Manuela Capursi

Manuela commits to practicing Bodytalk with compassion. Whether your healing is physical, psychological, spiritual or emotional, she is passionate about finding your pathway to a healthier you in a comfortable environment..

“I am continuously amazed that something so simple can have such a deep effect, on so many levels and in such a gentle way – BodyTalk truly is the coolest thing on Earth!” 

Manuela Capursi (Black) was born in Italy, the second of 4 children in a traditional Italian family. She was raised, for the most part, in Germany and moved back to Italy at the age of 13. 

It was hard for Manuela to settle to her changing environment at such a young age, but even as a young teenager, Manuela was a natural listener and had a deep interest in human behaviour. She was very much in tune with how situations affected not only her, but the people around her. 

In 1994, she visited and eventually settled in Barbados, where she later became a language teacher and department head at a local College. 

Throughout Manuela’s changing settings there was always one constant in her life: her interest in holistic therapies, spiritual development and human behaviour. This drive compelled her to explore more and she began to engage herself in Yoga and Meditation. In 1997 Manuela qualified as a Reiki II Practitioner in London, UK. 

Despite Manuela’s dedicated pursuit for self-awareness and self-exploration, she struggled on and off with anxiety and depression. This manifested itself physically in the form of digestive disorders. In her determination to wean herself off the  traditional medication she was prescribed, she expanded her understanding of the many benefits of alternative healing by completing additional courses in Personal Development at the Option Institute, USA. 

It was through these forums that she discovered the concept of ones Belief System; The filters through which we see and react to the world are all anchored in our beliefs. This powerful message is something that continues to guide her work to this day. 

In 2014, whilst striving to adapt to a very strict diet for her candida symptoms, Manuela was referred to a Bodytalk practitioner.

Following her first session she felt ‘light’, as if something had ‘shifted’. Her pathways were beginning to ‘open’ and she could physically feel her body realigning and repairing. After just a few more sessions she felt different: more calm, the anxiety had lifted, and candida symptoms started to improve

Her experience had such resonance, it inspired her to become qualified in the Practice. Bodytalk was her calling! 

Within a year Manuela became an IBA certified BodyTalk Practitioner. She also completed several other advanced BodyTalk related courses.  

As well as finding personal fulfillment in the practice of BodyTalk, it is the ability to help guide the positive changes in her client’s lives that drives her motivation. BodyTalk also acts as her mirror. With each client she learns so much more about herself, with each session she gains personal growth. 

Manuela Capursi first started practicingBodytalk in Barbados as a qualified practitioner in 2015 and started her clinics in the same year. She practices from premises conveniently located on both the South and West Coast of the island.  Manuela is available for in-clinic or distance sessions and can be reached at:
