You have recently started offering massages in our Werkplaats and Badplaats, what kind of massages are they?
In Badplaats, I offer two types of massage: one to calm and relax and one to feel amazingly energized. I use techniques such as: Shiatsu, Swedish massage, Hawaiian massage and some Thai Yoga stretches. Perfect for the guests of the Volkshotel. I also provide short chair massages in the hotel lobby on Fridays.
How did you start as a masseuse?
I always loved to give massages to family and friends after I finished my training, several workshops and courses. In April 2012, I finally got the nerve to start my own business: ‘We Like Massage’ – a mobile massage company.
Why do you think you and Volkshotel are a good match?
My credo at We Like Massage is being ‘A mobile massage company for awesome people. Starting a revolution, one massage at a time’. So for me this seems like the perfect fit with all the different guests and visitors of Volkshotel. I’m also a badass person, so yeah, it’s a pretty good match.
Who is Barbara?
She’s a very socially active, bubbly and warm person, who loves to give back to the community. Barbara has recently been busy with a Facebook community, where sick people can ask for help with small things – such as buying groceries. It is a great success and has received a lot of attention in the Dutch media. Look it up: Ziekenboeg Amsterdam.
A sneak peak at the types of massages Barbara offers:
We all know what that is.
Do you want to relax but still want a firmer massage, because you also feel your muscles need it?
Think vacation, palm trees and pina coladas. Have a slow-flow and get moisturised whilst you’re at it. Just say ALOHA!
Wake up Wanda!
