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.”


"I had a facial massage and reflexology with Monica and it was amazing. It felt like I had been there for about 3 hours and after a few weeks of stress this is exactly what I needed" 


Andrea - Japanese facelift massage & Reflexology

"Monica is the best deep tissue massage I can find. I would recommend her to anyone.... as long as they don't take my spot!”

Miriam has a natural ability to relieve people from the pain they hide within them. This ability is supported with the knowledge she acquired through years of intensive training.


In 2012 she initiated her studies in Reflexology in Portugal and followed with Shiatsu, Japanese Rejuvenation Facial Massage and Soft Tissue Management in England.

Her awareness developed step by step, health and priorities in life started to change.

Miriam targets the root of the problem and strives to help one's body and mind awareness evolve, enabling people to look after themselves in more depth physically, mentally and emotionally.


Miriam is still very passionate and fascinated at the way the Mind manifests through the Body, and she incorporates this concept into every treatment. She believes Mind, Body and Emotions all come as one, helping others achieve better health and well-being in their own lives.
