Sports Therapy

Sports Therapy

We base our therapeutic measures on a holistic approach, with regard to the physical-emotional unity of the patient.

In group therapy sessions, motor skills, physical fitness and social skills are strengthened. In individual therapy sessions, the focus is on the perception of the disease, such as body perception, weight loss and increasing drive. Psycho-educational methods, such as mental training and anti-aggression training, are integrated as needed.
