Raúl is a Remedial Massage therapist who graduated at Max Therapy Institute with a Diploma in Remedial Massage.
Raúl also has two degrees in Physical Education teaching and Education Psychology back in Spain. He has worked as a Physical Education teacher and coached a junior handball team in the UK for two years. During his career as a professional handball player in Spain, he realised that many of his injuries were getting fixed through massage. Raúl looks forward to continuing his studies in Myotherapy in the near future as well as building up his knowledge in order to become an expert in the musculoskeletal system.
His background in Educational Psychology also gives him a good insight in how to approach clients and appreciate their situations and concerns. Raúl will lead you to the cause of the problem in order to treat it effectively and therefore fix it.
He is also a Spanish native speaker, so if you are more comfortable having the consultation and treatment in Spanish, you are more than welcome to do so.
His massages are based on trigger point technique, joint mobilisation and especially stretches. He will give you advice on stretches to do at home and also how to correct your posture. In addition, he includes myofascial release in his treatments as well as lymphatic drainage and relaxation massage.
