Monica is the principal therapist and 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 practise 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 practise 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.”

PATRIZIA

P A T R I Z I A 

Patrizia approached Chinese medicine via qigong, which she started practicing in 2007. She trained to teach Qigong before becoming a Chinese medicine practitioner.

 

She provides Acupuncture and Tuina (Chinese medical massage) treatments - including Cupping, Moxa e Gua sha, along with qigong exercises as integral part of my approach to health and well-being. Based on the holistic nature of Chinese medicine, she also provides online health coaching on how to maintain and promote vitality by addressing the everyday eating and sleeping habits. 

She is particularly interested in digestive and emotional conditions, the last ones extending to the menstrual cycle and menopause. As complement to the clinic sessions but also standing on their own, she ran online educational programs to promote the health of the menstrual cycle and a deep understanding of its nature, from the fertility years into menopause.

TESTIMONIALS

"I highly recommend Patrizia as a Chinese Medicine Practitioner. Having been her client for several years now, I have found her treatment and care exceptional. In particular, I found the Tuina massage extremely helpful for issues with fatigue, digestion and hormonal imbalance. The massage was also very restorative and relaxing. I will definitely be going back to Patrizia in the future.​"

Ann - Tuina Medical Massage

I’ve had the pleasure to try both Patrizia’s Womanessence online classes and her massage therapy. The first helped me approach everyday life with a new found awareness of my body, from nutrition to sleeping habits I’ve started making little changes that help me feel more energised and focused. I then went for a consultation and massage because of an ongoing back pain. Patrizia managed to pinpoint possible triggers and gave me advice to alleviate the pain. The massage itself really helped and I’m looking forward to seeing her again.

 

Lilith - Acupuncture & Massage

"Having had some ongoing issues with the menopause but wanting to take a more holistic approach. It was a welcome breath of fresh air to take Patrizia's online course. I found Patrizia's approach to teaching very warming and knowledgable, so much so that this led to some great pointers that I still put into practice today, I cant Thank her enough.​"
