Physiotherapist/certified massage therapist looking for employment

Hello all,

I am a Finnish physiotherapist/certified massage therapist looking for employment in Switzerland. They say that physios are in short supply and there are lots of jobs to be found. But... there is a problem. I would need to be recognized by the Swiss Red Cross as a physio before I can work as one. One of the conditions is a German language proficiency and that's not going to work just yet. I am studying German but I have a feeling that it will take a very long time to reach a high enough level.

Living in a German speaking environment would definitely boost my language learning speed. For that reason I have started to look for other opportunities, mainly in massage therapy. Does anyone know more about the subject, for example is there a governing body for massage therapists and do I have to be recognized as one? Is there any chances to find a massage therapy job where I could work with English for starters?

Hi there,

Not actively as I am currently employed. I also have been out of actual clinical work for a long time so I think I have already 'lost the touch'. Haven't been studying German either lately, I guess I kind of lost my hope regarding Switzerland

What did you have in mind?

Thanks, I have to keep it in mind.

Can you tell me the name of the clinic, or where it is situated?

Yes It's near Basel. An outpatient clinic situated within a rehabilitation hotel.
About 70% outpatients with a mix of everything. 30% In patients - mainly Orthopaedic post op.
It's called: Bad Ramsach Kurhotel.Läufelfingen.CH-4448
The Physiotherapist in charge could happily answer any further questions.
