One Way to Feel More Than Fine

Nikos Akrivos is both DJ, music producer and healer and brings the best of each to his “Feel More than Fine” evens

By Cat Milton, Ibiza Spotlight 

Ibiza is famed for her ‘alternative‘ side. Hippies and a multitude of religions and beliefs all find their place on the island and have done for decades.

Gathering with a complete lack of any formality in a yoga space, within the campsite at Es Canar, I walked into an extraordinary evening – an ‘alternative’ evening.

Here it was that I met Nikos, DJ, music producer and healer – the driving force behind Feel More Than Fine. On this occasion Richart Llover had joined him – the man renowned for painting peoples Auras. Combining music therapy (sounds which they say directly impacts on your DNA) with exercise, visualisation and reiki, quite an ‘alternative’ workshop started to take place.

The first thing that caught my attention was how many children gathered. Youngsters, normally full of exuberant energy came on to the mats, settled and followed Nikos guiding voice as the sun slowly started to set behind us. There was no announcement. They simply arrived. The second observation was that this event attracted people from all walks of life. Everyone was welcome and regardless of background, they came.

After a ‘ten minute warm-up’ Nikos invited everyone to lie back and relax with the music. Then calmly, generously, he moved from one person to another, treating each to a reiki session.

Richart too quietly rose from his position and with paints in hand, lightly, tenderly, started to paint the energies he felt on those gathered for the Healing Session. Across foreheads, chests and down arms, patterns and colours grew. (one of the audience told me afterwards that the sensation was surprisingly relaxing and there was a distinct sense of energies moving)

On the music played and even I, with DSLR and iPad, your modern day photo-journalist, found myself happy to just ‘chill-out’.

The environment wasn’t quiet – a campsite on the edge of Cala Martina beach on a gloriously warm evening. Children called out between tents, music elsewhere played, people laughed on the sand but somehow none of it interfered.

People came and went. Mothers came to find their children and with a quiet summoning, beckoned them off the mats. More people arrived, finding space, lying down and just letting go.

I am, first and foremost a cynic. I am relatively logical, highly analytical and if I had the energy could probably explain away all that took place but frankly, I feel no need. Regardless of the ‘why’s and cynicism, it was clear that those relaxing, experiencing the painting, the reiki, the music, were gaining from it – be it a sense of rest and peacefulness or just some much needed time out. The children were calm and smiling, and this was reflected in the adults who had arrived, looking a little rushed and now were blatantly contently peaceful, still, as the gathering came to an end.

So, if you’re free and fancy doing something a little different for a couple of hours as the sun sets, check out

One thought on “One Way to Feel More Than Fine”

  1. On a recent visit home (to Washington) I asked Nick and Susie to give me a Reiki session. I’ve been dealing with constant lower back/ left hip pain for about 4-6 months. I knew that if nothing else I would feel relaxed and refreshed afterwards.What I wasn’t expecting was to be pain free, now it wassn’t instant. I felt the release about half way through my session. Susie placed her hand on the middle of my chest and I felt myself taking deeper and deeper breathes then this release happened; the pain, the weight of the pain was gone I felt lighter more centered like a blanket had been lifted and my spirit was free again.its about three weeks now and I am still pain free and feel more centered in my life than I’ve been in along long time.. I can’t wait to visit them again and have another session.I also look forward to taking the classs.
