Curriculum Vitae

JONATHAN C. AHLADAS, MSPT

PHYSIOTHERAPIST, LICENSE NO. 5696 (MADRID)

 

INTRODUCTION

The roots of my clinical practice are based in Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT), an innovative method developed in the U.S. that fuses the latest in scientific research on fascia with the principles and practice osteopathic manual therapy and bioenergetics. I have more than 20 years of clinical experience between the US and Spain, having been a direct disciple of the creator of IMT, Dr. Sharon Weiselfish Giammatteo. I work in private practice (since 2003) in Madrid, and have pioneered the field of IMT in various European countries, where I teach IMT professional training courses in Spain, Portugal and Denmark.
