OEBK - Austrian Professional Association for Kinesiology


ÖBK - About us
A quality network

Dear Interested Person, Dear Colleagues!

The Austrian Professional Association for Kinesiology (ÖBK) sees itself as the representative of all kinesiologists and people interested in kinesiology in Austria. Through your membership, you support the work of the ÖBK, the dissemination to and acceptance of kinesiology by the public, as well as the idea of a community. Kinesiology is one of the most widespread working methods in the field of energetics in Austria.

A number of individuals founded the Austrian Professional Association for Kinesiology in 1995 in order to define structures and quality standards for our profession. In the years since then, we have succeeded in bringing our work to a high level of education, and have created a place for the energetic kinesiology practitioners in our society where the ideas, philosophies, and ethical demands of the methods are described – something which this valuable work needs.

The ÖBK has become a central place in Austria through which all those who are in or have completed kinesiology training can help shape the development of their own profession. The realization of a great idea needs the bundling of all positive forces in our country.

We invite you to support and participate in this force.
