In this episode, Nick and Ben are talking with Duccio Locati, Director of Psych-K®, a qualified osteopath at Psych-K wellbeing program. After obtaining a diploma at the Institute Superiore di Osteopatia in Milan, Duccio took a B.Sc. Ost. Bachelor of Science in Osteopathy, at Wells University, UK.

He followed several post-graduate courses in Osteopathy in Italy, France, England and the United States, to further his knowledge and understanding. As his interest in the connection between the mind and body grew, and as he discovered the incredible self-healing capacities of the human body, he extended his studies beyond the osteopathic field by attending a two year course in Biological Medicine, based on the 5 Biological Laws.

After reading ”The Biology of Belief” by Bruce Lipton, he continued his training by attending a basic and advanced course of PSYCH-K®. As he began to appreciate the huge potential, immediacy and simplicity of this methodology, he decided to become a certified PSYCH-K® instructor.

With an aim to be increasingly effective but also less invasive in his job, and for his personal growth, he has attended various seminars held by Cristobal and Alejandro Jodorowsky about family tree Psych Genealogy, learning about all the influences that it can have on different aspects of life and finding interesting connections with PSYCH-K®.

Having an inquisitive mind and always eager to embrace change, he took the opportunity to meet Serge Kahili, the leading exponent of the Huna philosophy from which a great deal of PSYCH-K® is derived, and to attend 2 intensive courses held by him. This experience allowed Duccio to deepen the awareness that changing our reality is not only possible but also a duty towards ourselves and those around us.

In 2011, Rob Williams, PSYCH-K originator, asked Duccio to direct the PSYCH-K Health and Wellbeing Program, The health and wellbeing program is designed to develop one’s ability to address the underlying beliefs that limit wellbeing or may impair physical healing — that is, to go to the psycho-physical/spiritual source of the problem rather than remain at the level of the symptoms.
