    The healing process starts with listening to my clients.

    Language Spoken: English, Italian, Spanish

    I started my career in massage therapy in 2008 as an Ayurveda Practitioner. I was living in Barcelona, Spain, when I first studied Abhyanga yoga massage, a combination of Ayurveda and Thai, followed by Marma Points therapy and Body mapping. Back in my home country, Italy, I got a degree in Traditional Ayurveda Massage and Rasayana (rejuvenating) Therapies at the Ayurveda International Academy of Florence.

    After moving to New York City, I attended the New York College of Health Professions and graduated in December 2019. I don't use a specific modality, my massage is mainly intuitive with a combination of Swedish, deep tissue, MFR, Thai and unconditional love! I'm also certified in prenatal massage and I've been working regularly with pre/postnatal clients for the past two years. I'm myself a mother of two and outside work I love spending time with my daughters, cooking and traveling.
