Ana Velázquez Colominas

Ana treats and trains artists in the least possible time through the Ana Velázquez method for the improvement of technical quality and the injury prevention.

She teaches this method of analysis and assessment in her physiotherapeutical centre to other physiotherapists so that more and more artists will have the opportunity of benefit from this method of quick integration of various interpretation techniques which the artists may already be familiar with.

Born in Barcelona, she graduated in Physiotherapy (Universidad Ramón Llull). She specialised in muscoloskeletical risk prevention (Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña), and in Medicine of the Performing Arts (Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona). She holds a Master in Posturology (UB).

With her concern to make PERFORMING ARTS PHYSIOTHERAPY  known to all physiotherapists and artists in Spain, she has contacted the Physotherapy schools in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Andalucía, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands with the objective of spreading this specialisation to other physiotherapists who are attracted to the Scenic world. 

She has decided to employ part of her time in participating in diffusion campaigns for children and adults, as well as adverts, articles in physiotherapy magazines and even educative programmes. She has created the COURSE ON PERFORMING ARTS PHYSIOTHERAPY, which is taught in her centre in Barcelona (CPAE) and in some physiotherapy colleges together with other teachers.

She also gives lectures and free workshops in centres of artistic training and music, theatre and dance associations with the aim of making the artists aware of the existance of this physiotherapeutical specialisation.

This bidirectional task is greatly marked by her passion for performing and singing. She has created an educative programme to introduce POSTURLOGY and PHYSIOTHERAPY in educative artistic centres.
