Ilaria is from Karuna Thai Massage. She met Thai yoga massage for the first time at the Lahu Village in Northern Thailand in January 2011. Since then, she has immersed herself in it with passion and dedication, mainly studying with several Sunshine Network teachers and with the Italian teacher and osteopath Matteo Lucchini. The approach she feels closest to includes Osteo-Thai and dynamic Thai massage influences. She has been practicing Thai massage as her first profession as a therapist for several years now, and she is grateful to share that therapeutic experience.
