From a very early age, the way universe works aroused my curiosity. Very young, I had a few pathologies for which conventional medicine has failed me.

It was a long road, and I realised that I needed to do some internal work to finding the cause and root of the imbalanceand this is precisely the theory that TCM reminds us that we are not dissociated from no way from the world we live in, from our emotions, and that we are connected to the energy of the earth (YIN) and energy from the sky (YANG), in constant movement and transformation in the dance of life.

TCM treats not only complaints and symptoms, but mainly the cause of illnesses, always seeing the patient as a whole, providing a physical, emotional and mental balance."
