“Taking this course was a very good decision for me. Klaus’ professional treatment of climbing injuries and his unique technique enriches my practice very much. Every climbing injury I treated after this course ended up in a positive result. The climbers are thrilled, they climb and their fingers don’t hurt anymore. Before that treatment they had to take a long break, only got kinesiology taping or even an injection. The Isele-method solves pain in a seemingly simple way that it is nearly surprising. As physio I studied many years anatomy. Actually I have to admit that I didn’t really think effectively in terms of hand therapy… I thank Klaus for the valuable information and experiences which opened my eyes! This course and the way he holds the course is great. Klaus is a very friendly person and a great expert. I definitely can recommend this education.”

“The advanced training on the “Isele-method” with Klaus was exactly what I was looking for for my work with climbers – effective, goal-oriented and, above all, client-centered. The focus is on the climbers and the goal of getting back to their original climbing level as quickly as possible without pain. The methods are now an integral part of my work and there is hardly a day in practice in which I do not fall back on what I have learned. Thanks to the format of the training – one to one – I was able to practice the various methods in detail, ask a lot of questions and also learn a lot about the working method and excellent diagnostics from Klaus. Thanks to Klaus and Anneliese!”
