Hugo graduated from Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in 2018. He completed 3000 hours of classroom curriculum, which includes over 550 hours of clinical practice. His motivation to become an RMT was inspired by his wife who had been in multiple car accidents and was experiencing pain and discomfort daily. Hugo was eager to help her recover and to provide pain relief for her without the use of medication. He strongly believes that the treatment of soft tissues through massage therapy can help decrease musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction without pain medication, which often comes with a host of side-effects to the body.
Through massage therapy, Hugo is also able to carry out his passion of promoting good health and helping others. Along with massage treatments, he also encourages his patients to actively participate in their own recovery through therapeutic exercises, hydrotherapy, stretches, and strengthening exercises.
Hugo has knowledge in a variety of modalities including:
- Swedish Massage
- Pregnancy (pre/post-natal)
- Sports Massage
- Deep Tissue
- Myofascial Techniques
- Joint Mobilizations
