Aleksandra Ivančić, MD spec. was born on 6th November 1974 in Novi Sad. She graduated from the Medical faculty in Novi Sad in 2001, and completed her specialization in physical medicine and rehabilitation in 2005.

Immediately after completing her formal medical training, she becomes the mother of a prematurely born child. Within the first twenty days of his life, he is diagnosed with leukomalacia in the parietooccipital part of brain. From that moment on, together with her husband Goran, she starts fighting wholeheartedly for every nerve cell in his little head.

After a year and a half of hour-long daily training sessions using the Vojta and Bobath methods, she realizes that physical medicine in her country is very limited in the field of infantile cerebral palsy. Wishing to find the best possible treatment for her child, she goes beyond Serbian borders where she learns about some excellent methods and meets the best therapists. In addition to theoretical and practical knowledge, they gave her hope and persuaded her to believe  she would eventually put her child on his feet despite his great brain and sight damage.

With a lot of faith, strength and all the accumulated knowledge, she establishes the ‘Centre for the Development of Human Potential’ in 2012, thus setting new standards in the treatment of infantile cerebral palsy in our region.
The Centre for the Development of Human Potential offers a unique intensive program for the rehabilitation of children suffering from cerebral palsy. We aim at boosting their independence and, eventually, helping them to start walking by themselves. The programme is based on the essential principles of Sports medicine – supercompensation and periodization.




In February and May 2009, she attends the first and second seminars for parents in Copenhagen, and in September the third one in Austria. She highly respects this method and has been applying the ABR techniques on her child to this day. She firmly believes that thanks to this very technique her child hasn’t got a single contracture or deformity on his body, despite the great brain damage, while his body structure has become much stronger.

Despite the great effectiveness of the ABR theory, she intuitively senses that her son needs an even stronger and more efficient stimulant. In September 2011, she is on the lookout for something which would make her child’s progress even faster:



In Zurich (Switzerland), Vuk undergoes a week-long treatment session conducted by Nancy Aberle, based on this method. Aleksandra later attends the Anat Banniel method seminar in Berlin (Germany), where she herself has a chance to feel the movements and do the exercises that Mrs Aberle performed on Vuk in Switzerland. This experience has been invaluable for her future work with Vuk and other children suffering from the same problem.







In the Czech town of Pribran, she attends the TheraSuit Seminar conducted by Izabela Koscielny. She becomes a licensed TheraSuit therapist, and strongly believes that she has finally found the right tools to put her child on his feet.

She stays at the TheraSuit centre in the American city of Michigan in May 2012, where she gains invaluable experience and determination necessary for her future work. She completes the Advanced TheraSuit training course, during which she becomes interested in primitive reflexes, as she realizes that they are the key to unlocking the damaged brain.


MFR seminar

In September 2012 in Belgrade, she attends a seminar in the field of Myofascial Release Techniques - MFR conducted by Kristina Radović Marić (a specialist of clinical therapy in the field of craniosacral treatment and myofascial release techniques). She widenes her knowledge and practical experience in the field of fascias.

2012 2013 2014



In September 2012, in the town of Biddinghuizen (the Netherlands), she attends these two training courses and finally gets the answer she was looking for to the following question: what is the fastest and most efficient way of integrating primitive reflexes and consequently enhancing treatment effects in  CP children?
