Friederike Günther, German Naturopath, M.Sc. Osteopathy

As a teenager, I wanted to become a doctor, just like my dad. However, I took a little detour to dedicate myself to my second passion: languages! Trained as a bilingual secretary for English and Spanish, I gained first work experience for almost three years.

As time went by, I recognized that my dream of becoming a professional in the medical field had still survived, and I asked my dad's friend, who is a chiropractor, to observe him for a few days. Immediately, I was intrigued! There are actually alternative ways to treat and help a suffering patient, without using medication or injections!

My journey then led me to the AECC in Bournemouth, Dorset, where I finished one term of Chiropractic studies before returning to Germany to gain both bachelor's and master's degree in osteopathy. I worked as an osteopath in Frankfurt and Dortmund clinics and am continuing my post-graduate studies in pre- and post-natal osteopathy, special manipulation techniques, and many more. I'm a registered member in three professional associations which uphold high standards on osteopathic education for our patients' safety.

Empathy and a trusting practitioner-patient relationship come naturally to me. I especially care about pediatric osteopathy and the various ways to osteopathically encourage and enable pregnant women during their journey.

In my free time I enjoy being in nature, going for a run, and travelling, preferably to the mountains or to the sea.
