Monica Paslaru

My passion for Massage has motivated me to create Signature Massages taking me travelling all across Europe

Monica Paslaru

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

In 2005 I graduated from University with a degree in Biotechnology. I had trained in massage to generate an income to support my studies, but I initially went on to other careers in the corporate world. I have worked in IT, Real Estate and Banking. However, every single job left me feeling like something was still missing. Although I was helping people on one level, I didn’t feel like I was making a real difference, and that sense of achievement was missing.

I decided to get back to the holistic industry when my son started to experience panic attacks and anxiety. I instinctively soothed him with massage and very quickly remembered how beneficial massage can be. Throughout his healing process, we came across other Holistic Therapies such as Craniosacral Therapy and I was fascinated to see how effective it was on him so decided to train and become a practitioner.

My interest in human well-being led me to leave the banking job 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 achieved 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 clinics from Essex and Harley Street, I have also started to teach private workshops and I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing my knowledge with my students. When the opportunity to teach with Gateway did arise, I was extremely happy to be able to share my skills and attention on a larger scale and I look forward to meeting you at my venue in Covent Garden to share my passion and expertise and be part of a vibrant learning community.
