Profile

My Name is Annette and I am a Healer (Physiotherapist and Animal Osteopath).  I have a strong affinity with the natural world and stay fit and healthy by living a full and healthy life, by practising what I teach.

From an early age I developed a connectedness to the animal kingdom especially horses which eventually allowed me to combine my love of horses with my passion of healing - a perfect job for me (but I am getting ahead of myself).

Before I was able to start my perfect job, I studied physiotherapy in Germany and gained my Diploma in 1999.  After graduation I worked in neurological and orthopaedic departments allowing me to grow my experience in a clinical environment.  Gaining a postgraduate Diploma, I started working for Riding for Disabled in my Hometown and 300 km further afield at a big institution in Wonsheim/Rheinland Pfalz, renowned as leaders in their field.  During this time I completed additional studies and gained my Diploma in Osteopathy for Animals in 2004.

I then took a working holiday in New Zealand involving extensive travel for several years.  This allowed me to grow my knowledge base and develop an appreciation of other cultures and their practices which complemented my postgraduate studies.

In 2012,  I started freelance work and finally opened my practice in 2013 in Nürnberg which has allowed me to focus on my areas of specialisation and use the knowdedge and skills I have gained from working in private Practices both overseas and at home.
