Behind the philosophy of Bios is Margherita Costantino, an experienced and highly qualified massage therapist. After originally studying and graduating from the University of Architecture, La Sapienza in Rome, Margherita has developed a passion for her work in Alternative Medicine and this has grown from her studies of the Holistic approach to HEALTH AND WELLNESS.
The fundamental idea of helping people feel better is what attracted her to massage therapy. She likes to know that she is actually doing something that improves the person’s symptoms leading to an enhancement of well being. The interaction that comes from doing this is an important part of her practice and leads to a healing partnership between patient and therapist. Margherita’s passion has led her to attend various courses in order to expand her knowledge but she has always come back to lymph drainage massage and its many applications. MLD treatment can also be helpful in conjunction with WEIGHT LOSS programmes and Margherita has built up a very successful Detox/Weight loss treatments.
We all have a lot of stress and tension, we often carry this tension in our muscles and if left untreated the muscular problems can FEED into restriction in the joints. This type of tension requires deep tissue massage. If necessary, the more traditional methods of treatment can be used alongside MLD. Margherita holds an ITEC Diploma in Massage and a Diploma in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, from Inspire at Roehampton University; she is also a current member of CThA Complementary Therapist Association and Embody Therapist.
As a passionate believer in continuing personal and professional development and the holistic approach to health and well being, she has since gone on to study many different disciplines and techniques in massage and other bodywork therapies.
She practices regular yoga and Pilates to increase energy, strength, flexibility and body awareness and is fascinated by the difference that good alignment and posture can make on our physical and mental well-being.
