Paola grew up in Milan and moved to London in 1994 to study Law and Economics. After working in Brussels for the European Commission Humanitarian Office (ECHO), she decided to take some time off to dedicate herself to her long standing interest in yoga. During the years that followed she encountered and experienced osteopathy and was so fascinated by the powerful healing tools that it offered and its philosophy that decided to train to become an Osteopath.
Paola graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in London and obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Classical Osteopathy in Maidstone and completed a postgraduate course with the Sutherland Cranial College. In addition to osteopathy she is also experienced in using dry needling acupuncture and has completed a foundation course in Chinese syndrome acupuncture with Acumedic in Camden. Paola is also a qualified yoga teacher since 2001 (YogaArts, Byron Bay) and her curiosity and strong fascination with the self healing ability of the body and the strong connection between mind, soul and body continues to inspire her to deepen her knowledge within osteopathy, meditation and yoga and the power of their interaction in supporting health. Her osteopathic approach draws from a wide range of osteopathic techniques including structural, visceral, fascial and cranial. Paola has a strong interest in the treatment of babies and children.
Paola works in clinics in London and has worked as an osteopath and yoga teacher in Ulpotha Eco Resort in Sri Lanka. She also collaborates with NGOs that bring osteopathy alongside conventional medicine in developing countries.
