»I AM my body.« – Eckhard Tolle



Life story = body story

Stories: told with the body, which map the events of your life and seek to be understood. Experiencing pain in the body is a signal, alarming you that the body is in a state of imbalance, that your defences are down, that elements of your individual life story are casting shadows.

Clarity and understanding are what bodies need.
Osteopathic guidance and treatments help you to understand your body, with all its internal and external scars and to better read and interpret your body´s signals.
And beyond that, to treat Body – Spirit – Soul – Shadows as an indivisible unit.

For everyone who wants more.
Simple and direct.
Complex and discerning.
Consequent and exact.
Honest and real.

On the path to a new attitude towards life, rich with fulfilment and well-being that can be experienced both IN and WITH your own body.

„I do not have a body, I AM my body.“ – Eckhard Tolle.

life story/
body story


It is of vital importance for me to understand the unique and special life story of everyone who comes to me for osteopathic guidance. To see, to recognize and to feel how the body tells each life story. Individually. Different every time.

Operations, accidents, falls, scars, traumatic experiences – simply, life – stress changes a body and carves patterns of tension over time. To recognize these and treat them is what makes healing possible.

Healing releases old tensions and allows new motions the freedom to form.

Freedom allows the body to find its inner balance.

Balance brings lightness.

Lightness yields well-being and relaxes the body.

The goal of my treatments is to harmonize your life story and body story, for a more fully enjoyable life story in the future.

Osteopathy is a holistic treatment concept, which perceives and connects all the different layers of the body. The body is a unit and is equipped with mechanisms of self-regulation, which allows it to continuously react and adapt to inner and outer changes. To live in health, it is important that all layers are connected and free to interact with one another.

Using the hands, an osteopath can feel and discover dynamics and imbalances in the most diverse layers of the body, whether structures (bones), soft tissues (muscles, tissues, fascia …), organs or craniosacral rhythms. After such an assessment, treatment begins and involves specific techniques for loosening blockages, harmonizing the body and improving interaction between all levels.

cranial osteopathy

The craniosacral rhythm is characterized by a gentle, wave-like motion, similar to breathing, which is assumed to be caused by the flow of cranial fluid. Through this rhythm, new insights can be gained about the inner power and vitality of the body. With the help of gentle techniques in the area around the skull and the entire body, tensions and imbalances can be discovered and restored to balance. Harmony and vitality are enhanced.  


In general, physical therapy combines manual techniques, active strengthening exercises and body awareness training. Some physical therapies focus on treatment of the jaw, others on gynecology. Through manual techniques, cranial osteopathy and active exercises, tensions and blockages in the jaw can be loosened and freedom of movement can be restored in the abdominal and pelvic region.  

body awareness training

The purpose of this training is to feel and understand our own bodies more deeply, to recognize the connections and interactions and to learn how to discover and release tensions ourselves in the future.

This referral must be approved by the head physician of your health insurance provider. You may send it by fax or submit it for approval in person.

Osteopathic treatments are not covered by Austrian social insurance. Certain private insurance companies do cover the cost of treatments.
