Dip. Healing-Shiatsu, MrssT, PGSE, PG MBCT Cert
During my career as a Complementary Health Practitioner I have received much positive feedback from many clients: from people who sought help during difficult life transitions, those who looked for relief for their injuries and chronic conditions, women who sought support during pregnancy and following birth; also people who have wanted to change their response to stress, to be able to perform to their full potential. Italian by birth, I started working as a Shiatsu Practitioner in Bristol in 1988, before moving to Totnes in 2000. I am a recognised teacher member of the Shiatsu Society (MRSST) and Seiki teacher, and have been teaching Shiatsu and Seiki in Shiatsu Schools in Italy and in the UK.
In 2004 I founded ‘Life Healing Arts’ - an organization that has been offering training in Mindfulness Meditation and Movement, Shiatsu and Seiki skills, to complementary therapists and to groups with an interest in natural health-care. Many participants have reported how these courses have enhanced the quality of their lives and transformed how they take care of their own health.
My professional development has included nine years work with the internationally recognised Seiki teacher Akinobu Kishi, in Europe and Japan. Additionally I have trained in, and practiced, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Breathworks “Mindfulness for Health”, Mindful Movement, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Usui Reiki Healing and Chi-Qong, which I integrate to assist people’s diversity of conditions and their capacity to be well. I enjoy a daily Mindfulness Meditation and Movement practice and receive periodic Shiatsu and Seiki sessions.
