The Lefay SPA Method Committee


Scientific Committee

All Health Programmes “I Flussi Dell’Energia” begin with an initial medical energy examination to determine the type of programme and how it is customised. This is carried out by a Team of doctors specialised in the various holistic disciplines at international level.

Back in Italy, he won two scholarships for a two-year medical-scientific project for the application of acupuncture in the Antalgic Therapy wards of the Civic Hospital of Padua and Vicenza.

Always passionate about the human being and psychosomatic subjects, she joined Lefay Resort & SPA Lago di Garda as a therapist in 2009 following a great development process within the company.

She specialised in Tuina and collaborated with the medical team on the creation of Lefay SPA Method treatments. After passing the necessary exams, Monica worked from Junior Therapist to Senior, Trainer to Lefay SPA Method Manager.

All the Staff members have completed their professional development within Lefay SPA, which is highly committed to the training of the Team, through a structured pyramidal growth path (from the role of Junior Therapist to the highest level, corresponding to the role of Coach). The SPA Staff’s training has been increased over time from in-depth training on massage techniques and notions of Classical Chinese Medicine through to scientific training on dermatology, cosmetology and food science. The Staff members are also trained in the most targeted communication techniques, to ensure a better approach to the Guests and other Team members.
