Marion Schneider. Fotografie von Linda Troeller (

Since 1983, Marion Schneider has been active in the healthcare industry, focusing mainly on human health and how it can be influenced by therapy. The effects of water, warmth, light, architecture, as well as of art and music on the healing process is at the core of her endeavors. She has contributed significantly to the introduction of balneophoto therapy (Tomesa therapy), that is, the effect of the simultaneous application of water and light on human health, as well as Liquid Sound – bathing in lights and music. Since 1992, she has been dealing with focal short-time therapies – in particular with NLP and constellation works – as they can play a significant role in the rehabilitation process. Her personal goal is to enable preventative and rehabilitative therapies to assume a key role in medicine and politics, as this is not only socially but also economically meaningful and necessary. This is the mission of her daily work, and to this end, she also publishes articles and lectures, and makes contributions to conferences and congresses.

Born on December 31st, 1956, she studied History, German Language and Literature, and Ethnology in Marburg and Freiburg, Germany. From 1978 until 1979, she worked as a language teacher in Halifax/England.
