    The key to pain-free movement

  • About me

    I'm a Professional Fasciatherapist and Bodyworker based in Wiesbaden, Germany

    Peter Scholten, English Speaking Therapist in Wiesbaden, Germany

    Peter Scholten

    Hi, I'm Peter Scholten, a certified Senmotic© Fasciatherapist with over ten years of experience in the field. I am also the author of "The Bad Back Manual", which aims to stop people making the lifestyle mistakes that cause bad posture and physical pain.

     

    I believe that people can only truly be proficient in any discipline if they specialise in it. Once I had discovered fasciatherapy and seen the results for myself, I decided to specialise in that alone. I believe that fasciatherapy is perhaps the most effective approach for treating back pain, neck pain and posture-related problems - for people and for horses.

     

    I have successfully treated clients with many different posture and physical pain problems. In addition to correcting those problems through myofascial release techniques, I aim to ensure that clients gain a better understanding of their own bodies and how to avoid making the mistakes that lead to or exacerbate the problems they experience. My clients have included dancers, yoga teachers, engineers, sportspeople and military personnel, amongst others.

     

    Good posture and natural pain-free movement are two sides of the same coin, which is why I have also created an online course, entitled: "Improve Your Posture and Get Rid of Your Back Pain".

     

    I have practiced Martial Arts for more than thirty years and have been a professional therapist since 2007.

     

    I speak fluent English, German and French.

  • What is Fasciatherapy or Myofascial Release Therapy?

    Healthy fascia (connective tissue), is critical for natural, pain-free movement

    Myofascial Release Technique

    Connective Tissue: The Key to Good Posture

    Fasciatherapy can improve your posture and eliminate back pain

    Fasciatherapy, also known as Myofascial Release Therapy, aims to eliminate restrictions and tensions in the connective tissue that cause pain and poor posture.

     

    It is not simply a massage technique, but a treatment of the entire fascia network (connective tissue). Connective tissue has only recently been 're-discovered' by science as the 'missing link' in effective physical therapy.

     

    Our fascia is a web of elastic, hyaluronic-rich membranes inside our bodies that encase muscles and organs, connecting them to each other and the skeletal structure.

     

    Tension and movement restrictions in the body can be caused by many factors, including injury, repetitive strain, conditions such as scoliosis or other birth defects, physically challenging working conditions (including long hours sitting in front of a computer!), lack of movement, and psychological issues. Once tension is created and damaging postural habits set in, fascia starts to lose elasticity and can no longer perform its essential flexible connective function.

     

    Fasciatherapy aims to reanimate the fascial membranes, allowing them to become rehydrated, regain their suppleness and release tension, thus breaking the cycle that 'fixes' poor posture and unhealthy movement patterns.

    • FAQ

      Frequently Asked Questions

      When to consider fasciatherapy

      Fasciatherapy is an alternative treatment that does not pretend to offer a cure for all ills. It cannot replace a consultation with your GP or doctor.

       

      Our experience shows that better movement quality and better posture can have a positive effect on people suffering from pain or other musko-skeletal disorders - neck, shoulder and lower back pain can often be reduced or eliminated.

       

      It can also improve performance in sports, dance and other physical activities.

       

      Clearly, improvements in movement quality and relief from pain lead to a host of psychological benefits, including better sleep quality, less anxiety, and relief from stress, fatigue and headaches.

      When not to consider fasciatherapy

      We do not recommend fasciatherapy if:

      • you are pregnant
      • you are significantly overweight
      • you use anti-depressants or other psychotropic medicine
      • you are currently dealing with any major health problems (cancer, etc.)

      Please mention any present or past health issues before the first session. Also, please let me know about any other drugs or treatments you might currently be following.

      In case of doubt, please ask your doctor about possible contraindications with regards to fasciatherapy.

      What happens during the first session?

      We start by analyzing your movement patterns and posture. The fasciatherapy treatment itself takes place on a massage table. The therapist will use a deep but non-invasive pressure on your connective tissue, thus reducing tension and movement restrictions.

      The treatment is generally painless, though people tend to have different levels of sensitivity.

