Monica has always been passionate about the connection between emotions and bodywork and her area of special interest is helping people who have experienced trauma and anxiety. She has written an online course Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Anxiety Disorders which is accredited by FHT.

Between running her private Massage and Craniosacral Therapy business Elemental Massage Therapy in Essex and Central London, Monica is also a Tutor with Gateway Workshops, teaching Beginners to Advanced level Massage courses since 2019 and she is extremely happy to share her knowledge, skills and passion for massage and be part of a vibrant learning community.

Monica’s passion for massage has motivated her to create signature massages and has taken her travelling across Europe to compete at Massage Championships such as the World Massage Championship in Copenhagen 2018 and the UK National Massage Championship 2018 and 2019 where she has achieved several trophies for coming up in 1st and 2nd Place both years in a row.

Monica has also been selected as a Judge at the European Massage Championship in 2019 which was held in Italy and she described the experience as being a great privilege to witnessing different approaches to massage from Massage Therapists across Europe and is looking forward to witness some more this year at the NMC.
