About me and the way I work


My name is Mariam Nadjmabadi, I am a Massage therapist, Acupuncturist and Naturopath (Heilpraktiker) from Germany with a work experience of over 19 years in the field of therapeutic bodywork.

​In the early nineties I followed a training in Rebalancing Massage in India and Italy where I studied and experienced the connection between the emotional and physical body and how both aspects influence each other.

In the following years I studied more therapeutic massage techniques that support the body in finding its own balance again.

To deepen my knowledge about the human Physiology and Anatomie I studied for 

2 years at the Heilpraktikerschule ad vitalis in Berlin to become a certified Heilpraktiker/Naturopath which is comparable with the Study of Foundation of Western Medicine in the NL ,  while I was working in a neurologic/psychatric Clinic in Berlin as an assistant nurse and trainee. In 2016 I recieved my Certificate in Western Basic Medicine, Medische Basis Kennis MBK at HBO - Level, from the TCMA -  Amsterdam



Since Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) always fascinated me in its holistic way to look at a person I also successfully accomplished a 3 Year Study in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture at the ABZ Süd in Freiburg/Germany . 


In order to work also in the Netherlands as an Acupuncturist I also studied Traditional Chinese Medicine at the SHEN ZHOU OPEN UNIVERSITY in Amsterdam from which I successfully graduated in 2018. 


I followed additional courses :

"Abdominal Acupuncture" with Prof.Dr. Tian-Jun Wang ; 

"Management of RSI with TCM" with Dr. Sun Peilin ; 

"TCM for the Treatment of Gynaecological Conditions" with Prof. Mei Xing


Currently I am studying "Master Tungs Magic Points" - Acupuncture.


Acupuncture  treatments are partly covered by most of the dutch health insurances. 

Please check for this with your professional healthcare organisation.


To specialize my skills in Therapeutic Bodywork, I successfully accomplished the following studies: 

  • Deep Tissue Massage & Myofascial Release  Level 1 & 2 with Art Riggs /Amsterdam-NL (80 hours)
  • Myofascial Release Therapy Level 1 - 4 at the DGMR  Germany (2 years)
  • Thai Yoga Massage WATPO - Innsbruck/Austria (40 hours)
  • Akupunktmassage nach PENZEL (APM) 1.Degree in  Heyen -Germany (40 hours)                 
  • Dorn Breuss Technik  Level 1 & 2 at Thalamus München-Germany (16 hours)
  • TUI NA Traditional Chinese Massage at EIOM MUENCHEN (1 Year)


Further I am trained and certified in Hawaiian Healing Bodywork and Pregnancy Massage 


Several Meditationretreats and psychotherapeutic Studies/Workshops (Balint-Interventionstechnik; 2 years Therapist Training at the HUMANIVERSITY/Egmond an Zee ... ) that I followed in the last 25 years in Europe and India gave me the "tools" to work in a more holistic and emphatic way with my clients, because beside the physiological part during the treatment it is important to stay open and connected in order to understand and feel the clients needs, to listen to the body, which many times shows much more then words express..

Everyone is unique and needs a personal treatment

At the beginning of each appointment I will have a  intake talk with you to find out what your needs/problematic areas are. If you come for an Acupuncture or Cupping Treatment this will involve Tongue and Pulse Diagnosis. I use profound knowledge that i gained in my western and eastern medicine studies to help you in getting back your physical and emotional balance . After the treatment I will - if necessary - show you some stretching exercises that you could do at home or work to keep your body healthy, relaxed and at ease.
