My name is Riccardo Galeotti, I’m a qualified acupuncturist and movement specialist.
I have many passions in life, from the great outdoors, to beekeeping and (my latest obsession) carnivorous plants. But my greatest interest, my life-long passion, is learning about and understanding how the human body works from a holistic perspective. I have been practicing Classical Chinese Acupuncture for over 12 years, during which time my training has branched into other fields, including massage, personal training, and cranial-sacral therapy. Over the years I became more and more interested in understanding the body from a biomechanical perspective and it was in that pursuit that I discovered AiM. I attended my first Anatomy in Motion training course in 2015 and have been studying and applying its principles ever since. I have attended every immersion (6-day) course in Australia, including in a mentor capacity at the Lower Leg Mechanics course in 2019. Since online training became an option, I have participated in all the sessions offered. For me, the most useful and most difficult aspect of AiM is the Flow Motion Model. It’s useful because it gives you an analytical tool for understanding how the body moves and diagnosing where or why problems arise; it’s difficult because it challenges all the prior assumptions you start out with! The AiM approach teaches you to never assume that your immediate or first estimation of what you see or feel is correct – assess, move, and then reassess! This is the beauty of the Flow Motion Model: it takes time to learn and to apply it to what you observe in human bodies but once you grasp it… you can never let it go.
