Francisco says:
"Some people may be surprised when they hear I studied law. Law is something I left behind to follow my passion of sports and health. Having practised sports all my life, playing football on a semi-professional level and doing Karate, I understand the importance of overall wellbeing for the body and mind in order to perform at a high level, be it physically or mentally. I hold qualifications in physical and neuromuscular therapy which is my main expertise and have, throughout the years, acquired many other qualifications due to personal and professional interest in broadening my knowledge."
