Benoit Pilate, massotherapist at la Maison du Massage

I discovered massage more than 10 years ago, but my learning and my evolution continues unabated, because I am always in quest of knowledge to develop my technique.

I am Belgian and I am 42 years old. My professional life is 50% massage and 50% chemistry (in a pharmaceutical company).

In 2005 I get knocked down by a car, no good luck. But this accident puts me in search of something else, self-knowledge, presence in the present moment, opening of the heart, ... here are some objects that I put in my way.

I learned Thai massage with Alain Daligault in Belgium and it's in Thailand, with Pichest Boonthumme , which I perfected Pichest is a reference in Thailand. And I joined him five times to learn from him.

Shiatsu is with Sensei Yuchi Kawada that I trained over four years. And today still in perfecting with Simeon Moutaftchieff.

I practiced Vipassana meditation a lot in the tradition of Theravada Buddhism in Belgium ( Dhammagroup , in Thailand ( Doï Suthep ) and in Burma ( Panditarama ). The longest silent retreat I did lasted 50 days.
