Natalia is an angel. I feel so blessed to have an opportunity to work with her! She has many amazing healing modalities that she custom fits to each client. She provides a warm and healing atmosphere so you at once feel comfortable and relaxed. I feel lighter, more energized and more inspired after my session with her. I look forward to my next!

I have been receiving regular healings and lymphatic massage from Natalia for the last 6 months and the effect on my health has been extraordinary! My skin is much clearer, my immune function and energy are much improved and I feel much calmer and happier. We are fortunate to have such a talented and open hearted healer in our community!

Natalia and her healing hands have been a great help to me. Her knowledge of how to improve the functioning of the lymph system and various organs, and how to remove blockages in the energy meridians is immense. I have had chronic neck pain and kidney-back pain for almost 20 years before beginning with her. After a few treatments of working on the tense areas of my neck, and shoulders, the pain has been reduced about 90%. The pain in my kidneys and back is also improving steadily. She knows how to use just the right amount of pressure to prevent excessive soreness during or after the treatment.
Also, for the last 2 years I had a regular occurrence of throbbing and pain in my lymph glands in various areas. After two short series of lymphatic massage treatments with Natalia, the pain has almost completely disappeared with no more uncomfortable throbbing, and only slight discomfort every once in a while. It feels like my lymphatic system is much less congested and working as it should.
She has a nice way of uplifting her clients with optimism and good cheer.
Iím looking forward to joining her Medical Qi Gong class to improve my immune system, general endurance, balance and kidney energy.

After being hospitalized and diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, I was having issues in all of my body's systems. My body was going haywire, and I was desperate for relief from my pain. I had tried acupuncture but felt no effect, and tried shiatsu massage, but would cry from the pain. I began getting lymphatic massage from Natalia, and her gentle touch started to turn my health around. My pain was diminished, and my immune system became stronger. I am so thankful to Natalia for helping me find different ways to make my body happy. Now I attend her Qigong classes twice a week, and I feel myself getting physically and energetically stronger every time.

Natalia is a gifted and compassionate healer. Her depth of knowledge and multiple modalities deliver results and quickly. After seeing Natalia regularly for a few months, my overall wellness and my emotional capacity for joy are both greatly increased. I cannot recommend Natalia more highly.
~ Cathie R. (Santa Cruz)
At first I was skeptical of the validity and benefits of medical qigong. It sounded like hocuspocus to me. However, based on a few symptoms Natalia predicted other symptoms which verified that my kidneys were deficeint. Then Natalia gave me a very simple movement and visualization, and the result amazed me. First, Natalia showed me the exercise to tonify my kidneys and then she coached me through it until I was comfortable with it. Doing the movement for only a few minutes was very powerful and transformative. I felt strong emotions coming up and much greater vitality. Wow! I highly recommend Natalia's medical qigong treatment for anybody seeking greater health and vitality!
~ Jason Parkinson (Santa Cruz)
During the first few weeks of school at Five Branches University my kidney qi had been very low. Even with Tui Na and Acupuncture treatments my kidney qi remained low. Natalia showed me one quick Qigong exercise to tonify my kidney qi and I was amazed at the immediate, obvious improvement at both my Kidney Yin and Kidney Yang pulse points. She is a great teacher with an obvious depth of knowledge and passion for healing.

Instant Emotional Release
I have been enjoying the benefits of emotional release assisted by Natalia. I decided that I should try to do this technique on my own at home. I am so encouraged by the results. I have suffered for years from pain in my right hip as well as my knees. When I decided that I wanted to let this pain go, my body was right there on my side and willing to let go of this crippling pain. It really is instant on many levels, and occasionally may take a little more time. I realized that this wasn't a big deal, because the pain took years to develop-so what's a little extra time to get rid of it? Natalia has given so much knowledge to me about the tools available to heal myself. What a gift! She is willing to give the information to anyone who wants to use it. I definitely am thrilled with the results. This is just the beginning of getting to my totally healed self.

Lymphatic Massage Therapy
I started to receive Natalia's lymphatic drainage massages one month ago. I initially took interest in lymphatic drainage therapy because I thought it would help with my sore and distended breasts that come and go with my menstrual cycle. Sure enough, within a month of receiving treatments from Natalia, I have had a very noticeable change in my premenstrual breast issues. I went from experiencing the distention and soreness for 2 weeks before my period to experiencing some discomfort for just a few days (less than week) before my period. Natalia provides a refined sense of professionalism and has a lot to offer in terms of life style suggestions to exercises that can help alleviate your symptoms. I have also had a lot of success with dealing with some emotional issues through working with the book "The Emotion Code" by Dr. Bradley Nelson, which she suggested to read right after our first session. Natalia certainly has a gift and I highly recommend her for body work but she will absolutely offer you so much more.

I came to Natalia for Lymphatic Massage after surgery to release stagnation and toxins from the body. Natalia helped so much with this. I didnít realize how many places in my body were in pain. Natalia found and released stagnation of shoulder pain for example. I couldnít raise my arm up, but after the session I could extend my arm and had full motion. My posture improved too. The massage also left me feeling very relaxed and light. I highly recommend Lymphatic Massage with Natalia. You will also be pleasantly surprised with all the other healing skills she brings to the session.
~ Susan (Santa Cruz)
I have been fortunate to have a number of lymphatic massage treatments from Natalia Roberti. She has wonderful hands, and is very intuitive and present. While most massage techniques work from the outside in, Natalia's Lymphatic Massage relaxes and cleanses from the inside out. The effects feel like a combination of massage and craniosacral treatments. I highly recommend her massages for relaxation, emotional release, and of course, for the numerous health benefits of lymphatic drainage.
~ Barbara Levitt (Santa Cruz)
Natalia was an exceptional student of ours who clearly has a natural gift as a Lymphatic Therapist. She worked for us for a few years and was highly appreciated by her clients. She was one of the best therapists in the clinic. Years after she left Santa Barbara, her clients and referrals are still asking about her availability. We highly recommend Natalia as a Lymphatic Therapist for anybody requiring this powerful healing technique.

I have been working as an acupuncturist for almost 20 years and I have never seen such an impressive effect of invisible needles which Natalia uses in her practice. The blood pressure of her patient was taken on both arms with a blood pressure monitor. On the left arm it started at 153/75 and 135/70 on the right arm. After Natalia did invisible needles on only two points and some medical qigong treatment for 5 minutes followed by an additional 4 minutes of the patient resting, the patientís blood pressure dropped dramatically, on the left arm to 130/70 and on the right arm to 128/70.
I have never seen such a fast result documented by a blood pressure monitor. The patient also felt no pain from insertion of the invisible needles, but the patient did feel sensations where the invisible needles were placed.
Invisible needles definitely work as powerfully or more than regular acupuncture needles so I highly recommend Natalia for invisible needle and medical qigong treatments.

I have had the pleasure of working with Natalia for about three years now. During my last treatment, Natalia decided to practice dowsing on me, for a case of food poisoning. I had been having nausea, vomiting and abdominal craps for over two weeks, and was skeptical that this method could work on something so physically powerful. Alas, my stomach has been healthy since, and it has now been 9 days!
~ Lishanna T. (Santa Cruz)
Natalia, I wanted to thank you again for the very helpful Tui Na Massage on my leg. Before your help, I could hardly walk, and after your massage and some stretching, the sharp knot of pain was gone. It was a miracle! It was also the most relaxing massage I've ever had; normally massages hurt but the Tui Na method feels wonderful and so soothing. Thanks again!!!
