I am originally from São Paulo, Brazil, where I was a journalist. In 1989 I decided to come to London to learn Mime and Physical Theatre, which I did for a couple of years until a mild injury forced me to stop. Through this injury I came into contact with the Classical Five Element Acupuncture system, which helped me enormously, not only with the injury but also transforming the way I perceived myself, and the world around me. I felt stronger and more in control of my life and my body than I ever had before, and that inspired me to study it myself, so that I could help others in the same transforming way.
I love opening my practice space for patients to feel safe, grow and be in command of their own life and wellbeing, thus achieving sustainable health - physically, emotionally and spiritually.
I graduated in 1999 from the School of Five Element Acupuncture, SOFEA, in London and have been a practitioner ever since. Soon after graduation I was invited to join the team of tutors and the academic board of the school. There I acquired teaching experience and oversaw many practitioners as they completed their training.
Five Element Acupuncture paved the way for me to have a deeper and meaningful conversation with my patient’s energy. I knew achieving that would help bring even greater healing possibilities. I then embarked on my own spiritual self-development journey with Dr Brenda Davies, a healer and consultant psychiatrist who teaches spirituality all over the world. This led to do further training and graduation from Dr. Davies's International School of Healing and Spiritual Development.
As a passionate believer in continuous development and training I regularly attend Advanced Training sessions with Dr. Davies and other acupuncture workshops and Continuous Professional Development, CPD, activities learning new techniques, honing my current skills and deepening my understanding of energy development and its effect on the physical body
