AVE Massage. The approach


AVE, HELLO – Massage therapy is a body language for appeasement and inner peace. Only the precision of the message from the body can bring the required quality, which means a specific attention and a different perception for each body, spirit and being as a whole.

Annick Van Essche*, founder of AVE Massage, got inspired in her art of massaging through training in various workshops. Very early she was drawn to the art of dance that now gives her the grace to her movements, of music -transcending the mind for the unspoken sensitivity- as well as the art of acting bringing a third dimension to the dance and the music by a deeper perception of the other one, like customizing each time a new character for a different play. Through acting she also deepened the discipline and dedication to what she does.
Obviously for Annick, practicing massage became a continuity to her curriculum, a alchemy from dance, music and acting to serve the well being.

AVE Massage is the ripening of a practice integrating this holistic concept. It’s a movement towards the other, a careful greeting, a wish for peace and tranquility, a gift for well being, modestly helping towards our natural quest for happiness that each of us is seeking.
