I started my career in 1995 with a degree in massage and physical therapy from the University of Granada in Spain. I moved stateside several years ago and received my license in massage to continue treating people with manual therapy in the Boston area.
My first approach to myofascial therapy started 10 years ago utilizing the myofascial induction using the Andrzej Pilat method. Once here in the US, I became certified by John F. Barnes in Myofascial Release I, Myofascial Release II, and Unwinding.
When working with patients, I first attempt to determine the cause of their discomfort and provide not only treatment but also guidance on how to improve their condition. When patients know the cause of their problem, they will become more actively involved in their own healing. Building this therapist-patient partnership is one of the most exciting elements of my work. Over the years, I have benefitted from leading an active lifestyle by swimming, biking, and minimalist running and was drawn to myofascial release, massage, and physical therapy so I could help others lead healthy, pain-free lives. Since starting this profession I have treated over 10,000 patients, and think physical activity, nutrition, and myofascial release therapy are fundamental to good health.
Individuals of all ages, abilities, and disabilities can experience the benefit of myofascial release. I have extensive experience treating athletes, those with sedentary jobs, patients with post-operative conditions, individuals with chronic pain, or those with stress or sports injuries.
There is nothing better than seeing a patient who has regained their full range of motion with no pain and is able to participate fully in all areas of their life!
