The Ayurvedic Pathway – Dipu

Dipu is an expert in Ayurveda, acupressure, Shiatsu and massage physiotherapy. His technique, which is very personal, is the result of many years of studying and practising in India, China, Japan and Italy. He is currently in the charge of oriental therapies at Fonteverde.

Dipu’s massages can free the emotional plexus, remove stress and transport the mind. His touch provides benefits for everyone: five days old is the age of his youngest patient and 93 years old is age of the his oldest patient.
