Advanced Clinical Practice


Our seventh and last unit is a valuable asset for those wishing to become holistic medicine professionals, as its completion accredits students with a Reflex Therapist Professional Diploma.

Paulo Pais

(Founder, TESED and NVR – Neurovisceral Reflexology)

After having studied Clinical Hypnosis, Foot Reflexology, Iridology and Craniosacral Therapy, Paulo started his clinical practice in 2009. In addition to the therapeutic techniques mentioned above, he has also studied Chinese Medicine and Visceral Manipulation. Paulo thinks of medicine as a broad field of knowledge, and his positioning as a professional reflects this: from the onset, he looks at each human being holistically. Deepening this viewpoint, he founded the concept of Integrated Holistic Medicine (IHM) in 2011. During the following year, Paulo worked on putting into practice the IMH theory and developed two therapeutic methods, TESED and NVR, examples of how the body, mind and soul are three pieces to an integrated whole.

Susana Silva

Susana started her therapy and personal development training in 2007, and that was when she found her true passion – Reflexology. She later attended multiple seminars that focused on zone therapy, where she learned about emotional patterns and states of imbalance. She’s been training therapists since 2009 all over the country. As someone who constantly likes to evolve and learn, Susana was acquainted with a new approach to reflexology, popular in Northern Europe: Full-Body Reflexology, which marked a turning point in her clinical and teaching approach and since 2014 that she dedicates to teaching reflexology with her own method – Tesed Method.
