Therapy for
Children and Infants

"Take care of things while they are still small."

Overview on our offerings

Children react much faster and stronger to external stimulus with their own expressions, since their organic and mental functions are not fully developed after birth. Babies and infants do not express themselves linguistically, and react with emotion rather than reason. This makes it necessary to work with sensitivity during a therapy with children, to take into account the therapeutically relevant difference between a child and an adult.

Our interdisciplinary concept, the close collaboration with parents and various medical specialists, allows a comprehensive care of the smallest patients as well as adults. Our in-house team consists of experienced, highly qualified and certified therapists.

If you are concerned about your child’s development, don’t hesitate to contact us. We are happy to assist and you are always welcome. Earliest possible help is an important step toward a successful therapy; essential developmental steps are already happening during the first months of life.
