Originally from Italy, I moved to the UK in 2014 with the sole purpose of studying herbal medicine. I graduated at Lincoln University in 2017 and became part of NIMH . I then decided to move to Bristol to deepen my knowledge of the human body by studying holistic and remedial massage and become a member of the Massage Training Institute (MTI). Through the course of my career I have attended several CPD courses including facial acupressure, advanced manual therapy and various supplement training with the main sustainable nutriceutical brands.
