Massage therapist & Structural Bodyworker (MNMF)
Before becoming masseur, for many years I have practiced Aikido and sword fencing. I thought of them as ways of expressing myself in movement, but also as a way of living and keeping my body, mind and spirit in good condition. But I felt that I was missing something. I felt there was lack of balance. And when I heard somewhere, from some martial artist, that knowledge of how to fight should be opposed and completed with knowledge of how to heal – I knew what I had to do.
Thomas got his diploma in massage therapy in 2009 in Poland and became certified Structural Bodyworker in 2014. He had his private practice in Poland and now he’s practicing at Bergen Body Work.
Currently his main area of interest in the field of massage is chronic pain studies and Bio-Psycho-Social model of pain, which utilises latest discoveries in the science that describe pain as multifactorial and multidimensional phenomena, where pain can be aggravated and prolonged by stress, difficult family situation, insufficient sleep, suboptimal eating habits and many others.
In his practice he uses myofascial release, deep tissues massage and trigger point therapy based in meaningful and honest relationship with patient, who is the centerpiece of the treatment.
