About me


Hey, I am Simona. I started Abuelita’s Wellbeing during the lockdown, a project that kept me engaged and gave me much needed motivation during those uncertain times.

​I am a massage therapist, a social entrepreneur, and a creative at heart. After a prolonged period of poor mental health, I made the decision to gift myself regular massage sessions to help with my recovery. These sessions helped me to begin to overcome the struggles I was facing and to feel embodied again. This experience gave me insight into the depth and potential of the mind-body connection and inspired me to become a practitioner myself. I wanted to give back what I had received through regular self-care and a wellbeing routine.

My journey has helped awaken my intuitive side, which complements my professional skills. I have a passion for Anatomy and Physiology, Bodynamic, and the Somatic approach to the mind-body connection, which I study in my free time.

I offer a safe space for all of you looking to heal. My work is based on kindness,  non-judgment, inclusivity, and confidentiality. I truly believe we can change our future and discard what's not needed when we find the right support and allow ourselves to receive that support. 


Alongside my massage therapies, I am building a Community Interest Company with a heart.

Its mission: to make wellbeing treatments more accessible to those struggling with mental health challenges,

from an economic and/or social disadvantaged background. 

Any purchase or donation on this website, contributes to supporting my journey.

and sustains my non-paid work with the CIC.

I am extremely greatful for the support. Thank you!


Simona Ilincariu
