Paul Goudriaan, owner, senior Physiotherapist

Paul finished his four year Bachelor of Science degree in 1996 in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
After several locum jobs, he worked in a private practice for Sports Physiotherapy for five years, before leaving for the Caribbean in 2003.
On Aruba, Dutch Antilles, he worked in the only hospital on the island. As a member of the Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation team of 5 physiotherapists, 2 occupational therapists, 2 social workers, and a Physiatrist, he worked on the Orthopedic, Neurologic, Pediatric wards, and on the ICU and CCU.
Whilst working in the hospital for 4 years, Paul was fortunate to be able to do many courses, organised by the Rehabilitation department, such as Neurological Rehabilitation, Prosthetics, Shoulder Rehabilitation, Pediatric Physiotherapy for 0-2 year olds, and many more.
After just one year of owning his own clinic on the neighboring island of Bonaire, due to family circumstances, Paul moved to Spain. In Nerja, Andalucia, Paul worked in a private practice for Physiotherapy for nearly 2 years.
Forced by the economical crisis to leave Spain, it was back to the Netherlands, and a job as a physiotherapist on the orthopedic ward in the renowned hospital, St. Maartenskliniek.
But the better weather and different life style of Spain made for another move quickly. From 2011 to 2015 Paul worked in Moraira, Costa Blanca in a clinic for rehabilitation and physiotherapy.
Then, since it was decided he was definitely staying this time, Paul bought the clinic on the Plaza in Javea, Centro Terapéutico Javea.
In the same year he started the 4 year Master study of Osteopathy, to broaden his knowledge and keep developing as a therapist.
At the moment of writing, Paul is close to finishing his studies,  with just a thesis to be done.
