About Lucio

Lucio is a fully qualified shiatsu practitioner, graduating in 2012 from the Glasgow School of Shiatsu. He is committed to continued learning, and since graduating he has taken two postgraduate courses on advanced Shiatsu techniques, with an emphasis on treating back and neck pain and promoting hip joint mobility.

Lucio started developing an interest in Shiatsu as a massage therapy in 2004, when receiving Shiatsu helped him recover from a neck injury sustained whilst practising capoeira, a Brazilian dance/martial art that he now teaches. With a strong background in scientific research (PhD, then research assistant at the University of Glasgow), he has also been practicing chi gong, yoga and meditation since 2002.

He finds that Shiatsu can work as an excellent catalyst helping people to be more present, resilient and resourceful in their bodies, promoting increased wellbeing and vitality. Each session is tailored to meet the needs of the individual.

His teachers include Elaine Liechti, founder of the Glasgow School of Shiatsu, Vicky Smith, Lucy Trend, Ruth Anderson and Lynne Bates, and more recently Clifford Andrews.
