My story

Hi, I’m Tanja Spaans, I help people recover from Burnout. I am a motivational speaker in the fields of self-development and spiritual growth. I blog.

I grew up in Germany, Australia and the Netherlands. Currently I live in France.

In 2004 I founded Kazumi, because I want to give people, who are now fighting to survive from a Burnout, the same chance I got. Kazumi is a Japanese name for a boy or a girl. Meaning: Beautiful Harmony

Before I had a Burnout myself, I owned, along with my former partner, a big Gym in The Hague, Netherlands. Due to long working hours, 90 hours/week, and a lot of management tasks for over 20 years, I got burned out.

After recovering, I turned my profession: became a Life Coach, became a Reiki Master & Energetic therapist and learned about the basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The tools I used to renew and empower my life are the same tools I coach and treat people with today.


I’m not here to advise you
I share my knowledge and skills with you, so that you can make your own choices. You are fully in control and you assume your responsibilities in working on your recovery


I’m not going to solve your problems
Only you can do that, but I will guide you by means of Life Coaching (Therapeutic Conversation, Mindfulness Exercises (in actual practice and homework)) and Energetic Therapy (treatments and massages).


I’m looking forward to helping you!


Burnout Specialist


If you’re repeatedly and chronically stressed over a long period of time, it puts a lot of pressure on your body, and can lead to a tipping point where your exhaustion prevents you from taking part in activities that used to mean a lot to you. This is burnout. Some of the signs of burnout include:


  • Feeling exhausted and feel unable to perform basic tasks
  • Losing motivation in many aspects of your life, including both work and social
  • Feeling unable to focus or concentrate on tasks
  • Feeling empty or lacking emotion
  • Losing your passion and drive
  • Experiencing conflict in your relationships with co-workers, friends and family
  • Withdrawing emotionally from friends and family

Essentially, when you’ve reached the point of burnout, you can really feel like you’ve had the life sucked out of you. Your ability to care, to make an effort, and to find motivation no longer exists.

Burnout can be healed! You can regain your balance by reassessing priorities, making time for yourself and seeking support. I’m here for you, let me help you to overcome your situation together. Contact me for a free intake and let’s see where we can go from there.

Free intake
I always start with a free 60 minute consultation session. Based on your needs, we will determine the best program for you or your organization. We can have this conversation in my practice, on location or via skype.

A multidisciplinairy approach
My treatments are tailored to your specific needs. I master and use different techniques, including:

Life coaching (indoor and outdoor)
Life Coaching is a powerful method to take you where you are today to where you want to be. As a Life coach I provide tools and support to broaden your perspective and open your mind, in order to help you set and reach your goals.
The coaching session can take place in my practice, but can also take place outside my pratice which is nearby the Pyrenees. I find that by getting out of the office and onto the trail, a natural ease takes place, which leads to open conversation, active listening and a soothing environment to resolve ongoing life.

Energetic therapy
As an Energetic therapist I belief that the physical body is surrounded by a subtle-energetic field. Research support that believe and has shown that abnormalities in the subtle-energetic field can have a disruptive impact at the cellular level of the body, physically and mentally. The most common treatment is to edit and/or to correct the subtle energetic field, often by means of the hands.
Energetic therapy facilitates the healing process by clearing blocks in the energy fields, repairing and rebalancing the energy so that the body can move to its optimal level of balance. Based on my daily practice I am convinced that I can influence the health of my clients in a positive, both spiritual and physical sense, by means of Reiki, Jin Shin Jyutsu and energetic massage.

My programs
I offer a one-on-one program which is designed to let you take back control of your life and feel energetic again.

Based on extensive management experience and burnout prevention experience I also give companies, hospitals and the army the opportunity to be a pioneer in taking measures for preventing Burnout.

Contact me for a free intake and let’s see where we can go from there.

The program
With my 1-on-1 program I will support you to get control over your life again. Kazumi offers short (V.I.P weekend) and long term guidance (3 or 9 months). After a free intake, on location or by Skype, the program will start with the V.I.P. weekend. Depending on the status of your situation, this can be enough to get you back on your feet or we can use this weekend as an kick-off for long term guidance.

The program (short & long term) includes:

  • Life Coaching, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) exercises and working materials
  • Energetic Therapy (Reiki, Jin Shin Jyutsu, energetic massage)

V.I.P. – weekend (997 euro)

  • Weekend overnight stay at Le Manoir, Villeneuve de Rivière (incl.: breakfast and lunch)
  • You’ll be staying in a Chambre d’Hôtes, a large bedroom with its own bathroom and toilet adjacent to the practice, overlooking the front garden. Le Manoir was a former nuns house and now completely renovated. The plot covers 6,000 m2 garden, enough space for peace and relaxation

Company prevention program
Stress is part of life. Under the influence of temporary stress, we can perform very good. However, if stress is prolonged it creates problems.
When working under prolonged stress the symptoms get worse, and if you do not intervene, this leads to Burnout. Stress and Burnout costs businesses a lot of money. Money that can be easily saved by a good prevention policy.
Based on extensive management experience and burnout prevention experience I give companies, hospitals and the army the opportunity to be a pioneer in taking measures for preventing Burnout.

