So that you can live an authentic life with more (feminine) energy, self-love, creativity and more relaxation in your body.

For the woman who desires more depth in herself, in life and her relationships. Who is open to change and ready to pay more attention to themselves.

Let’s ask Bo
Feed your body instead of (only) filling
My mission is to make the world a bit healthier through preventive health care. The Netherlands describes health as ‘the absence of disease’. However, I think, both from bbb, health, you feel energetic, can enjoy your life and have the flexibility to get back into balance after a period of imbalance. Because imbalance is just as much a part of life as balance. No rain, no flowers.
Everything revolves around energy in our body. When low-grade inflammation takes over, such as a “pain-here-pain-there” or vague complaints like fatigue and hormonal problems, energy seeps into the immune system to the detriment of your energy level throughout the day. Because the immune system always takes precedence. The immune system is equal to survival.
In a healthy situation, the brain and muscles mainly receive energy during the day and the immune system at night. Simply because both systems demand too much energy.
An example: flu is a typical case of the immune system attacking during the day. You are tired and brain activity is lousy. Fortunately, because otherwise the brain would beat our immune system. As a result, an enemy (bacteria, virus or other pathogen) wins and we are not going to survive.
In short, our wonderful immune system is a fantastic mechanism that has a good right to draw almost all energy to itself. But… If your body is constantly pulled out of balance by chronic stress, (too many) eating moments, (excessive) exercise, (too) little exercise, wrong nutrition and too little relaxation, the immune system must continuously come and take a look during the day to see if it is working properly. going well. As a result, the immune system wins the energy tussle with the brain. Which results in low (brain) energy. Think of a foggy brain, poor concentration, energy dips and mood swings.
If this takes too long, a chronic energy shortage can arise. Or a shortage of energy to make all other systems in our body run smoothly. Because stress*, whatever it is, always takes precedence. And to realize that stress response, other systems in our body are deprived. Such as developing sex hormones and reproduction or skin hair and nail growth.
* I’m talking about chronic stress here: such as financial worries, family problems, overtraining, being overworked or a continuous negative self-image. Or stress that doesn’t play every day, but slumbers under the surface. Not so much ‘healthy’ temporary tension as for giving an important presentation or cycling during rush hour in Amsterdam. This may just be there.
In short, it’s all about energy.
By feeding your body with nutrition that you need at a cellular level and being willing to adjust your lifestyle, you will go a long way! Because it’s actually not difficult at all, you just have to know which buttons to turn to get your body (again) into action or rest mode. I can help you with this. With a wide range of knowledge, practical tips, tasty recipes and a touch of humor, I can take you into the health jungle and create a diet that works and suits you.

