The treatment program is based on the Schroth Method of Germany. It was developed empirically by Katharina Schroth in Meissen, Germany in 1921.

Mrs. Schroth suffered from severe scoliosis herself and over time discovered certain corrective positions, movements and breathing techniques that greatly improved her condition and eventually benefited thousands of other scoliosis patients.

Later on the method was further refined by her daughter Christa Lehnert-Schroth, a physical therapist and by her grandson, Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiss, the former medical director of the Asklepios Katharina Schroth Clinic Sobernheim, Germany.

Today the method is represented in many countries and teaching centers have been established in Germany, Spain and the US.
