Aracelli earned her physical therapy degree in Uruguay in 1987, and practiced for 2 years before moving to New York City to join a private practice where her expertise included orthopedic, neurological, and chronic pain treatment. Her director, having noticed her gifted hands and healing touch, persuaded her to explore Myofascial Release. From her first class, she realized that she had found the ideal outlet for her healing gifts. Regarding her discovery, she says “through touch, you get a deeper connection and healing. To affect change is to slow down and connect with the patient”.
