Anniversary of death - Dr Viola Frymann

Frymann D.O.'s death today, I am making available an inspiring foreword that she wrote in 2008 as the foreword to a book on paediatric osteopathy by Christoph Plothe and myself. She had the expertise to bring together interdisciplinary experts. The workshop was terrific, Dr Frank Willard, Dr Peter Springall (neurologist), Dr Claude Valenti (ophthalmologist) and Dr Yuri Moskalenko complemented Viola Frymann's practical teaching content.

Osteopath Hamburg - Effective treatment for complaints
