An impressive, highly respected and very efficient manual therapy, Chinese medicine, pilates and personal training centre with a holistic approach to health. Also nutritional coaching. One of the best in the city.
Armonic Body is a manual therapy, Chinese medicine, pilates and personal training centre created in 2005 by Noèlia Martínez. It may sound like just another therapy centre, with a few professionals specialized in different areas, each doing their job disconnected from the other. However, the truth is the complete opposite, and many singularities make Armonic Body stand out amongst other centres.
Many years ago and after a personal experience, Noèlia had a dream while she was studying to be a nurse: to create a holistic centre to treat the person as a whole, placing a lot of importance on food. This is the first difference between ArmonicBody and the rest, and it is not a small one: what’s the point of a health centre which doesn’t help its patients eat better? This is why you might go because you have a pain in your neck and you could come out with a list of recommendations to improve your diet (and without the neck pain, of course). Noèlia knows her facts, and one of those facts is that we are not the sum of our parts, but a whole being and it is essential that diagnoses and treatments spring from that premise. Sometimes to solve a back ache one must change some aspects of one’s diet; other times it might just be a bad posture when we sit. The same symptom may be caused by completely different things and you need an experienced person who knows how to read the body, interpret the deep causes and apply the most adequate techniques in every case.
And this takes us to another important aspect of Armonic Body: they don’t apply the same technique to everyone; they adapt themselves to everyone’s needs to offer custom-made attention. This sounds obvious, but there are lots of centres which treat patients like pieces in an assembly line. This is not the case. The basis of treatment applied here is active listening and a good diagnosis. This is why they never apply a sole technique, but rather combine different techniques within the same treatment to achieve a better result. Why? Because, as we mentioned earlier, experience tells them that a symptom is not triggered by a unique cause and therefore, it cannot be treated using a single technique.
You can also give health to your loved ones by giving them the ARMONIC BOX, a present box with 15 different treatments to choose from and even receive your treatment in your own home.
Currently, there are 5 excellent professionals working at Armonic Body besides Noèlia; Mònica Díaz, acupuncturist, masseuse and reflexologist; Ixone Zudaire, physiotherapist, expert in feet wellness and sport masseuse; Sanna Saarinen, pilates teacher and personal trainer; and Marina Denys, physiotherapist and pilates teacher. All of them are highly qualified and long experienced, which allows them to improve or eliminate the symptoms and especially, to treat the root of the problem. The range of possibilities is huge: do you practice sport frequently and need tuning up from time to time? They have expert hands. But also if you tend to feel tired for no reason or you find it hard to get to the end of the day, if you have problems with your digestion or going to the toilet, if you have back ache, or headache or migraines, or if you need osteo-muscle rehabilitation, just to mention some examples. You will find sports massage, therapeutic massage, post surgery treatments, manual lymphatic drainage, auricular therapy, kinesiology, zone acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, foot reflexology, cupping therapy to treat pain, abdominal diagnosis and treatment, nutricional coaching and team and project coaching. Everything applied with the utmost care, meeting the needs of every patient and with the firm belief that, like Noèlia says, “living better is in our hands”. And if we don’t know how, in Armonic Body they give us a hand.
