Osteopathy & Physiotherapy
A whole person hangs on every vertebra ...
Osteopathy & Ortho bionomy
Craniosacral - visceral - structurally
The power of the gentle touch, without any pressure to succeed.
... follow the laws of life
The Ortho-Bionomy and the Craniosacral treatment are gentle osteopathic forms of treatment without harmful chiropractic interventions.
The Ortho-Bionomy can be used in a variety of ways, for example:
The following are used here:
The special, gentle mode of the treatment can free up your own resources and help to find your own and personal balance again.
The name Ortho-Bionomy is derived from the Greek and means "to follow the laws of life".
The basic principle of effect of Ortho-Bionomy is based on amplifying what we find - as an impulse for the body to correct itself.
I work with gentle and sensitive methods. For example, if a muscle is so tight that the function of a joint is disturbed, I will not stretch it violently, but I will move the person into a position that will further shorten this muscle and allow to this muscle to let go the tension and the supposedly safe position.
In this way, the body receives information in a gentle and painless way on how it can independently restore the natural harmony of this joint.
The craniosacral system is connected to the deepest levels of vitality. Using very gentle touches and a deep knowledge of functional physical relationships, the skeleton is realigned, organs, tissues and nerves relaxed, in order to bring people back into balance and harmony.
The tissues and fascia are invited to relax, so that the bony structures can come back into position and "the soul can come along".
This gentle body work, which we have been successfully offering in Buddhacasa on La Palma for years, is ideal for all stress-related symptoms. This therapy is also used for back pain, displaced vertebrae and joints, herniated discs, after accidents, for migraines, jaw tension, pelvic floor tension, menstrual cramps and much more.
Integrated Spinal Therapy and Pain Therapy at La Palma
...the art of straightening oneself
With Osteopathy (method of Upledger), Ortho-Bionomy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Kinesiology and biodynamic Body-Therapy (method of Wilhelm Reich/Gerda Boysen) Acupunkt and elektro Akupunktur.
The flexibility of the spine, in particular the first vertebra, is very important for our vital energy. Displacements of a singular vertebral can cause different physical, neurological and psychological symptoms. For example depression, fear, problems with the organs, pain in the back, slipped discs, headache, imbalance of the pelvis, unsecure way of walking a.m.m. Annette Harnisch developed since 1998 an integrated spinal treatment.
In our day and age almost all people have misalignments of the spine. Scoliosis, spinal curvature and twisting. Pelvic obliquities with differences in leg length are the order of the day. The mobility of the spine, especially the Atlas (1st cervical spine) plays a central role in our vitality. Displacements or fixation of individual vertebrae can cause various physical and psychological symptoms:
• Organ complaints
• Back pain from intervertebral disc wear
• herniated discs
• muscle tension
• Vertebral blockages
• A headache
• Oblique pelvis
• unsafe walking and much more
• Hip, knee and foot problems
The energetic spinal alignment involves the "whole" person and is by no means limited to the spine. Mind, body and soul are brought back into harmony, the energy channels "meridians" balanced and thus the self-healing powers can be activated and mobilized.
Since the nervous system runs in the spinal canal, and all organ systems in the body are supplied by nerve pathways, blockages in the spine can also affect and affect all organ systems. In addition, our nervous system stores old traumatic experiences that also affect our spine.

Physiocombi Back Massage
Physiotherapeutic Back - Massage
...integrated Physiotherapy in combination with a delicious oil-massage.
A combination of spine massages (method of Dorn/Breuss) with techniques of biodynamic Osteopathy, Acupressure, Akupunt ( Penzel) , Elektro Akupuntura, Kinesiology, soft release of the spine and joints, connective tissue massage...
It supports any treatment of the back or slipped discs, displaced vertebras and joints, sciatica, shoulder-arm syndrome, as well as internal diseases. But the main attention is focusing the spine with all its functions as the central axis of the body.
Kinesio Tape ...
