I was born in a small town next to the sea on the Pacific coast. I lived in Argentina until 2001, when I decided to travel to Barcelona. I fell in love with the city, its people and the warmth and colours of the Mediterranean. I decided that it was the city I wanted to live in. When I finished my studies in photography at the ‘Institut d’Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya’ I started working as a freelance photographer, taking portraits and fashion photography.
During this period, I particularly focused on the female form. I was interested in its beauty and expressive potential. At the same time while I was photographing them, I realized how little awareness many women had of their own bodies. So I promised myself not only to keep taking photographs, but also to take part in a wider project to empower women and make them more aware their bodies, beauty and sensuality.
This vocation in the world of beauty and my interest in the health and wellbeing of women motivated me to study with professionals in the therapeutic field. I quickly learnt that the happiness and well-being of women go hand in hand. This is a holistic vision where there are physical sensations, self-knowledge, nutrition, body enjoyment and relationships with others.
I began to understand that women’s wellbeing and self-fulfilment could improve by exploring all the senses. I learned to observe them, both individually and jointly. From this experience, I built a method to work on the combined senses, and I called it ‘9 sentits’ (9 senses).
I am convinced that every single woman is a wondrous creation and learning how to enhance each sense is the key to pleasure and wellbeing.

I was born in Barcelona and have lived and worked in many countries such as Ireland, Mexico, Senegal and the Canary islands. I am a therapist and nutritionist. I have trained in naturopathy and traditional Chinese medicine. I have also studied different massage techniques like lymphatic drainage, Californian massage, traditional Thai massage, craniosacral therapy and Taoist massage of the inner organs; ‘Chi Nei Tsang’. I particularly love studying the body and spirituality. Many years ago I focused my work on female empowerment; leading their life through self-enlightenment of their bodies, energy and femininity. Due to my interest and experience, I have put all my enthusiasm, knowledge and commitment into this project: 9 Sentits.
