Autogenic Training is a relaxation technique based on autosuggestion (self-manipulative influence of an idea or sensation).
The Sling Table is used in physical therapy as a therapeutic aid to treat painful or immobile parts of the body.
Electrotherapy (synonymously called stimulation current therapy) is the application of electric current in physical therapy. The appropriate voltages are applied through electrodes that are conductively connected to the skin surface. It is mainly used to relieve pain, improve circulation and stimulate paralyzed muscles.
Chiropractic is an alternative medical, biomechanical treatment method aimed at restoring normal mobility of joints, especially the spine.
Acupoint Meridian Massage (from traditional Chinese medicine) refers to a technique for stimulating defined "pathways", which in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are channels (meridians) in which life energy (Qi) flows. Each meridian is associated with a functional circuit (organ system).
The Kinesio-Tape (also called Taping) is a therapy method for painful illnesses, in particular of the muscle, tendon or skeleton apparatus. The mechanisms of action are direct stimulation of skin receptors for pain relief and wave-like tissue elevation under the tape, which leads to an increased blood and lymph circulation.
Pelvic floor training is indicated as postpartum exercise after pregnancy and childbirth, in cases of bladder and uterus prolapse, urinary or culinary incontinence, and leads to tightening and control of the pelvic floor muscles.
Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a branch of osteopathy. Through gentle mobilization of the central connective tissue structures (as a treatment on the skull or pelvis), deep-seated areas of tension can be released.
Myofascial integration (according to B. Geissler) is a further development of the fascia distortion model according to S. Typhaldos, in which connective tissue force transmission pathways are converted into a functional status.

Hand therapy deals specifically with the characteristics and functions of the hand, as well as the limitations associated with it.
Manual therapy involves special handgrip techniques that are used to localize movement disorders in the extremities - joints or spine. In addition, this form of therapy is suitable for both pain relief and mobilization of movement restrictions.
Sensory integration is the ability to organize sensory impressions in order to make sense of them. In therapy, targeted stimuli are used to improve integration. It is mainly used in children.
This therapy enables the patient to learn in a practical and everyday way. In the case of disturbed perception, guided interaction with hands and body during everyday events can help to improve the sensed information search. This guided interaction experience enhances motor, cognitive and emotional performance.
