HOLISTIC BODYWORK PRACTITIONER
My name is Jessica Rizzo. Of Swiss and Italian origin, I was born and raised in Geneva. My taste for travelling led me to Berlin in 2011 where I lived for 10 years and now I am back in the city of Calvin to practice and develop the holistic approach that fascinates me so much.
A few years ago, I felt a great professional dissatisfaction and began questioning the direction my life was taking. In search of answers, I realised that I needed to take a path that would bring me more "meaning", especially in my relationship with others. Aware of my ability to listen, I felt a strong desire to accompany others in their personal development.
I began to engage in self work. I received body therapy sessions that allowed me to access a completely different experience with my body: much more subtle and in consciousness. This was a turning point. I began to feel physically and psychologically healthier and started to feel more free and fulfilled.
Today, I am continuously training myself in the Holistic Bodywork approach and in the practice of Sensing yoga. It is by fusing these multiple techniques that I've been able to develop my own style of bodywork. Additionally, for self-improvement and the best experiences for my clients, I am continuing to discover, study and then apply newly learnt techniques and tools during my sessions.
This profession not only allows me to express myself more freely but has been an immense source of joy. I feel fulfilled by this opportunity in which I can help contribute to a better world.
APPROACH & PHILOSOPHY
A holistic approach looks at the whole person, considering all of the dimensions to his or her being: emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, professional. It is about going beyond simply treating the symptoms.
My Holistic Bodywork approach is inspired by several disciplines including the Grinberg Method, the Pantarei approach, Thai Yoga massages, acupressure, and the polyvagal theory.
My approach allows you to reconnect with yourself and embrace the art of living. I accompany my clients and guide them in the exploration of their life path, of better being, of understanding and acceptance. It is through this approach that you can realise the extent of your resources and approach a state of inner peace and balance.
I want you to take care of your essential needs and feel the freedom to express who you are to yourself, and also around your surroundings.
Taking control of your life is a journey towards self-awareness, self-knowledge and self-love: a step-by-step process. Therefore, active participation and commitment to this process of development and expansion is essential.
Thaï Yoga Massage
A Thai Yoga Massage stimulates pressure points to open the body's energy pathways and allow the body to heal. It is a more active type of massage than a traditional massage, with different yoga poses that allow for deep stretching.
Holistic Bodywork Session
Holistic Bodywork sessions include touch, verbal communication and movement. These tools, along with my listening and empathy skills, allow for a somatic experience in which you will be supported and guided.
These treatments are performed on a fully clothed client. Please remember to wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows for movement.
These are not passive treatments; the client is fully engaged in exploring a meditative space through movement and breath.
