As a healer, osteopathy gives the opportunity of a constant study opening always new doors and changing the way I work every time I come to Boom. Several arts diplomas, many years traveling, many jobs, living with nature and meeting many different people, I found this sense of wholeness, the importance of love, sharing, and finally healing.
