Born and raised in Southern Africa amongst nature’s rich diversity and the energetic embrace it offers, Camilla was led to seek knowledge of holistic based natural medicines. Exposed at a very young age to herbal remedies and homeopathy through her mother, and traditional oriental medicine through family relative practitioners, where she witnessed natural solutions and realized the importance of prevention all throughout her life.
Always with a strong scientific basis, individual sessions and recommendations are tailored to the individuals wants and needs through the lens of Ayurvedic medicine, having performed one of her apprenticeships with Michele Po, a renowned Ayurvedic practitioner in Portugal. Traditional Chinese medicine too, is a rich and frequently visited point of reference, inspired by personal experience with author and Master of Chinese Medicine, Juvernal Branco. Camilla later studied Medical Astrology with Paul Beyerl, herbalist, astrologer and author, in order to further her knowledge of holistic healthcare.
Clinical practice along with high quality treatment procedure and performance was instilled in me during her time spent at Fitoclinic (in the heart of Lisbon) directed by Naturopath Vera Cupido
Camilla has comprehensive knowledge of toxicology, having being introduced to healthcare through many years of pharmacy work, coupled with sound experience in the analysis of both clinical testing, which elevates the quality of assessment, patient care and wellness. Camilla has also worked closely with integrative medical doctors including Dr. Pedro Veiga (Banyan Tree Spa) mesotherapy therapist and Dr. Luis Fontes (Oeirasmed Clinic) ozone specialist.
Shaman, Rocio Alarcon helped further broaden Camilla´s holistic approach to wholeness and healing: how to understand timeless connectivity, create therapeutic rhythm with the body, how to listen to the subtle energetic changes that occur within the body and how to then guide it to a space of healing through motion. Many ancient tribes in South America have practiced therapeutic abdominal and pelvic massage with profound results, ranging from the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and infertility. By bringing circulation to the abdominal and pelvic area and by removing adhesions through massage, we are able to address and help heal emotional pain/trauma and physical ailments.

This enables the best selection of methods to support patients in achieving the health goals and moving coser to homeostasis.
