Over the last six years, Luca has focused his training to develop skills in the assessment and treatment of soft tissue and repetitive stress injuries with myofascial techniques. Myofascial techniques treat the muscles and connective tissue of the body to rehabilitate these areas by promoting their mobility, flexibility, and health. These techniques help the client in their physical activity and performance, and returning to normal activities.
Luca completed RMT training at British Columbia’s premier school for massage therapy training, Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. As part of his clinical training at VCMT, Luca obtained experience providing massage therapy treatment in a diverse range of hospitals and care facilities in the lower mainland.
Luca performs myofascial trigger point release, fascial manipulation, joint mobilizations, Swedish massage, active stretching and remedial exercises. He is a member and graduate of the Fascial Manipulation Association (Associazione Manipolazione Fasciale), based in Italy, and has been focusing on fascia release techniques geared towards releasing intermuscular and intramuscular nerve restriction.
Luca believes wellness activities such as yoga, pilates, tai chi, cycling, aquafit, and swimming can be beneficial for improving the body’s strength, balance, mobility, and stability. He has practiced these forms of activity and also enjoys running, cycling, free weights, circuit training, soccer and badminton, believing that staying active provides for a higher quality of life and better recovery from injury.
