Your health is my goal – my path to chiropractic.

If your health is out of balance, this manifests itself in a wide variety of symptoms. However, I do not treat the symptoms, but the causes of physical complaints. I allow the body to activate its self-healing powers through a variety of stimuli and support. I train and reprogram the body so that it can find its centre again and pave the way for a better quality of life.


I have been a chiropractor with heart and soul since February 2010. It's been a long journey, but my love for American chiropractic was love at first sight.

It all began when I was in the middle of retraining as a non-medical practitioner in 2008 and came into contact with American Chiropractic for the first time at an open day. I was immediately fascinated by what a fellow alternative practitioner from Cottbus, who had been working with American chiropractic methods for years, told me. For example, I was fascinated by the fact that this treatment offers the possibility of using different, but above all very gentle methods to specifically identify and solve problems.

My future career path was clear to me, and I completed my chiropractor training in Berlin at the same time as retraining as an alternative practitioner. In November 2009, I completed both training programmes, ordered my first chiropractic table and started chiropractic treatments straight away. In February 2010, I opened my chiropractic practice in Berlin – centrally located between the radio tower and Charlottenburg Palace. I've been there ever since!

I regularly take part in further training courses such as the Chiropractic Campus so that I can guarantee my patients state-of-the-art treatment at all times.

I'm still happy about my decision to go into chiropractic every day. And there are always these incredibly wonderful moments in my work as a chiropractor, for example when I treat babies who are only a few days old and are brought to my practice by their parents with KISS syndrome. If the children and their parents relax after treatment, that is the greatest reward for me.

For me, honesty is the basis for a trusting working relationship and the desired treatment success. That is why I explain to all my patients that, particularly in the case of long-standing health problems, a positive change will usually only occur after several treatments. I want my patients to understand how American chiropractic works and what our goal is. I can explain this by using X-ray and CT images or my spinal column model, among other things.

My conclusion:

From my point of view, it is something special to be able to work as a chiropractor – because I can help patients and not so many alternative practitioners have offered it so far. Nothing better could have happened to me than American chiropractic – it was like love at first sight.

I am very much looking forward to hearing from you.
