ABOUT ME / GLOBAL MASSAGE
I am Angela Smith, born and raised in Amsterdam but a world citizen. I am founder and employee of Global Massage. I am a licensed Massage Therapist. Currently I have a mobile practice. (Any pop up or permanent location is updated on this website). I give relaxation massages, deep tissue massages, chair massages, foot massages and -reflexology. I work exclusively with natural products without additions of preservatives or other E-numbers. I offer African-, Asian- and European inspired arrangements as for massage, products and setting.
Since a few years I have been focussing on the massages and I have obtained the necessary certificates. Keeping up to date is an ongoing process. I also recently started a 4-year course to become a physiotherapist. My interest started from (then) chronic back pain complaints. But gradually I began to notice the other positive effects of massages, with the overall relaxation and free flow of energy being the most important and actually all-encompassing one. In a relaxed state, body and mind are able to regulate our balance 'automatically'. This means that tension is converted into relaxation and depending on the chosen massage, it can also be revitalizing. And without all of the above it is just enjoyable to get a massage, even if that is the sole reason.
Fully clothed massages are available and optional. The massages are a combination of African, Asian and Western styles. But these too are influenced by all kinds of cultures. It is therefore right to call it a fusion and for this reason I have chosen this name and these slogans. I am living circulating proof of the union and fusion of cultures and 'worlds'. Everything is actually influenced by everything and nothing in isolation.
You can also contact me for counseling. What I offer is a combination of counseling and massage that involves body and mind. After finishing my pre university education, I studied at the University of Amsterdam for a few years. I also have my propaedeutics in Pedagogy and Psychology on a higher vocational education level. Therefrom I have obtained some helpful tools that form this method: Verbally manifesting accompanied by a physical sensation and thereby creating new connections. Sometimes we want a massage to relieve physical complaints that have arisen as a response to our mental state.
We try to in a way take the route backwards, by this approach of counseling. The counseling is also within a predetermined time frame; 4 to 8 weeks once or twice per week. However, it is still possible to choose the massages apart from counseling. (Counseling opens again from July 2021).
I hope to see you (revisiting) in my practice, or on location.
Enjoy the massages!
