Born and raised in Valencia (Spain), Carles came to the UK in 2002, lived in Cheltenham until 2009 working in hospitality, then moved to the west of London where he worked in the transport industry.
In 2012 Carles injured his Achilles tendon. After a string of system failures and a whole year of recovery the tendon hadn’t healed properly and he had to have surgery. The frustration, pain, and the accompanying lack of mobility motivated him to learn how the human body responds to injury and the processes that can aid recovery.
Carles was drawn to Clinical and Sports Massage. Studied at the Oxford School of Sports Massage where he got a BTEC Level 5 Diploma in February 2015. To deepen his knowledge about movement, Carles trained as a Pilates teacher with Body Control Pilates, qualifying in February 2018. In November 2019 he joined Jing Advanced Massage Training. Jing offers the highest massage qualification in UK (BTEC Level 6), currently studying year 2.
In 2017 he moved to Peebles, where he stablished his massage business first then opening a small studio where he practices massage and teaches Pilates. Carles worked for Peebles Rugby Club for the 2018/2019 season. Currently he also works as a Sports Massage therapist for the University of Edinburgh in Fasic Sports & Exercise Clinic, in The Pleasance.
