André is a chartered physiotherapist and the Director of ALO Physiotherapy Clinic on Harley Street. He specializes in treatment for back, neck and knee pain.

He also has a keen interest in sports and has treated many professional sportsmen and women.
André is originally from Brazil where he obtained his first degree in Sport Science. His drive for achievement then led him to secure an honours degree in Physiotherapy at the University Of East London (UEL) in 1998. He has worked at many of the leading hospitals in London, including the Royal London Hospital and Northwick Park where he has obtained extensive clinical experience in the areas of orthopaedics, elderly care, sports injuries and post-surgical care.
One of André's passions is furthering advancements within physiotherapy and as such he founded Little Nudge (software that reminds people when to take breaks, performing quick and simple exercises) which has been implemented at a large medical insurance company. He is also beoming increasing involved with the physiotherapy regulatory bodies and was the first physiotherapist to bring Human Tecar Therapy technology to the UK.
