I have a background in the fitness world and have been working as a personal trainer during the last 10 years in combination with the companies I have run, “Hippy Market Sthlm” is one of them (yes, I love Ibiza).
I decided to become a Yoga massage theraphist at Axelsons Institute in Stockholm and founded “Grit & Harmony”, a wellness company with a holistic approach. Also I have attended the education in Functional Fitness through Eleiko and attended the course in Japanese // Tibetan Facelift massage at Axelsons Institute.
In August I am starting my Yoga Teacher training at Urban Om in Stockholm.

“Ibiza is my spiritual home, I have fallen in love with this magical island and am so grateful to be able to collaborate with Ibiza Yoga to bring my massage therapy and creative workshops out to such a unique and beautiful, natural setting.
I have been massaging from a young age, having picked up many techniques from my Indian father including using my feet to massage and walk on the body. Having a deep love of yoga and practising Ashtanga for many years, I was drawn to Ayurvedic Yoga massage because it combined both the benefits of Yoga and Ayurveda to create a very powerful healing massage. Using my natural ability to massage and read the body I can help you to restore balance and wellbeing in mind and body leaving you both re-energised and deeply relaxed at the same time.
For thousands of years, people have turned to the wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga to achieve optimal health in body, mind and soul. These two ancient sister sciences have been practiced continuously since the dawn of human history. Ayurveda is the healing side of Yoga and Yoga is the spiritual side of Ayurveda.
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) combines deep tissue massage with coordinated breath-work and yoga stretching. Similar to Thai massage it is performed on a mat allowing for a full range of stretching. The deep tissue oil massage dissolves physical tension by removing knots and adhesions in the muscles and soft tissues, while the assisted stretches and breathing exercises realign the body and stimulate the natural flow of energy (Prana).
Through synchronised breathing, the receiver is led progressively deeper into assisted yoga stretches that help correct postural imbalances and restore harmony to the subtle energies of the body. These techniques incorporate the use of the hands and feet as tools for massage. The utilisation of the feet allows for deeper and more thorough pressure through long and graceful strokes.
This unique comprehensive approach to the body dissolves physical and emotional blocks, helps detoxify the body, promotes correct posture, improves respiratory patterns, enhances energy levels, and leaves the receiver with a profound sense of .
AYM was developed by Master Kusum Modak of Pune, India, who has tirelessly dedicated her life to creating and spreading this work. She combined her knowledge of Traditional Ayurvedic Massage learned from her teacher and Ayurvedic massage guru Master Lamaye Maharaj with Iyengar Yoga inspired assisted asana learned directly from BKS Iyengar himself to create her own unique approach to Ayurvedic massage.

Ayurvedic yoga massage
The Ayurvedic Massage Jeannette is offering is a is a combination of different techniques, e.g. Ayurvedic and Traditional Thai Massage, Yoga and Rebalancing, using some knowledge of Alexander Technique.
She works with deep and alternating reassuring strokes supported by the use of sesame oil and calamus powder which activates the skin cells, allows firm work and gives you the feeling of an exfoliation.
Stretching is used in order to open joints and ease muscle tensions, conscious breathing while receiving the massage increases your awareness.
Since the treatment takes place on a mat on the floor, the feet can be used as another massage tool, in order to give more pressure, covering a bigger surface, by "walking" on the back, arms, legs, depending on the client.
The whole body massage promotes correct posture, helps to release toxins, leads to tension release, deep relaxation and a better energy flow - and is a wonderful addition to a Yoga practice.
Jeannette is german and lived in Europe and several countries in Asia over the last 12 years. Trained in Traditional Thai Massage in 2001 and Seed Ayurvedic Massage in 2005, she also attended workshops in Reiki, Footreflexology, Mobile Massage and Watsu.
After spending a lot of time in India, where she assisted many times at her favourite massage courses, Jeannette is now feeling at home in Ibiza and is looking forward to give treatments for Ibiza Yoga in her fifth season.
The massage takes either :
approximately 75 minutes including consultation and relaxation and costs €. 90
or 105 minutes including consultation and relaxation costs €.120
I call myself a facilitator or teacher of self-healing to cover the modalities I work with and that work through me. A title that also invites each individual to embark on their own intuitively empowered journey to healing. I am eternally grateful for my purpose and gift to share healing and blessed to be so deeply guided and supported in this journey. I give thanks for the wisdom that has been bestowed upon me from many formal teachers and training in India, Guatemala, Peru, and England, as well as non-formal teachers, that show up everyday! I give gratitude to the plants, my medicine, my guides in spirit, and those in life lessons and my own personal healing which has brought me to a place of remembering who I am and why I am here.
I am passionate about my calling from the heart to share healing practices. I know the great benefits and how holistically we can heal the body, mind, and spirit. I love working with energy and see great importance in recognising that everything is a vibration of energy and by aiding the flow of energy through our Chakras and bodies we can notice a number of improvements at various levels. I work on the basis that everybody is different, due to individual past experience, wearing emotions in our bodies and having dominating Chakras and varied lifestyles we experience a different world to each other through our minds and bodies.
Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage is a mixture of Energy Healing, Yoga, Acupressure, Meditation, Ayurveda, and Chiropractic and has been nicknamed “Lazy Yoga” due to some stretches that are used and the spiritual benefits, healing at a deep level. It works by releasing energy blockages and physically stretching the body restoring health. These Massages are floor based on a futon or mat with the client fully-clothed in comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. I work with my own body and body weight in a rhythmic, meditative state throughout the treatment, I work intuitively, so find slower movements allow me to go deeper without a shock response from the body, working energy lines and using fingers, thumbs, palms, elbows, feet, and knees to offer deep healing, relaxing massage to balance and restore health.

Reiki is a fully clothed, non-touch treatment where universal energy is transmitted to the client using my hands. All practitioners work slightly different but I tend to use the main 9 Chakras (spinning vortexes of energy within us) and endocrines in the body and focus on those points to send energy to restore any imbalances. Balancing the Chakras aids and can heal every aspect of one’s life, on a mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual level. Even without any obviously current issues everyone can benefit from Reiki energy healing as the more balanced we are the more energy will have and the better we feel.
