After studying physics and education, Andrea started his professional life as a research physicist, followed by work with international organisations and later as a security professional. Not being confused enough by his choices, he decided to add bodywork to the mix and studied Shiatsu and Tantric massage until progressively deciding to create his own strain of bodywork focused on consciously mixing pain and pleasure. Oh, and now he is studying psychotherapy too.
Since 2013, body- and sex-positivity have been at the core of Andrea’s activism and social engagement. He is focusing on organising low-threshold events offering safer, non-judgemental spaces and wider access to bodywork, emphasising emotional or sensual connections. A central tenet of his work is that the body is a key element in how we integrate emotions and thoughts; our own as well as our partners’.
