ABOUT MARIE-SOPHIE KIEPE

Marie-Sophie Kiepe is a holistic body therapist and wellness consultant based in Berlin, who is fascinated by the non-verbal art of healing. After a knee injury stopped her from pursuing her career as a professional ballet dancer, she started exploring the body’s intrinsic tendency to self-heal. She has studied Physical Therapy (BSc), Osteopathic Medicine (MSc), Public Health (MPH) and various movement approaches as well as Tibetan Energywork.

Before the incarnation of The Touch by Marie-Sophie, she found joy and success in working as a physiotherapist and osteopath in different clinical settings, in the global field of dance medicine (Vienna State Opera, State Ballet Berlin, National Sodre Montevideo) as well as in more alternative settings such as Nierika Medicine Institue in Mexico, guiding clients through deep, transformative healing.

Ever the alchemist, Marie-Sophie has developed The Touch – Unity, The Touch – Detox and Regeneration and The Touch – Oils and Herbs as well as the The Touch – Movement and Meditation.

Her mission is to help people to re-connect with themselves, to experience vibrant life-energy and embody wholeness through the senses.
