About

My vision and mission

Vision
Humanity is increasingly turning towards more technology advances and the speed of the modern-life style is faster than ever. It seems that more and more we are unable to sustain stability. And we’re dealing not only with our own individual difficulties but also our society faces environmental, political, social, economical, physical and relational challenges.

In order to cope with the rapid changes and the stressors a big counterbalance is needed to shift our vision, our values and our focus on what really matters to create more human connection, to re-learn listening the wisdom of the body-mind, finding sustainable solutions for development, etc.
And a very important step into this process is bringing awareness, education and practical tools to the resolution of trauma as a root cause of suffering, conflict and consciousness crisis.

Mission
TouchStudio is a soulful company that works with body oriented therapy for trauma resolution. It is inspired in core values like love, integrity and a deep commitment to support and educate people to reconnect with their intrinsic capacity to recover and heal. And so, people can find not only a profound sense of life purpose and fulfilment but becoming a positive inspiration for others as well.