Holistic Therapy | Daphne
Intuitive treatments on a holistic level and transformational Cupping
If you feel that your problems are not being solved, and you can’t get out of it with regular care, it could be because you’re not looking at the right place. By working mentally, emotionally and physically, we get to the core faster and we can solve the problems faster. You can feel better than you feel right now. You can get rid of your pain and heal your (mental, emotional and physical) wounds. You just need to know what to look at. Through a treatment or trajectory you come back into your own strength.
The five holistic levels
Holism comes from the Greek word Holos, which means ‘whole’. The human being is one whole, you have a physical body, your thoughts, your emotions, your mind and your soul. We call this within holism the five levels. Because I treat in a holistic way, when investigating the request for help I look at the total picture on the five holistic levels:
- Physical (physical)
- Energetic (energy)
- Mental (thoughts and beliefs)
- Spiritual (cause/karma)
- Emotional (feelings)
How does a treatment work?
As a holistic therapist, I will look at you as a whole, because everything is inextricably linked. I look at the different factors and how they influence each other and adjust the treatment accordingly. Always with an eye for you and your individual needs and wishes. The treatment or trajectory therefore starts with an intake interview to find out what I can do for you. We will therefore discuss the various methods that I can use to really get to the core of your complaint.
Methods and Tools
There are various methods and tools that I will apply during the treatment. You can think of:
- Intuitive coaching conversation
- Innergy Waters
- Reiki (master)
- Emotional Freedom Technique
- Systemic Work (Family Constellations)
- Sedona Method
- Meditation/ Visualization
- Insight Cards/ Coaching Cards
- Singing Bowls/Sound Journey/Koshi
- Transformational Cupping®
Transformational cupping is a very nice, effective treatment that helps the body cleanse waste, adhesions and tensions. It ensures smooth muscles and connective tissue, good blood circulation and tighter skin. It also affects your mental balance, because emotionally the treatment can release a lot because everything is going better. So you literally and figuratively get better by being in your own skin.
How does cupping work?
Everything is set in motion, because cupping vacuums the skin and releases the blockages underneath. This happens not only superficially, but also deeper down. This allows the blood to flow freely again and there is room for oxygen-rich blood. Knots, waste products and adhesions are loosened, all waste products are removed and everything is circulated again and fed with oxygen-rich fresh blood.
The treatment can sometimes be quite sensitive or intense. This is often because the blockages have been in your body for a long time, so your body can resist releasing it. My motto is: Where there is resistance, there is growth. Of course I don’t do anything you’re not ready for. I think it is important that you feel safe with me and therefore provide a relaxed setting so that you can fully relax during the treatment.
You will often notice relief immediately after the treatment. It also continues to work after the treatment. You can therefore experience fatigue afterwards and it can feel sore. However, this differs per person. I recommend drinking enough water the day after, which helps to remove the waste. And listen to your body completely. It works on all holistic levels.
When can you contact me?
You can contact me with specific complaints or if you feel that holistic therapy or cupping can mean something to you. Not sure what yet? Then we discuss together what you need at that moment. For cupping I can also work completely intuitively and detect your blockages.
Holistic coach & nutritional scientist | Josefien Kleijweg
With a background in nutritional sciences and as a former professional (youth) handball player, my iron discipline and perfectionism were often rewarded more than not. The harder I pushed, the harder I worked, and the better my performances became. Until years later when I embarked on a journey to become a holistic coach, I was compelled to consider multiple aspects of health (and happiness). For the first time, I started to ‘feel’ instead of ‘think.’ It was challenging because what does it mean to ‘feel’? I had never done that before. And it was confronting. By truly listening to my body and not pushing through, I realized that it might not be ‘normal’ to regularly experience a bloated stomach, frequent fatigue, concentration problems, occasional unexplained sadness, and having troubled skin and an irregular cycle.
My selective focus on counting calories and sports, and achieving measurable performances and goals, expanded. I increasingly realized that more seemed to be needed to feel vital and happy. Health includes not only a physical element but also ’emotional, mental, and spiritual elements.’ Do you suffer from skin issues, digestive problems, fatigue, difficulty losing weight, mood swings, pessimism, heaviness, concentration or memory problems, struggle with focus, or often feel ’empty’ or restless? By using the complaint as valuable information, this can provide insight into the true underlying needs and desires. As a holistic coach and nutritional scientist, I want to guide you through this process, looking at you as a whole. By going back to the core of your complaint, it can be healed in a sustainable way. Conscious (lifestyle) choices will be used as medicine. This may include practices like breathing exercises, a movement plan, mindfulness, sleep optimization, and/or nutritional advice. My approach always begins with a comprehensive interview. In addition to guidance, lab tests may provide additional insights. During the first consultation, we can decide which tests may be beneficial in your personal situation.
Some of the tests I frequently use include
- Allergy or intolerance testing
- Mineral and vitamin testing
- Omega 3 testing
- Stool analysis
- Stress and relaxation tests based on coherence and breathing
Together, we investigate the root cause behind your complaint(s) to determine the path forward. With practical tools, a dose of patience, and trust, not only will symptoms disappear, but you will gain control over your own health in the long term!
“Life is not something you can make, but it is something you can steer” – Dr. Richard de Leth
If you have questions, want more information, or would like to have an initial discussion, feel free to reach out! I’m always available, and I’m happy to make time for you. Send me a message.
Holistic coach & private yoga teacher | Rhodé
As a woman we can often juggle different roles – as mother, partner, career woman and caretaker, which can sometimes make us lose sight of ourselves. But you deserve to put yourself first and embrace yourself in your feminine power. That is why I combine 1:1 coaching with 1:1 yoga to support you in finding balance and harmony. So take a moment for yourself, think about what you really want and let me support you on your path of transformation. I look forward to working with you and helping you feel like a woman again and become (even) happier. Shall we embark on this journey together?
Why a holistic coach or choose me?
As a holistic coach, I look beyond just the mental plane. I believe that many complaints such as anxiety, stress, gloom and uncertainty arise from other levels, namely the emotional and energetic. That is why we will not only talk about this, but we will also feel through energetic and systemic methods. My vision is to let you get in touch with yourself again, in which you know and feel that you are good as you are. There will be resistance from limiting beliefs about yourself, namely based on your upbringing and experiences you have had. This has led you to live these beliefs, start protecting yourself and get out of touch with who you really are. I’d love to help you on your journey back to yourself.
