Philosophy & offer

Everyone is an individual and has their own story. Approaches to a psychological as well as physical ailment can be correspondingly diverse. Our practise combines the different perspectives from East and West and addresses both body and mind with our therapy methods. We offer you holistic treatment individually and as a team, including stress-related illnesses, burnout, depression, sleep problems, psychosomatic diseases, pain disorders, fears, and emotion regulation difficulties.

Emotional processes are always expressed in physical reactions and are subject to constant change. If one can perceive the emotion immediately and trust it, it serves to satisfy the basic human needs for attachment, control, self-esteem and joy. These basic needs are anchored in our genetic code and have a direct influence on our well-being. However, the demands of our environment can lead to pathological stress and emotion processing patterns that promote mental and somatic diseases and perpetuate them. As a result, our basic needs are neglected, which affects our well-being.

By clarifying the development of the disease and working through biographical events within the framework of therapy, the perception of pathological processing patterns is sharpened, and these are made accessible for problem-solving. In Chinese medicine, it is assumed that emotions can affect the body and, conversely, that bodily disharmonies influence the psyche. Therefore, with this method, psychosomatic illnesses can be treated through the body, which activates the self-healing powers. Every newly emerging emotion and every physical symptom can become a valuable guide. Thanks to our interdisciplinary range of psychotherapy and body therapies such as acupuncture, Shiatsu and craniosacral touch therapy, we are at your side to correctly interpret the various guides.

Cognitive behavioral therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy is one of the most widely used and evidence-based forms of treatment. As the name suggests, it's about changing your thoughts and behaviours. The therapist works with the client to question dysfunctional thinking and behaviour patterns and helps the client to establish new, more helpful view and behaviour patterns. In addition to behavioural therapy, in our practice, we work with an integrative approach. We individually incorporate building blocks from other therapy schools that have proven scientifically helpful in our treatment. Above all, it is essential to understand behavioural patterns often experienced in a biographical context and show up in different areas of the patient's life.

Traditional Chinese medicine

The use of fine acupuncture needles is a millennia-old Chinese healing method. The acupuncturist receives a comprehensive picture of his patient based on a personal conversation, pulse and tongue diagnosis and puts together a tailor-made therapy. The treatment is carried out by inserting thin needles to stimulate specific acupuncture points. These regulate the life energy Qi and activate the self-healing powers - health and well-being are promoted naturally. Acupuncture is known for its effectiveness in various diseases but is also used to support conventional medical therapies or as a preventive method for maintaining health.

Craniosacral biodynamics

Craniosacral biodynamics developed from osteopathy. Pioneers in this field have learned that silence allows the body to regain its relationship with health.

Self-healing powers are also activated, and human resources are strengthened.

The session begins with an empathetic conversation followed by lying down on the massage table in comfortable clothing. The mindful touch is gentle and calm and can have a regenerating and uplifting effect. It is a profoundly relaxing method that also makes it possible to strengthen the self-regulating capacity.

Somatic Experiencing ®

When processing overwhelming experiences, Somatic Experiencing makes it possible to cautiously approach such experiences and work through them successfully in a far-reaching process.

In SE TM work, attention is directed to both the physical perceptions and the mental and emotional experiences of the traumatizing experience. This leads to a gentle, slow discharge of the held energy and a return to natural self-regulation connected with more vitality, well-being and resilience.

In the SE TM work, attention is drawn not to the memory of the traumatizing event but to how this experience shows itself in a person in the here and now.

Safe & Sound Protocol ®

Dr Stephen Porges developed Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP). It is a five-day auditory intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while improving social engagement and resilience. Based on the polyvagal theory, Porges opens the door to improved communication and more successful therapy by calming down the physiological and emotional state.

The SSP is a research-based therapy that can show results in just five days in the following areas:

Social and emotional difficulties

Hearing sensitivities

Challenges related to anxiety and trauma

inattention

Stressors Affecting Social Engagement
