I started my studies in 1998 at the National College of Arts and Trades in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic. My initial studies were massage for babies, Hawaiian massage and lymphatic drainage. ? After working for several years as a massage and beauty therapist for Payot Institute in Santo Domingo I packed my bags and moved to Madrid, Spain in 2002. There I complimented my previous studies by attending the Higher College of Paramedical Techniques, sponsored by the Portuguese Institute of Naturology. This course covered a wide variety of massage techniques including, sports massage, deep tissue, head, neck and shoulder, massage with towels, moxibustion and cupping amongst other things. ? In addition to this I studied at the Spanish School of Traditional Thai Massage. We learnt from massage therapists who have studied in Thailand at some of the most prestigious traditional medicine schools, like Wat Po, as well as studying with the Buddhist monks who practise the most authentic and traditional Thai massage style. ? Alongside my studies I ran my own business as a massage therapist, working from my home in the centre of Madrid for several years building up a loyal client base before moving to Manchester in July 2012. ? With experience across a broad range of massage techniques I am able to combine the various different styles in order to treat each patient more effectively according to their needs.
