Moises Ferrandez Gea

Principal Osteopath & Owner

Moises graduated in 2012 from Oxford Brookes University, with a Bachelor Honours degree in Osteopathy. He then spent 5 years working in New Zealand as an associate osteopath at a multidisciplinary clinic in which he treated a great variety of patients and conditions. He returned back to Spain in 2017 and continued expanding his knowledge and experience at a private clinic.

He is very passionate about his profession and enjoys working with adults and children of all ages. He uses a diverse range of osteopathic techniques including soft tissue massage, mobilisations, manipulations, stretching, visceral, fascial and cranial techniques, amongst others, to ensure the best possible outcome. He has done and continues doing extensive post-graduate training to further his skills, such as courses in paediatric osteopathy, obstetrics osteopathy, cranial osteopathy, visceral osteopathy and sports injuries.

Moises has great experience in managing the body as it gets older. He believes keeping mobile is the key to health and independence. He offers treatment and advice to help improve mobility, circulation and balance, reducing joint stiffness and pain, helping you lead a more fulfilling life. He has had great success in treating chronic pain and is very passionate about finding the real cause of the pain and treating the source to reduce the chance that it may occur again.

Being an extremely active individual from an early age, Moises has a love for the outdoors and all sport. He has special interests in treating, managing and rehabilitating sports athletes, having worked with Canterbury United Football Team, triathletes, tennis players, rugby players amongst many others.

Other osteopathic interests he has are treating babies, children and pregnant women. He is enthusiastic about seeing children bounce back from traumatic birth, colic, playground injuries or childhood illnesses so that they can continue to grow and develop into healthy young adults. Similarly, he believes that osteopathic care for pregnant women can help provide welcome relief as the mother’s body and posture continually compensates and responds to the baby’s growth. With gentle hands on treatment, he will aim to maximise the body’s ability to change and support itself, minimising the pain and discomfort that so often comes with pregnancy.

In his time working in New Zealand and Spain he managed to build an extensive trusting clientele, thanks to his undeniable commitment in returning his patients to optimal function and health to maintain and enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.

It all started after finishing her training in the fitness sector with the certification of Fitness instructor and Personalized Training - Official certification by the Royal Spanish Academy of Gymnastics (European Health & Fitness Association).

After working in a number of different companies within the fitness sector, Cristina realized that she wanted much more, and set out to create her own business and fitness program; she named it Fitness and Holistic Training. With a personalised fitness system, she is able to more efficiently help people to exercise properly, safely and effectively; helping each person to transform their life through conscious exercise and healthy lifestyle habits.

Her speciality:

Some of the tools she uses:

  • Advanced knowledge about: biomechanics, muscle activation, functional training (cross-training, HIIT, tabata), pilates and yoga.

What really differentiates Cristina within this sector is her holistic approach. This involves a mix between fitness, yoga, pilates with other very powerful tools, such as coaching, mindfulness, emotional intelligence and bio-deprogramming. We also offer a training program that is delivered through both courses and workshops, for clients and professionals in the sports and fitness sector. These are aimed at improving posture, as well as improving sports performance and avoiding injuries.

Up until the age of 15, she participated in several district competitions, both individually and as part of a team, in Valencia and the Canary Islands.

Amanda has always been captivated by dance, and so she also began to perform in different musical styles, in countries across the globe, including Spain, Holland, Switzerland, Morocco and China.

Amanda trained as a Pilates and Hypopressive instructor in 2017, to improve her postural hygiene and physical condition. She is now a member of the Spanish Sports Federation and the International Pilates Federation. In 2018, she went to Rishikesh, India, where she began her career as a Yoga instructor with Yogi Dinesh Chandra at Om Shanti Om school. There she acquired spiritual and ancestral knowledge which she describes as “what gave my life it’s true meaning”, “I followed the path of health, equanimity, harmony, balance, love; and the union of it all”.

In addition, Amanda is also an expert in Reiki. She achieved mastery in India in 2019, with Guru Swami Prakash. Currently she is studying Massage Therapy and Osteopathy in Orthos School (Alicante); knowledge that she will use to help people in a more effective manner.
