Latest Massage Therapist signing up for the World Championship in Massage is Ivana Valli from Italy.
Ivana has 30+ years of experience as a certified beautician and massage therapist from Italy. Since her childhood, she is passionate about the connection between our minds and our bodies and has an innate predisposition in finding the “right links” on the body to provide relief and wellbeing to both the body and the mind. For this reason, she has always felt as a “good witch”. After her certification as professional beautician at the C. F. P. of Varese (https://agenziaformativa.va.it/), she became increasingly fascinated by Eastern massage approaches, specialising firstly through a 4-year master course (by the renowned company Lakshmi, held in Peschiera Del Garda – https://academy.lakshmi.it/) to become a professional Ayurvedic massage therapist. The Ayurvedic Medicine focusses on the prevention and reduction of physical and mental malaise. Her specialisations: Abhyanga vata/pitta/kapha & Synchro-Abhyanga (4-hands massage); Aromatherapy; Shiro Dhara; Pinda sweda; Chakra Dhara; Swedana; Udvarthana; etc. In the following years, her passion about the Oriental philosophies and Traditional Medicines’ role for prevention of illnesses and fatigue led her to graduate from the Zu Center (Milan) under the guide of Alfredo Baldassarre (www.riflessologiazu.it) This course allowed her to specialise in Traditional Chinese Medicine, namely on the techniques of foot reflexology, cupping, Moxa, semeiotics, etc. The focus of TCM is on the bones and on the reflex areas for the correct treatment of symptoms. Furthermore, she has recently graduated in both the Entry- and Advanced-level courses of Vietnamese Facial reflexology at Dien Chan Academy in Brescia (www.accademiadienchan.it, www.riflessologiadienchan.it): the focus is, again, on the impact of reflexed areas on the related organs’ wellbeing.
