My inspiration….

Combination of different healing and preventive methods or concepts centered on the person as a whole, not only on the body (physiology, biochemistry). Also on the energy, mental and spiritual processes.

„I really like approaches that teach a person to help (SAM SOBE) and come to where and why the problem is. While I’m still learning fine manual therapy (visceral, neural, craniosacral, energetic), I vehemently fancy „homework“. Both in terms of motion therapy and prevention, as well as self-therapy and prevention in the field of soul and spirit (relaxation-active action and meditation methods). Traditional Chinese medicine also counts on the patient’s physically active approach (qi gong, tai ji), which I try to learn and pass.“
