    “It gives me great pleasure in recommending Barbara as a Chiropractor. She is a well skilled, professional, knowledgeable, and confident in her work. Our whole family have been using Barbara over the years. My children have treatments for their asthma which gives great relief.  My husband for back problems and I had a chronic whiplash injury. You know that within a few sessions the pain relief is so welcome.  Gradually, I began healing and the odd session now and then just keeps me in check.  I trust Barbara completely and feel safe in her very caring, healing and energising hands. Thank you for being our alternative therapist over the last 6 years!“ (AJ, March 2014)

  • Osteopath - Maria Cristina Parareda

    Recommended by Clare Bodgers

    Maria Cristina Parareda is a fully qualified osteopath in Vilanova

    "We first went to Maria about three months ago because Daniel was born (yanked into the world) with forceps and I feared that he suffered as a result. She is gentle, kind and patient with Daniel although he wriggles and squirms during every session. I like her philosophy; she takes a full history and uses a holistic approach to recovery."

  • Chiropractor - Bret Hertz

    Recommended by Denise Tibbey

    Bret Hertz is a chiropractor from California operating in Vilafranca, Sitges and Vilanova
    (+34) 938921550


    "I have been suffering with back problems for many years and have seen a multitude of medical professionals including Chiropractors to try and find a diagnosis and solution for my problem. Having seen many medical practioners I can honestly say that Bret is one of the best I have seen. He was the first medical professional who took the time to thoroughly investigate my back problem and was able to give me an exact diagnosis of what was happening to my back. Not only was I relieved to finally have a diagnosis, Bret then went on to create an individualised treatment programme for me. He is a very attentive Chiropractor who genuinely listens to his clients and then treats them according to their specific needs. I feel he is passionate about his work and he does is upmost to make a difference. He is a rare find and I would highly recommend him to anyone living in the Sitges/Vilanova and Vilafranca area."
