Monica Paslaru

Since childhood I have been interested in healing and helping people – but life initially took me on a different path for a while.

My interest in human well-being led me to leave the corporate world to set up my own full-time business as a Wellbeing Therapist and it is from here that I have progressed to my current level of training, knowledge and experience. My area of special interest is helping people who have experienced anxiety, trauma and panic disorders.

My passion for Massage has motivated me to create Signature Massages and has taken me travelling across Europe to participate at Massage Championships such as the Worldwide Massage Championship and the National Massage Championship where I was awarded 2 Gold Medals.
More recently, I was selected as a Judge at the European Massage Championship in Italy which was a great privilege and an amazing experience.

Between running two wellbeing clinics from Essex and Harley Street in London, I am also teaching Massage Courses for Gateway Workshops and thoroughly enjoying sharing my passion, skills and expertise with my students and be part of a vibrant learning community.