      How many sessions do I need?

      A complete cycle of 10 sessions is usually recommended, although the first three sessions in the cycle can sometimes be sufficient. Each session takes between 75 and 120 minutes, at the end of which you will be instructed in a short exercise to be practiced at home in order to ensure the lasting effect of the treatment.

      When and how often?

      Consider taking one session every fortnight. A ten-session cycle will take you about four to six months. This gives you enough time to improve your posture and movement patterns in everyday life, thus ensuring that the benefits of the treatment are long term.

      Once the cycle is completed, you do not need additional sessions for at least a year, if at all. After that, one or two sessions a year is usually sufficient.

      Cost and payment

      One session costs €180 or $200 US. We accept both currencies. You will usually pay cash on the day of your session, but you can also use Paypal if preferred. The cost includes German VAT (19%) and you will receive a receipt by e-mail.

      The cost for fasciatherapy is unfortunately not usually reimbursed by health insurance plans.

      Department of Defense personnel may be eligible to use the U.S. Forces Tax-Relief Program to avoid paying VAT for this service. We participate in this program. Please make sure to bring the NF VAT form to your appointment.

      Do you also work in the UK?

      I often travel to different parts of the UK. If the legal and practical conditions are met, I'm happy to discuss potential training or treatment courses.

    • Personalised Treatments for International Clients

      Solutions tailored to your needs

      International Clients

      Many of my clients come to me as a last resort, having tried many of the other better known therapies, including traditional physiotherapy and osteopathy. Unfortunately, with fasciatherapy still relatively unknown in many countries, it can be difficult to find a properly trained fasciatherapist where you live.

       

      For clients outside Germany, I am happy to discuss tailored treatment programmes whereby a series of fasciatherapy sessions can be delivered over the course of several days or longer. The Senmotic fasciatherapy programme is usually based around a series of 3 or 10 sessions, but for clients visiting from abroad we can adapt the number of sessions depending on your needs and time frame.

       

      Getting to Wiesbaden via Frankfurt

      My practice is located in the German city of Wiesbaden, an easy 30-minute car journey or direct 40-minute train journey from Frankfurt International Airport. Wiesbaden is a beautiful historical city which offers a range of comfortable accommodation options and I am happy to offer recommendations on request.

       

      Please feel free to contact me by e-mail or telephone for an initial consultation. I can then decide whether I think a series of sessions would be appropriate and we can discuss further details. I speak fluent English, German and French.

      Results

      Please note that I will only take on clients if I feel there is a good chance of achieving results. I cannot guarantee that your problems will be solved but many clients find that fasciatherapy turns out to be the most effective solution and offers long-term relief from back pain, neck pain and a range of posture-related problems.

       

      I have successfully helped many different types of people, including former professional dancers, yoga teachers, sportspeople, and military personnel – some of my clients have left reviews on Google so feel free to read through those.

      International consultations

      I am also available for private consultations abroad for clients who are unable to travel to Germany - please get in touch to discuss your needs.

    • Learn Martial Arts

      Efficient self-defence and fluid movement!

      Martial Arts Classes in Wiesbaden

      Senmotic Functional Defence is a martial art form that shares roots with Wing Chun. The latter is a style of martial arts that became famous mainly through Bruce Lee, who later adapted it into Jeet Kune Do.

       

      This famous "street fighting style" has since undergone many improvements, especially with regard to bio-mechanics and training methods (Neuro-Tactile-Programming). Some things still look familiar though, like the Sil-Nim-Tao solo form (which provides deep relaxation and releases tension) and the sticky hands exercise, also known as chi-sao. Sparring and more realistic fighting situations become part of the training, too - when the student is ready.

       

      Today, Senmotic Functional Defence is not only a very efficient form of self-defence, it is also a fascinating and instructive way to learn about bio-mechanics, anatomy and self-awareness (mindfulness). I teach in English, German or French in individual lessons of sixty to ninety minutes in my Wiesbaden practice. I teach to black belt level in traditional martial arts as well as beginner's level.

       

      A sixty minute individual lesson costs €60. By appointment only.
