  • Veterinary Medicine in Vienna until 2000

  • Osteopathy and physiotherapy (nach Welter Böller) for horses and dogs
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine, basic education, based on the five elements 

My Philosophy:

To carry weight on the back is a very difficult and sportive action. Therefore we have to treat horses like sportsmen.

A basic part of the training should be stretching the muscles in order to avoid a loss in movement and to keep the horse physically and mentally healthy. 

My treatment is not only osteopathic. 

I have combined and modified several stretching exercises into a basic program.

My osteopathic treatment works in combination with this basic stretching program, myofascial release therapy, massage and physiotherapy. I teach this treatment to my clients so they can do it by themselves. 

For me it is important that the horses get stretched 3-4 times a week to stabilize the symmetry and freedom of movement I achieve in my treatment.

Only a body, which is able to move freely and as symmetric as possible, is able peovide physical and mental health.
