Professional treatment, my love for the profession and my high level of experience are all guaranteed
In connection with the profession of physiotherapist and manual therapist, what could be achieved or tried with the love of the profession, humility and ambition so far, I have already done so — but I continue to train myself and follow the trends and even adjust them according to my potential. So I help my patients with the greatest efficiency day after day.
Throughout my career I have worked in the most renowned offices, and now I operate my own physiotherapist practice and employ my own therapists, who of course are personally trained and supervised by me during our work.
To date, I have become acquainted with all available methods of manual therapy. As soon as the MSc training became available, I immediately completed it and developed my own product — in fact, I wrote my thesis from it!
I am a supporter of enthusiastic commitment to innovations and medicine
I have worked both as an employee and in my own private practice, but I also gained a lot of valuable experience during my work at the hospital. In the hospital I developed the concept of heart transplantees’ therapy and published it in the form of a detailed study.
In both the physiotherapist and manual therapist profession, I put emphasis on the importance of communication. I have been actively blogging for more than 10 years, so that it becomes clear to the wider public what a physiotherapist is and what the role of a manual therapist is, and what problems we can handle properly at home, and what needs professional assistance.
In the Hungarian environment, I was one of the first to widely propagate the importance of mobilization and stretching in addition to stabilization. I continue to try to feel the trends well with my incessant interest in the profession. By the time Jaw Manual Therapy had become widely known, I had already completed almost all available domestic and international courses to provide my patients with the best possible treatment methods. Since 2020, I have been working with several major dental clinics in close cooperation with oral surgeons and periodontologists.
With my Motion Clinic we prove day by day in practice
Trying new things is one thing, but making them successful is a whole new challenge, which requires not only interest and talent, but real perseverance.
Although more people try to hire therapists, hiring and training them in the long term is a huge professional test. Although even the creation of a successful clinic is not an easy task, but the real art starts with the second office. I decided to develop when almost everyone else had already downgraded or closed down. During the COVID pandemic, I received continuous stream of patients with the Movement Clinic as a medical facility, and with my qualified team I was already working on the opening of the second clinic.
I have created a franchise system of the Movement Clinic, through which I teach my self-developed methods to my partners and therapists. My goal is to provide patients with the best possible treatment, be it joint complaints, posture problems or rehabilitation after a sports injury.
You’re in the best hands with us!
To this day, the therapists of the Movement Clinic are working under my close professional supervision, and again the only one of the first physiotherapist expert’s report introduced in the profession — which all our patients receive — can always be issued with my own approval. Thus a personalized and carefully supervised therapy is provided to all my patients.

My professional experience
“I graduated from Semmelweis University as a physiotherapist in 2006. After that, I became a physiotherapist at the Gottsegen György National Institute of Cardiology. During my work at the institute I developed physiotherapy for heart transplantees and its protocol. In September 2010, I presented on the topic at the physiotherapist congress, and later I published it in an article.
In 2008, I participated in manual therapy training accredited by Semmelweis University and successfully passed the examination as a manual therapist. Later, I also worked as a physiotherapist and manual therapist at the David Spine Clinic. I combine my broad-spectrum manual therapy experience effectively in curing musculoskeletal disorders. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) manual therapy is also included in my profiles.
I received Master Degree at the University of Pécs in Physiotherapy in 2017. In addition, I conducted my scientific research on StrapTherapy at the University of Pécs. I am currently the leading professional physiotherapist at the Movement Clinic.”
What kind of perspective characterizes my work?
Throughout my career choices I was motivated by the science of healing and the love of movement. For me, the best professional result is the recovered patients, but scientific research and education are also part of my profession. My goal is the preventive medicine and to “treat” health, and that exercise therapy and manual therapy should finally be part of everyday health preservation. Based on my experience, it is much easier to prevent trouble than to cure the a developed pathology. I feel lucky because every therapy is a challenge for me.
I say, “No two patients are the same, and no two diseases are the same.”
I have a high level of expertise in spinal medicine and sports rehabilitation, based on which I developed the Motion Pyramid® treatment concept and the StrapTherapy motion program which focuses on mobility and stretching. Currently, together with my father, we are working on the development of a modern spinal therapy device called PhysioBarrel.

Steps of the Motion Pyramid® Treatment Concept:
Level up in recovery!
LEVEL 1. — Regardless of the type of complaint, our patients first come to us for a health check, where
With the help of manual therapy, we identify in which tissue structure, joint the pain originates in order to find the root of the problem. We work on the correction of ligaments, joints, muscles and fascia with scientifically based methods, as our therapists come to us with a Hungarian college/university degree, and then they all undergo a thorough training, during which we introduce them to our concept of healing.
Relief of pain, improvement of circulation is the primary goal. The regeneration of tissue structures is quickly triggered, using the connective tissue manual therapy treatments and physiotherapy this can be accelerated.
At this level, the symptoms subside after a few sessions even completely disappear. However, this is only the beginning of the road. It is at this time that treatment should be continued for the result to be lasting. International researches also support what we have also experienced, that at this level there is the greatest drop out of therapy, thus creating the basis for recurrence of symptoms. Many people make the mistake of not continuing — and most of the time the therapist doesn’t emphasize it enough or firmly enough — even though results can be achieved from this point. If only the goal was to eliminate the symptom, some painkillers would often do since the inflammation goes away. But we need more than that. Manual therapy achieves this and even prepares the body so that development can be achieved by bringing the joint to the correct position. But for this it is to be continued. The Motion Pyramid® concept, in line with international researches, prescribes 12 sessions to complete the first level with 2 therapies per week. This is roughly manual therapy and physiotherapy in equal ratio, often in combination with physiotherapy treatments (US, shock wave, kinesio-tape,…).
LEVEL 2. — they participate in a survey and evaluation developed for Rita Szentiványi’s Motion Pyramid®, where
With pain, you can not move. After relieving the pain, however, proper joint mobility, the right range of motion, flexibility, adequate flexibility of muscles, nerves and connective tissues can be achieved. Properly strengthening can only be done in full range of motion and correct posture.
LEVEL 3. — we carry out standardized manual and functional orthopaedic tests in accordance with the rules of evidence-based medicine and the latest scientific findings,
The joint mobility achieved by manual therapy, the optimal contact of the articular surfaces can be maintained with the stabilizing functions of the muscles. Under the influence of exercise therapy, deep muscles that run around the joints and vertebrae can be strengthened.
The next step (also 12 sessions) is completely about the patient’s activity, since this time we can continue joint mobilization and stabilization typically with mild symptoms or completely asymptomatic.
LEVEL 4. — and based on symptoms and test results, place your status at the appropriate level of the Motion Pyramid®, and
Functional exercises, complex muscle strengthenings, agility exercises and plyometric exercises. At this level, we are already expect a quick reaction from the joints and muscles. Here the development of muscle tone is already impressive. Muscle balance is restored, posture improves.
Physiotherapists working at our clinic are university-graduated professionals. They have a high level of expertise in spinal medicine and sports rehabilitation. They keep on developing their manual therapy experience through continuous training.
