Fernanda Santana – Acupuncture and Massage therapy Cork

I’m a Physiotherapist Acupuncturist and I work with holistic therapies and manual therapies for prevention, health promotion and rehabilitation.

I’m interested in everything related to health and well-being, and that’s why, for more than 20 years, I’ve been studying holistic therapies, the human body, its functions, movements, compensations and adaptations.

I started the acupuncture course and the physiotherapy course in the same semester. The concepts were mixed, and often did not add up. While Western medicine divided and separated the individual to understand being and pathology, Eastern medicine connected information, integrated the parts and integrated the individual to everything. It made me so curious; How can two such different forms present results?

In time, the point at which the two medicines (Eastern and Western) met became clearer, and it is at this point that I like to work. I love when they meet, but even when they don’t one knowledge enriches the other. Where one falls short the other one comes strong for the rescue.

Each individual has a unique response to a pathology and/or therapy, and all these years of study and practice allow me to help my patients find the best response to their situation.
