Bodies Never Lie

Interactive lecture on request


The Body Never Lies. It was one of the catchphrases of Haptonomist Ted Troost. He treated a huge number of Top athletes in the 1980s from soccer players to ice skaters. He was the one who first inspired Zefanja about the human body. He could tell from people’s bodies that there were complaints or traumas suffered. And that’s what Zefanja wanted too! Years later, she developed this for horses so that lamenesses and problems could be detected early.
