Joint pain and arthritis IV therapy- collagen and Vitamin C

Joint pain and arthritis are conditions that a significant majority of the population will face in their lifetime. The pain is usually attributed to inflammation and poor joint health due to malnutrition.

Collagen can help to support the strength and flexibility of the tendons and ligaments and aid recovery after exertion alongside vitamin C; the benefits of collagen might be even further heightened.

Collagen is a protein that plays a significant role in building the body’s structures. When it comes to muscles, ligaments and tendons, collagen provides elasticity, which allows the tissues to stretch.


Full-body deep tissue massage – 90-minutes session

Cuenca Car Share

Wouldn’t you like to go out for a drive? September is just around the corner. While we don’t have the dramatic fall colors that you may remember from up north, we do have some spring blossoms to enjoy.

You do need to plan and to book ahead so that the car you want is available on the dates you want it. And before you go driving off, ask me about any obstacles that might currently be in your way and the best route to take. I stay up to date on road closures and pass that information on to you, my client. I can deliver the car to you anywhere – Cuenca, Quito, Guayaquil, Manta, and other places, too.


Cold? Cuenca, Emilio Of All Trades, H.M. Constructions

Cold weather has arrived and they say the next couple of days could be even colder. Is your home warm? Have you found that your windows are really drafty? Curtains can help and we can install the hardware for you to hang them on. Or we can winterize your windows with weather strip. It can make a huge difference!

Franklin (my brother) and I are experienced handymen, ready to help with your designs and projects. Maybe they are things you’ve been putting off, or something that just popped up in your mind. It doesn’t matter. Just explain what you need and we’ll find a way to design it to your satisfaction. We have helped many expats and Ecuadorians repair their homes, install windows, build patios, etc. Many have their own designs for us to build.


Emilio Morocho – Driver/facilitator/commentator

This is a great time to travel. You may wish to see the countryside, a nearby town or village, get some new shoes made, buy some orchids or roses, or just get out of Cuenca for a few hours or a day.

I, Emilio Morocho, have spent much of my life here in Cuenca assisting people who want to do just that – get out of town. I fine-tuned my driving skills while living in the US and drive safely and courteously. What’s more, as a native Ecuadorian, I am very proud of my country and offer commentary as we travel – if you wish to talk.

I am offering a full set of classes at no charge in the hopes that those of you who may have been reluctant to come because of the cost will take this opportunity to come and learn.
