Hi, I’m ro. and I’m a TCM practitioner. My approach is a holistic one, which means I try to connect the dots between different symptoms, but also that I always see the patient as part of the society they live in. I believe that society is one of the main causes of the health issues we have with our body and mind. By the way- I’m not esoteric in any way.
I am an agender person, my pronouns are they in english (and none in german) and I am in-the-know about queer topics, so queers are especially welcome. I am a white person and would say that I am very conscious of topics like racism and racial bias. Any questions- just ask.
I am part of a collective. We will open our practice on the ground floor of the living community Klinge 10: https://klinge10.de/hauskonzept/praxiskollektiv/ (in german)
Training and education
From November-December 2019 I did an internship at the Tam Duc Traditional Medical Clinic in Ho-Chi-Minh-City with Dr. Dung Viet Ngyuen (Dr. June) and Dr. Monika Thanh Tam Kleemola. Before that I worked as an assistant practitioner for my teacher Stephan Raaz at the HPS Training Clinic for CM-practitioners in Berlin. And from 2014-2018 I did my training course as an alternative practitioner/healer and CM practitioner at the “Heilpraktikschule in Selbstverwaltung (HPS)” in Berlin.
I have been a coach for Muay Thai since 2012. From 2009-2012 I worked as a coordinator for anti-discrimination projects at “Gladt e.V.” in Berlin. In 2011 I completed my course in gender studies, ethnology and sociology at the University of Göttingen. The focus of my university courses were queer, post-colonial and socially critical topics.
