The practice in Berlin and Munich remains open.
First of all, the most important thing: Your agreed appointment with me will remain in place for the next few weeks.
The practice remains open for you.
The exit restriction allows you to visit a doctor or “Heilpraktiker”
The provisional exit restriction in Bavaria (original text can be found below) allows you to visit a doctor or “Heilpraktiker”. – The decision how urgent your visit to me is, I can’t take away from you. But you are welcome to call me if you have any questions or need advice.
All workshops are cancelled until 19.04.2020
No wellness massage.
As a pure ordering practice – without public passage – there is no increased risk in our joint practice. Our already high hygiene standards have been further optimised in Berlin and Munich in recent days and adapted to the current infection situation.
Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment to minimize additional contacts.
I waive the obligatory “handshake”. Nevertheless, contact between therapist and patient cannot be avoided. Therefore I ask you to wash your hands in the practice BEFORE and AFTER each treatment.
I myself am in the best of health and will be as happy as you when this situation is over.
With your help, we will be able to provide a safe treatment environment in our practice for all those who need help with their complaints in the coming weeks. Together we will soon have mastered this challenge.
Below you will find a summary of useful recommendations for your upcoming appointment.

(b) the use of medical and veterinary care (e.g. visits to doctors, medical treatment; blood donations are expressly permitted) and visits to members of the assisting professions where this is medically necessary (e.g. psycho- and physiotherapists)
c) Supply visits for everyday necessities (e.g. grocery stores, beverage markets, pet supply stores, letter and mail-order companies, pharmacies, drugstores, medical supply stores, opticians, hearing aid acousticians, banks and cash machines, post offices, petrol stations, car repair shops, dry cleaners and the handing out of postal voting documents). ” End of quote
- Rechtsanwalt Rene Sasse – Was ist medizinisch dringend?
Zitat: Quote: “The decree would like to differentiate between the independent health care professions (Doctor and “Heilpraktiker” = medical provider) and the health care professions (e.g. physiotherapists = helping professions). While attendance at the former professions should always be permissible, this applies to health care professions only if there is an urgent need for it.
