Only better…
Read more about Our integrated approach here

The spot where your problem/pain is, is just the tip of the iceberg; the end result of compensation over time. So just looking at and treating the spot of pain, is not going to solve your problem.

You’ve probably had several therapists doing that.

It’s time for something better!

By thinking and looking beyond regular physical therapy, your problem can be resolved quickly and permanently.

Most problems are out of treatment within 6 sessions.

Why Art of Physio as your physiotherapist in Amsterdam?

If you’ve seen other therapists without success, it’s time to try our approach.

We believe in the power of personal relationships. We take the time to listen to you to get to know not only your complaint, but more importantly, you.

What you get with us:


  • Personal approach. N=1. Although every body has pretty much the same building blocks, every injury is different. By finding out exactly where your injury is coming from and what other systems are affecting it, we can create a personalized plan to get you back to where you want to be.


  • A clear and understandable plan. No difficult words. You have to understand what we are doing, otherwise it won’t work.


  • Results. Often faster than you think. The treatment techniques we use are unique in the Netherlands and work very well. Our therapists can regularly be found abroad to learn to help you better.


Not satisfied after your intake? Then you just get your money back.

Our integral approach as physiotherapist Amsterdam


The Art of Physio begins at the first appointment. We take the time to get to know not only your injury, but more importantly, get to know you. 

Most physiotherapists only look at the musculoskeletal system (i.e. muscles, joints etc.). Although acute injuries often find their cause in that system, long-term injuries are rarely just in the musculoskeletal system.

Besides the movement of bones and muscles, we look for the relationships and connections with other systems that are active in your body. Think about your lifestyle, breathing, digestion, immune system, sleep, stress and mindset.

By thinking and looking beyond standard physical therapy, relationships are established more quickly and the solution to your problem is often closer than you think.

What others are saying

Don’t believe our word for it! We have a solid 5 star rating based on over 60 reviews.

‘ Can’t recommend highly enough. Flexible appointments, swift diagnosis, clear explanation of the root cause of problems with a directed treatment plan. Really appreciated the videos with demonstration of the exercises as easy forget some of the details a couple of days after the appointment. Pieter is also very attentive at following up on your progress in between appointments. ‘


‘Art of Physio has helped me significantly in the last few years with persistent neck and shoulder pain, as well as most recently flexibility and body awareness. He really gets it, and he is the physio I recommend to everyone I know, Dutch or English speaking, in and around Amsterdam. He gives positive encouragement, asks the right questions, and motivates you to look after your body better. No-one works harder than Pieter to constantly add to his skillset and knowledge, so he can better treat his clients! ’


‘If you are looking for a professional and experienced physio, you should definitely be with Pieter. Pieter will put you at ease and will not only make sure that the pain is reduced quickly in the short term, but also that the underlying cause is actually addressed. Where most physio’s only treat symptoms, Pieter makes sure you will benefit from the treatment(s) in the long run. After months of walking with neck/back pain, it finally feels good again and I can move pain free. Real winner!’


‘Only positive experience with Art of Physio and especially Pieter! He is helping me to get through the consequences of the knee injury and also to stay positive no matter what. He always gives the detailed explanation of what exactly he’s doing and how it affects my body. After just a few sessions I could feel the results. Highly recommended!’
