“I’m a creative soul, a free spirit, a mother and a passionate human being. I’m an alchemist, born to transform, heal and shape a new paradigm of reality that is anchored in consciousness and truth. I’m here to raise group consciousness for the heart of the planet.”
I have devoted my life to Self-awakening.
I’m a human being who created myself by transforming my pain into power, and adversity into strength.
I’m a spiritual alchemist who understands the value of facing shadows and transmuting them into light.
I journeyed down to the core of the devil and dark matter to illuminate the unseen realms, and to support the awakening of the soul to manifest love and healing.
I incarnate the spirit of a warrior, an ancient priestess, a joyful child, and a wild feminine fire goddess.
My wisdom comes from scratch, from true experience, and from my resilient nature.
I’m a free spirit committed to honoring the gift of life, and to supporting people to awaken and vibrate in happiness.
“With her certifications, and a background in professional dance, conscious intimacy and shamanic healing, Federica brings to her retreats a wealth of background information in the mechanics of alignment, dynamic movement, energy flow and effective healing techniques.”
I am a Yoga Alliance certified instructor, certified biodynamic craniosacral therapist, shamanic healer,
massage therapist, and certified Gestalt counselor. I have been practicing and studying Mysore Ashtanga, Iyengar and other forms of yoga since 2002. I began practicing vipassana meditation in 2004, and use it as a very important tool to help others gain mindfulness into key aspects of living.
The beauty in my approach to helping others is rooted in the variety and knowledge that I have gained through my self-development journey. I have studied conscious movement, 5 rhythms dance, dance therapy and bioenergetics. With all my experience, I have developed my own integrated techniques: body-mind-heart medicine, and body soul movement. And, recently, I began to study and incorporate sacred sexuality and tantra into some of my work, especially with women. I have been working with women on self-development and successful transition through different life phases since 2009.
Somatic Gestalt Counseling
Gestalt counseling is an existential and experiential approach, focused on personal responsibility and an individual’s process, to promote authentic change.
The focus is on what is happening in the here-and-now, and to become aware of any old patterns, conditioning, or traumas from the past that are currently playing out.
This approach is based on the relationship between counselor and client in the present moment. The trust and the intimacy created is the ground for an authentic self transformation.
Gestalt counseling is very effective. It provides creative, profound tools to become gently aware of your current thoughts, emotions, and behaviors without judgment. This awareness is the pathway to change – it leads to acceptance and openness to try something new.
My approach is deeply somatic, starting from what is present and felt in the body. You won’t talk about your feelings, instead you pass through what you feel to shift from a mind set of understanding to an integrated embodied awareness.
It’s fully Empowering to access your inner ability to heal.
Anything that is brought into the light consciously has the potential to be transformed.
In gestalt, we are looking at the inner human capacity to be creative and resilient toward life.
Massage with hands that carry the energy of a shamanic ritual. Arms spread beneath the Sun, receiving wisdom from the sky, Feet grounded in the Earth.
Holistic massage is a person centered treatment guided by principles of sensitivity, awareness and quality of touch. It involves deep, rhythmical stroking and kneading of the body’s soft tissues, that relax and balance the body and mind. Holistic massage rejuvenates and speeds up the body’s natural healing mechanisms, it has a profoundly calming effect on the neuromuscular system bringing about deep relaxation, restoring energy and settling emotions.
Massage is a therapeutic tool in its own right for aiding our ability to deal with stress. Excessive stress is a major contributor to disease and general ill health. It can cause energy to be blocked and muscles to tense up (in the ‘fight or flight’ reaction) and it can bring about mental and emotional anxieties, as well as a feeling of being unable to cope. As the rhythmical, soothing nature of the massage strokes releases muscular tension, the effects of stress are eased away, helping your mind to become still, leaving you calm and refreshed.
Holistic in nature, it aims to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms of disease, anxiety or excessive stress, and is adapted to meet each person’s unique requirements. Also, receiving this profound treatment is a deep self-observation or journey of self-knowledge, and can also be seen as a form of meditation and a powerful way of letting go of worries, fear and pain.
After the treatment you will immediately notice some of the effects of the massage. Many people report improved joint mobility and feeling taller, as well as the common sense of well-being.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
The Biodynamic approach has evolved into a remarkable body therapy that has created a highly skilled way of listening to the body’s inherent health expressions. The therapist typically looks for and encourages the forces of health to set the priorities of the session and to bring about natural adjustments from within the body’s own resources.
It is characterized by a strong orientation to the holism of the human experience where both the body’s anatomy and physiology are related to in real time with the subtle forces of life that act through the interface of the body’s fluids. Subtle movements in the body’s fluid and tissue fields are being listened for and the natural movement towards stillness is seen as deeply healing.