Tapes, when used correctly, stimulate the fascia and meridians and can thus speed up the healing process considerably. I use this physiotherapeutic technique embedded in a manual therapy or the physio combi massage, best without oil.
Manual lymph drainage
The aim of this stroking massage is to support the lymphatic drainage with the help of circular, gentle hand movements.
We use manual lymphatic drainage to: Improve the lymphatic transport capacity Decongestion of body regions Freedom from pain Improvement of the self-motor function of the smooth muscles of the lymphatic vessels New formation of lymphatic vessels at points of interruption, after operations Vagotonization (relaxation)
The removal of tissue fluid is promoted by a gentle brush-and-kneading massage. The handles are oriented along the course of lymphatic vessels and meridians. Individual body regions are treated in a specific sequence: First, regions that are close to the lymphatic vessels at the right and left vein angle, then more distant. The slight increase in pressure in the tissue favors the absorption of tissue fluid via the initial vessels into the lymphatic system. The stretching of the tissue stimulates the smooth muscles of the lymphatic vessels to contract.
Those who are interested in manual lymphatic drainage will be delighted by the all-holy meridian massage, the lomi-lomi massage and the yoga thai massage.
Acidosis Treatment Session & T.N.D.R.
T.N.D.R. is called Técnica Naturista Desbloqueante Regeneradora
This means alternative medical technology for unblocking and regeneration.
Does that seem SPANISH to you? It is.
The Spanish doctor Dr. Cayo Martín from Bilbao developed this therapy based on the knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine and Western therapeutic approaches. This unblocking massage is of course holistic and not only frees the body from blockages.
Free your body - mind will follow
With little oil and latex gloves for better adhesion, the pain receptors in the periosteum and blocked acupuncture points are pressed , meridians and fascia are massaged.
This allows the brain programs to restrict movement to be controlled and reset so that the muscular-fascial tensions normalize. As a result, the articular surfaces and vertebral bodies are no longer pressed together as strongly, which is perceived by the receptors in our body and passed on to the brain. The pain is adjusted accordingly.
However, it is essential for the long-term effectiveness of therapy that the one-sided movement patterns that have led to the pain and sticking are consistently changed. So regularly practice a spinal yoga specially tailored to your symptoms. Otherwise, the corresponding exercise programs in the brain and the structure-threatening muscular-fascial surges will soon build up again, so that the pain will be sent again.

Acupuncture massage according to Penzel (APM) ...
Based on the Chinese energy theory, the acupuncture massage according to Penzel works as regulation therapy. The meridians that are deficient in energy are streaked with a metal stick, an antelope horn tip (technology from Thailand) or a gemstone tip, thereby restoring the energy flow. The acupuncture point can also be stimulated, in contrast to acupuncture without needles and thus without damage to the skin. All diseases that are also listed by the WHO on the acupuncture list can be treated with the APM. It is used particularly in pain therapy, rheumatic manifestations and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. I am happy to combine the AMP with "Touch for health" and kinesiology.
With the acupuncture massage you lie in your underwear on the massage bench.
Electro acupuncture without needles ...
Electro acupuncture and electro ear acupuncture are just as effective as acupuncture with needles. All diseases that are also listed by the WHO on the acupuncture list can be treated with acupuncture. It is used in particular in psychosomatic therapy, in emotional mischief and in pain therapy, for diseases of the musculoskeletal system. I am happy to combine the AMP with "Touch for health" and kinesiology.
Ayurvedic treatment for the spine
... straighten up mentally, emotionally and physically
A treatment with pads dipped in special herbal oils and Ayurvedic mineral-containing pastes on the spine to straighten the spine. Warm oil is poured in again and again over an hour and the spine is gently stretched. In this way, shrinked intervertebral discs can regenerate again. Fascia, connective tissue and synovial fluid are rebuilt and deposits can be excreted. Please pre-order at least 3 days in advance. I will send you a questionnaire so that I can put together the right pastes and herbal oils for you.
Our Ayurveda retreats can be found at Bed & Bodywork
