some words about me

I have been working with the human body for more than thirty years  and I have chosen a holistic approach (craniosacral osteopathy, integrative osteopathy and other natural techniques) because at any moment it is the person who is at the centre of my attention. I, together with my patient, look for the cause of the disease/dysfunction to get to the root of the problem. I take time to listen and analyse the history of the complaint to create a therapy plan that will encompass all levels of the human being (body, mind and soul). I find it very helpful to be able to choose from different healing methods in order to create an individual treatment plan that is the best choice for this specific person at this point in time.
