Pedro Escudeiro

After completing 4 of the 5 years of the engineering degree, he graduated in Physiotherapy and then in Osteopathy in the United Kingdom. In this country he began his doctorate and for 3 years he was a lecturer in Osteopathy, Oxford. This course was decisive for the creation of the bases of the therapeutic model characteristic of  Saúde Escudeiro.

Pedro Escudeiro developed this model not so much for defending a paradigm of natural health, but mainly because scientifically, and in his personal experience, this is in most cases the best, and often even the only way of definitively solving the complex health problems of modern times.

Joyful, positive, genuinely welcoming and always focused on the difficulties of the person, constantly seeks the symbiosis between available knowledge and its adaptation to the needs of each person. In recent years he has devoted a large part of his time to the creation of the clinical team and to the enrichment and dissemination of the therapeutic model, in order to be able to help more patients, in a faster and more lasting way.

HISTORY

Saúde Escudeiro was born as a formal Clinical Project in 2010, with a joint objective: to provide the necessary conditions to treat people with the dignity and quality that we – Pedro Escudeiro and Teresa Garcia Escudeiro – wanted and felt they deserved. Our desire was to create the ideal therapeutic environment to give expression to the clinical approach that we ourselves would like to receive.

As professionals, we follow different paths. Teresa Garcia Escudeiro guided her preparation for the area of Women’s Health, Pregnancy / Postpartum and pediatric care. I developed my skills in the area of syndromes and illnesses generated by stress and anxiety, basically, looking for solutions to chronic and persistent problems.

Driven by the desire to reach more people and be even more useful, we decided to set up a team of collaborators, carefully chosen for their clinical and personal profile and after undergoing testing for a long period. This team, prepared in the clinical model developed in Saúde Escudeiro, works well beyond the mere provision of clinical care. We trust and fully feel represented by each of these professionals.

CLINICAL CONCEPT

The Clinical Concept began to develop even in 2001, at the conclusion of our basic academic training, Physiotherapy and Osteopathy, and when we first had direct contact with the osteopathic community in the United Kingdom.

The Clinical Concept that characterizes Saúde Escudeiro is simple and results from our observation and experience. We have learned that human beings have extraordinary abilities of physical and psycho-emotional performance, which have to be activated to enjoy life in full, in terms of health, performance and vitality. When physical or mental health is affected, the key to returning to balance is the day-to-day application of these potentials of human physiology.

Our focus is to help people break free of the limitations that hinder their maximum physical and psycho-emotional performance and become autonomous in the use of their own natural physiological resources. Always in a practical way, applied to day-to-day life; without the need for extraordinary efforts or knowledge; and also motivating.

The whole Saúde Escudeiro’s Concept is focused on helping each person to be their own best version, within what is relevant to oneself and having the lifestyle that fills them and suits them best.
