Massari went on to earn her PhD and become a fellow of the British Institute of Homeopathy. After working in nursing homes, where traditional Western medicine was not meeting all of the residents' needs, she opened her own group of elderly care homes, and witnessed the restorative powers of homeopathy combined with a healthy dose of compassion.
