My sincere gratitude to all my teachers and their schools

“My main aim is a personal and holistic approach to therapy”

My name is Sophia Vlahou. I studied Tourism Management at the University of West Attica. Initially, I worked as an accountant in large resorts.

Since 2005, I began studying, specialising and working in the area of alternative medicine, turning my passion into reality. I began studying reflexology and followed up with studies in massage techniques. Later, I studied Chinese Medicine focusing, mostly, on traditional Chinese acupuncture. Acupuncture is a therapeutic practice of great importance which is why, to this day, I continue to expand my knowledge and specialisation in it. 

Besides the above, I have specialised in anti-ageing techniques for the face, as well as detoxification techniques for both the face and body.

I also study fascia, the diagnostic technique which recognises the effects of emotions on the body; I provide NLP coaching, hypnotherapy and coach small groups in the Chinese technique of Qigong. Lately, I have delved deeply and have been practicing health coaching; I specialise in achieving it through a person’s heightened knowledge of oneself, boosting their self esteem, managing stress, chronic pain and body weight – the latter by means of proper nutrition.

My constant desire for growth and development, has led me to a continuous search for knowledge and creative activities, for myself as well as for others. My basic principle is that every person is unique, every soul special, every symptom an emotion’s effect on the body and every therapy a unique voyage of revelation and healing. The relationship between therapist and patient is one of trust. Based on that, I aim to provide the best possible therapy. That is why I combine a wide array of information from various systems, in order to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient.

My principles


Every person is unique, every soul special, every symptom an emotion’s effect on the body, and every therapy a unique voyage of revelation and healing


The relationship between therapist and patient is one of trust.


There is an element of positivity in every action.


After receiving every bit of information (positive or negative), we develop it.

My vision

The most profound result of every therapy provided is to balance one’s energy. This for me was the deepest motive in delving into certain techniques. My vision is to contribute, as much as possible, to a better quality of life, by offering help.  Specifically, I use my knowledge to “train” every patient to focus on their positive energy and balance, thus improving their daily life.
