My motto is “I live and love movement”, and this is what I want to share with you.

Physiotherapy and sportssciences are two decisive aspects in my life. My private and my professional life are determined by movement, body, mind and soul. I am there for you, if you decide your therapy to be an active path marked by high -quality and sustainability.

Profit from the experience I have gathered over the past years at the orthopaedic hospital Speising, my Masters Degree in Applied Sportssciences, my numerous further qualifications as well as my network of orthopaedists and colleagues.
