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.
