“I came to know about AktivOrtho™ through an acquaintance. My misery was very long and harsh as I had not fully recovered from the birth of my son 15 years ago. I had to opt for C-section as a possibility of natural delivery was ruled out by doctors. I delivered my baby boy but the road to recovery was upset by a number of ailments associated with the delivery. I experienced chronic headaches and lower back pain in a way that I had never experienced before.
“It seemed to me that I would never return natural health that I enjoyed before delivering. They (doctors) dubbed my symptoms as ‘postnatal depression’ and the strong medicines they prescribed shook up my entire system.
Thankfully for me, I finally learnt about AktivOrtho™ and the rest, as they say, is history. Less than a dozen sessions with its well-trained craniosacral therapist have changed my life for good and here I am—a healthy woman with positive attitude. My symptoms have amazingly reduced within two months from the commencement of my treatment. I really want to thank Dr. Gerd Mueller (MD) sincerely for bringing into India something that is totally European in terms of standard and approach. I also thank Mr. Himanshu Bhagat, my craniosacral therapist.
The affable staff, hi-tech exercise equipment and a highly-skilled therapist made me walk with confidence that I so fondly remember possessing prior to C-section. Thank You AktivOrtho™!!”
COMMENTS BY CRANIOSACRAL PHYSIOTHERAPIST
“Mrs. Seema, mother and software professional, had been suffering from chronic headaches and lower back pain ever since she gave birth to a baby boy 15 years ago through C-Section.
But the trauma of the surgery and anaesthesia were still persisting in her body, which I felt very clearly in her system while I was treating her. Her symptoms did not vanish post-delivery and she never recovered her original state of health.
I realized that all she needed to get back to better health and shape were few sessions of craniosacral therapy which releases the trapped emotions and restrictions in the fascia and muscles. I treated Mrs. Seema for about 12 sessions over a period of 2 months and her symptoms reduced significantly. Now, she is able to deal with her daily functional activities more efficiently and has a positive attitude toward life”.
