Ingrid

Massage therapist and yoga teacher

Having lived in Ibiza every summer for the past ten years, Ingrid joined the Ibiza Balance team in 2015. She strives to improve her client’s lives through the use of different techniques, while continuing to learn as much as she can about the body.

Ingrid’s specialty is a full body massage experience, fusing different techniques including Thai, Californian, deep tissue and reflex, finishing with a face lift-up. She’s also popular with Ibiza Balance clients for her deeply therapeutic and relaxing massages with energetic healing techniques and is qualified in a host of other styles: holistic, foot, Thai, hot stones, deep tissue, detox and Asian massage.

A qualified Alliance Yoga teacher, Ingrid practices what she preaches, using yoga and meditation alongside swimming and dancing to maintain her own balance in Ibiza. “There are so many magical places here,” she says, citing Es Vedra lookout, Benirras beach, Las, and Cap des Falco sunsets as some of her favourite places.”

Johannes

Personal trainer and nutritionist

Passionate about any and every form of fitness, Johannes is as qualified as they come, with degrees in Nutrition and Science, Fitness Economy, is certifications from the renowned Yoga Alliance, Les Mills and more.

After living in Ibiza and working with the Ibiza Balance team for just over a year, Johannes says the highlight of his work is seeing his clients get results, and more importantly, seeing them happy. “For me, every hour is a challenge, but the job is so diverse that I never get bored and I never stop learning,” he says.

In addition to nutritional support, Johannes offers his clients a range of training options, including Pilates, Yoga, Body Pump, TRX, Nordic Walking and much more. In his own time, he keeps on the healthy tip, hiking, cross biking or wave surfing (when he can!) and also practices yoga and meditation.

Aleksandra

Personal spa assistant

Working on a day-to-day basis to coordinate many clients and therapists is not an easy job on an island like Ibiza, but Aleksandra excels with the challenge.

“By profession I’m a master of pharmaceutical engineering,” she tells us. “At our new base – Med Spa Ibiza in Marina Botafoch – I really have the chance to use my knowledge to improve the service, which I’m very grateful for.” At the same time, she values the customer feedback she receives on a daily basis. “It’s a wonderful feeling that really makes me love my job.”

Outside of the clinic, Aleksandra loves watching sunsets and taking long walks in search of new areas and secret beaches. “I believe you can find calm in the quiet,” she says. “In order to balance I make a moment for myself, to do yoga, read a book, take a walk – something that allows me to be left with my own thoughts.”

Miriam

Massage therapist

With a genuine passion for helping her clients feel better – be it via a therapeutic massage to ease pain or for overall relaxation – qualified massage therapist Miriam is renowned as one of the best in her field on the island.

A long-standing member of the Ibiza Balance team, Miriam has been using her healing hands to deliver Shiatsu, Traditional Thai massage and deep tissue massages to Ibiza Balance clients since 2010. She is also trained in Quiromassage and pre-natal massage and says she loves discovering the island through the wonderful places she goes to treat clients.
