Katia Paparella

Katia Paparella

I am a therapist, masseuse from Taranto.
I graduated 8 years ago at the CEAS school of aesthetics.
I love my job so much to chase it by changing lifestyle, place, city, nation working in many spas, wellness centers.
By intertwining of randomness I found myself returning to my city.
I am a therapist masseuse specialized in:
Relaxing massages
Couples massage
Sacral skull
Face roul
Lymphatic drainge
I press pressure
Stone massagge
Sportsman massage
Hawaian Lomi Lomi
Dinamic tape

But above all I love to make body treatments, face with natural products, invented by me …
How would I describe my job?
Massaging is not dancing hands on a person’s body:
It’s dancing with the soul of a person …
