I found Urban health two years ago and it was then I began to heal on every level from past injuries which were affecting my every day life. The sensitive approach along with pure knowledge of their fields using a combination of therapies I have put my complete trust in their professionalism. In my search for physical wellbeing I have never come across such accurate diagnosis which saves so much time and aggravation.
I highly recommend Urban Health
Zowel Rosalia als Gustavo zijn buitengewoon profesioneel. Als ik geen sport letsel mankeer, maak ik toch maandelijks een afspraak om eventuele blessures te voorkomen en zeker goed voor sress bestrijding. Ook aan te bevelen is een keer lekker laten verwennen met een gezichts en hoofd massage, echt fantastisch! Deze vind ik persoonlijk aan te bevelen met Rosalia, zij is overigens ook gespecialiseerd in acupunctuur! Gustavo is zich aan het specializeren in osteopathie, en dat is natuurlijk heel handig. Zeker hoe hij mijn elleboog ontsteking heeft weten aan te pakken, en niet te vergeten dat Rosalia acupunctuur heeft toegepast om de pijn en de inflamatie te minderen.
Ich habe ständig Rückenprobleme und bin somit oft in Behandlung und die perfekte Betreuung finde ich bei Urban Health.
Die perfekten Handgriffe, Ratschläge und Übungen machen mich wieder schmerzfrei. Die Athmosphäre ist immer angenehm und wohltuend.
Einfach nur weiterzuempfehlen!
Integridad y bienestar en todos los sentidos

С искренним уважением,
Quand on est dans la douleur, quand notre corps montre une résistance, que recherche t'on sinon une oreille qui sache nous écouter, comprendre notre corps, se sentir "pris en main" en toute confiance.
"Urban Heath" le lieu d'une rencontre, celle de Rosalia et Gustavo, qui ont sû avec douceur, et à travers une grande connaissance de leur pratique Physiotherapie & Accuponcture redonner à mon coude fracturé, sa mobilité et à une autre occasion redonner toute souplesse à un cou devenu rigide au niveau des cervicales.

The perfect health discipline for you! As you recover flexibility, your muscles relax, your circulation improve, you will feel much more balanced. We will help you in such a way that you will feel physically fit again. You will not only recover from injuries, we will teach you how to prevent them.
This is a combination of techniques that will relax your muscles, help you recover mobility and improve your circulation. As there is a variety of methods and schools, we will avail ourselves of the one that better suits you, taking your health and well-being into account at all times. Appropriate for all ages.
The perfect discipline to either recover from or prevent injuries. Therapeutic Pilates is beneficial irrespective of your age or sex. It is meant for athletes, working people, dancers, mothers and expectant mothers. Suitable for everybody! A low impact and yet challenging exercise designed to improve your balance and well-being. Your muscles will be toned and stretched. You will feel strong and flexible! Individual classes or groups.
Pilates is a great way of remaining connected with the changes that are going to take place and those that have already taken place in your body, both during pregnancy and after childbearing. Our goal is to reinforce your “natural girdle”, paying special attention to the muscles that shape the core, from the perineal muscles up to the deep transverse muscle of the abdomen so that your lumbar area does not suffer. The only thing you will then have to do is enjoying your baby as we will take care of you!
There are many asymmetric sports that may give rise to muscular imbalance that may lead to injuries. Thanks to Therapeutic Pilates, you will work out in order to have a good base as well as an aligned and symmetrical body, which will allow you to get in better physical shape, avoid injuries and keep on enjoying your favorite sport. This is the perfect exercise for a more efficient training time.
Lawyers, architects, doctors, dentists, nurses, restaurant staff are examples of stressful jobs, some of them being quite physical. If those professionals do not properly work out, their job will end up taking its toll on their body. Therapeutic Pilates is the perfect break that also allows you to improve your posture, whether you are at work or not.
Therapeutic Pilates is the best tool of kinesitherapy aka movement therapy. We will work on the coordination, muscular tone, joint range and propioceptive system (the capacity of the body to give “a memory“ to muscles, joints and ligaments when performing a movement).
These stages of growth of a child are very important. Bad daily habits, such as carrying a heavy backpack with only one strap or with two ill-adjusted straps, sitting down without lumbar support or on a leg, the absence of exercise, etc… can cause significant injuries. Not only will we teach them Pilates but we will also introduce them to healthy habits and help them understand how their body works.
You will discover how your body and mind work much better when they have no limitations. Through diagnostic skills and manual treatments, we will ensure that every bodily structure is free to carry out its function, as we deal with your body in its globality. This will make it easier for your body to develop its full potential and find its balance again, so that you may again feel fine.
Designed to treat the muscle and fascia (the connective tissue that wraps around muscles, bones, joints, guts, nervous and vascular structures). We apply painless stretchings, sustained pressures and other extremely gentle techniques that allow your body to recover its mobility and reduce pain.
We will explain the measures adopted by the French Health Ministry* (France being a leading country in Europe for this kind of treatment) for the prevention of bronquiolitis. We will teach you the natural ways and means to help boost the defenses of your baby. We will practise different methods of nose wash to ensure that this technique becomes more effective and less uncomfortable for your child.
IMPROVE YOUR SWING AND A LOT MORE!
We will examine your posture and your body from the point of view of osteopathy, as much when you are moving as when you are not. The technique will be analysed by Philippe Allain, professional coach of the European Golf Tour, by using state-of-the-art technology and relying on the most vangardist knowledge. The movement will be analysed by our osteopath, Gustavo González, who will diagnose and solve any limitation or problem in your posture or movements.
Why is it necessary to have a Chartered Physical Therapist?
This is a guarantee that this professional is actually a Physical Therapist, who had proper training to deal with your health. Such a professional is backed by an association of other chartered professionals and holds a third party liability insurance. How much do you value your health?
How is the first appointment with the Physical Therapist like?
During the first appointment, you will be asked to fill out a form. The Physical Therapist will issue a diagnostic assessment for the purpose of giving you the best possible treatment.
Why is it important to arrive on time for each appointment?
Our treatments are personalised. It is therefore essential for you to arrive on time in order to enable us to work during the time allocated to you and according to our protocol. We suggest you arrive 5 or 10 minutes earlier..
Can I cancel my appointment?
If you find yourself unable to attend an appointment, you may cancel or postpone it but you have to call us 24 hours before.
Obligations that come with prepaid services at a reduced rate:
The whole amount of such prepaid services at a reduced rate will have to be paid on your first appointment. You must inform us about the cancellation of any appointment 24 hours before. If you do not do so, we will consider that this appointment was kept and the treatment provided.
How will I feel after a physical therapy treatment?
As each person is different and so is each metabolism, a variety of reactions may take place. Although we will inform you about any possible reactions when we give you a treatment, you should not hesitate to contact us after the treatment for any query you may have.
Why is breathing so important in Pilates?
We will teach you how to control your abdominal and thoracic breathing. This will help with the contraction of the deep transverse muscle and the abdominal oblique muscles. Thanks to proper breathing, a contraction of the pelvic floor and multifidus muscle will take place that will contribute to the stability of the pelvis and lumbar region. This will improve the quality of the exercise and enable all your organs to get more oxygen.
If I have a hernia, can I do Pilates?
After assessing your case, we will recommend the best solution for you. Therapeutic Pilates guided by your physical therapist is one of the most suitable tool of rehabilitation for treating muscle skeletal disorders.
What should I bring to my Pilates class?
Just bring comfortable sports clothes.
