German Physiotherapist, Author, Lecturer

About Didier Hartmann

On the picture above:

Didier and Dr. Müller-Wohlfahrt (FC Bayern Munich’s orthopedic team doctor from 1977 to today and German national soccer team doctor from 1995 to 2018) togehter with Freddy Binder (physical therapist – always on Müller-Wohlfahrt’s side).

As a professional physiotherapist Didier has worked in Germany (Munich) for about 20 years. Didier was also a lecturer at therapeutic training institutes in Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Portugal.
He published three books (two of them in English) and several online courses on health.

Didier currently lives in Kobe, Japan with his Japanese wife and two children.
As a therapist and trainer he has participated in numerous international trainings and conferences.


At the Wittlinger Therapy Center in Austria, Didier Hartmann learned lymphatic drainage from Professor Wittlinger and her family. And she learned it directly from the inventor Dr. Vodder!!

Didier´s work is highly inspired by the work of Tom Myers (Anatomy Trains – Myofascial Meridians) and modern training approaches as taught by Ido Portal, Frank Forencich, Fighting Monkey, Tom Weksler, and many more. But as a base Didier is still deeply routed into buddhist martial arts as Kung Fu and TaiChi which he studied more than 10 years with Ajahn Lao Vongvilay. Didier`s interest in body and mind originated from japanese Zen literature, which is always a great source of inspiration to him.








ディディエの技術は、トム・マイヤーズ(Anatomy Trains – Myofascial Meridians)のワークや、イド・ポータル、フランク・フォレンシック、ファイティング・モンキー、トム・ウェクスラーなどが教える現代的なトレーニング・アプローチに強くインスパイアされている。しかし、ディディエのベースにはカンフーや太極拳といった仏教武術が深く根付いており、アジャーン・ラオ・ヴォンヴィライに10年以上師事している。ディディエの身体と心に対する興味は、日本の禅文学に端を発しており、それは常に彼のインスピレーションの大きな源となっている。

Pre-Marathon Preparation: Before the big day, we can work with you to identify areas of tension and tightness in your muscles. Through specialized massage techniques, we can release these knots and improve your flexibility, ensuring your body is in its best condition for the race. With a pre-marathon massage, you’ll feel lighter, more relaxed, and ready to tackle the challenge ahead.

Post-Race Recovery: Completing a marathon is a remarkable achievement, but it can leave your muscles sore and fatigued. Our post-race or post training massage is designed to alleviate this discomfort. By reducing muscle inflammation and promoting blood circulation, we can help you recover more quickly, so you can get back to training or simply enjoy.

Injury Prevention: Marathon training can be physically demanding and sometimes lead to injuries. We can work closely with you to address potential trouble spots and prevent injuries before they occur. Through regular massage sessions, we can keep your muscles and connective tissues in optimal condition, reducing the risk of injuries that could derail your marathon goals.

Stress Relief and Relaxation: Running a marathon is not just about physical preparation; mental resilience is crucial too. Massage therapy is not only about muscle manipulation but also about promoting relaxation and reducing stress. A relaxed mind can translate into better focus and performance on race day. We are dedicated to create a peaceful and calming atmosphere during our sessions to help you achieve that mental clarity and tranquility.

Ongoing Support: Our commitment to your marathon journey doesn’t end with a single session. We will be there for you every step of the way, providing guidance, support, and expert advice to help you achieve your running goals. Together, we’ll work towards a healthier, happier, and more successful running experience.
