Hi, I am Francesco, a passionate and dedicated Shiatsu Massage Practitioner, Movement Instructor, Singing voice facilitator, Ceremonial space holder and a Carrier of the Sacred Fire.
Having spent many years across Central/South America, Asia & Australia, my training and work is deeply inspired by traditional and tribal healing traditions, energy healing methods and ancient Shamanic Ceremonies and practices. I aim to bring together the latest quantum physic understanding of energy, multi-dimensionality and matter, with the latest research into the benefit and power of Touch therapy, Dance and Sound Vibration.
My offerings are based around 3 main areas:
1) HEALING HANDS - With many years training in the Traditional Healing Arts of Shiatsu bodywork and Thai Massage, I supports my clients healing their body and releasing traumas through a deeply compassionate and present healing touch.
2) HEALING MUSIC - Music as a life passion and gift, I am a multi-instrumentalist therapist working with the voice, harmonic vibrations & subtle energies. I offers Sounds Healing sessions, community/group harmonic singing workshops as well as meditative Sound Journey Ceremonies. Having been deeply inspired by the work of artist like Deva Premal, Jai Uttal & Krishna Das, I hold Kirtans (i.e. Group mantra & sacred songs chanting events) together with my partner Katie, as part of "The Inner Cheile" ceremonial musical duo. I compose my own Medicine music which I have shared and performed in a wide variety of ceremonial settings.
3) HEALING MOVEMENT- Lover of dance as medicine, and as a qualified Shibashi Qi Gong Instructor at the Sao Bao Martial Art School in Glasgow I teach Qi-Gong and Free-Movement Therapy/Dance classes to promote health and energy flow in the body. I hold a Diploma in Physical Theatre and I developed my own form of Free Flow Dancing Qi Gong movement practice. I run regular classes in Edinburgh.
All of my work aims to enable my clients to stand in their full authenticity and to celebrate their divinity, and innate healing power as humans. I do so by sharing my gifts, and supporting people “getting out of the way” of their innate potential, allowing their essence to express its full beauty and awaken its innate healing instinct.
As a Holistic Therapist, I enjoy being able to bridge the gap between western medicine and the “alternatives,” while providing a safe and nurturing environment in which to explore any "lack of ease" (literal meaning of "dis-ease") of the body, mind and spirit.
