Marcelo Castilho, RMT
For Marcelo, Massage Therapy is about considering the whole person according to the biopsychosocial model of care, an approach to treating that is common at BETA Therapeutics. He strives to provide his patients with an experience of feeling safe, calm, accepted and heard, so that people feel connected to their bodies and trust in their treatments.
With a background in research and analysis, Marcelo has always been interested in hearing people’s experiences and understanding the impact of those experiences on quality of life. An enthusiasm for healthcare developed from a strong connection with his own physical experience while living in Brazil. Playing volleyball, soccer, capoeira, riding a BMX, playing the guitar and practicing yoga with his wife have guided Marcelo to where he is today in his practice incorporating therapeutic touch that is firm but delicate, intuitive as well as technical and specific while taking into consideration the patients whole health history.
Bringing all of this together, Marcelo shows patients the importance of nervous system regulation and builds upon each individuals own self-healing capacities promoting and effective and long-lasting treatment.
