MINETTE SCHNEIDER BIOKINETIKUS TEAM

Our practice consists of four registered Biokineticists, one Biokineticist Intern and an administrative lady.

We are a hard-working team that carries out our passion through our work as Biokineticists.  We are treating numerous different conditions and people with their own challenges.  That is why we know we cannot treat two people exactly the same.  Therefore you can be assured that at Minette Schneider Biokineticist each patient’s condition will be treated individually.

The practise was established in August 2007 at the premises of Hoërskool Oosterland.  A year after the practise was opened we contracted Wellness World to equip the school with a gym facility that we still use today in our final phase rehabilitation.

Hoërskool Oosterland scholars are also using the gym facility to build athletic performance.

During 2010 we further expanded the practise with the introduction of a heated pool facility to further enhance our rehabilitation through our specialised hydrotherapy techniques.
