Carol Gordo, DO Osteopath
I've been so fortunate enough to work as a Physiotherapist in Spain for over five years, helping patients of all ages with various health issues. I'm proud to have worked in multiple private clinics, where I've learned so much along the way!
During my time in Spain, I began to focus on women's health and babies. I found that these areas of healthcare sparked a particular passion in me. As a result, I've developed a wealth of experience in this field, and I feel so grateful to be able to help new moms and their little ones!
Despite my experience, I felt like something was missing from my approach to patient care. That's when I discovered Osteopathy. As an extension to my background in Physiotherapy, this new holistic approach to patient care allows me to view my patients as whole people, with physical, emotional, and psychological needs. This resonated with me on a deep level, and I knew it was the missing piece of the puzzle.
Since then, my goal has been to empower patients to take an active role in their healing process. I strongly believe health is a way of life more than just the result of a punctual treatment.
This philosophy is what took me to I establish VivaBody Health Studio five years ago when I relocated to Ireland. VivaBody is my small contribution to improve people's health. I sought to create a place where patients could not only receive treatments but also learn how to achieve their best selves by making positive changes in their daily routines, which can contribute to disease prevention and improved quality of life.
In conclusion, I feel incredibly fortunate to work in a field that I am deeply passionate about. Osteopathy and Physiotherapy are at the very heart of my life's work, and every time a patient walks through my door, I'm given the chance to enhance their well-being. Is there anything more rewarding than that? 🙂
