"The holistic approach to physiotherapy not only has a major impact on the physiotherapists during the courses but also in practice on their clients. Determining the root cause instead of simply treating the symptoms of physical pain, offers solutions for the long term. That is an eye-opener. The methods learned during the courses change therapists into game changers.
We want to create a community of innovative therapists who dare to think differently. A group of therapists who spread the holistic way of thinking in their environment and ultimately change the way of thinking in health care."
