My name's Barbara and I was born in Rovereto (Trento - Italy), in may 1977.
Starting from my childhood, life has given me the opportunity to experience occasions that have led me to ask myself many questions about its meaning. In my adolescence, I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do in the future. At times I felt like I was on a raft, at the mercy of the rough sea.
Yet my Soul had made one thing quite clear to me: I wanted a job where I could support others, so I earned a degree in physiotherapy. But after only a short time working as a physiotherapist, I felt like dedicating all my time merely to the body, especially when concentrated only on the muscular and skeletal system, was too restrictive. So I began researching how to expand the field I worked in, and became an osteopath. This allowed me to work with a person entirely: on the body, but also considering the mind, emotions and the energy aspect.
But my search was not over yet. After a serious personal crisis, working and experimenting various healing paths on myself that are considered to be alternative medicine, all on the path towards reawakening consciousness... I found definitive proof that Human being is not just a body, and not just a body with a mind, but a unique and inseparable whole which also includes the Soul. For years now, I have been dedicated to experimenting with and learning the disciplines that I consider to be the most important and useful on a path towards personal growth and the reawakening of consciousness.
These are approaches that I use today and offer to others, helping them to develop: Dearmouring, Metamedicine, Family constellations, Past life regression, working in group or individually. I have studied energetic treatment techniques in-depth. I am also interested in meditation, which I have practiced for long time now. I'm a "Truth of One" resercher: I experimented that we are all connected each other and we’re linked to everything in the universe.
I'm interested in learning and experiencing about the concept of Human Potential: the awareness and lovingness that every human being has (and that eventually every person IS). But these quality are often hidden under traumas and inibithions... With active meditation, dance, emotional release techniques, we can rediscover our potential... We can find it throught the body work and the human empathic contact with other people. And when we connect to our potential... we are free to live our true life.
Animals deserve a special mention for how they have helped me on this path: their constant and precious presence by my side, even in the most difficult moments, has been really precious. I studied aspects relating to the physical problems of our 4-legged companions and became an animal physiotherapist (specializing in small animals), I furthered this interest by also studying animal osteopathy. After that, I again undestood how important it is to integrate the concept of an evolving soul in our relationships with them. Next I delved into the meaning of Human being/Animal relationship, realising how our friends are actually precious mirrors that are very useful for our self-awareness and for helping us with our inner growth. Today I am happy to help other people on their discovery of the deeper meanings that a bond with an animal can have, and to seek new, more responsible ways to take care of them. I support those who are facing a tough time, which can however become very rich if fully experienced: for example with an empathetic eccompaniment at the end of their animal companion's life. I embraced, for an etichal and spiritual choice, the vegetarianism more than 10 years ago.
I feel a deep connection with Nature, that helps in every process of healing and awakening of awareness.
“Illness and emotions are deeply connected”
Often when we get sick, we are so focused on the symptoms, that we forget to go hence to look for causes, still less when the causes depend on the mind and soul. The metamedicine aims to transcend the merely physical problem, seeking the emotional causes of disease, and providing the key to inner change that allows the self-healing.
The term “meta” comes from the prefix of Greek origin, meaning “to go further”. It is based on a holistic view, that considers how negative emotions or bad thinking that become a habit, end up being expressed in behaviors and postures, ways of being and illness.
This does not mean not having to act on a physical level, with the help of appropriate therapies, rather to be aware that there is another side of a disease, more intimate and involving inner conflicts.
The creator of Metamedicine is Claudia Rainville, specialized in medical microbiology. According to Claudia, and her book “Every symptom is a message”, our body would be able to heal itself, if we listen to the meaning of signals sent by a disease.
For example: if you suffer from recurrent sinusitis, there may be a person or specific situation, that you can’t stand; if you suffer from tinnitus, perhaps you are under too much pressure to solve a particular job or situation.
So, for metamedicine, to truly heal, next to a possible physical therapy targeted, you need to understand the inner source of the disease, the message that your Soul is sending you through your body.
Here’s some example of how the disease can be traced to the inner state of person.
The heart and circulation are linked to love and joy
This part of the body pump joy and love in our veins. Once deprived of these feelings, the heart is “cool” and circulation slows down. Anemia, angina, heart problems would be so connected to our attitude that keeps us away from enjoying the pleasures of life, focusing on the problems we have.
Your spine sustains you
When we have problems with the back, it could be because we do not feel supported. The upper part of the back is linked to the feeling of lack of emotional support. The central part, with the fear or guilt, with what we hide and we do not want to see. The lower part is linked to a fear of lack of money.
Our emotional issues and blocks can be born newly or they can have a root in the past, since we were children.
Metamedicine’s keys are based on thousands consultations given by Claudia Rainville during 30 years of career.
Understanding and loving ourselves can help us to get better.

A Family constellation is a group process that has the power to shift generations of suffering and unhappiness. Bert Hellinger, the founder of this work, observed that many of us unconsciously "take on" destructive familial patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, aloneness, alcoholism, failure, unhappiness and even illness as a way of "belonging" in our family system. Bonded by a deep love, a child will often sacrifice his own best interests in a vain attempt to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member. The study of epigenetics is now showing that generations do indeed appear to be connected through relational bonds.
Family constellations allow us to break these patterns so that we can live healthier, happier, more fulfilled lives. In a moment of insight, a new life course can be set in motion. The results can be life-changing.
