Team

Stress Free Zone was created by Anne Vidanne, Judith Arupa and Daniela (who left the project later) back in 2003. When their ways crossed in the middle of Alentejo, the three of them had been in a deep change on professional and personal life style.

This emphasized and gave them the power and idea to create this space, where now, 16 years later, art, technique, wisdom and love are integrated in order to bring you all the wellbeing you need, through massage treatments and therapy.. Serving  to release stress in all meanings, for you, us and our surroundings.

The sounds of the wild can bring silence to our inner world, and that's what she tries to keep in her hands when giving a massage treatment. She studied yoga and massage in India (2016) but she had been working as a yoga teacher and massage therapist since much earlier in life under the guidance of close teachers and family members. Her massage combines ayurvedic tradition, shiatsu, reiki and a great deal of intuition!
