The Sun reported that this is what Schumi wants, and his family is just making sure that his wish is being fulfilled. Sabine Kehm, the champ’s former manager, shared that the racer always yearned for a life away from the cameras, so this secrecy is what he wants.
"In general, the media have never reported on Michael and Corinna's private life," she said. "When he was in Switzerland, for example, it was clear he was a private individual.”

While it was not explained what this means, it is clear that he is trying to say that the therapy did a little help to improve Michael Schumacher’s health.
