Founder & Therapist
Spanish, English and German
My name is Fernando, I was born in Costa Rica.
When I was a child, my family members used to come to me with injuries or muscle tension and asked me to treat them. As teenager I was very sportive and was exposed to different types of injuries. My curiosity to learn about the healing capacities of our human body guided me to study Physiotherapy.
After graduating, I worked for more than eight years in the Hotel industry, first as a massage therapist and later on as a Spa Manager. Working for Four Seasons Hotel Costa Rica, I was selected to travel to Asia and perform a Spa Management training. This trip lasted for almost five years and allowed me to work and live in countries such as Maldives, Malaysia, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Syria, Turkey and Qatar. During those years I was exposed to ancient healing techniques and treatments from which I learned and that are an important part of my work today.
Along the path, I have been trained as Reiki therapist and back in 2008 I received the master training which allows me to teach Reiki. Since then I have trained more than 50 people around the world and coached many others.
I got married to a Swiss girl back in 2012 and after settling down in Zurich I was appointed to be the Spa Manager at Victoria Jungfrau Collection – Palace Hotel in Luzern.
In March 2014 one of my dreams became true and together with my wife we founded our company and opened HEART wellness lounge.
As of June 2017, my Physiotherapy studies are recognised in Switzerland.
