About the Instructors:
Roberto Iusso R.Ac
Roberto’s interest in Eastern healing practices began over 20 years ago when he undertook courses in Zen meditation to overcome anxiety and fears related to university examinations. Subsequent meditation practices led him to South Korea where he continued meditation practices, frequently taking courses and workshops at Hwagyesa Zen Temple in Seoul while also teaching ESL.
A knee injury during a Taekwondo training session led him to the discovery of Korean Hand Acupuncture Therapy, which he then learned and utilized over many months of self treatment to recover from his injury.
