when you touch one, you touch the other too" - Angelo B .

“If you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything.”
- Lao Tzu
WHO IT'S FOR
For those who want to feel more relaxed and present to themselves; to those who feel trapped in their own body due to past traumas; to those who suffer from back and neck pain, spinal pain, headaches, tension, problems with posture, movement limitations - for example following accidents or other.
Rolfing sessions carried out as a preventive measure help to improve the perception of one's body and one's emotional well-being. The Rolfing method is suitable for anyone of any age group, and is generally aimed at those who feel inadequate or experience chronic tension, those who are exposed to great stress in a professional environment or who want to improve their movements and perception of own body, for example by playing sports, yoga, dance, theatre, musicians.
Each session, personalized according to the needs of the individual, focuses on releasing tensions or blocks linked to traumas that limit the full expression of the self.
Based on the specific need of the moment,
the way of working is evaluated.
The Rolfer, in the characteristic specificity of each seat, does not lose sight of the basic holistic principle, making sure that the work carried out can be integrated into the client's structure in a comfortable and harmonious way.
WHO I AM
I am a complementary therapist, recognized by all complementary health insurance companies, I practice Rolfing® and I am a SEP somatic experiencing practitioner.
My name is Angelo Bigontina and I am originally from Cortina d'Ampezzo.
A great love for nature led me to graduate from the University of Padua in Natural Sciences.
Once I became aware that the best way to be in harmony with oneself and with the world around us is through bodily awareness, I immersed myself in the study of anatomy and the relationship between mind, body and spirit.
After various experiences and courses, I have personally experienced Rolfing sessions, which have transformed me positively, leading me to embark on the path to becoming an operator of the Rolfing method myself.
So at the beginning of 2010 I graduated from the Rolf Institue of Boulder in Colorado USA.
Since then I have been practicing this fantastic bodywork method, which in addition to bringing wonderful benefits on a physical level, helps those who receive it to be more aware of their body, also solving the blocks linked to traumas from our past.
Subsequently, to further refine the knowledge of mind-body relationships, I graduated in SE Somatic Experiencing.
