Osteopath in Amsterdam

"The passion and curiosity for the anatomy and the biomechanics of the human body were the reasons that motivated me to start this profession. Being fascinated by life and its expression in the micro and macro movement, I specialized in breathing courses, postural rehabilitation, neurokinetic facilitations, kinesio taping and finally I became an Osteopath. In Osteopathy I found basic concepts that I have always followed in my work and in my life: "Life is movement" and considering the body as a unity".

Manual treatment

Osteopathic treatment consists of manipulations and specific techniques effective for the evaluation, prevention, and treatment of disorders that affect not only the neuro-musculoskeletal system, but also cranio-sacral and visceral.
