"Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

About me

shiatsu acupressure massage manchester

I am a Shiatsu practitioner, acupressure massage therapist and assistant teacher at the Manchester Shiatsu College, registered with the Shiatsu Society  and Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.

In Rome (Italy) I began my studies in 2015 at the Igea school of Shiatsu continued at the E.S.I. (European Shiatsu Institute); both the schools are accredited by the F.I.S.I.E.O. (Italian Shiatsu Federation). I attended the last year of study and I graduated at the Shiatsu College in Manchester, UK  after 3 years of training.

I never stopped studying in depth and expanding my knowledge in Shiatsu, chinese medicine, body-work and spirituality.

I've been practicing yoga and meditation since 2000 and I put these experieces in my Shiatsu practice. I've always been interested in zen and oriental philosophies as well as in holistic therapies. 


I am fascinated about how emotions can mould our body. On our bodies there are all our stories. So I believe that relieving body tension allow us to relieve stress and strong emotions.


My Shiatsu is focused on improving my clients’ quality of life encouraging mind-body awareness and through restoring strength, flexibility and energy giving relief from body tensions, stress and past injuries, reducing the effects of emotional pain and supporting the ones affected by chronic diseases.


Supporting my clients is my very priority so I often give them gentle and easy exercises – tailored on their needs – to enhance the effects of the shiatsu sessions

I've always believed that a healthy body gives us a healthy mind and vice versa, because everything is connected. This is why, when I tried Shiatsu for the first time and I experimented the benefits on myself, I decided that yes I would like to receive Shiatsu for the rest of my life, and that, yes again, I would like to give Shiatsu to the others.

Shiatsu is a state of harmony.
