She received her massage training at the Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork (PCAB) on Kauai, where she now serves as an instructor of relational skills, pathology, and various bodywork modalities. PCAB is a Relational Bodywork program that integrates affective neuroscience and somatic psychology with integrative massage modalities (Lomi Lomi, Swedish, Deep Tissue, CTM, NMT, Structural Integration, and Craniosacral). 

 

Aliki believes that the cultivation of safety, presence, and deep listening are essential elements of effective therapeutic relationships. Her bodywork sessions encourage somatic (mind/body) awareness and expansive breath as tools for her clients to experience agency in their own healing process. She is also in the process of receiving certification as a NARM-Informed Practitioner (Neuroaffective Relational Model in support of Complex Trauma).

A passionate plant-lover & storyteller, Aliki spent 2 years in intensive study at the California School of Herbal Studies and is working on curating ARTIFACT: an online archaeobotanical apothecary that will tell the stories of food & medicine cultivated by humans for thousands of years. In 2024, Aliki will begin leading archaeological adventures & self-care retreats in Greece.
