I have been a masseur trainer at European Spa Training School – Euespa – since 1999, being at the time the youngest school director in Spain, and I have a wide and international experience on massage and spa techniques training.

I have been collaborating for the last nine years with Toni Bové, physiotherapist at Football Club Barcelona, designing together a functional bandaging course for Natura Masajes.

I obtained my massage teaching title at the Manual Massage School in Barcelona, with Dr. Sagrera, known for introducing the technical massage into Spain.

With the experience of more than 1000 students' trained, I have also long been a consultant for several cosmetics brands, such as Duaner Laboratories.
