Blockages, primarily of the spine, but also other joints, are treated here. The goal is to unblock certain joints, relax the muscles, and loosen adhesions.
The basis of this method is the knowledge that even minor misalignments of the vertebrae and joints can lead to pain, especially muscular, and an altered conductivity of nerve tracts. Chronic headaches especially are often the result of blockages in the cervical spine.

A check up includes a comprehensive blood test to determine blood count, liver, kidney, and cholesterol values, as well as other parameters tailored to your needs.
Furthermore, an electrocardiogram may be administered to determine your heart activity, as well as an exercise ECG, X-Ray of the heart and lungs, or a pulmonary function test.
At the core of the check-up, however, lies the comprehensive examination of your body.
Accidents resulting in cuts, tears, or bruises, as well as pathological changes in the skin, such as abscesses, problems with nail circulation, warts, fibromas, atheromas, and liver spots, sometimes require surgery. Most often, a short visit at our clinic is all that is necessary.
We would love to consult you on which therapies are best suited to your needs.
