Ana Maria

Professional Holistic Therapist

Hello I am Ana Maria Pavani.

I became a Holistic Therapist in 2013, after having a different range of treatments to help heal my own wounds. This natural approach worked very well – more than I expected. Then I decided to qualify in complementary therapies in order to support others.

In 2013, I gained my diploma from the Bridgwater and Taunton College and became a registered member of The Federation Of Holistic Therapists (FHT), The Guild Beauty and Holistic. For the past years, I have been working as a mobile therapist and also in spas, including the Harbour Hotel in Sidmouth, Eden collection Hotels and Spa.

I attend as many training courses and CPD (Continuous Professional Development) events as possible to keep myself up to date with current practice. I have also added new skills such as PhytoEnergy Therapy (working with plant energy in healing processes) Crystal Therapy, Meditation, Systemic Constallation (It is a therapy of the soul, the profound states of consciousness, which works our deep collective)  and a wide range of massage therapies.

Stress management and self-care are key elements of my work.

Holistic Massage therapies, energy unclogging and energy replacement are excellent tools for relieving headaches, migraines, back pain and chronic pain (such as fibromyalgia). Balancing energy levels is an effective way of naturally reducing stress and anxiety and bringing you back on track to easily manage day to day life.

I have a special interest in supporting people through stressful and traumatic times which often affect health and result in physical, mental and emotional symptoms of anxiety; depression; digestive disorders; fatigue; irritable bowel syndrome; insomnia, etc.

A holistic approach in consultation and treatment differs from the conventional.

Instead of focusing on a specific diagnosis, we take into account all factors which have the potential to affect health. These include lifestyle, environmental influences, stress factors, diet, medical history, sleep patterns and past traumas. My treatments are individually tailored to improve all symptoms which cause discomfort.

During the last few years I have observed the benefits of using stones and essential oils in treatments. As a result, I have undertaken Crystal Therapy training and regularly use crystals alongside massage therapy to release unseen blockages.

I am currently studying for a Diploma in Counseling which will also help me to treat emotional difficulties.

My belief is that the body is a self-healing system. If correctly balanced and reintroduced, the process can lead to vitality and life improvement.

I have clinic at The Salty Monk Sidford- Sidmouth Devon.
