Manon Gygax:

"The human body is fantastic. It is a perfect creation and makes life possible. It is our duty to take care of it. In the busy routine of every day it has to suffer many things and when the years pass by it will make us aware of a couple of deficits. It is important to listen to this message. For me it is fascinating to study all these correlations, to find out the causes for discomforts and pain and to search for solutions and – in many cases – to help the patients.

That is why I love my job every day again. In Sardinia, at Mandra Edera, this very special place, emotions are set free. We realize how important it is, to be healthy and to stay healthy. The silence and quietness, which we enjoy there, will help us to let the daily routine behind us and to turn home strong, encouraged and invigorated.
