Valérie Groeneweg

I graduated with a 6 year degree at the Superior School of Osteopathy in Paris in 2007. I started my career in Paris until 2008, when I moved to the Netherlands. I’ve been working at different practices until 2015. In January 2015 I started my own practice in the centre of Amsterdam, on the Herengracht (number 318).

In addition to treating adults, I’ve specialized the past years in the treatment of children. I’ve become a trained and passionate child osteopath, expanding my education continually.

Rutger Veneklaas

Since my youth I’ve had a great interest in sport. This sparked an interest in how we, as human beings, can live our lives in a more conscious and healthy way. This drive led me to study physiotherapy and osteopathy. During the osteopathic education in Ghent Belgium this vision grew to a big passion. In particular the thorough and complete approach in the osteopathy inspired me. ‘As an osteopath, you are basically a detective who is accurately searching for the various factors which overflow the bucket, decrease the loadability, and cause the complaints.’ Every human being is unique in this.

Every body is also complex and under the influence of many factors. I am convinced of the power of a holistic and complete treatment strategy. For this reason I have followed training in the area of consciousness and nutrition. Alongside that, I integrate technics and visions that I’ve developed from my time working as a physiotherapist and fitness instructor. I also endeavour to have a good cooperation with other doctors and paramedics. Everything is about optimizing your health.

In short, I will always strive for the most effective treatment strategy, with as basic principles a safe, thorough, expert and total approach.
