For whom
is it for

Osteopathy is a holistic manual diagnosis and therapy concept that addresses the individual needs of patients. The osteopathic approach combines the examination and treatment of muscles, joints, fascia as well as organs and skull bones.

 

Osteopathy not only treats symptoms, but tries to find and treat the causes of complaints using sound knowledge of anatomy and physiology in combination with clinical examination. In addition, the body's own self-healing powers are supported.

The treatment is based on a variety of manual treatment methods, which are carried out by feeling, loosening, mobilizing and stretching. In addition, I would be happy to discuss with you how you can actively participate in the healing and recovery process. Suggestions for everyday life or targeted exercises often prove to be important tools that help you to become active yourself.  

 

The treatment time is 45-60 minutes.

Please note that appointments must be canceled up to 24 hours in advance, otherwise I will charge a cancellation fee of EUR 50 .

 

I ask for your understanding because I reserve my time for you.

HEALTH INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENT

The treatment costs are partially reimbursed by many statutory and private health insurance companies. Billing is based on the scale of fees for non-medical practitioners (GebüH).

FAQ

How many treatments are needed? 

Osteopathic treatment is tailored to the individual needs of the patient. The number of treatments may vary from patient to patient and may vary depending on factors such as age, exercise, stress level and dietary habits. Planning the number of treatments.  

 

Based on my experience, acute complaints that have only recently existed require around 1-3 treatments at intervals of 1-2 weeks.  Complaints that last longer than 6 months require approx. 3-6 treatments at longer intervals.

There is no guarantee for the success of the treatment according to the UWG and HWG.

How do I best prepare for the session, what do I wear? 
You are welcome to bring existing findings, such as MRI, CT and/or X-ray images, laboratory findings or doctor's letters. For the sake of the environment, you are welcome to bring your own large towel. Please come in loose and light clothing. Many patients are treated in loose sportswear, swimming trunks or underwear. A clear view of the spine is important for the diagnosis. The most important thing to me is that you feel comfortable in your clothes.

Which languages are offered?
The treatment can be in German and English.
