Expert in

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

You will find me at


Spanish, Catalan, English and French

Acupuncture has always been my vocation. I find that traditional Chinese Medicine allows me to approach and treat the patient holistically. My 40 years career in this area has been characterised by continuous training and evolution and has led me to harmonise my knowledge as a doctor with alternative medicine. Participating in various specialisation courses as well as teaching and publishing various articles has allowed me to expand my knowledge which then I use to the treatments of my patients.
