In addition to working as a physiotherapist and as an osteopath, Helmut also works as a sports trainer in the children's and youth sector as well as an athletic trainer for the professionals in football and basketball.
Margit Halbfurter, MSc D.O. - Cashier
Margit Halbfurter is Osteopath (WSO) and Pediatric Osteopath (OZK). She lives and works in Villach. She completed her training at the WSO in 2015 with a master's degree. In the master's thesis, she dealt with the topic 'leaky gut', which she is still very interested and accompanied. Margit teaches at the WSO as an assistant and tutor. It is her great concern to work for the recognition of osteopathy as a profession in Austria, to secure the high level of education.
Carina Ossberger, MSc D.O. - Secretary
Carina Ossberger works in two practices in Vienna (18th and 19th district). After completing basic training at the IAO, she completed her master's degree at the FHG in Innsbruck. Her decision on becoming a Pediatric Osteopath brought her closer to her original goal, away from working as a kindergarten teacher to providing individual care for children. Since 2014, Carina teaches as a lecturer at the ILO.
