About me

Flavia Breu from Switzerland

I received my Bachelor of Science in Switzerland in 1997. For four years I worked in the well known Rehabilitation Hospital in Valens, Switzerland. I specialized in Rehabilitation, Neurology, Trigger Point Treatment and Hydrotherapy. From 2001 to 2002 I lived in South Korea and worked at the Rehabilitation Hospital in Ilsan, Seoul. Returning to Switzerland I started my specialization in Paediatrics (Neurology, Orthopedics and Hydrotherapy) in the Rehabilitation Hospital for Children in Affoltern am Albis. In 2005, I moved back to Asia and have been working in private clinics in Singapore and Bangkok before coming to Vietnam in February 2011.
I speak English, German and French.

My Therapy Offers

General physiotherapy for adults

I am experienced in assessing and treating  orthopaedic or any kind of muscular skeletal problems  (back pain, sportsinjuries, post surgery or trauma) and neurological conditions (stroke, brain damage, central or peripheral paresis) thanks to my advanced bobath training courses. 

VND 1,4 M per session of 45 min


Being a long distance runner myself my passion is to help athletes to prevent injuries during training or guide them during their rehabilitation after sportsrelated injuries or surgeries. I also do assessments and interventions to optimise your level of functional,occupational and sports specific fitness regardless of age and ability. 


Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a very effective deep relaxation technique to treat pain and referred pain caused by tight muscles (Myofascial Triggerpoints) with acupuncture needles.

Kinesio Taping

Both classic and fingerprint tape is now available in my clinic. Kinesiotape is more than traditional rigid tape which increases stability in a loose joint. Through its special ability to stretch and curl back it has a deep effect on muscle fibers, fascia and the lymphatic system. Depending on the technique in which it is applied it supports muscle function or it helps muscles to relax and is highly effective in reducing bruises or swellings.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy is the use of sound waves to treat musculoskeletal problems like acute pain, inflammation or swelling from injuries (sprains, tendinitis, bursitis) via an increase in local blood flow. The application is very gentle and  therefore ideal for acute pain treatment. The intensity or power density of the ultrasound can be adjusted on my machine depending on the desired effect.

Paediatric Physiotherapy

I am experienced in treating babies and children with neurological (Brain damage or Problems in central nervous system, Celebral Palsy, Down’s Syndrom) or orthopedic problems (e.g. flat or inverted feet, rehabilitation after surgery or trauma). I also do developmental assessments and early interventions for developmentally delayed babies. 

VND 1,4 M per session of 45 min


I offer the following classes on a regular basis. 

Pelvic Floor Training

It is recommended that all woman exercise their pelvic floor muscles everyday throughout life specially after pregnancy, child birth or during menopause.

In this course you will learn to strengthen your pelvic floor and core muscles to gain a better posture, a firm trunk and to prevent incontinence (involuntary loss of urine), low back pain or prolapse of the uterus or bladder.

VND 2,1 M for 6 sessions of 45 min
(min 4, max 6 participants)

no courses for the time being due to covid-19 crisis


Baby Swimming Classes

The babies learn from 4 month onwards to submerge confidently and swim under water. No floating or swimming aids are used. 

Jumping into water and being able to get back to the surface unaided not only helps children increase their self-esteem but also makes them safe around water and prevents drowning accidents.

VND 1,5 M for 6 sessions of 30 min
min 4, max 8 participants

Patient Testimonials

Here’s what my clients say:

Personally had successful treatment with dry-needling for muscle trigger points and fascia massage. Extremely professional and accommodating for appointments.

Emma Silva

I have been seeing Flavia for several years for a variety of sports injuries, and she has always had a fantastic intuition as to what the underlying problem is, and just how to fix it!

Mike Perkins

Flavia is a gifted physiotherapist. She is both very knowledgeable and intuitive, and always curious and invested in her patients‘ problems.

Carolina Cruz

I have been having physio with Flavia for a couple of months now and have already seen a huge improvement. I have what I thought was plantar fasciitis, but after just a handful of sessions, Flavia was able to identify other potential causes for the pain in my heel; something which my previous physiotherapists have not been able to do. Flavia is also a runner, so she completely understands what it is like to have a sporting injury and the frustration of not being able to run, so she also recommends other activity I can be doing, which is really helpful. Not only is Flavia an absolutely fantastic physiotherapist, but she is also a wonderfully friendly person and very easy to get along with. I actually look forward to my physio sessions; something I don’t say very often!

Ich selber bin seit mehreren Wochen bei Flavia in Behandlung und bin hochzufrieden mit dem Ergebnis. Ich hatte mir vor einigen Wochen einen Kreuzband- und Meniskusriss zugezogen, der eine OP erforderlich machte. Die Physiotherapie von Flavia übererfüllt meine Erwartungen. Flavia geht sehr gut auf den Patienten ein, ihre Behandlung ist sehr abwechslungsreich und ihre Tipps und Übungen helfen einem nachhaltig. Ich war schon bei einigen Physiotherapeutinnen und -therapeuten in Behandlung, in Vietnam und auch in Deutschland. Flavia ist die mit Abstand beste! (Translated by Google) I have been with Flavia for several weeks and am very happy with the result. I had a cruciate ligament and meniscal tear a few weeks ago that required surgery. The physiotherapy of Flavia exceeds my expectations. Flavia is very responsive to the patient, her treatment is very varied and her tips and exercises help a sustainable. I have been to some physiotherapists in treatment, in Vietnam and also in Germany. Flavia is by far the best!
