Treatment priorities

Osteopathy

The most important principle in the Osteopathy is: "Life is a movement". An Osteopath checks the whole body for movement restrictions which could be responsible for pain.

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a special hand grip technique that resolves movement disorders in the limb joints or spine.

Physiotherapy

Basically, the physiotherapy pursues the goal, the movement and functioning of the body to maintain, improve or restore.

Manual Lymphatic

Manual lymphatic drainage is a special treatment technique that pursues the goal of removing tissue fluid.

Massage and Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is an alternative medicine therapy that claims to treat skeletal muscle immobility and pain.

Treatment for CMD

Typical symptoms of CMD (craniomandibular dysfunction) are complaints of the masticatory muscles (myofascial pain), directly on the temporomandibular joint (for example, disk displacement) or as the cause and consequence of stress.

Therapy of headache and vertigo

Dizziness (vertigo) and headaches are a constant annoying companion for many people – others suffer from time to time.
