My name is Franki Rocher, and I currently live in La Paz (Bolivia) where I work as an Osteopath D.O.
Because I think that the human being has all the resources within to live in Health and Happiness.
Working with my hands, I try to be the fulcrum, who allows resources within patients to express health.
And why Osteopathy?
Because principles work in harmony with Nature and the Universe, the same govern the human being. We are Nature and its principles live within us. If we respect them we live happy and find our Health.
My life as a therapist began in 1994 while studying in the University in Castellon (UJI) (https://www.uji.es/estudis/oferta/base/graus/actual/cafe/) for Teacher of Physics Education since 1993 to 1996 when I did my first approach to Anatomy and Physiology.
Simultaneously, in 1994 did my first approach as a therapist while studying for Massage and Manual Therapist in the School MANS from Castellon. Both did my first approach in the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Specially in the “Anatomía para el Movimiento” books I and II from Blandine Calais.. Anatomic and Physiological Bases of Movement.
Following years I worked as a private massage and manual therapist and work for two years in Football Club in Gandia (Valencia). Also, that time I studied for manual bandages with the physiotherapist from F.C Barcelona, Toni Bové.
Finally in 1999, I did my first contact to Osteopathy but was firstly required to study Physiotherapy in Rovira and Virgili University in Reus to adjust to requirements for a Level II in Bologna Treated.
While studying physiotherapy I go deep in the knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology, but also in medical studies as pathology, neurology, respiratory, pharmacology, surgery….etc. you can check all them here. https://www.urv.cat/ca/estudis/graus/oferta/plans/ciencies-salut/fisioterapia-grau/. and did clinica practices in several clinics to approach several patients, including those with neurological problems.
Then, in 2002 I began my studies of Osteopathy in ECO for 6 years (https://escuelaosteopatiaeco.com/), following the requirements for Bologna Treated, type II. Since then, my life has been dedicated to Osteopathy, always in private practice, but specially for Children Osteopathy since I read Sutherland and Viola Frymann books.
My postgraduate Studies
Actually, working as Osteopath D.O since 2008, in private practice since I graduated in ECO after 6 years of post graduate and partial time studies. (https://escuelaosteopatiaeco.com/)
My great influence has been what I learned with Pierre Tricot D.O with whom I learned that the Structure of the Body has a Consciousness and is alive, and we can work to free it and thus express health. Being the Fulcrum that the patient needs for health to express itself.
Another important part of my training as an osteopath has been the translation of the books by ANDREW TAYLOR STILL and W.G Sutherland into Spanish. From then on I realised the essentials of Osteopathy and that it cannot be practiced without knowing life and work of its founder, Andrew Taylor Still, and for this reason I decided to translate his books. In addition, the father of Cranial Osteopathy has been another important part of my work as an osteopath.
My Translations to Spanish
• "Osteopathy for the Child and the Family".
• "Tissue Consciousness”.
All them available here.
Since 2002, mi private practice as Osteopath D.O has been in many places in Spain; Gandia, Valencia, Ibiza, Javea, Denia…etc. but also in Buenos Aires, Bolivia, Peru..etc.
Osteopathy with Children shows me a medicine for the future.
When digging on I find lots of bent twigs because of a difficult birth and pregnancy.
Consciousness tissue Osteopathy helps them a lot.
In both, I was part of a therapeutic team with physiotherapist, speech therapist, psychologists and medical doctors.
