This is for YOU. Medical Massage. Bound Bodywork. Repterapi (therapeutic rope). Hypnosis. They are all ways to serve. To be a guiding hand on your journey. A safe space to let the guard down and just rest, or to face old fears, or to experience something completely new. The session work is my exploration in how to serve another in a one-on-one meeting. What I offer is the expertise that I’ve built up over a lifetime. As a lesson, or an experience, or something in-between. Selected, tailored, and curated just for you. You pay for my time, so I can focus on you.

Bound Bodywork - Bound Bodywork is my project started on Bali during the winter of 2016. It aims to translate and share the therapeutic rope practice I have developed in Sweden. It springs from the Japanese rope art of Kinbaku infused with modern modalities working on trauma, consent and sexuality. Repterapi (SWE) - The idea of therapeutic ropes occurred to me many years ago, as people started to contact me about their traumatic experiences. They were looking to learn how to trust and surrender again, and ropes became a somatic way to approach it. It was stories about burn-outs, abuses, and emotions running rampage in their bodies. It took me a few years to structure my knowledge to create this what I've decided to call "Repterapi" or therapeutic ropes. This is a written description of my work in Swedish. Medicinsk massage (SWE) - I studied medical massage therapy full time for a year in Stockholm, Sweden. Learning about the anatomy and movements of the body. This is my summary of what I learnt - written in Swedish after I finished my education.
In search for awe (2020) - Awe is more complicated—awe as in both awful and awesome. At first, I thought about it as a thin line or a sweet-spot between awful and awesome. Now I realize that it is both at once. Where pain becomes pleasure and pleasure becomes pain, and I want and don't want something at the same time. Where I no longer know how-to or can choose. It's where I have to surrender or, metaphorically, die. Book thoughts: In an Unspoken Voice (2019) - I've recently been reading this newer book by Peter A. Levine on "how the body releases trauma and restores goodness.". It feels like a follow-up on one of my previous favourite books of his, Walking the Tiger: Healing Trauma, as it goes deeper into how the body, mind and spirit interrelate. To put into perspective, I see Peter A. Levine's work as groundbreaking because he bridges the science of the brain with knowledge of a bodyworker. Compared to another of my heroes, Judith Lewis Herman, whom more or less defined the concept of PTSD, that focuses on how to work with trauma in various forms of talk-based therapies. And you nervous? (2019) - Then you are most likely tensed in your body too.
Many session first-timers tell me that they are nervous. Usually, it was excitement that turned into nervousness as they approached the session. The bodily response to nervousness and enthusiasm are more or less the same. The heart rate rises, first sweat occurs, and the muscle starts to tense. Your nerve system is activated or aroused in biological terms. The interpretation of the experience happens later in your head — anyhow enough nerdiness about the biochemistry of the human body.
A recurring client suggested that I should offer a combined session, half massage and half rope. To first massage the body to help it relax and then use bondage to let the mind to surrender. So far, I've shared a cup of tea and some small talk with first-timers to help them land in the room, feel safe, and trust me. However, massage let you feel how my body interacts with your body, and that is closer to rope bondage than tea and small talk. Because ultimately a bodywork session is more a meeting between two bodies in motion, and two nerve systems that develop a non-verbal language together. Starting this way will help your nervousness and body tension to melt away.
We gave it a go, and it was a success. So now I offer the combo session for everyone.
