Ralf Dornieden is a registered osteopath in Nova Scotia and Switzerland, offering osteopathic treatment for all ages (newborn, toddler, youth, adults).
Ralf graduated in 1997 as a physiotherapist in Germany and moved right away to Switzerland. There he worked in various clinics and rehabilitation centers before opening his own clinic in 2005 with his wife Meike, also a physiotherapist and osteopath. Ralf studied sport science in Germany and earned his Bachelor of Arts in 2003. Osteopathy is Ralf`s passion. After graduating in 2006 he earned his Master of Science in 2009 in Vienna, Austria. Since 2014 Ralf is completing his Professional Doctorate Program at the British School of Osteopathy in London/UK.
During his career, he and his wife built up an osteopathic newborn check up in a Swiss hospital, where they treated newborns. As an osteopath, he supported a handball premier league as well as various athletes.
In 2013 Ralf and his wife Meike moved with their three children to Wolfville. Ralf worked for a year with Sarah Hayes in Kingsport at that time. After returning to Switzerland, they missed Nova Scotia dearly and decided to come back and work with Sally Shaw in her beautiful Middleton clinic.
Ralf is very experienced and well educated. He chooses different approaches based on individuality to reach the best outcome for his patients.
