De Aanpak: treatment of pain complaints and being overworked

I get excited by people . . .

. . . asking specific questions. For instance that they suffer (sometimes years) from ‘something’. That ‘something’ has been treated endlessly without much progress. Most of the time these complaints started after an accident, an injury, a misstep, after a period of very hard working, after an incident.
These questions trigger me and make me awake.
Of course next I will ask you some questions and then we start working.

Massage practice

First of all I listen to your wishes and questions . . . . I take your story about possible complaints seriously, even when it seems to make no sense. Most of the time during the intake connections between the actual situation and certain experiences in the past come to surface.


Next we go to work.

During the massage I will respond to your reactions and observations. The entire physiology will be put in motion in a gentle way. During the massage the entire body will be involved.

Massage offers excellent possibilities to recover from whiplash, burnout, chronic headaches and pains due to injuries and overload.

When you are confident after your first visit we make up plan for recovery with massage, and some simple excercises for you to do at home .

About ‘de Aanpak’

Marcel Davids (1956)

‘My career has as its giding work with matter.’
I worked as a gardiner, farmer, carpenter and a painter.
In addition, as a career counselor, branch manager of an employment agency , professional organizer and color consultant.

How did I become a masseur? During movement lessons of my training at the Human Development Counseling Foundation several students told me that me touching them was a pleasant experience. I decided to make touching my profession. I became a qualified sports masseur and continued with specilisations in chairmassages, triggerpoint massage and built up a ten years experience.

I’m fascinated by beauty. The beauty of the mounatins and the sea, of plants and animals, the colours in the sky.
Beside that my passion goes equally to human creations like archtecture, music and science.
For me the human body is a major achievement of architecture and I love working with it in the massages.

My motivation is offering optimal service.


I have a very practical profession, because I never have to worry forgetting my tools. I have them always with me. The other day I was visiting Amsterdam, walking in the Westerparc to the totally redesigned area of the former Wester Gascompany where I met a woman walking with a stick. While walking, talking I offered her a massage on a chair of the Espressofabric. I accepted her paiment of one espresso with...
