Apart from manual treatment the distinctive subjects are:
  • Free movement and training of body consciousness
  • Rehabilitation and preventive psychomotor therapy
  • Psychomotor therapy directed towards certain segments e. g. children, elderly, disabled or people with mental illnesses
An Erasmus exchange programme has a minimum duration of three months, but at VIA, most students are on exchange for a full semester. We also invite you for shorter stays as the programme is planned individually for each student.

We only accept exchange students who are already studying psychomotor therapy, and you need to have completed the first year of study at your home university.
