Pieter Maritz - Deep Tissue, Holistic Massage, Myofascial release
I am a massage therapist with a special interest and passion for mindful, embodied touch.
My approach is to treat the body as a sum of our existence, containing layer upon layer of our physical and emotional experiences. Massage and bodywork, for me, is an invitation to enquire into these layers.
Both deeply relaxing and grounding, embodied massage also invites you to come into conscious awareness of holding patterns and deep tensions within your body and offers you a safe supporting space to release that which might not be serving your fullest potential.
It is a process of discovering the being beneath the story.
I hold certification in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue massage and Myofascial Release therapy but also draw on, amongst others, Rosen Method Bodywork and Trigger Point Therapy to tailor a treatment that meets your needs.
I am a member of CThA and is dedicated to my ongoing apprenticeship in Rosen Method Bodywork.
In my spare time, I love researching all forms of biodynamic therapy, practice Hatha Yoga and mindfulness meditation, and for the past 6 years, I have worked with sacred plant medicines in Peru.

I cannot recommend Pieter highly enough. The treatment I received was specific and targeted, gentle yet powerful and truly holistic. I felt more relaxed, comfortable and grounded after the session compared with all previous bodywork I have experienced over many years. I would definitely recommend him to anybody wanting more than just your average massage. Same again next week please!
Pieter was extremely professional, he took the time to understand my needs and carried out an excellent treatment. I'm a female massage therapist myself and find it difficult to find someone that understands my needs but Pieter really did. He works slowly with great presence and pressure. I highly recommend booking a treatment with him.
Honestly, this was a fantastic massage. Deeply relaxing and attentive. I felt incredibly still and at peace afterwards. Such a treat! Pieter creates such a warm, comfortable and inviting atmosphere and somehow just knew exactly what I needed. Very highly recommended indeed!
