Esther Martínez is a Physiotherapist and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist from Spain. Her therapeutic approach involves a mixture of classical physical therapy, osteopathy, myofascial release, nutrition, neuromuscular taping and especially Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy. During her 10 years of clinical practice in Spain and France, her understanding of the healing process has evolved. She focuses on listening to the patient’s body in order to promote self-healing.
Some of her main areas of expertise are acute and chronic pain, headaches, sleep disorders, jaw dysfunctions, postsurgical treatment, sports injuries, stress disorders and visceral/organic disorders (digestive disorders, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, etc.), gynaecological problems, allergies, etc.
A very important part of her work is to help babies with conditions such as birth trauma, colic, constipation, diarrhea, excessive crying and irritability, sleeping problems, teething pain, earaches and respiratory problems such as bronchitis and asthma, amongst others. Esther can also help children with conditions such as attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity, trauma associated with orthodontic treatment, etc. Teenagers can also be helped with sports injuries, stress and headaches.
Esther also helps with infertility problems, pregnancy, preparation for birth and postnatal care (taking several factors such as caesarian, multiple birth, breastfeeding problems, postpartum depression, etc. into consideration).
She enjoys practising sports, especially basketball, running, swimming and fitness training. She loves travelling, horses, nature, music and reading. Esther speaks Spanish, English and French.
Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)
Developed by Dr Stephen Porges, the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a five-day auditory intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. Based on Dr. Porges’ Polyvagal Theory, by calming the physiological and emotional state, the door is opened for improved communication and more successful therapy.
Esther Martinez uses SSP to help patients of all ages experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Social and emotional difficulties
- Auditory sensitivities
- Anxiety and trauma related challenges
- Stressors that impact social engagement
Clients and parents are reporting the ability to better interpret not only human speech, but also, importantly, the emotional meaning of language. When interpersonal interactions improve, spontaneous social behaviours and an enhanced ability to learn, self-regulate and engage are often seen, and enable more successful learning.
There have been good results with clients who have learning and language challenges, inattention, hyper arousal, auditory processing difficulties, vestibular and tactile sensory over-responsivity, anxiety and poor state regulation. These features are seen in many conditions such as autism, ADD/ADHD, Down syndrome, mild traumatic brain injury, misophonia, experience with trauma or anxiety and tinnitus.
Cost: A five-day intervention includes 5 sessions of an hour each on consecutive days. Avail of our introductory discount from AED 3,600 to AED 3,250. Discounted rates apply until the end of February 2019.
