About Steffen Messerschmidt
Steffen has an extensive medical background with more than 30 years of clinical experience working in Europe, North Africa, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Steffen originally trained in conventional medicine in the USA and went on to specialise in holistic sports medicine, orthopaedics and rehabilitation. Following this, he studied natural medicine at the German Paracelsus College, becoming what is known as a naturopathic physician.
Further to this, he undertook studies in nutrition and orthomolecular medicine under Prof. Dr. Bram van Dam at the AEP Academy in Spain along with studies at the University of Lisbon, obtaining a degree in nutrition and orthomolecular medicine. For a period of five years, he worked with and assisted Prof. Dr. Bram van Dam, studying the field of psycho-neuro immunology and epigenetics.
For many years, Steffen ran a private practice and lectured internationally for the European Paracelsus College and other universities in natural medicine, muscular-skeletal therapy, nutritional medicine and injection therapy (including German Neural Therapy, biomesotherapy, intra-muscular vitamin injections and dry needling).
Steffen’s main focus today is still muscular-skeletal therapy and general (non-medical) practice addressing a wide range of health complaints.
Through studies over the past decade with Universal Medicine, he has developed a strong understanding and appreciation of the place the Universal Medicine Therapies occupy alongside medicine. This combination of conventional, natural and complementary modalities has become the foundation from which he now applies the vast knowledge and experience he has gathered.
Coming from a sports medicine background treating trauma and injuries, Steffen has always looked for more holistic and gentle ways to support the body to recover, without invasive manipulation and harsh manual therapies.
Today Steffen practices a mode of muscular skeletal therapy that helps the body to gently re-align. It is non invasive, painless, non-manipulative and supports any acute or chronic muscle, spinal, joint problem or pain.

I began seeing Steffen for sessions to address chronic and severe neck pain and headaches several years ago. By the time I arrived in Steffen’s clinic I had already tried just about everything else and had spent many thousands of dollars on chiropractic, physiotherapy and osteopathy treatments yet my condition remained largely unchanged.
I have always had neck and lower back problems ever since I had a car accident in Kenya with a broken neck and whiplash over 30 years ago when I was in my early 20’s and just married.