Burnout risk analysis
Kazumi can perform a burnout risk analysis for your company. Hereby, the organization will, anonymously, be screened using a (Maslach Burnout Inventory, MBI) test and interviews.
A custom made Burnout prevention plan to anticipate future illness due to stress, is one of the instruments to sustainably deal with your most important asset: your own workforce!  Kazumi can offer support and guidance to enlarge this policy into the organization.

Summarized, Kazumi offers a number of products that help you develop policies to challenge tension, stress and Burnout in the organization:

  • Burnout risk analysis;
  • Prevention: implementable in your personnel policy;
  • Support in implementing this prevention;
  • Intervention course for individual cases / group training;
  • Workshops about Stress and Burnout.
E-book: How to achieve your dreamlife
Burnout grows in a cycle of exhaustion, cynism and lack of civility. Basically what makes Burnout is poor self-management.
If you want to control your life again, then I wrote this e-book especially for you!

This journey of self-exploration is for free, you don’t have to sign up for something or buy something. I just want to show with what simple inexpensive exercises you can become more aware of your needs and dreams and how to use this knowledge to change your life and create your own dreamlife.


If achieving your goals, for example having more fun at work, a better work/life balance , being less stressed or a greater social life is a bit of a challenge on your own, than let me help you. Check out my one-on-one program or Contact me for a free intake and let’s see where we can go from there.


I also offer the possibility to create some time to relax and to rewind, without having to join a coaching traject. Just “me-time”!

Me-time is important because it gives you the possibility to relax, unwind and unplug, so you can cope with e.g. demanding & stressful situations at work or at home.

I offer different relaxation treatments:

  • Massages (Energetic / Honey / Gemstone / TuiNa)
  • Reiki

Contact me if you have any questions or to claim some me-time!

Energetic massage € 60, – (60 minutes)
With the energetic massages I aim at freeing up (life) energy. Many of the techniques have their origin in traditional oriental medicine (TCM). Energy Points on the meridians will be stimulated thereby blockages can be abolished and energy can flow through the body. The massage is intuitive and lasts about an hour. The effect varies from deep relaxation to a feeling of revival, depending on what the body needs

Honey massage € 70, – (60 minutes)
Honey as a product is full of goodness. Scientists have revealed that honey has powerful anti-bacterial and anti-scepticproperties on at least sixty species of bacteria; honey is non-toxic and has strong effects. So it can be used for very sensitive skin.

Honey massage incorporates the healing effects of honey and the beneficial ingredients that honey contains. During the massage, Beneficial substances from the honey are absorbed directly into the skin and trapped toxins are loosened. As an added benefit, the muscles are stretched and loosened.

Gemstone massage € 70, – (60 minutes)
Crystal healing is an alternative medical technique in which crystals and other stones are used to cure ailments and protect against disease. Proponents of this technique believe that crystals act as conduits for healing — allowing positive, healing energy to flow into the body as negative, disease-causing energy flows out. Adding heat to the stones, it is a most relaxing massage with the benefits of the the stone itself. I use either Rose Quartz (balance emotions / peace / calm), Amethyst (emotional stability / inner strength / flexibility), Crystal Quartz (power stone /directs and amplifies energy) and Aventurine (calm / balance / courage).

Tui Na massage € 60, – (60 minutes)
Tui Na is a therapeutic form of massage without the use of oil and has been used in China for more than 2,000 years. The greatest advantage of Tui Na is that it focuses on maintaining overall balance with both physical and mental health. The best part of the therapy is that it relaxes as well as energizes the person.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki (energy) is administered by laying on hands . A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing

In a typical Reiki session, which lasts about one hour (+ 30 minutes acclimation time afterwards, including a drink), the receiver remains clothed and lies face- up on a cushioned surface.
Price €80,-


Villeneuve de Rivière

Villeneuve de Rivière is located in the south west of the Haute-Garonne, about 10 kilometers of the Hautes-Pyrenees (now part of the Occitanie region). It is at a distance of 4 kilometers from the capital of canton and sub-prefecture of Haute-Garonne, Saint-Gaudens, and 95 kilometers from Toulouse (651 km from Paris).

It is a very quiet village, where the shepherd with his sheep and goats still walks through the streets on their way to a meadow. Where the churchtower is illuminated at night and where, in the summer months, people play “jeu de boule” in the church square.

Le Manoir

You’ll be staying in a Chambre d’Hôtes of “Le Manoir”, a large bedroom with its own bathroom and toilet adjacent to the practice, overlooking the front garden. Le Manoir was a former nuns house and now completely renovated. The plot covers 6,000 m2 garden, enough space for peace and relaxation.
