Freddy Ruiz

Freddy moved to San Diego in 2008 to attend San Diego State University where he majored in Kinesiology. During that time, he fell in love with the art of human movement and was driven to find a profession that would allow him to utilize his passion to make a positive change in the lives of others. He elected to return back to school to become a physical therapist.

Freddy earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from San Diego State University. While at SDSU, Freddy was involved with Students H.E.A.L (Health & Education Abroad through Leadership), a non-profit that organized a medical mission trip to Sangkhlaburi, Thailand. Freddy was able to collaborate with a full medical staff and provide physical therapy rehabilitation to locals that were suffering from a variety of musculoskeletal ailments. This opportunity in SE Asia influenced his physical therapy style to be more holistic, emphasizing a balance through mind, body, and spirit.

During his final year of physical therapy school, he was mentored by Brian Wilson, founder of Catalyst. It was this opportunity where he developed a friendship with Brian and learned to blend Eastern and Western medicine techniques to facilitate healing. He’s excited to be part of the Catalyst team, where his passions and style of practice mesh with his approach to life and overall well-being.
