Dr. med. Kai Gutzeit
Private Practice for Integrative Medicine
Therapist for Rational Emotive & Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy (RE&CBT)
Consultations by appointment
My primary philosophy is to work together with the client to develop a treatment plan that is specifically based on the client’s current situation and constitution.
On one hand, this means the treatment subjects the client in a holistically orientated way and is not only focused on a symptom, which is aimed to be alleviated.
On the other hand, the treatment-approach is grounded in scientific, evidence-based methods of conventional western medicine and integrates Eastern-philosophy-based methods such as Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda to create a complete integrative approach.
Furthermore, health is not just seen as superficial wellbeing or as the absence of disease, but as a fluid state of balance in body and mind. The 5 factors: nutrition, physical activity, regeneration, a healthy, rational mindset and emotionality are key elements influencing this. The course of therapy will establish healthy patterns in these areas.

The fascia is the 3-dimensional network of soft tissue, which wraps the body as a whole as well as dividing it into the smallest subunits. It functionally connects and stabilzes the whole body from head to toe, from directly under your skin to deep inside.
Not only does it include tissuelayers like septi, muscle sheaths, articulary capsules, organ sheaths and connective structures, but also the denser structures like ligaments and tendons as well as softer and thinner connective tissue like the superficial fascia layer and the smallest subdivisions of the endomysium which wraps every muscle.
Fascia is instrumental in supporting full body health and well being.
Even simple everyday situations as long periods of sitting, stress, as well as immobilisation, one-sided weightbearing or trauma can all cause restrictions, adhesions, desiccations, entanglements and therefore disfunction in the fascia.
Working together with the client I use an active, manual-therapeutic treatment of the musculoskeletal and fascial apparatus to induce a re-mobilisation, regeneration and recovery of the fascia, thereby relieving pain and other symptoms.
The costs of treatment are calculated according to the medical fee schedule of German doctors – Gebührenordnung für Ärzte (GOÄ). If you are privately insured you can resitute the costs from your health-insurance. Compulsory insured (Gesetzliche Krankenkasse) will have to cover the costs themselves.
