A person is his/her own best medicine.
This is the premise of classical physiotherapy based on medical diagnosis and prescription.
A person’s ability to move and function can be limited through illness, accident, birth defect, or incorrect movement in daily life.
Through the use of active and passive treatment forms, pain can be eliminated, healthy physiologically correct movement can be re-established, muscular imbalances can be balanced out and motoric development in kids can be furthered.
Clients will be shown how to actively support their own healing process in order to prevent new problems.

Manual therapy is a special form of physiotherapy.
Its focus is to investigate and treat chronic or acute problems in the joint, muscle and nervous system.
In addition to passive joint mobilization on the extremities and spine, neurodynamic techniques, muscle stretching and personal home programs are also used. The uniqueness of this concept lies in the fact that the client treatment is based on our own clinical experience and the newest scientific findings.
Both chronic and acute problems can be treated with manual therapy. This therapy can also be very helpful after an operation or sports injury or even for providing valuable tips for the workplace.
Examples where manual therapy can help:
- Back and spinal disc problems
- Shoulder problems
- Arthritis (knees, hips, shoulder, ankles)
- Nerve irritations (fingers that falls asleep)
- Issues in the hand or foot area (problems with tendons or ligaments)
Training therapy includes building up strength, physical condition, coordination and movement based on a personal training plan.
This therapy focuses on improving the muscular and coordinative weaknesses of the body and involves the use of a person’s own body weight, as well as the use of free weights.
Training therapy is used in almost every case, whether to help prevent further (sports) injury or to support rehabilitation after an operation or injury.
Manual lymphatic drainage
This extremely gentle form of therapy is used in the case of water retention and to decongest swollen body parts, which can occur after a trauma or operation.
Manual lymphatic drainage is a form of massage that is done along the lymphatic pathways.
With gentle circular movements, the lymph flow is stimulated and congestion in the lymph canals is dissolved.
