Karuna Manning - AlmaVerde Shiatsu Massage


My eventful life started in Austria and let me live in many countries and experience numerous fields of work before finally settling in the Algarve in 2013 with my lovely girl. I have been teaching yoga since 2000 and practising Shiatsu since 2007. I also work with other holistic healing modalities.

I am thrilled to work and grow within the multi-dimensional system of Quantum Shiatsu, observing the amazing transformations in clients from one treatment to the next.

The treatments are beneficial for many afflictions and chronic conditions including anxiety, back, neck, shoulder and joint pains, post-stroke, headaches, migraines, cardiovascular diseases, digestive problems, insomnia, menstrual problems, later pregnancy, burn-out and tension.

But many come simply to recharge and enjoy greater awareness.
