I am passionate about taking pain away from people and encouraging them to initiate small changes in their daily lives so that they can address the cause of pain, injury and illness. Through manual techniques of Physiotherapy and Osteopathy I seek to remove the pain immediately. And with Psiconeuroimmunology strategies, we regain health through anti-inflammatory food, supplementation, exercise, techniques to have more energy, sleep better and have less stress. In the consultation I use Kinesiology which is a diagnostic method that allows to identify which organs are functioning less well and that need to be worked on. People are very fond of going out with less pain, less tension and more freedom.
