MY PHILOSOPHY

"A happy body is a happy and efficient mind. Good therapies, good food, good thoughts and exercise are key to maintain a good health, oxygenate, heal and rejuvenate, which allow us to build up a satisfactory life style. "It feels great being responsible for the transformation my clients go through after the treatments because I am a results driven therapist and I genuinly care for your recovery. It is a truly rewarding job which I consider to be an art, the Art of Healing, the Art of Massage."

SHARING MY EXPERIENCE WITH YOU

After I finished my Quiromassage studies, where I found my path, it seemed as if "the doors" were opening for me to carry on with this enriching path and I was called to join a pioneer group in Spain of S.G.M. in the 2005.

I was invited to do the 1st of the three parts of the course for free! So I thought I'd give it a try. I ended up completing the whole course because I sensed how it was changing my life already. Learning about Philosomatics and Gestalt was revealing as it treats the persons as individuals instead of applying the same methods for everyone. That, translated to massage, was just beautiful to witness, practice and receive.

My companions where Italian, French and Spanish, a real eclectic and creative European mix.

The course always started with an hour long meditation to connect with our "centre" before practice, to be focussed. This is a habit I still do for some of my treatments, only a shorter version which I like calling Focussing. This meditation practice was followed by a personal feedback from us pupils and then, before going to practice, Miguel A., the teacher would talk to us about the meaning of Philosomatics, Gestalt and Sensitive Gestalt Massage. And then we'd learn and practice the wonderful approaches and techniques of this form of Corporal Counselling.

I made beautiful friends from all over the world as it was part of the course to do a Self-Experince week in Ticino, Locarno, next to the Lacco Magiore in lovely Switzerland, where we also had an introduction to Watsu (a form of Shiatsu massage in water) and Tansu (a form of mat work).

This course was a huge confirmation for what I really see myself doing which is helping people feel better in different levels by providing of a good sensible and professional massage therapy. I am a healer!

I feel that having studied Remedial massage has given me the knowledge and tools to be technical and precise on the more physical level, but after having studied SGM I know that massage therapy is more than a phisical work, more effective and beneficial when it is holistic as it embraces a higher spectrum of the individual human being. This blend of knowledges can be enjoyed at my therapies room and apparently it won't leave you indifferent!

After these enriching experiences I decided to dedicate myself to massage and I worked at: 5 STARS HOTEL/SPA SIDI SALER (Saler beach, Valencia, Spain). Here I performed spa, beauty, relaxation and sports massage treatments for the guests of the hotel and visiors. JAUME ROIG, PRIVATE BEAUTY CLINIC (C/ Jaume Roig, Valencia, Spain). Performed beauty treatments such as slimming massage, re-juvenating natural liftings and chocolate massage. MASAJES A 1000 (C/ Isabel la Catolica, Valencia). At the very centre of Valencia, performed sports massage, relaxation and massage on-site for the professionals of the area. Seated massage was a regular practice too.
