Osteopathisches Zentrum fuer Kinder
Together with the organisation Volkshilfe, the OZK osteopathic centre for children in Vienna, Austria, has created a special programme to assist in the recovery of refugee children traumatised by their recent experiences. Such experiences leave their marks in the psycho-physical structures of the human organism. These imprints can be accessed and released through specific, manual techniques in a loving and relaxed atmosphere. The sessions may or may not require verbal communication. One of the osteopaths at OZK is a neurologist and speaks Arabic. His presence is a valuable resource for this project.
Osteopathy for children relieves the suffering of young and innocent victims of war and violent conflict. It supports them in creating a new start and a better future.
