About Erawan

Hi! I'm Melanie Vonk, and I've been the owner of Erawan since September 2003.


I started Erawan in September 2003, initially from home and since 2011, at a beautiful business location in the city center of Hoorn, with two treatment rooms. I rent out one of them to fellow entrepreneurs.


For over 20 years, I've been helping people maintain and achieve healthy skin. My own skin wasn't great for a long time. After acne in my teens, it seamlessly transitioned into rosacea, and it took me years to balance it out. It taught me to take a holistic approach because skin issues are often a combination of skincare, nutrition, lifestyle, and underlying emotions.


You can come to me for various treatments for skin issues, as well as for relaxation and Reiki. When you feel good in your skin, it impacts everything!

About Erawan; what do I stand for

At Erawan, you get time and space for yourself, and everyone deserves the best version of their skin: feeling literally good in your own skin.


Three elements are central:

  • Your skin
  • You as a whole
  • And time and space for yourself

Your Skin

The skin is our largest organ, and the facial skin, being constantly exposed to external influences, has a different structure than the rest of the skin. Therefore, it requires different care.

Furthermore, we are faced with different circumstances than before, especially with increased stress having its effect on the skin. This can lead to your skin becoming unbalanced or various skin problems arising. A personalized advice and treatment plan can help you achieve and maintain a beautiful, healthy skin. Everyone deserves the best version of their skin!


You as a Whole

During the treatment, I don't just focus on one part but see you as a complete picture. This means we also consider your lifestyle, and you'll have the space to share your story. I'm not a psychologist, but I do offer a listening ear when needed, or together we explore possibilities to optimize your health. This may also mean that I refer you elsewhere because some things simply don't belong in my realm, or I believe you would benefit more from a different approach.


Time and Space for Yourself

The feeling of having nothing on your mind and being able to recharge your energy. A good balance in your energy ensures that you feel good and can handle more. When you feel good and relaxed, it reflects on your whole body: not only do you feel it, but you also see it.


The Name Erawan

Erawan means elephant in Thai. During a trip to Thailand, I visited the Erawan waterfalls: a beautiful place that exudes total peace and relaxation. I try to convey that feeling in the practice. Furthermore, I believe it's important that we try to treat our environment as well as possible. This means we serve only FairTrade coffee and tea, use as many ecological cleaning products as possible, and try to be mindful of energy consumption.
