Are you also stressed, constantly feeling tired, energetically drained, and like you're on a hamster wheel?
Do you know tension and pain?
Sound any of the following familiar?
insomnia, sleeping disorders
irritable bowel syndrome
worries about the future
high blood pressure
the feeling of being beside oneself
the feeling of being at a standstill or stuck
the feeling of not being able to really start your life
......Do you feel like always being on alert?
For example, there could be an imbalance in you that is not recognized. E.g. in the autonomic nervous system, in the hormonal system...
Especially if "nothing" is found, there is no diagnosis organically, imaging procedures do not provide an answer. Because stress and imbalance can not be represented in this way! But have enormous effects! Psychotherapy could also not really help or you feel something is still missing. Even if you have a diagnosis, there can also be an imbalance as a factor. Then please contact. I am happy to help you to come back into balance.
Relaxation and stress reduction can be learned and experienced. How can this be done and what possibilities do you yourself have in your daily life?
We will talk about this in detail and you will receive an individually tailored holistic therapy.
Series of 3-5 appointments in relatively short succession have proven successful, so that the process can be well accompanied and a sustainable change can be achieved.
I offer you my many years of experience as a consultant in conversation with a wide variety of people, life situations and problems. In this way, we can explore together which solution ideas are slumbering in you and want to mature.
Personal stresses such as fears, difficult situations e.g. moving to a foreign country, separation, loss of a loved one, career issues, exam, illness, family difficulties.... among others, can hinder the view of options. One feels like in a hamster wheel , must function...
However, the stressful dynamics can be worked on and changed with various methods.
If the stressors are too overwhelming to talk about, you have come to the right place. My approach or methods are proven also in a non-verbal setting via easy to perform body psychotherapeutic techniques.
I work here with proven techniques and process- and embodiment-oriented methods for a change such as:
- Resolution of lifelong reaction patterns such as anxiety and panic attacks, withdrawal, shock states...
- Release from physical and emotional tensions
- Presence and grounding in the body
- A sense of connection with self and others
- The discovery of new, effective life strategies
- An inner sense of clarity, purpose and destiny
- A spontaneous return to joy, peace and freedom of choice
- Reduction to resolution of chronic pain
- switch off the always felt "state of alarm" in body, mind and soul
- more resilience in stressful situations
- Improve sleep, mood and drive
- Recognize self-sabotage and transform it into self-love
Focal points in the work are:
- Work with belief systems
- Work with inner parts (inner child, symptom-associated parts...)
- Work with Ego States and the inner team
- Regulation Vagus Nerve/Autonomic Nervous System
- Define life goals and remove blockages that prevent achievement
- Processing and handling stressful situations
- Work with emotional entanglements
- Changing intergenerational patterns and loyalties
- Self-worth and self-love training
- Hormonal balance through emotional regulation
During the gentle and painless scar treatment (after Sharon Wheeler), the scarred tissue is gently given impulses that stimulate healing and regeneration. Integration into the fascia system and neuronal connection becomes possible and often a feeling of "being whole again", belonging to ones body, sets in very quickly. Possible complaints such as itching, pinching, pulling, tightness, "as if stapled", numbness, insensitivity and a feeling of strangeness can be reduced relatively quickly, according to experience. Depending on scar size, location and history of the scar, several sessions may be necessary.
Working with scars is like speaking a different language in the world of connective tissue. Scar tissue is a very dense fascia with unique properties. Scar tissue work uses a casual, light touch and deeply relaxing most of the times. The amount of change in one intervention is extensive. The cosmetic effect is delightful and the functional changes can be profound. Scars of any age respond immediately, followed by a short period of rapid healing and continued improvement. The improvements are permanent.
According to its name, craniosacral therapy is dedicated to the cranium and sacrum.
In the treatment, tensions in the body, bone positions in the skull and the entire nervous system (cranial nerves and peripheral nerves) can be influenced. Thus, all body functions can be influenced. I work with techniques from biomechanical/structural as well as biodynamic cranio-sacral osteopathy.
The treatment takes place on the whole body and can gently release tension and immobile fascia. It is also used to regulate the autonomic nervous system and gives the body the opportunity to activate ones self-healing powers.
includes various techniques for the treatment of the musculoskeletal system. These vary from very gentle to chiropractic manipulations (adjustments). This includes proper diagnosis with examination and testing to be able to work specifically.
Our body works very hard every day too stay in balance though it can happen that pain, painful radiation e.g. into the leg or arm, a feeling of "something is stuck there", hands fall asleep and much more appear. Experience has shown that such complaints can be alleviated by osteopathic treatment.
I combine different techniques in one session in order to achieve an optimal success for you, besides chiropractic adjustments for example the gentle tender points according to Dr. Jones as well as treatment of organs. The organs being placed in front of the spine or the so-called organ column can lead to pain, e.g. in the lumbar spine area or neck, via fascial pulls. Fascia treatment is of great importance to me and is included in every treatment.
A holistic treatment includes not only behavioral measures and bodywork for recovery or maintaining health, but also treatment with medicines. In particular, I pay attention to an appropriate structuring of the outer and inner life in order to optimally stimulate the self-healing powers and thus influence the health of body, mind and soul in a positive way.
In any case, a detailed anamnesis interview takes place first. Your cooperation is important and helpful. Often we feel "disconnected" from our body perception in everyday life, have already gotten used to one thing or another ("That's just the way it is...) or ignore complaints - until it is no longer possible and you feel it is time for treatment. In principle, very many physical illnesses and psychological stresses can be amenable to a naturopathic therapy.
I adjust my way of therapeutic treatment of the body individually to your current needs. I offer mainly massages, which are proven in nervous restlessness, emotional upsets, etc...
These act on a physical as well as psychological level. These include i.e. the "SlowStroke" full-body massage, the "Breuss massage" for the back and intervertebral discs, and foot reflexology massage. In addition, I use lymphatic drainage techniques for your well-being.
I work exclusively with organic oils without artificial additives. Due to the pleasant atmosphere in the practice, a really very comfortable massage table, warm blankets if needed, pillows, soft bedding you can let go and relax. Experiencing deep relaxation gives the body the possibility of refueling, regeneration and well-being.
You already have a splint or night guard? Your partner has told you that you grind your teeth at night? Your dentist has noticed that your teeth have grinding marks? You have pain, tension, firmness in your jaw?
No matter which of the points applies, each one is an indication, of increased tension and stress in the body, which manifests itself in the jaw by clenching, grinding. The jaw muscles are only the victim... Pressing has an influence on tension in the whole body. Consequently, relaxation in the jaw area also has an effect on the whole body.
After years of experience, I now work with a combination of methods of physical treatments that have proven successful. For example, the R.E.S.E.T. jaw relaxation, cranio-sacral therapy, osteopathy, trigger point therapy, psychosomatics...
In any case, it is also worth looking at an emotional component of jaw pain and working on this level. This is where my expertise in body psychotherapy comes in. After all, splints, night guards and treatments can bring relief and pain relief, yet there are one or more stressors that one should get to the bottom of in order to achieve sustainable relief from the symptoms. Again, we work individually, because every (life) story that leads to symptoms is different.
