Like most of the best therapists they commonly have come to their vocation because they have suffered their own hardship in life and this has provoked a need for them to develop a unique approach to healing and caring for the body.

Sometimes we call it the ‘wounded healer’.

But as it turns out, from our experience, they really are the best!

An aerial acrobatics professional and instructor for 10 years Eli decided to become a therapist after suffering a spinal injury while enrolled in a professional program for circus artists in Flic circus school, Italy.

Being injured opened his heart and mind to see how all of us can suffer, especially when you are an athlete or when life throws you a curved ball and you sustain an injury.  Becoming a physical therapist gave him the tools to not only rehabilitate himself but to help others.

The two fields of special interest and experience that Eli brings to our team are neurological and sports rehabilitation.

Eli has a degree in Physical Therapy from Tel Aviv University in Israel and is currently a ​MA student of Physical Therapy in Sports and Readaptation to Physical activity at Gimbernat University here in Spain when in 2020 he will graduate.
