After a rock climbing accident resulted in an ankle injury, Manuel used massage as part of his rehabilitation and was amazed at the effect the manual therapy had on his recovery. Subsequently, he studied at Meadowbank TAFE in Sydney graduating in 1998. In order to focus on a more balanced work/life ratio he decided to leave Sydney and relocated to Perth where he began working with a range of Physiotherapy and Chiropractic clinics.
Manuel is experienced in managing and preventing musculoskeletal complaints ranging from headaches to lower back pain and common postural complaints. His focus is to aid his patients in becoming pain free and achieving more freedom of movement. He previously enjoyed working with various travelling sporting teams including the Irish Rugby Team and Melbourne Storm Rugby League Team.
Manuel has been passing on his knowledge and experience for 10 years as a teacher of the Diploma of Remedial Massage at Endeavour College of Natural Health and Challenger TAFE. He also holds a Diploma of Remedial Massage and has completed a Bachelor of Health Science (Musculoskeletal Therapy).
