About me

Kostas Stavridis

I was born and raised in Larissa, Greece in 1982. I have always felt a deep desire to help people and this was originally expressed by my interest in and love for cooking which led me to become a chef. I very quickly became fascinated with the healing properties of food and the healing process of people. During my journey of self-discovery I came to Reiki through my Aikido practice in 2008, in Athens, Greece.

From that point on I became very involved in holistic ways of healing and soon after I became aware of my desire to utilise my hands more actively in healing. At the same time I got fascinated by the practice of bodywork. In 2016 I came across Rolfing® Structural Integration and very quickly experienced the method’s benefits. Thanks to the holistic, process-based approach towards improving a person’s structure and function, and the use of Gravity as a tool, I find Rolfing SI to be effective on many different levels and in many different ways. For me the most interesting (transformation/benefit/change) I experienced through the Rolfing process was that the changes on my structure have improved the way I experienced my life. I found myself stressing less and at the same time being more effective at doing my work, plus I felt I could manage inter-personal relationships in a more relaxed manner. In 2017 I joined the Spectrum Rolfing Seminar and in 2018 I finished my training as a certified Rolfer™ at the European Rolfing Association in Munich. I have been practicing in the Netherlands ever since.
