Pablo hails from Spain and is an incredible Therapist. He has a degree in Physiotherapy and also Osteopathy. He is currently completing a diploma in Chinese Medicine.
Before joining the team Pablo worked with Scottish football including Hearts Football Club.
Main area of expertise
Spinal manipulation and visceral manipulation. The ‘viscera’ is the collective name of our internal organs, they can influence spinal pain and general well-being and Pablo has a unique approach to this fascinating area.
As you would expect, having worked in the world of professional football, Pablo is also very good at sports injuries
Stuart on Pablo
You can tell when you watch Pablo treating patients that he is an expert in manipulation. He personally treated my ‘viscera’ – my liver had a blockage apparently and with a few unusual maneuvers I felt a strange release sensation on my right side (if felt like a sucking sensation). I was then energised for the rest of the day. Interestingly Pablo didn’t lay a finger on my back but my lower back felt hot, like there was a hot water bottle on it. All very strange but wonderful. I knew then that we had someone special on our team. Pablo claims to be Spanish but he looks more Scottish than Spanish.

Stuart on Campbell
The best praise I could give Campbell is I am fed up of his patients repeatedly asking, 'when is Campbell coming back?'
His patients have missed him and all the staff have missed him too. He is one of the happiest people I know and a very sincere physiotherapist with great hands-on skills. Please ask him about his love for "Scottish discoveries", for example; places like Auchtermuchty, sayings like "sair heid", and food like "stovies" - it will make you laugh!
