In 2014, osteopath and Fasciatherapy Miquel Roig relocated to Punta Cana from his native Mallorca in search of a place to grow personally and professionally and to establish his practice of alternative medicine. “I heard that the Dominican Republic were in need of health professionals, and my area of expertise was unknown and not practiced in the country. So I decided to come to Punta Cana to expand my professional horizons, and it has been fantastic! Without the Dominican Republic and its people, I could never achieve the desired growth and success.” Osteopathy and Fasciatherapy treat the whole body as a functional unit that works together: the nervous system, musculoskeletal system, circulatory system and the visceral system. Fasciatherapy and osteopathic medicine are non-invasive, non-aggressive and do not prescribe medications. They are born of the belief that the human body has the ability to self-regulate and balance, to heal itself faster than traditional medicine, always with an appropriate combination of release of connective tissues, nutrition, exercise and emotional balance improvement.
Traditional medicine is very specific in terms of treating pain rather than treating the cause. Instead, osteopathy and facial reflexology, always pre-diagnosis, are based on finding the source of the problem, which normally isn’t actually the same place as the pain. They then standardize all the functions of body systems through various techniques of tissue normalization using adequate nutrition and exercise, with a recovery time generally less than that of traditional treatments.
Alternative medicine is exactly that: an alternative. Miquel is quick to emphasize the importance of information and the need to obtain a second opinion and choice. “I want people to know that there is not only one solution to a health problem,” he says. “But you should always get a second opinion to find out all your options.”
