Our Therapy Concepts
Treatment success based on a wide range of therapeutic experiences
Based on the latest scientific findings, our multi-professional teams will create an individual therapy plan for you. Various therapy elements are coordinated, according to your needs, into a meaningful whole - for proven sustainable treatment success.
Because we want you to be able to enjoy your life again without a care.
Mindfulness-based exercises help rediscovering and score free at present to relive moments and listen to your body. This reduces stress and helps you to cope with everyday life in the future more coolly.
Bio feedback means the continuous feedback of biological signals. With the help of a computer, body signals, for example an increased vegetative tension or muscle tension, are confirmed and made aware. These signals are otherwise hard to perceive or very inaccurate. The primary goal of therapy is the recognition of relationships between thoughts, feelings and body reactions, as well as the perception and targeted influencing of physiological processes, which are important in maintaining psychological, psychosomatic and physical diseases.
Our clinic operates on the so-called reference therapists system. During the admission interview you get to know your reference therapist (psychologist or doctor), who will work out an individual disorder model with you on the basis of your biography. On this basis, he will work with you to draw up your individual therapy plan and develop targeted therapeutic interventions.
Whether yoga, progressive muscle relaxation or autogenic training: Relaxation methods help many people to relieve stress and relax. You become balanced and find it easier to sleep. We offer you a wide range of relaxation methods, which you can learn from us and use later at home.
We aim to bring you closer to healthy and pleasurable eating habits. In addition to communicating information on the basis of current scientific knowledge, promoting your personal responsibility is important to us. In that connectiona long-term stable change in eating behaviour is in the foreground.
The so-called "anti-diet principle" serves as the basis for our work. This focuses on the basis of a balanced diet, on the one hand on the physical signals such as hunger and satiety, and on the other hand on the sensory perception of taste and pleasure. We want you (re)learn a natural eating habit without guilt, restrictions or counting calories.
The biggest help for many sufferers is that they learn that they are not alone with their disease. Scientific studies have strongly confirmed this. Disease-specific, so-called indicative group psychotherapies, ensure the application of the highly effective procedure for individual areas of disturbance. From professional therapy groups for teachers to grief management, as many patients as possible should participate in specialised group therapies with us. So, a most effective therapy is possible.
Art and design therapy
Art therapy in the behavioural concept refers to the current problems of the patients themselves and their environment. Process-oriented model has a much higher value than result-oriented work. According to the behavioural therapeutic approach, existing resources are shown to patients to strengthen autonomous disease management. In addition, behaviours are clarified by the therapist and the group members' reflections and feedback, facilitating a transfer to everyday life, and initiating the modification of behaviours. The developed therapy goals are an integral part of the treatment plan.
Equine assisted therapy
The therapeutic work with the horse allows you to gain access to yourself. Equine assisted therapy has proven itself especially in psychotherapy for adolescents. You learn how to regain confidence, give up control and yet stay in the lead. You know your limits, find the courage to expand it and yet also, without guilt, to say 'no' when to gets too precarious.
Therapeutic riding is primarily used for anxiety disorders, trauma, emotionally unstable personality and other disorders, but can be offered in individual cases to all patients for whom it seems particularly suitable according to therapeutic assessment.
The term physical therapy covers all forms of treatment that use physical forces such as heat, light or water to provide relief and healing. These include, for example, various massages, heat packs, or electrotherapy with stimulation current applications, ultrasound, or short-wave therapy.
With the different types of physiotherapy we strengthen your muscles, mobilise your joints and improve your posture. For all physiotherapeutic treatments, a therapeutic approach is followed in which you are asked to actively participate. Usually self-exercise programmes are also taught, which makes it possible to continue the exercises at home. For a better quality of life in the long term.
Our social service counsels you and your family on psychosocial and legal matters that arise as a result of the respective illness. We help you with questions about and applications for rehabilitation, organising care after staying at our clinic and much more.
The consultation offer is part of the overall treatment plan and is available to varying degrees depending on the illness and treatment contract. The objective is "Helping people to help themselves", which is oriented towards individual needs on the one hand and competence on the other.
Sport therapy and physiotherapy
Our movement therapy or rather base groups are a solid, compulsory basic package, which is tailored to the needs of the individual wards, with their different focuses. The methods and the contents of the group are aimed first and foremost according to your needs and image of the disorder.
Movement is used as a medium for the different therapeutic targets. The group thus represents an integrated component within the behavioural medical concept. Functionality takes a back seat to goals such as new individual physical, interactional, emotional, cognitive, educational, social and psychological experiences.
The experience-oriented “sport” is in the foreground. You learn how reduce fears, avoidance and protective behaviour, and regulate stress states. You also gain a realistic assessment of your performance and resilience.
Sports scientists at the clinic, in collaboration with therapists, conceived the "Climbing Movement Therapy". It is not a question of climbing in a particularly performance-oriented manner, but of creating self-confidence in dealing with fears: Not avoiding fear, but facing it. Other important therapeutic topics are "giving up control", "trusting others" and "setting your own goals and limits".
Climbing is also a form of mindfulness training. When climbing, it is important not to constantly think about the consequences, but to concentrate on the next step. And only on that. Focusing on the "here and now" is very liberating for many patients. A huge load is taken off their shoulders. And the increase in physical fitness is also a positive effect of this form of therapy. This therapy offer will be evaluated in cooperation with the Sports University of the Technical University of Munich.
Therapeutic climbing is offered primarily for patients with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders and patients with trauma. Depending on available capacity in the groups, this therapy can also be offered to other patients if it seems particularly suitable after therapeutic assessment.
