Silja Jürs

img_6511Silja Jürs is one of the founders of Teraapialaegas. She provides both Swedish and Thai massage as well as nutrition counselling. The latter also includes compiling personal nutrition plans and doing food intolerance tests. She also takes care of many administrative tasks, such as issuing invoices, managing the website, posting on Facebook, designing/ordering commercial materials, marketing, ordering massage oils, but also such simple things as greeting customers (because Sander is always busy with work).

Silja loves cats, healthy food, nature, long-distance running, and travelling. She competes in running under Sparta. In terms of education, she actually majored in English language and thus she also does some translations if she finds time for this.
