Luca trained as a physiotherapist in Italy and graduated in 2011, where he went on to work across hospitals, residential homes and private clinics in Central and Northern Italy.
Luca has a wide variety of experience in sports massage, musculo-skeletal, orthopaedic and neurological practices. He also spent one year working for a local football team as a physiotherapist, gaining on-pitch experience.
He is an avid tennis fan and player, having played with his family from a young age. He also played football for 10 years and basketball during his time at university. Due to his passion for sports, his physiotherapy practice is also focused on the rehabilitation of athletes, an area that he is exploring further in his career.
Luca moved from his home town of Varese in Northern Italy in 2013 to start a life in London, where he now calls home.
Luca joined our specialist Back Pain Clinic here at Brixton Therapy Centre in 2016. We are really pleased to have Luca working here, extending the breadth of expertise and experience that we can offer our clients.
"My goal as a physiotherapist is to locate and evaluate the primary problem areas to relieve and treat the pain and prevent future damage. My technique includes focused massage and tissue manipulation to help oxygenate blood flow to improve overall health and posture and relieve stress. I also provide relaxation massage by using a range of breathing techniques, as well as lymphatic drainage massage for those with reduced lymph flow. My physiotherapy practice also includes rehabilitation programmes, for cases such as joint or muscular pain or broken limbs, to prevent longer term injury or discomfort. This can be achieved with routine exercises and mobilisation specifically selected for the patients' individual needs. My physiotherapy advice and treatment differs from patient to patient, and begins with an initial consultation where I will prescribe a clear step-by-step therapy plan of how to relieve and fix the issues at hand."
