Are there pet therapies available?

Yes, we offer animal-assisted dog and horse therapies through prescription by the doctor. The AST (Animal Supported Therapy) is offered by registered psychotherapists and complements conventional psychotherapeutic methods. Dogs have a very calming effect as part of the therapy, the animal-human communication supports and improves the therapeutic situation and promotes general well-being and quality of life. The hippotherapy relies on specially trained horses, dealing with these strengthens the self-confidence and often improves the handling of decisions.
