Growing up in Grindelwald in the heart of the Swiss alps, ice hockey has been the center of my life ever since I can remember. I also liked to play tennis. Sports were very important to me throughout my life. Soon I decided to leave home to other places in Switzerland and North America for my big passion, the great game of hockey. I made many invaluable experiences and had lots of fun being a professional athlete for 13 years. After finishing school and a couple of degrees in the field of information technology, all of which I was able to do during my hockey career, I felt well prepared for life after hockey. I've always felt a strong urge to expand my knowledge in many different fields of education and I especially love languages. I basically speak 7 languages today. But fate wanted things to be much different. At the age of only 32 I was diagnosed with the commonly known to be fatal degenerative neurological disorder named ALS. I was given 3-5 years to live. But my stubbornness, typical for people from the mountainous regions of the country, as well as my instinctive willingness to fight for survival never accepted this verdict. I am convinced I would not be alive anymore so many years after the diagnosis, had it not been for the many changes I made in my life due to my insights I thankfully learned on the journey of my life. Together with Magdalena a in every aspect completely different life began. And those experiences we would like to pass on to our clients.
The fascination called the human body has captured me at a very early age. The joy of movement and sports in general have accompanied me throughout my entire life. Whether as a former swimmer, in my occupation as a physical education's teacher with a Master's degree in Science and Kinesiology, as a personal strength and conditioning trainer or simply when performing sports and physical activities as a hobby.
When I earned my master's degree at the University of Zurich in 2004 I didn't yet know how glad I would be for it. And for different reasons than intended.
I was fortunate enough to be able to experience friendships and acquaintances with professional athletes and people in that business. World class triathletes and rowers, professional hockey and soccer players as well as greats in world tennis allowed me to catch a glimpse into their domains. I could take so many invaluable experiences from each of these worlds. As unique and different these athletes and their sports are, as special are their individual ways of life. Of course training, dedication, nutrition and recovery are essential. And every one of these aspects is a little different for every athlete and for every sport. But one thing stays the same across everything: The belief in yourself! To what an extreme extent that belief can influence one's life and success I didn't really understand until I saw Stefan and his challenge with ALS. It's been an impressive lesson for life!
Our journey together:
'Don't be concerned that things appear to be falling apart: this has to happen in order for something new and wonderful to emerge.' - unknown
When we began our journey together we didn't know what would await us or how long it would be. Granted, nobody knows that. But when one party of a freshly in love couple is given 3-5 years to live that definitely makes you think! You automatically ask yourself if it even makes sense to start a relationship and you wonder what you can expect from such a liaison.
We decided to do it and to enjoy each other as much and as intense as we can. Truly a new beginning.
Soon after Stefan went to San Diego as it's always been a dream of his to live there. He wanted to be away from everything and from the hockey world for a while. He felt at home there. It was there in California that he started to do extensive research about health and the human body and he began to look for alternative solution for his apparently insoluble problem. Another new beginning.
Because there are simply more options for alternative health treatments than at home in Switzerland, we both decided to continue our quest for health overseas in beautiful San Diego.
And thus a truly extraordinary journey took it's course. It not only brought us into geographically new worlds but also broadened our horizon in almost every conceivable way. But the new path together also brought us to our limits, limits that in hindsight we can call illusionary limits. It's not exaggerated to say that this journey with ALS is so dramatic and extreme that it automatically makes all people involved grow.
Among others the works of David Wilcock, David Wolfe, Wayne Dyer, Gregg Braden, Bruce Lipton and Daniel Vitalis inspired us very much. The teachings of herbalism, of a profound healthy nutrition, of homeopathy, of the human Chakra energy centers, of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), of neuroaccoustics, of hypnosis and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, see 'our work' page) are only a few of the topics that fascinate us and about which we want to continually learn more.
About three and a half years ago Stefan suffered a pretty severe pneumonia which brought us back to living in Switzerland permanently. Another brand new chapter in our lives began that came with major changes in everything we knew.
We decided to further educate ourselves and pass on the knowledge we are continuously acquiring to other people committed to making the most out of their health and their lives, regardless of the circumstances. And it doesn't matter how and where someone begins to improve his or her life. The important thing is that one starts at all - a bioindividual new beginning!
