"Total care for your overall well-being – that is Hans! I had a very stressful desk job and three monitors to divide my attention to. This caused a constant straining on my neck and left shoulder. I tried pain relievers, heat, ice and stretching but nothing helped. This was impacting every area of my life. Due to the negative and poor results I had experienced in the past from so called “licensed therapists” I dragged my feet to get help. I had little to no hope. Until Hans. By the time I had my first visit with Hans I was in so much pain, I could barely turn my head. On my first visit he began treatment right away. I felt such relief. After a month of therapy with Hans all my pain was gone and I had full range of motion. Hans is very intuitive – he listens and asks questions and gave me tips to help change my bad patterns. I have never met someone I could actually say was brilliant until Hans. He has never stopped growing professionally – continually reading and studying to provide the best care and answers for his clients. Not only did he educate me and provide the healing I needed for my neck and shoulder but through sharing his wisdom and what he has learned he helped me make positive life changing decisions. What an inspiration he has been and always challenging himself physically encourages me to do the same so I can continue to do and be better!" Tualatin, OR.
"My body feels light since starting therapy. I feel confident and put back together again. If I was on the beach I would leave no foot prints that is how light I feel." West Lynn, OR.
"As a Physical Therapist myself and wanting to receive great care, I researched many clinicians before scheduling with Hans. Early on he demonstrated a clear expertise in skilled manual techniques . His diverse experiences and insight allowed for a holistic approach to treatment and he developed a comprehensive and effective treatment plan. Hans' dedication is obvious in his caring and attentive approach. Based on my positive experience and good results I would highly recommend Hans." Tualatin, OR.
Since experiencing a severe hamstring injury, I have been seeing Hans since March of this year for purposes of physical therapy. In that time he has provided me with a number of helpful running and physical therapy plans aimed at restoring my running ability. He also recommended many excercises to strengthen the injured area. Even though I am still on my way to complete recovery, I know I will be fully healed soon. If not for Hans, I would not have been able to run after my injury. Portland.
"Focus on the entire body. Hans helped me to overcome my hip injury by evaluating the true reason for my pain and struggles. He is a (remarkable) runner himself with lots of knowledge about running injuries and how to treat them. Also, he understands if your only desire is to get out there again! His advise helped me to build up strength and let me become a much better runner. The massage therapy is great to relax stressed muscles, and a stressed mind, too. Ready for the trails now ;) "King City, OR.
"Very knowledgeable! Knows how to move my arm/body to get to a troublesome area. Really focused on those difficult areas. Thanks again! My right arm really feels better already. Can’t wait to spend more time on my left next! Thanks for the tips about home care and stretches!" Portland
"I have been receiving deep tissue massage from Dr. Kroese for several weeks now. As a result of my visits, my muscles have relaxed considerably which has greatly reduced the neck pain I have endured for over 20 years. Thank you Dr. Kroese." Tualatin, OR.
"Hans, offers a combination of natural medicine and the knowledge and training of a Therapist. His professional history is impressive.
I am suffering from chronic back pain, therapy offered repetitious exercises and stretches, which was great for temporary relief. My visit to adriftpt left me feeling fabulous. I effects were much longer lasting. The space is clean, Hans dual therapy has been life changing and has me moving free once again. Definitely a great find." Sherwood - Tualatin, OR.
"If you want a relaxing massage, any licensed massage therapist will typically do a great job. However, if you want someone to address something specific, I strongly recommend you see Hans."
What distinguishes Hans from other massage therapists is that he is in fact a licensed physical therapist (with over 30 years experience at several hospitals in San Diego and Portland). While many massage therapists are well trained in their discipline, very few have the type of training that a licensed physical therapist has. He does massage therapy because he is passionate about it, and sees it as an opportunity to provide a more hands on type of therapy.
By seeing Hans, you will get something much more substantial than just a relaxing massage. He can not only provide you with the probable reason for a particular ache or pain you have, but also give you recommendations (stretching, exercises, etc.) to get to the root of the problem, and heal it. And all for the same price as a regular massage therapist. Highly recommended!" Lake Oswego, OR.
" I can't wait for my next session. I feel lighter and my mind is more uncluttered. " West Lynn, OR.
