Introduction

Vanessa is originally from Mexico, she has got a background on P.A. in Physiotherapy from previous University
studies, and Diplomas on several styles of Massage Therapy, including PNF (Neuromuscular Release
Facilitation), which is designed to align the body posture through therapeutic massage, assisted stretching and
muscular resistance techniques to reduce or eliminate muscular tension and increase range of motion, helping
patients to live without pain and dual aches.

Vanessa has also a background on Physiotherapy assistance, she has experience on assisting with Patient Care,
Clinical support, Administrative Support, Therapeutic activities, Retraining programs, Post-Stroke
rehabilitation, Early Stimulation, Pre/Post Injury treatments, and Chronic Pain management programs, helping
patients to achieve back their quality of living. As well as assisting on musculoskeletal therapy and Sport
rehabilitation programs.

After Accomplishing a First Place in the National Surfing circuit 2008, Vanessa was offered to become a
professional athlete and represent her country in the “ISA World Surfing Games”, which pursued for four years,
combined with Lifeguard duties and Surf coaching. This chapter gave her the experience on physical health,
sports and stretching exercises along her journey, and the awareness to share with others her passion for health
and wellness.

“My future expectations as an “Allied health care assistant on physiotherapy / exercise physiology” and as
qualified “Remedial massage therapist” are to contribute in the health care system by applying skills,
knowledge and partnership with other professionals and help patients recover and adjust back to their normal
and functional activities in life and manage physiological pain wisely. Creating and providing information
and health campaigns that will educate and help patients on common health issues, like pain clinics or pain
management programs would be a great contribution to the community.
