Alice Rigot - Shiatsu
Alice is French and lives in Lisbon since 2015. Although this is already the second time she lives here, after she spent the years from 1996 until 2002 to create the Lisbon Zen dojo. She met Shiatsu through the practice of Zen meditation and had the chance to meet a great Japanese master, Sasaki Sensei, a disciple of Matsunaga Sensei, founder of the Iokai Shiatsu Academy, with whom she studied the art of shiatsu in the traditional Japanese way. The important point in Iokai Shiatsu is how to get in touch with the human. Shiatsu is for her more than a professional practice, it allows to understand the human, to understand the other and to understand oneself because it engages the psycho-physical globality (mind-body) of the practitioner (shiatsushi) and the receiver (jusha).

Catarina Guimaraes - Reiki
Catarina is Portuguese and was raised in Macao and Mozambique. Growing up she learnt to deny her intuitive wisdom and reject everything that couldn’t be proved using logic. But life taught her that her path had to go through accepting her feminine energy, acknowledging and opening herself to intuition, sensibility and empathy. Her journey of inner evolution and healing has brought her to this point and now she dedicates herself to holistic energy work.
As a Reiki Therapist she also dedicates herself to energy readings (chakra readings).
Catarina has level 3 Reiki and level 2 Karuna certifications with the same Master – João Magalhães (President of the Portuguese Reiki Association) and she also trained and educated in meditation and Reiki for children. She truly feels like this is what she was put here to do she never felt more fulfilled.

A Catarina é uma portuguesa criada em Moçambique e Macau. Cresceu a negar a sua sabedoria intuitiva e a rejeitar tudo o que não podia ser comprovado pela lógica. Mas a vida ensinou-a que o seu caminho tinha que passar pela aceitação da sua energia feminina, abrindo-se cada vez mais á intuição, á sensibilidade e á empatia. A sua viagem de cura e crescimento interior trouxe-a até aqui e hoje dedica-se ao trabalho energético holístico.
Como Terapeuta de Reiki também se dedica a leituras energéticas (dos chakras).
Catarina tem o nível 3 de Reiki e o nível 2 de Karuna com o mestre João Magalhães (Presidente da Associação Portuguesa de Reiki). Tem ainda formação em meditação e Reiki para crianças. Sente verdadeiramente que esta é a sua missão e nunca teve um trabalho tão gratificante como este.
