I am currently working as an associate professor. Teaching of Complementary Therapies in the Faculty of Nursing. I have taught this specialty for several years at UR University, Vic, Manresa and San Joan de Deu. From 2000 to 2005, I taught Reflexology at the Finlay Institute (Cuba), the University of Villas (Santa Clara-Cuba) and the Polyclinic Ciro Redondo de Artemisa (Cuba). As well as monographs of Reflexology in the Universities of Lleida and Valencia. Since 2006, I am the director of my own center for Integrative Therapies in the city of Tarragona. The interests of my research, mainly cover three interrelated fields. Research on Complementary and Integrative Therapies, mainly Reflexology and its influence on the quality of life. The training of students in this field in higher education and the training of teaching staff. For my doctorate I have analyzed the effects of reflexology on the quality of life of nursing students, using quantitative and qualitative methods. I have also investigated the effects of Reflexology during its application in different health problems, publishing some articles and presented papers in congresses and conferences.
