Monica is the founder of A to Zen Therapies and a holistic therapist, specialising in reflexology, shiatsu, holistic and deep tissue massage since 2009. 


Having left the fashion industry behind in order to follow her passion for holistic medicine, Monica travelled to Thailand and Bali where she learned traditional massage therapies and healing techniques. Back in London, Monica spent four years studying shiatsu, reflexology and deep tissue massage, and started her own holistic practice in Central London.


In her clinic, as well as home and corporate visits, Monica continues using her extensive experience and scope of practice to help resolve postural misalignments, chronic pain, insomnia, migraines, help maintain the optimal muscle and joint health and, no less important, enhance emotional wellbeing. 


While working with a range of clients from professional athletes to full-time mums, gym goers and City workers, Monica has helped with numerous lower back issues, frozen shoulders, trapped nerves and sports injury cases.


An important part of Monica’s practice is women’s health and fertility. She has helped multiple women with PMS, fibromyalgia, menopause symptoms as well as women trying for a baby with natural methods or using IVF:


“Thanks to the specialised training as well as through my own observing and experimentation, I am able to recognise a disorder and deliver a personalised treatment or a course of treatments, that will be uniquely tailored to suit client’s needs and to provide them with the support they need on the journey to healing and self-empowerment.”
