Dr. Linnea Passaler is a multifaceted health professional whose life and career have been driven by a passion for learning and her desire to assist others. With a degree in oral medicine from the renowned Universitá degli Studi in Milan, she interned at HSR Research- Ospedale San Raffaele – an advanced molecular biology facility located there. This experience kindled her interest and enthusiasm for research and immunology specifically. However, she soon discovered that she wanted to work directly with people, leading her to specialize in oral medicine, oral pathology, and oral surgery.
She graduated with a two-year clinical study on the oral effects of bone marrow transplantation, which allowed her to develop a unique understanding of the human body from a holistic perspective by studying oral health. This perspective became the foundation of her work and her deep respect for the whole body, mind, and spirit connection.
After becoming disillusioned with the rigidity and lack of equity in academia, she went on to become an oral surgeon and a full-time clinician for 15 years, specializing in implants and bone regeneration. Throughout her career, Dr. Linnea remained committed to empowering people to advocate for their health, which led her to launch a digital startup called Pazienti.it. With millions of users in Italy, Pazienti.it quickly became a fast-growing health startup.
Dr. Linnea’s pursuit of success and her dedication to empowering others came at a cost: her high-functioning anxiety led to burnout, rosacea, and IBS. Her life-changing journey toward personal healing opened her eyes to the importance of somatic work, mind-body approaches, and attachment theory. Dr. Linnea also became interested in sensory processing sensitivity after her children struggled with behavioral issues and needed occupational therapy.
