About Us

Know our Therapist

Let me to introduce myself.

With over 10 years of experience in the physical rehabilitation sector, I have always had a clear goal in mind:

Improving people’s quality of life

Due to this simple, but challenging moto, I have been continuously training in different specialities whereby upgrading my knowledge to the highest level for a quick and accurate diagnosis, followed by the best technical treatment with optimum results.

I completed my degree in Physiotherapy in 2010 at the University of Murcia, my hometown, in Spain. On top of that, I hold a 5 years postgraduate degree (2011-2017) from the Osteopath School of Madrid, achieving the osteopath certificate C.O.

 

My passion for manual therapy drove me to learn Orthopaedic Chiropractic techniques for a year too.

I have additionally completed further training and I have got experience working in water therapy, mostly by applying thalassotherapy on people with neurological conditions.

 

Moreover, I am a certified therapeutic Pilates instructor with 4 years of experience working in some of the best clinics of manual therapy and Pilates in Madrid.

 

After moving to the beautiful city of Edinburgh in 2017, I have been working with some of the best therapists in the city and I have also worked with the “Strictly came dancing” professional dancers. Such a great experience!

 

My personal hobbies include martial arts, particularly judo, with more than 15 years of continuous practice.

I also enjoy dancing Argentinian tango and Cuban salsa and I often join the lovely Scottish dancers’ community on my free time.

 

However, since the current situation makes these activities unavailable, I have discovered the joy of gym training, with a particulate interest in practicing CrossFit.

KNOW OUR MANUAL THERAPY PHILOSOPHY

Manual therapy is the compilation of every single hands-on technique that a professional therapist uses to treat a physical injury.

The Manual Therapy Clinic is the result of over 10 years of training and practice as a physiotherapist and an osteopath by its owner, Aránzazu López.

But, why physiotherapy and osteopathy together?

Physiotherapy

 

 

Shows the human body as an almost perfect instrument and gives to therapists the knowledge to fix it when it gets “broken”.

Osteopathy

 

Uses useful anatomy realignment techniques with a holistic point of view of the human body that helps the therapist observe their patient as a whole unit.
