We specialize in treatment of i.e. lumbago, torticollis/wryneck, sciatica, postoperative impairment, and sports injuries. We have extensive experience in treating both top athletes and ‘ordinary’ exercisers.


We work with conflict resolution, couple and relationship difficulties [or therapy], anxiety, phobias, eating disorders, weight loss, mental training, motivational training, etc., individually or in groups. For work-related conflicts there is often a lot to be gained by bringing in an independent expert.


Alexandra and Stan both have their roots in the Netherlands. In 1988 they opened up a private clinicat Lilla Sveagatan in Tranås for physiotherapy, sports injuries and Osteopathic Manual Therapy: Tranås Medicinska Träningsinstitutet (Medical Training Institute). Among physiotherapist we they were pioneers when it came to combining hands-on treatment with active supervised training.


In 1992, they moved to larger premises on Tingsvägen in Tranås and changed the name of the business to "Body & Mind Sweden AB". In 2009, they acquired Kongsbacken in order to realize their ideas about conferences, accommodation, training and rehabilitation. At that point they also moved their clinic to Kongsbacken.
