ELENA PULIDO MASSAGE & Acupuncture

Esmé Michael-Anna Owner, Osteopath

We'll help heal your body.

Physiotherapy & Acupuncture (Spain), Yoga Instructor

Elena came to New Zealand, via France, from Spain after graduating as a Physiotherapist and Acupuncturist at the University of Seville.

Elena believes that our lifestyle has an enormous role in our health and an influence on how fast we recover from injuries and illnesses. At the same time, our body has an incredible capacity to heal itself. Elena see's manual therapy as a way to maintain or help our body when something gets out of balance.

As a Yoga teacher as well, Elena knows the importance of movement to maintain and recover the balance in our bodies. Although we often classify “massages” in categories such as relaxation, remedial, sports and so on… Elena doesn't describe her therapy in that way. The way she works is the result of a compendium of all the techniques that she has learned through studies and years of experience in different areas such as acupuncture, soft tissue, and joint manipulation, pressure points, joint mobilization, hot stones, lymphatic drainage, myofascial release and kinesiotaping.