Benefits of doing a Family constellation
There are many benefits of doing a Family constellation compared to the traditional methods such as counselling, coaching or personal development or motivational seminars.
A Family constellation is a brief, deep, experiential process, that allows change to take place for those who are really ready for change.
And allows space for:
- New perspectives to arise
- Acceptance, that require maturity, compassion and letting go of ego and past hurts. Acceptance of “what we can’t change is destiny”.
- Gratitude at what we have. And most importantly, for this life.
- Love for self and others. What is required is acceptance of where and who we come from, so that we can accept ourselves. This may involve resolving unfinished business from our earlier experiences and the release of family and systemic traumas.
Exactly how Family constellations work is something that has not yet been determined. It is a very common occurrence that fellow family members often feel the effects of a Family constellation even though they are not aware of a family member is doing this process. For this reason people don’t have to bring the family together in order to do a constellation for. The changes in you in finding a better place in the system, often provide a shift in the familiar energy field, that may be felt by others in the system. Any shifts in you often result in changes in the family bonds and the next time you meet someone from the family, you may observe changes in the connection. Even if this does not take place and others are not more receptive, the process enables the individual to find a better place, resulting in more resilience and harmony.
Family constellations can be used for our Animal-friends. The animals living with us (cats, dogs, rabbits, horses etc), they enter our energy field and in some way they connect with our family system. They are a precious mirror for the owner and with their diseases and behavior issues, they can show something appealing to him or her. So they can really be a tool for our personal development, bringing a pure Love frequency to us.
Past life regression has been extensively studied and popularized by Dr Brian Weiss - MD, who wrote several books on the subject. I attended a school that go after his teachings and guidelines.
Past life regression is a method that allows to recall important memories, often some very old ones, about a past life. This give us the oppurtunity to start a path of personal and spiritual growth, that ends in a real discovery of our inner world.
In this path we have the opportunity to look beyond today's experience, coming to events experienced during past lives and then return, with new awarenesses, to the present life.
Using this technique, we can better understand how some emotions of this life, perhaps uncomfortable, frustrating or irrational, but also blocks, phobias, anxieties and relational difficulties, have links with something that does not refer to the present day… but to a past experience, that somehow remained in the depths of the mind or soul and requests to be brought to awareness.
Remembering the significant events of the past, we could find recurring patterns, insights or real lessons, that it’s important to bring awareness to finally achieve a state of greater well-being and serenity.
The benefits you can get from past life regression are:
• enter in a path of awareness and personal growth
• understand the links between the present and past life experiences
• improve mental and physical well-being, thanks to the acquisition of greater awareness and reduction of anxiety and irrational fears
• improve relations with people around you
• understand the reason for things that appear to be irrational
Chakras are spinning wheels (or vortex) of energy. The universe and everything included in it have energy centers called chakras, that are connected with vital life forces. Our physical, emotional, mental/psychological and spiritual journey is reflected in chakras.
There are 7 main energy centers (master chakras). Each chakra is located throughout the body so that it correlates to specific body ailment and physical dysfunctions. Each energy center also houses our mental and emotional strengths.
When we have a physical issue, it creates weaknesses in our emotional behavior. And vice versa. When we release the stale energy from the body, it can undo any tightness, stiffness, or malfunction of that area.
Chakras can be deficient, excessive or balanced. They can be open or blocked resulting in positive or negative energies. If one chakra is imbalanced, the others will compensate and consequently they will also be imbalanced.
Osteopathy is a gentle and effective approach to health, a holistic manual medicine. It’s a method of treating and preventing a wide range of health problems, releasing blockages found in musculoskeletal, visceral or cranio-sacral systems. It uses a combination of movement, stretching, targeted deep tissue massage and manipulation of muscles and joints to improve function, relieve pain and aid recovery.
The body has the natural ability to maintain itself and, by helping this process, an osteopath can promote the restoration of normal functions. The principle of osteopathy is that the wellbeing of a body relies on the way that bones, muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and internal structures work with each other.
Blockages may be acute (as a consequence of physical or emotional trauma) or chronic (resulting from incorrect posture or repetitive micro-traumatism.) Due to its holistic nature, osteopathy may also provide relief for a wide range of other symptoms. A preventive approach is also possible.
This bodywork session works on the whole body to release stuck energy and stuck emotions. It is a deep emotional release process, that allows us to overcome trauma and blockages held in the body. The science has nowadays found several proofs that our cells have a memory where all the past overwhelming and traumatic experiences are held. It is an intense energetic healing technique supporting the body in opening up and letting go of what is not needed anymore. The traumatic and painful experiences the body is storing up, can be connected with a trauma happened from the early childhood until the present moment and they can even come from a previous life. A deep pressure or other kinds of touch is used on different points on the body to release physical, emotional, energetic and mental blockages.
Benefits of this session are:
- integrating trauma and past overwhelming experiences
- connection with your own life force energy and feeling it moving through the body
- relief of physical symptoms, pain and the feeling of being stuck and shut off
- Connection with your feelings, desires and better self esteem
- More resilience and possibility to cope with pressure and stress in life
- increase of energy and life force
- stronger connection, joy and flow in life
- Increased sensitivity in the physical body.
This session needs to be long enough because we cannot push the body to open up: we need to follow the process giving relaxation, ease and support to it. Therefore the session lasts between 2 hours and 2.30, depending on how the process unfolds. It is a deep and transformative process, able to really liberate and balance something in your system.
