Be-Balanced Massage

You deserve to relax


My name is Marco Vottero. I am a licensed massage practitioner in classical massage, deep tissue massage, hot stone massage and complaint-oriented massage. I will expand this with other massages in future. I obtained my massage diploma in 2006 upon completion of my training at the Leffelaar Opleidingen/Veerman College massage academy. At this moment I am studying at Esoterra Massage vakopleiding to become a massage therapist.

I have always taken a keen interest in all aspects of massage and the positive effect it has on mind and body.  Every time I see my clients leave visibly relaxed, I just love my profession more. Maybe I can welcome you soon for a massage! (Please note I do not give erotic massages)


Increasing demands are made upon people who find themselves in a state of a constant rush….not just at work but also in their spare time. Does ‘raising the bar’ sound familiar? This results in stress, less energy, lack of sleep, tense muscles or headaches. No time to listen to the signals of your body. We eventually can feel depressed and can get caught in a downward spiral. Time to take action! Quality time with yourself! A massage is one of them and benefits your whole body and mind. The world keeps spinning by itself in the meantime.


  • It provides inner peace
  • Gets rid of toxins
  • Relaxes the muscles
  • Can ease muscle pain
  • Provides more energy
  • Stimulates blood circulation/pressure
  • Increases the oxytocin hormone level (relaxes body and mind)
  • Triggers the nervous system
  • Stimulates the metabolism
  • Affects the lymph system circulation
  • Helps to improve the  quality of your sleep
  • Helps to relief lower back pain and tension in the neck muscles


The massages take place in a separate massage practice at my home location on the East docks Island (Oosterdokseiland) in between Amsterdam Central Station and the NeMo museum. Easy to reach by public transport. You can park your car at the Parking Garage Oosterdok. An elevator is also available.
Before the massage starts, there will be a short intake (this will not be included in the massage time and is included in the price). 90 Minutes of massage is full 90 minutes of massage. During this intake I will be able to get an image of what your purpose for the massage is and if there are any issues I should take notice of. Just for relaxation after, for instance, gym, sore muscles or body discomforts that need special attention.


Unfortunately I cannot offer massage in the event of: influenza, total exhaustion, carbuncles, contagious skin diseases, severe vascular disease, fever, use of antibiotics, and thrombosis.

Some parts of the body I do not massage in cases of:

  • Injury
  • Inflammation
  • Severe varicose veins
  • Body parts being treated by a physiotherapist unless advised by the therapist.

Please note: Personal hygiene is preferred.

Truly great massage, nice flow, relaxing environment and strong, soothing hands. I will go back definitely   Steven
Missed my connection, lost my luggage… not a relaxed way to start my meeting in Amsterdam. Marco’s friendly approach made me feel right at home and the massage he gave me ensured my meeting went great Krist Sörenson, Copenhagen
Brilliant and relaxing massage during a busy weekend! I can highly recommend it! Thanks again Marco!! John
After an exhausting working week, I decided to contact Marco for his 90 min sensitive massage.  I always felt I was in the hands of a caring person.  Thank you Marco. See you soon! Juan
I am a masseur myself and have done many exchanges with other masseurs. Marco is the best! I always look for a massage that is more or less the same as the one I give. With Marco you can be sure of a quality massage with dedication and care! I highly recommend him! René
Marco offered me an hour of pure relaxation, and happiness. After a long week of meetings, stress, deadlines, it was all I needed. He was a great professional in his attitude, and in the way he offered his service. I strongly recommend it to anyone that looks for a quality massage Apostolos
I totally agree with the previous comments, besides Marco is very friendly he takes time for an intake and the massages met my expectations. Almost fel asleep. The lovely room helped to relax as well. For sure i will recommend him to family and friends. Good value for money. KR Lex Lex
