Hi, I'm Astrid Freja. I'm a grounding touch therapist – using a mix of psychomotor therapy, Reiki healing and yoga touch.
I'm a 3rd semester Psychomotor Therapy student. After living in India for more than 2 years, I decided to approach life from a more body-mind perspective. I walked the Camino the Santiago and I became an indoor climbing instructor.
I grew up in Germany having a Danish background. Later on, I moved to Switzerland, where my mother is from. Recently, I settled in Denmark. These experiences created an interest in understanding the roots and the importance of not only getting the mind, but also the body to land.
Psychomotor therapy prevents and alleviates tension, pain, and injuries, by relaxing and balancing muscles and joints, and working with posture and movement patterns.
The treatment increases body awareness, ground connection, blood circulation, natural energy flow, and helps to become better at sensing boundaries and setting boundaries in everyday life. It helps at being present, accepting oneself and managing emotions such as anxiety and fear.
Psychomotor therapy helps to find peace and can, hence, reduce stress. It strengthens focus and decision-making process, connecting the physical and mental well-being.
A treatment takes place with clothes on and can both be lying, sitting and standing, with the combination of different exercises. The treatment can be seen as a bodily, mental and verbal dialogue, between the client and the therapist.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It is practiced by hovering or laying on hands at specific areas on the body. It is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us. Reiki healing promotes:
Connection body and mind
It is a combination of yoga practise (taught during my 250 RYT and 70 RYT at Caribe Yoga Academy), Reiki and techniques acquired through psychomotor training. Yoga touch promotes:
Connecting body and mind
