Interview with Physiotherapist Alessia
What’s your background?
I graduated from Physiotherapy in the University of Varese Italy at the end of 2007. Since then I’ve been travelling to experience different cultures and different ways of studying the human body, as well as different therapeutic ways to work with it.
What do you specialize in?
As a physiotherapist I have a good knowledge of anatomy and muscles, so I’m confident in deep tissue treatments that release contractions and relax muscles. My speciality ranges from the resolution of a specific problem to the overall relaxation of body and mind. I also practice reflexology and facial massage which I studied in Thailand and India.
How long have you lived on the island?
I’ve lived in Ibiza since 2009 and I’ve been working with Ibiza Balance since 2012.
What’s the best part of your job?
Seeing good results and making people feel better. In addition, an exchange of energy with my clients.
How did you gain your experience?
After I graduated I did many courses in Italy, Ibiza, Thailand, and India. I also lived in Madrid where I started working in Medyna Mayrit – a spa in the city. In Ibiza I started working with Ibiza Balance, and during winter I worked in spas in five star hotels in the mountains in France and Italy. Some of my clients’ favourite treatments include:
- Sports massage
- Deep tissue massage
- Thai massage
- Ayurvedic facial and head massage
- Relaxing holistic massage
- Drainage massage
- Massage for pregnant women
- Detoxification massage
What sets Ibiza Balance apart from the rest?
I like to work with Ibiza Balance because it uses a very clear booking system and because the team are encouraged to increase their knowledge and self confidence. And it gives me the opportunity to work with people from all over the world because its client base is so international.
