About me

Ute Schmidt:
Born in 1964
Active as an alternative practitioner in uncommitted practice since 1992

Main focus:

My desire to become an alternative practitioner was aroused by personal experiences with alternative medicine.
In my younger days, a deformation of my spine (scoliosis) was diagnosed. I had to quit competitive sports and after several years of unsuccessful therapy, conventional medicine recommended surgery which would result in an irrevocable hardening of the spine.

Fortunately, and acting upon the advice of a physiotherapist, I underwent a convalescent treatment at the Katharina-Schroth hospital which offers a unique therapy for patients with scoliosis. I developed a more positive attitude towards life due to the massages, specific exercises and breath control, but also because of the confrontation with my medical condition. The condition of my spine improved and, for the first time, I became aware of the interconnection of body and mind. Subsequently, I started my training as an alternative practitioner.
