Your road to recovery

One week of intensive treatment

Step 1

The Functional Neurological Examination (FNE)

You tell us about your complaints. We will ask you the necessary questions about this and do a complete Neurological Examination. We determine if you are a suitable candidate for our treatment.

Step 2

Advanced Machine Testing (quantification)

Based on Step 1, we determine what tests are necessary to quantify the underlying cause of the symptoms. To do this, we use a range of computer-controlled equipment.

Step 3

Rehabilitation week (in 5 days)

We address the problems. Through an individual program specifically tailored to your problems, we bring back function during an intensive week of treatment.

Step 4


After the 5-day intensive treatment week, we will give you homework assignments. These are exercises that further promote your recovery. We are happy to keep an eye on these developments with you.

Where do we see improvement in general:

Based on scientific clinical studies and findings, our programme stimulates and activates the parts of the brain directly involved in symptoms so that cognitive functions improve. We ensure that the improvements are lasting.

Fatigue complaints
Processing stimuli (light, sound, visual)
Control over thoughts and body
Coordination of body in space understanding and orientation
Cognitive functions
Timing and responsiveness
