Welcome to Integrative Body Therapy.

Based on over 25 years of exploration in healing and the merging of varied forms of bodywork and therapy, East and West, ancient and new, creating a contemporary approach to well-being.

Niklas Spitz is a skilled massage therapist and intuitive healer offering a deep bodywork experience, utilising disciplines from ancient cultures to contemporary healing practices.

Integrative Body Therapy sessions facilitate the recipient’s innate capacity to heal through deep relaxation – letting go – and thus homeostasis. A session on the table, or on the futon, may include varied soft and deep tissue manipulation; rhythmic techniques to reconnect disassociated parts of the whole through the autonomic nervous system; dynamic stretches, meridian pressure points, muscular and skeletal manipulation, and balancing chi or energy flow.  The aim is to bring the recipient to a state of integrity and facilitate positive change – physiologically, emotionally, psycho-spiritually – according to what is presenting during each session.

Niklas has been a certified shiatsu practitioner since 1995 (London) and a licensed massage therapist in California since 1998 (Esalen Institute, Post Ranch Inn, Ventana Inn, and private practices.) He has traveled and trained extensively between England, Thailand, Japan and California.

He is currently in El Pescadero, BCS, Mexico.

Nik is a talented and knowledgeable practitioner who finds the balance between strength and sensitivity. His experience and intuitive ability make him a superior therapist and I enjoy his work very much.

Niklas is a skilled, gifted and highly attuned practitioner.
This Zen Shiatsu massage came at one of the most intense and challenging time of my life. I am grieving, exhausted and my nervous system is in shock.
Nik was able to hold space and be with all of it. His intuitive approach and competence allowed me to relax and trust fully the process. I experienced great releases at all levels, from laughter (first time ever!) to cry, from silence to sounds emerging.
At the end of the session I was in a place of deep stillness and peace.
The quality of Nik’s listening and tracking is remarkable.
Last but not least, after many sleepless nights, I finally slept last night.
Half way through the massage, I spoke and said “I hope you are on Yelp. I want to write a review. People need to know about you!” Here I am! (Yelp Reviews)
I highly recommend you give yourself the treat of Nik’s touch.

I can’t say enough about Nik’s style of bodywork.
As a healer myself the first thing I look for is someone who really understands the dynamics of how the body works and someone who not only works according to what they see, but lean in intuitively and work according to what they feel. Time and again I can rely on him to tap into just what my body needs to regain and achieve balance. He is intuitive, thorough and effective in his approach and in a class of his own.
I highly recommend him to both my clients and personal friends.
