Marilia Blackburn All Therapies

Marilia Blackburn
in Congleton, Cheshire

My name is Marilia Blackburn and I am passionate about my work and particularly I love studying the aspects of healing in all levels, physical, emotional and spiritual.

Years of in depth study of science but also ancient philosophies and spirituality, achieving a Bachelor degree in Chemistry (Physical Chemistry) and an MSc (Physical Chemistry). My search of spiritual values and understanding of life and self-knowledge had taken a major role in my life and led me to my first contact with Acupuncture and other aspects of the Chinese tradition.

My findings brought about an important transformation in my life and I changed my career in Chemistry and an ongoing PhD to dedicate myself to the study and practice of Acupuncture. I started an in-depth study and qualified as Acupuncturist at the Associaçao Brasileira de Acupuntura (ABA) - Brazilian Acupuncture Society - and in 1991 I started my career practising Acupuncture and Acupressure.

My continuing search for knowledge and understanding of the complexity of our souls with the study of ancient traditions and theosophy led me to an initiation school, Sociedade Brasileira de Eubiose (SBE), where I have got in contact with very important and transformative knowledge and understanding of Life. But my life was about to go through another change. I moved to live in England, the place where I am carrying on with my life journey.

I concluded an MSc in Nutrition and Health at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2019 and in 2022 I concluded my training to teach Zhineng Qigong with the 3 Monkeys School of Qigong.

I would be naive thinking that my search of spiritual and self-knowledge had come to an end yet, I really do not think that it is possible to reach this intent in one life only. But I am sure that I can offer my knowledge, work and dedicated practice to serve those who are trying to answer that ancient call… "Know thyself" and consequently "heal thyself".
