Founder of Casa Sakra, in 2009.

I grew up in Lisbon and throughout my adolescence I dreamed of being a professional dancer. It was Dance that led me to embark on the world of Internal and External Martial Arts, starting initially as a self-taught practitioner of Chinese Medicine.

In 2004 I graduated in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the School of Chinese Medicine and Nanjing University.

I practiced Martial Arts for 10 years and graduated in Yogatherapy from Swami Vivekananda University in Bangalore.

In 2009 I began my studies in Japanese Acupuncture by the Toyohari Association and since 2020 I have been dedicated to the study and prescription of Jing Fang, Classical Chinese Herbal Formulas.

Casa Sakra was born from a clear vision that success is based on the integration of knowledge and experiences in health and life.
