The world’s smallest gym? Or just a medical instrument…
Following a bad whiplash injury, Mattias Bogefors picked up the harmonica. With the support of his physiotherapists, he discovered that playing the harmonica had many similarities with the gentle and subtle exercises he was already doing under medical supervision. The harmonica has helped Mattias to find his way back into life, which is why he calls it "the world’s smallest gym" or "just a medical instrument".
For over 20 years now, he has been sharing his experience by way of a specially developed concept, with private clients, patient organizations and hospitals in Sweden and the Netherlands, thus helping struggling people deal with a wide variety of health issues, such as respiratory diseases and medical conditions affecting the neck, jaw and tongue. The deep breathing is also beneficial for coping with pain and anxiety. Thanks to Mattias' efforts, people have been able to sustainably improve their quality of life as a result, as well as having fun!
