Meet Ricardo

Ricardo Hidalgo received his Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy from the Pontificia Católica University in Chile in 1989 and has worked as a physical therapist in the United Stated since 1991. He also specializes in orthopedic treatment, manual therapy, and Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) to treat pain.  (See Additional Achivements)

In 2005, Ricardo Hidalgo began studying Biomagnetism in Berlin, Germany. It was a small class, with only fifteen students, thus allowing him the opportunity to learn directly from Dr. Goiz, the father of Biomagnetism.

Ricardo then began traveling with Dr. Goiz, accompanying him in Biomagnetic and Bioenergy seminars in Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Spain, and the United States. At first, Ricardo would teach MPS to the therapists in attendance but soon he began assisting in Dr. Goiz's practice sessions, helping students learn biomagnetism. Ricardo participated in more than 50 seminars with Dr. Goiz. In addition, Ricardo successfully organized Biomagnetic seminars in the United States and in Argentina for Dr. Goiz. 

In 2010, Ricardo received his diploma in Biomagnetism and Bioenergy from the Universidad De Chapingo for his thesis "Experiencia de biomagnetismo en niños en Haiti" (Biomagnetism Work with Childen in Haiti), which he defended in the 9th International Biomagnetic Congress. 

For all of his dedication and work in the field of Biomagnetic Therapy since 2005, Dr. Isaac Goiz Duran nominated Mr. Ricardo Yasu Hidalgo Esperidion as an official instructor of medical Biomagnetism seminars.

Fun Facts!

Ricardo has worked as a volunteer firefighter in Chile since he was 18 years old. He is a member of the Santiago French fire company, La Cuarta, which was founded for the French community in Chile.  Despite moving to the USA in 1991, Ricardo continues to serve as an active volunteer firefighter in Chile. When he's in Chile, he stays at the fire company and has the same responsibilities as everyone else, even covering night shifts.
