Our Therapy Concepts

To us, interdisciplinary therapy means teamwork: The physicians and nursing staff work hand in hand with a large team of specialised and dedicated therapists.

Affirmation work

Affirmations are believable sentences consciously prepared with the therapist, which are combined with breathing and postural exercises. They are a basic technique of cognitive psychotherapy.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a complementary and supportive offer for the production of physical and mental well-being. It is applied through smelling and intact Skin.

App-supported therapy

In order to be able to ensure optimal support independent of location, we already include the use of apps in the Eating Disorder Management Therapy in conversations. The Recovery Record App for those affected by eating disorders is one of the best apps in this field.

Archery

Therapeutic archery combines the sportive and the meditative element into an approach that puts the experience as well as the clarification and processing of mental processes in the foreground.

Art therapy

Art and design therapy teaches patients to depict their moods and emotions directly, both to themselves and their therapists. The subsequent discussion of the works gives rise to important insights. It is particularly interesting to compare the pictures from the beginning and the end of the inpatient stay – the success of the therapy is directly visible!

Biofeedback

Biofeedback is a behavioural medical treatment technique in which physiological signals such as heart rate, breathing curve and muscle tone are registered and reported back to the patient visually and/or acoustically. Through the direct feedback of the body signals, which are otherwise not consciously perceptible, one can receive a better perception and influence certain body functions positively.

Breathing therapy

The feeling of being able to breathe is a central point in psychosomatic therapy. Nothing has such a holistic effect on the organism, metabolism and immune system as the breath. Breathing perception and breathing techniques are practiced in cooperation with body therapists.

Mindfulness training

Mindfulness is the ability to consciously direct attention in the here and now. It is a key skill in modern scientific psychotherapy. The training takes place in psychotherapeutic as well as body and sensory oriented procedures.

Occupational therapy

Illnesses and accidents often limit affected persons. Even little limitations in the muscles or sensitivity make movements that otherwise seem completely normal more difficult. In occupational therapy, patients learn how to manage their everyday lives themselves.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy includes all treatment forms, collectively, that use physical effects such as heat, light or water, to relieve or heal pain. This includes, for instance, massage, heat wrapping or stimulation current applications.

Physiotherapy

In different types of physiotherapy, we strengthen patients’ muscles, mobilise their joints and improve posture. Patients learn exercises that they can regularly carry out later without a therapist in order to live without pain long-term.

Sport therapy and physiotherapy

Movement is always good for you and can help during treatment in a number of ways: In movement therapy, people learn how to perceive their bodies in a positive way. Patients can get active here and develop trust in their bodies, completely without performance pressure. The therapists utilise a variety of methods to optimally take the respective patient’s needs into account.

Work with relatives

The protracted course of psychosomatic illnesses requires the involvement of relatives and important caregivers. In our family program "Surf & Scout", caregivers are trained to find a balance between support and self-care.
