When did you discover an interest in healing?
Since a young age, I had a passion for the body’s anatomy and it’s movements . From the age of 14 I was teaching sport disciplines in the local gym and from this, my interest in posture and wellness grew. Shitzu was my next interest followed by my degree in physiotherapy to complete my journey with a six year course to specialise in Osteopathy , it was a natural progression.
I believe osteopathy came to me, I didn’t look for it.
What type of healing do you do?
I know various ways to achieve overall physical wellness, however after many different studies, osteopathy is what gave me the best results and satisfaction. I wouldn’t define it only as a healing therapy, everything is based on the deep knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body but also from your perception and feeling in tune with your patient.
What is your brief description of Osteopathy?
It’s a type of alternative medicine that heals the partial or total loss of muscle tissue and bones, cranial and visceral. It gives back movement, the cells are improved, the body achieves total harmony.
Osteopathy helps the three body’s components : self-healing auto-regulation and homeostasis
What do you want people to know about Osteopathy?
Very often, the general public confuse osteopathy with chiropractic referring to the thrust adjustments, however osteopathy is divided into three branches.
Structural osteopathy, describes the diagnosis and treatment of dysfunctions in the musculoskeletal system.
Visceral osteopathy relates to the visceral system, mobility and the ligaments.
Cranio sacral, a palpation of the cranium can be used to detect rhythmic movement of the cranial bones and selective pressures may be used to manipulate the cranial bones to achieve a therapeutic result. A good osteopath uses all three disciplines, choosing different techniques based on his perceptions.
Why do you do this particular sort of healing work?
I have chosen Osteopathy, because I help people to get better with my treatments, real treatments of anatomical basis. Also a good sense of perception is needed to get in tune with the patient to understand what the patient needs. This is a gift I have received , I am not sure who from and why , I only know that I get in tune with the body and my patients can perceive this energy and it’s effects.
Years of medical studies, physiotherapy, elastic therapy and anatomy, everything supported from a great passion and curiosity of human wellbeing. I think I have an innate gift in perceiving where the problem is and how to heal it, a mix of these factors has led to what I do today.
How did you develop your abilities and methods?
After years of medical, physiotherapist healing and anatomy studies. Also with a passion and curiosity of how the human being can achieve a state of wellness . I believe I have the gift of perception in finding where the problem is and how to solve it . A combination of those factors made me what I am today.
How do you prepare for your sessions?
Three words describe my session: Attention (meaning total concentration), Presence (I’m fully here mentally and physically) and Intention (I transfer with my energy information to the patient who receives it).
What does a visit to/working with an Osteopath healer involve?
An osteopath session involves meeting the patient first to discuss any physical problems, this is also a good opportunity to get to know the patient to help me to get in tune with him/her. Second step consists of palpating the patient ‘s body to diagnose any evident disease. The next step is the real treatment and manipulation to solve the cause of the physical disorder.
What transformations have you experienced through your Osteo journey?
What I have obtained through my journey after many years, is an extreme understanding of people, a perception of their traumas both physical and psychological, this helps me to obtain better results. Without those understandings, the manipulations would be only mechanical.
What transformations have you witnessed in people you have worked with?
Firstly the reduction and/or the elimination of pain, which is the main reason patients come to see me. After treatments, I also see a psychological improvement of general wellness in the patient; especially the reduction of stress levels.
One client always came with a skeleton diagram to demonstrate the pain she was experiencing still one year after being in a road traffic accident. After four treatments she improved dramatically and after a few more treatments she said that “everything finally felt back in the right place”.
What has your greatest realisation or learning been?
The greatest realisation has been that I am able to help people and make them feel better. What I have learned in time is the importance of being in tune with and feel the energy of my patients.
What is the most powerful type of healing you have experienced?
I could tell many anecdotes, but one sticks in my mind.
I remember a 92 years old lady who was living in Rome and from 2 years she was unable to walk. After many check ups and doctors consultations no one would take the responsibility to treat her because of her age. I don’t believe age is important and the lady had such a powerful energy that when I treated her, after 5 manipulations she started walking again like she was 60 years old not in her 90’s. To make this lady happy and independent when everyone else felt that she was too old to be treated was one of the greatest satisfactions I have experienced.
Do you have one tip to share for happiness and wellbeing in everyday life?
Life is motion from microscopic to macroscopic.
The Earth travels around the sun as the electrons travel around the nucleus of the cell, therefore all is movement.
I advise people to move as much as possible with their body and mind.
What is your favorite music/artists to listen to?
I love songs that talk about life diversity and different moods especially John Lennon and Elton John.
What are your plans for the future, evolution of what you do?
My goal for the future is to have three different offices in three different places in the world. Rome, London and one on a remote island .
This year I hope to expand by opening a second office in London.
