Qualified Physiotherapist and Massuer

Matthias Franz

I'm a fully qualified German physiotherapist since 1995 and after several years of experience in out-patients rehabilitation services I have been self employed since 2000.

After studying Shiatsu for one year and then working for a few months with an Ayurvedic doctor in India, my work evolved in a new direction.

Over the last 15 years i have created my own style of massage therapy including a specific way of warming and preparing the muscles with heat provided by bags of warm sand.
