Nasma Life. I met her a couple of months ago when I was lucky to receive a massage at her beautiful place. I was pretty amazed! Felt so good and relaxed after the massage. When I travelled around in Thailand I took Thai Yoga Massages very often, but I really love Victoria's style. Like she says: massage should be like a dance between two people. How did she get into the world of massage and vegan food? How did you start your business: Nasma Life? I moved to Amsterdam mid 2012 from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, after having lived & worked there for a year during my travels within South East Asia from 2010. Immersed in Thai Massage and other Eastern holistic therapies during the time I was there – Thai yoga massage resonated with me. I was blown away on how good my body felt during and after a session. From there the idea of Nasma Life happened pretty organically when I arrived in Amsterdam, asking myself ‘what next?’ With the desire to dive into learning this healing practice, coupled with the fact I love to travel & I love South East Asia, it was a really nice way to still stay connected to that vibe and continue to travel back to Thailand (and surrounds) each year. Nasma Life started around the base of Thai yoga massage therapy – travelling back and forth to Chiang mai, Thailand and exploring the different practices with this form of body work. Through the development of my practice, came lifestyle changes, growth and exploration. From there, veganism became a big focus for me and with that the creativity in food preparation and conscious consumption. Can you explain something about the benefits of Thai Yoga Massage? It is a practice to experience more so than to theorize. To explain it in words, the first word that comes to mind is ‘openness’ – on a physical and with that an energetic level. It is not a static practice; it is a very rhythmic movement between giver and receiver – in this dance flow. The whole body moves and you feel this kind of stir of energy and release in a very calm rhythmic way. The beauty of Thai massage working on a floor matt, opens you up to a full range of movement and space – openness! There is beauty and healing in being able to stretch and move the body in its full range, generating energy flow in all directions. Each practice is unique as we bring together our own unique bodies and energy into play.
