WELCOME DEAR VISITOR,
My name is Anika, I am a Physical Therapist licensed in Germany. After having obtained my Physical Therapy degree in Potsdam, Germany, I successfully completed further qualification programs (“Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation”, “Treatment of Parkinson patients”, “Lymphatic Drainage”).
During my work at a Berlin hospital I specialized in early rehabilitation and post-rehabilitation and gathered clinical experience. After moving to the beautiful Bay area I am now working with clients requiring post-rehabilitation and improved fitness performance.
I am ambitious to provide comprehensive services which include the careful assessment and evaluation of the client’s condition, the proper treatment through corrective exercising to enhance healing and to prevent further injuries.
My goal is to educate my clients on how to help themselves. I teach them how to use their bodies more efficiently to avoid pain, damage on structures and unnecessary loss of energy. Hereby following a holistic approach as well as incorporating the clinical experience and the background as a physical therapist proved to be most effective.
I have been dealing with complex cases where an isolated treatment of the “obvious” problem area would not have led to satisfactory results in the long run. Sometimes old moving patterns have to be overcome in order to reach the desired outcome. A flat foot for example can give you a very unpleasant irritation in the jaw area. Making use of a training using muscle chains may have a huge impact on your well-being and the proper functioning of your body.
Retired but still kicking? I have been working a lot with senior citizens who had suffered a stroke or have to deal with Parkinson disease. After having worked with me they were able to considerably improve their mobility and enjoy their lives.
My clientele also includes younger people with pain issues caused by past sports injuries or related to stress or wrong posture.
Working with empathy and dedication I will try all I can to help you to enhance healing and achieve well-being.
I am looking forward to working with you.
