Welcome to Therapiemaly:
A Clinic for Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, and the Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) / Typaldos Method!

Therapy Types

Since I am both a physiotherapist and an osteopath, I work with the knowledge and experience of both professions. I do my best to adapt my therapy to my patients, which means I often mix the two directions. If you choose me as your osteopath, I may give you a few exercises to practice at home and I will work on your body posture together with you. If you mainly wish to use my services as a physiotherapist, then I cannot help but use my osteopathic judgment and will also work correctively, provided you allow me to do so.

I have been increasingly involved in the Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) and the associated Typaldos method since 2008. Due to this method’s efficiency, a fact perceived by my patients as well as myself, FDM (Typaldos methods) is assuming an increasingly important role in my therapeutic work, although putting it into practice is hard work for both sides.

Osteopathy is a holistic method of diagnosis and therapy. Its objective is to restore mobility and self-healing. The path to this objective leads us through the body’s structure.

There are three osteopathic subfields, each closely connected to one another:

Structural Osteopathy:

Structural osteopathy includes any technique that mobilizes and corrects joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia. The osteopathic treatment makes use of soft and subtle methods, although direct techniques are sometimes also used.

Craniosacral Osteopathy:

The elements of the craniosacral system are the flexible structure of the cranial bone and the sacrum, which is connected to the skull through the inelastic dural duct and the cerebrospinal fluid. This hydraulic system transfers ultra-fine movements that take place inside of the skull. These micro-movements are rhythmic pulsations that propagate throughout the entire body. Cranial dysfunctions can have varied and wide-reaching consequences on the entire neurovegetative and vascular system; craniosacral osteopathy treats such dysfunctions.

Visceral Osteopathy:

Mobility, the most crucial criterion for optimum functionality, is the foundation of visceral osteopathy, which evaluates and treats movement and the rhythm of the internal organs.

All of these subfields form an entirety in the hands of the osteopath, who can help individuals take the step towards self-healing.

Physiotherapy is therapy on the human locomotive system. Physiotherapists have a vast range of active exercises, passive, and passive-assistive techniques to choose from to help patients with their pain. The range of conditions treated is broad and spans across all medical fields, including orthopedics, traumatology, neurology, internal care, geriatrics, and pediatrics. Whether it’s pain, limited movement, hyperkinesia or instability, neurological failure, or something else, there are many reasons a person will visit a physiotherapist. Personal responsibility on the part of the patient is a very important point for me in physiotherapeutic work. The patient must have opportunities to become involved in his or her healing.

The Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) and associated Typaldos method is a new therapeutic approach for treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Pain is seen as being caused by anatomic deformations (distortions) of the fascia (connective tissue) and can be remedied by FDM therapists using manual techniques.

In acute cases, correction of such distortions brings about an immediate increase in resilience and pain reduction. For chronic pain, the FDM treatment (using the Typaldos method) aims to relax adhesions and stuck connective tissue in order to reduce the pain to a treatable state.

FDM was developed by Dr. Stephen Typaldos, an American osteopath and emergency physician starting in 1991. When Typaldos saw that the therapy methods available to him were not effective enough, he began to devote attention to the body language and verbal expression of his patients. Thanks to this, and to his practical experience, he found a total of six fascia distortions, going on to develop FDM and the corresponding therapy, the Typaldos method.

Stephen Typaldos passed away suddenly on April 5th, 2006 at the age of 49, and now it is up to his students to continue developing and spreading FDM.

If you wish to be recompensed for treatment with me, you always need a medical prescription, authorized by your health insurance provider.

Please bring your medical prescription to our first appointement.

A treatment lasts up to 45 minutes and costs 80 euros.

The prescription should specify the following:

First, the appropriate diagnosis; then: 10 x 45-minute physiotherapy sessions plus 10 x 15-minute massage sessions just to be sure. This is due to the fact that some health insurance providers shorten the treatment time to 30 minutes.

For WGKK, NÖGKK, KFA, BVA and SVA, I can arrange authorization for you by fax, or you can visit your authorizing office in person.

The prescription should specify the following:

First, the appropriate diagnosis, then: 10 x 45-minute osteopathy sessions

For osteopathy sessions your health insurance provider will not refund any money.

Preventive Treatment and Consultation:
You don’t need a medical prescription and you don’t get any money refunded.

My fee must be paid in cash after each therapy unit. You can submit the authorized prescription and invoice in full at the end of the treatment. The amount refunded differs from provider to provider (anywhere between 15 and 30 euros). If you have any specific questions, just call me, 0699/12294774!

Please note that I must charge for missed appointments not canceled at least one business day in advance by calling 0699/12294774.
