I discovered osteopathy in my late teens following an accident, and I was quickly captivated by its efficacy and non-invasive methods as a manual therapy.
I began my osteopathic studies in my hometown in Italy. In my second year, I moved to Lyon, France, where I received an excellent education in cranial and visceral techniques. It was here that I first met fellow Osteopath Marine Schirru, as we were in the same class and, now, Marine is my colleague at Mallow & Fermoy Osteopathic Clinics. After spending two years in Lyon, I decided to move to the UK, where I completed my studies and graduated from the European School of Osteopathy (ESO) after a further two years of study (totaling five years of full-time study). At the ESO, I honed my skills in structural, fascial, and cranial methods under the guidance of passionate lecturers.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, and gardening, and I am passionate about outdoor rock climbing and I’m eagerly anticipating going on long hikes with Marine. I am also a fan of jam session music and languages. I speak Italian, French, English, and Spanish, and I am currently learning Portuguese and Greek – and maybe a little Gaeilge!!!
During my clinical training, I had the opportunity to practice in specialist clinics such as sports, women’s health, pregnancy, paediatrics, and headaches, areas in which I am eager to expand my knowledge.
I am thrilled to begin this new chapter of my life in Ireland at Judith’s clinic, where I have met fantastic Osteopathic colleagues in Judith, Marine and Damien, and also all the other practitioners at the Bellevue Clinic.
Wishing you all the best of health.
