Roula Papathanasiou works as energy balance facilitator.
Her driving force is the desire to help people improve their lives. She explores the intersections of spiritual practice, creativity and everyday mindfulness living in modern society. A process that has been immensely transformational for her life too.
She explores the intersections of spiritual practice, creativity and everyday mindfulness living in modern society.
Her studies started with Reiki, holding today the title of Reiki Master Usui Shiki Ryoho (traditional Reiki system), she then continued with Crystal Therapy and Reconnective Healing, before finding herself in Thailand. There, under the guidance of exceptional teachers, she started discovering her love for the profound touch through Thai Healing Massage and Osteopathy. She keeps visiting Thailand and Asia every year, constantly extending her knowledge.
She is constantly observing, how all aspects of life can be used towards awakening.
In her therapeutic sessions, she employs several techniques on different levels so that she can meet the core of every person and facilitate the therapy.
She uses a variety of modalities to connect with people’s soul, reveal their truth and remind them of “who they truly are”. She approaches the core issue of their imbalance (problem) whether on the physical or emotional body and she connects them to their trauma/ undeveloped parts. She creates a space where people can take some distance from the issues they’re dealing with, so that they gain a different perspective. This is an instant revitalizing process for everyone. After the session with her people report that they feel safe, calm, empowered, lighter, nurtured and often times they experience profound moments during the sessions.
In September 2021 she published her first book “The Wings of Change” (I-Write publication) where she explores the importance of living a conscious life during the inevitable changes. She inspires people how to get back in control and reminding them that they always have a choice on how to respond to the daily challenges. An opportunity for healing the trauma aka the victimized parts of them.
