To book a consultation, see below, but please do read one or both of My Osteopathy and/or My Acupuncture first, for important information about how I work.
Joint and soft tissue manipulation for the relief of pain is a very ancient art. Osteopathy is a system of manipulation designed to assess and treat mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and soft tissues. During the past several decades osteopathy has become widely recognised as an effective treatment for musculoskeletal and other ailments.
Each osteopathy makes osteopathy their own. Like all other osteopaths, I have developed an approach which suits my own predilection. My approach is physical yet quite gentle. I do not believe in «putting things back in place», neither do I do «craniosacral» treatments. I do make my clients better. Read more about my way of practising osteopathy here.
Acupuncture – the insertion through the skin of fine needles as treatment – has its origins thousands of years ago in ancient China. It is now used extensively around the world and is appreciated as a drugless alternative or complement to standard medical treatment.
My acupuncture is based on the traditional uses of acupuncture points, the practices I learned when apprentice to my then father-in-law, a well-regarded acupuncturist in the Venice region of Italy, as well as a modern scientific understanding of acupuncture’s effects on the body.

At my practice in Santa Eulària des Riu, Ibiza, I see clients with a wide range of complaints related to the musculoskeletal system, who wish to use osteopathy as an alternative or complement to conventional medicine. Please note though that I am unable to offer appointments to short-term visitors to the island. Consultations can be carried out in ENGLISH, SPANISH or ITALIAN.
