a 1-1 basis.
The principles and wisdom behind these ancient forms of Chinese exercise inform my massage practice and enable me to fully connect with each client through my body use and focus of energy.
I am a strong believer in ´Strength in Community´ which is why I am the proud the co-founder of Embodied Empowerment. Embodied Empowerment is an open-to-all community that provides wellness events, experiences, retreats, and so much more.
