Roel completed his studies in 1999 at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, following his studies he started his first profession as physiotherapist at a large sport center in Limburg, here he also worked as a fitness instructor during his degree. After having worked a year in Germany he returned to Amsterdam and started his job in a private practice in Buitenveldert. In a little over eight years that he has been working, he has completed his degrees in manual therapy and applied physiotherapy. Roel is also an internship supervisor for the degree manual therapy Maitland. In 2009 Roel found a new challenge at a practice in the Pijp. Here, in addition to working a fulltime job he specialized further with a variety of courses and degrees, including the Mckenzie – and Mulligantherapy. Now you can also refer to Roel for medical taping and treatments for tailbone and coccyx complaints.
Next to his degrees Roel has travelled a lot. He has been to diverse countries, including Nepal, India, Peru and Colombia where he volunteered as physiotherapist. Through the years his interest enhanced for the mechanical aspect of bodily complaints. Therefore he decided to deepen his knowledge in different forms of therapy , mainly meditation.
