PHYSIOTHERAPIST, TRAINER & HEALTH COACH
I'm Koen Willems, from the Netherlands, born in 1977.
I obtained my title in Physiotherapy in 2000 in Nijmegen, the Netherlands and the title in Health Sciences in 2003 in Maastricht, the Netherlands. During both degrees, I chose to do additional courses in cognitive psychology and chronic pain to educate myself more in psychosomatic problems.
During and after my studies, I worked in the Netherlands, the USA, Canada, Germany and the UK. I had the pleasure of working in several private physio practices, a sports medical center and a job rehabilitation institute. Next to my work as a physiotherapist, I founded the ICARA institute for rehab in the workplace and a chronic pain management institute Real Health NL both in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. After coming to Barcelona in 2008, I seized the opportunity to follow my dream and start my own business with PhysiotherapyBarcelona and Running Barcelona. Over the last few years I have worked with clients from all over the world and had the pleasure of coaching the marathon runner Nacho Cáceres in the London Olympic Games in 2012.
I specialize in treating (chronic) back pain & sport injuries, health at job, running therapy and Health Coaching.
I'm Daniela, born in 1981 in Germany. In 2001 I moved to the Netherlands where I also completed my bachelor studies in physiotherapy in 2006. After this I went on to specialize in Orthopedic Manual Therapy, which I completed with my Masters in 2010.
After working in various physiotherapy practices in the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, in 2014 I moved with my family to the beautiful city of Barcelona.
As well as manual therapy I also specialize in dry needling, core stability training and pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain.
