Becoming a Bodyworker

My Story

HOME > About > My Story
A pursuit of healing and growth

Since a young age, I have been fascinated by the complex beauty of the human body, its infinite potential, how it moves, how it stores and communicates the experiences of our day-to-day life and our personal histories.

 

With bodywork I discovered the healing power of a skillful nurturing touch.

Credentials

Review my formal training and certifications.

Prior to becoming a bodyworker, I trained as a professional dancer at the National Dance Academy in Rome, and then at the École-Atelier Rudra Bèjart in Lausanne. Following my brief stage carrier, I earned a bachelor in Economics and Management for the Arts and Cultural Activities at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, and a Masters Degree in International Cultural Management through the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. After working as Marketing Manager for the Municipal Theatre of Ferrara, my passion for the art of dance led me to accept the role of Assistant to Ismael Ivo, Director of Dance of La Biennale di Venezia, and then Company Manager at Company C Contemporary Ballet in San Francisco. 

I spent most of my life being around well-trained bodies capable of amazing poetic beauty out of strength and pain. 

One day a dear friend of mine told me that I’d be a good massage therapist so, out of curiosity, I started taking classes at the San Francisco School of Massage & Bodywork, and since then I haven’t stopped advancing my training to deepen the intellectual understanding of the body, and my own spiritual and philosophical quest relating to the condition of being human.

Philosophy

Discover the guiding principle to my bodywork approach.

Our modern lifestyle takes its toll on our bodies and mind, and as humans, we have not evolved to easily process and cope with the demands we have put upon ourselves. The compromise then translates into stress, persistent and pathological muscular tension, and restrictions that culminate into chronic pain over time.
