Hello! I’m Hans
Practitioner of Osteopathy
I was searching in vain for years to understand and fix my own back pain. Rolfing made sense so I tried the 10 series. It helped long term. I began the training in Boulder Colorado at the Rolf Institute in 2000 and then to further my knowledge, I took the training in Osteopathy here in Vancouver at the Canadian College of Osteopathy, which offered much more precision and insight to my work.
I have seen the advantages of using Rolfing and Osteopathy in my treatments. Both are holistic therapies. Since the whole body works as one unit and not as separate parts, this view is key to the effectiveness of both my work. Osteopathy has put a lot more “tools” in my toolbox and has given me a greater sense of palpation and understanding of how things work and has provided me a greater insight on how to best treat safely and effectively.
I enjoy helping people from all walks of life to move better and live better with Rolfing and Osteopathy!
