What is physiotherapy?


Physiotherapy has been officially recognized in Switzerland as a paramedical profession since 1966. It is both the heir of very old techniques and the beneficiary of the most recent scientific acquisitions. Physiotherapy refers to the World Health Organization's (WHO) definition that health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Any disturbance occurring in a specific region of the body may manifest itself as tensions or deformations in any other part of the body.


The human body is an entity in which structure and function are mutually and reciprocally interdependent.


By definition, physiotherapy is a discipline aimed at the prevention, maintenance, and optimal functional restoration of a person's physical abilities throughout their life. Physiotherapy treats individuals of all ages (individually or in groups) and intervenes when bodily functions and movements are hampered by pain, stiffness, paralysis, and other organic disorders or illnesses, as well as by the consequences of an accident or poor posture.

Reflexology & Massage therapy

Foot reflexology is a manual therapy that can treat a disorder by observing it in its context, that is to say in relation to the individual as a whole. The benefits of reflexology include, among other things, providing relaxation and deep relaxation, releasing stress and nervous tension, and energizing the body with the harmonization of vital functions.

Massage therapy has effects that can be calming or energizing, can decrease nervous excitability, relieve conditions caused by stress (including back pain, migraine, exhaustion, and insomnia), increase blood circulation and lymphatic, and lead to a state of general well-being. It also has other therapeutic applications.
