Tauranga Massage

Handré Zaaiman

Handré is the founder of the Tauranga Massage Collective. He has more than 15 years experience as a Therapeutic Massage Therapist. He is also a yoga teacher and is passionate about helping people live as pain-free as can be and manage it through yoga, breathing and movement. "My consultation process and treatment involves getting to the source of your pain/discomfort and working WITH YOU to achieve your goals".

"I help clients with chronic and acute muscle pain, soft-tissue injuries, increased sports performance and recovery, postural issues, headaches/migraines, stress/tension, tiredness/fatigue, and much more. I do this by using remedial massage techniques with a deep-tissue style pressure for therapeutic results. Utilizing various methods such as trigger point therapy, clinical vacuum cupping, range of motion and postural assessments".

Through his massage practice and yoga Handré can help clients on a 1 on 1 basis and believes that Yoga is the ultimate movement medicine. "Yoga gives you the power and is an excellent antidote to our modern day issues of stress, pain and consumption."

Coming from a Sport Science background, he has a great understanding of anatomy, kinesiology and biomechanics, and how to promote healthy movements within the body.

“I bring together the east and western understanding of the body-mind complex and take the best of the two worlds.  Promoting well-being, alignment and relaxation to my patients”.

Luiz understands that there is more to pain than the affected area, but that physical and emotional limitations can lead to stress, anxiety and lack of self-confidence.

“I want to help you be at your best, so you can do what you love and share the happiness with your family, friends and whomever is around you”.
