A little bit about me.
I was born in Brazil in the countryside of its oldest state called Bahia, a place where people contemplate nature with gratitude, appreciate the simple things of life and relate to each other with kindness and compassion.
Paradoxically I grew up in a culture of self-medication, where for any discomfort there was a pill to, and for each pain there was a diagnosis that didn't inform much about its origins.
Growing up in this context and under the pressure of modern life I became not surprisingly quite stressed, tense, anxious and my body started giving me signals that I could no longer suppress them with medication.
I have tried everything I could with conventional medicine but it didn't help much with my back pain, neither it helped me to feel calmer or less anxious. It was only when I came across massage and yoga that I started feeling a positive state of well-being that I have forgotten of, and that was a turning point in my career, and in my life.
I then finished university in Brazil and moved to England in 2005, and since then I became very interested in helping others to minimize their suffering and to increase their sources of wellbeing through my work.
I've studies Coaching Psychology at the University of East London during the years of 2008 and 2009, and in 2010 I fully qualified as massage therapist at the London School of Massage and became a Reiki practitioner.
