Massage and Fascia-therapy
Frank-André Berkel practices the pain therapy according to Liebscher and Bracht, which is recognized and highly regarded in the professional world. He has also always mastered a variety of different techniques such as LomiLomi, Swedish, Thai, Physio and osteopressure, which he uses in his treatments.
With the help of his more than three decades of experience and well-founded training in yoga, thai chi and reiki, Frank-André succeeds in incorporating valuable energy work and the breathing techniques learned specifically in his program into the treatment.
Golden 8 (Level 1)
The “Golden 8” developed by Frank-André Berkel is made up of components from yoga, Pilates, Thai Chi and classical physiotherapy. Similar to a “sun salutation” in yoga, eight exercises form a sequential sequence of isometric exercises (held positions) that build on one another and that – once learned – become your daily training – because only a rolling stone does not gather moss!
With the help of the breathing techniques learned in this module, your head and, subsequently, your body can relax.
Deep Yoga (level 3-4)
Have you been practicing yoga for a long time or even professionally and would like to work intensively on your technique? With the help of Frank André you will experience a different, impressive quality in the execution of the powerful interplay of statics and dynamics of your body. You will develop your personal yoga and learn to use it permanently and effectively for the development of your body and mind. Deep Yoga is not a simple retreat for advanced practitioners, but the beginning of a path to a new, intense body experience.
Faster weight loss, muscle building, more elasticity, higher resilience and increased performance – also for you – no matter what age group you belong to. Frank-André Berkel took up the “functional training” training concept, which was initially developed by sports scientists for competitive sports, and adapted it to the needs and requirements of his customers on a physiotherapeutic basis. Frank-André Berkel’s exclusive functional training consists of five components:
Strength upper body
Strength lower body
Plyometry (jumping & landing).
With the help of Frank-André’s training, you will achieve a healthy body with healthy muscles and healthy connective tissue. In this way, your body becomes firm and elastic at the same time – flexible like bamboo and tear-resistant like a pulling rope.
That’s what my customers say
He did a fantastic job for us.
“It is very difficult to find a professional who has the experience and training as a fitness trainer, yoga teacher and masseur that superyacht guests and owners expect. Frank Berkel met all of these criteria and did a fantastic job for us.
Please recommend him to one of the yachts you manage and give the captains my contact details if a reference check is required. “
“Frank introduced me to yoga a year ago. Compared to other yoga trainers, he impresses with his knowledge of anatonmy, physiology and physiotherapy. He guides each student individually within the scope of his possibilities and any previous illnesses. In my opinion, his way of leading with words is well above average and gives me a new quality of yoga that I have not experienced with other trainers. Hence five stars from me and both thumbs up! “
“I can recommend Frank’s training to anyone who wants to do something good for themselves and their body. The back pain from sitting at the computer all the time has been blown away and it is great fun to work with Frank. Highly recommended because technically sound, always nice and very goal-oriented. Full points!”
“I would give even more stars, tried out a few trainers and physiotherapists on the island and finally found the right expertise in Frank. You can do more harm than good with the wrong exercises or the wrong posture and so he corrects a lot and has so many exercises in his luggage that it never gets boring. Pure motivation. My wife had a massage and was just as enthusiastic. Absolute recommendation! “
“Magic hands, a good start! I’ve lived all over the world, had massages from some of the best, but I don’t think anyone can beat Frank-André! Whether it is a relaxation massage or a specific area for a therapy massage. He changed the lives of many of my friends. Frank is my recommendation! “
„Frank-André ist der Erste von bestimmt hundert Personal Trainern, mit denen ich zusammengearbeitet habe, der genau sehen kann, was ich brauche“
Positive: communication, professionalism, quality
“A year ago I went to Frank to do yoga for the first time. That was great. He explains everything great and corrects you when something is not done as it should be. That helped me alot. The massage is awesome. He is very empathetic. Then he explains which exercises would be good for what. Just awesome. That’s why I’m still there “
“As an experienced yoga teacher, I learned more in one hour with Frank-Andre than in any other further training. His knowledge of the body and his physiotherapy experience make his work unique! “
Buenos días, he tenido una fantástica experiencia con el señor Berkel. Ya q gracias a sus conocimientos profesionales he podido evitar una OP inesesaria, de mis tendones en mi hombro derecho. Yo resido en Ibiza y práctico Jiu jitsu brasileño al nivel personal, entreno 4 días por semana. Desde hace más de 9 años. Mi hombro tenia la tendencia en salirse de su sitio, en cuando el codo sobrepasaba la altura del hombro. Una limitación y debilidad en este deporte. Los médicos me suguieron una OP y entrenar más intensamente los grupos musculares en este hombro, para darle más estabilidad. Tras pasar 14 días en Mallorca, contacte previamente con Frank y me ha preparado un entrenamiento personalizado. Frank me ha examinado antes el hombro y la zona. Se ha dado cuenta, q tras los daños mi cuerpo produjo una especie de espasmo, para proteger la zona y los músculos del pecho sustituiron la funcciona del músculo de rotación interna. Este músculo no estaba desarrollado y por más q yo entrenará los músculos del hombro, nunca podría tener una estabilidad. Frank se consentro en crear métodos de entrenamiento específicos, q yo he podido hacer hasta el dia de hoy. Hace más de un año y medio desde q he tenido la última vez molestias tras un entreno duro de Jui Jitsu!! Agradezco enormemente y respecto el trabajo q Frank a realizado con migo. Gracias a el, tengo libertad de movimiento y fuerza en mi hombro en todas las luchas, sea entrenos o competiciones. Un saludo.
