Integrative pediatrics 

The child in focus

Integrative Medicine is our passion. It reflects our basic idea that the child is in focus. Holistic medicine is the meaningful interaction of scientific, conventional medicine and complementary, supplementary healing methods. Our approach is the anthroposophical medicine.

The two fields of medicine are not mutually exclusive, but complement each other to form a holistic approach of treatment.

In children self-healing powers are still very strongly developed. They can be optimally supported and healing approaches significantly expanded. The children should be able to develop in a balance of body, soul and spirit.

Your child's health is important to us.
