Hanna Gustafsson

Physiotherapist

Hanna fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming a physiotherapist when, in 2010, she graduated from the University of Malardalen in Sweden, having spent a year of her course in Australia gaining first-hand of what being a physiotherapist really means and requires. The same year she moved to the UK and has since spent seven years building on her knowledge and experience by working in both the public and private sectors.

Hanna actually worked and trained in Australia with one of Dirk Laubscher's colleagues where she was trained up to be a specialised MedX rehab practitioner. Dirk who is the co-founder of Rejuv was also instrumental with Hanna choosing to study as a physio 10 years ago and has been one of her mentors every since.

Hanna now specialises in Musculoskeletal physiotherapy and is a firm believer of finding the root cause of pain before moving to treat and rehabilitate patients. She firmly believes that there is no one 'right' approach to treatment but that through listening, educating and guiding clients alongside therapy and realistic goal setting outcomes are both effective and sustainable.

Hanna has worked closely with many orthopaedic surgeons, gaining experience in treating post surgical back, knee and shoulder conditions. Hanna believes in an active approach to managing pain by incorporating self-management techniques into the treatment plan so that the pain does’t just go away but stays away.

Hanna is extremely engaged and easy going and loves the feeling of getting someone back to full fitness, pain free and most importantly back to living a happy and wholesome life!

Simoné Laubscher is a Nutritional Therapist and Life Coach and has been treating patients for over 20 years. After struggling with her own health issues relating to obesity (metabolic, adrenal, blood sugar and eating disorders) and treating herself successfully 15-20 years ago, after graduating from University, Simoné is very passionate about setting both adults and children free of such debilitating conditions.

Simoné specialises in obesity, long term weight loss, metabolic re-setting, eating disorders, diabetes, IBS / gut disorders, depression, stress/adrenal fatigue, hormonal regulation and immune related illnesses such as cancer. Simoné has created her own unique protocols that focus on diet and whole food supplementation that address nutritional deficiencies, digestive and absorption weakness, hormonal imbalances, emotional triggers of eating, movement and stress management. Simoné believes both the fuel one eats, married in with the function of all 11 systems of the body is the key to creating each clients bespoke wellness formula. The human body has many similarities but no two people are the same so a tailored protocol must be created for each person, generating the keys they need to transform their health.


'A holistic, scientific and naturopathic approach that involves looking beyond symptoms to find the root cause of health issues, is the only way to break the vicious cycle of disease and bring about long term healing and restoration. The emotional, physiological, lifestyle and genetic factors must be investigated in order to correctly diagnose and treat ones imbalances. By adopting this approach the client gets well and stays well. There is no greater gift than to assist a client into vibrant health and to give them the tools they need to stay there, long term.’ Simoné Laubscher

Simoné has formulated her own line of whole-food organic nutritional supplements called Rejuv Nutrition after becoming more and more frustrated with the synthetic vitamin industry, preventing her clients from gaining optimum health. https://www.rejuv.co.uk/store

Simoné is the personal nutritionist for Elle Macpherson and is the formulator for the international wellness company Welleco (www.welleco.com).

Simoné began her career in Australia working in special populations pertaining to cardiac rehab, diabetes, obesity, eating disorders and cancer patients. Simoné moved to the UK in 2001 and went on to be Joint Head of Medical Services and Head Nutritionist at The Third Space Medicine in London, where she continued to specialise in obesity, metabolic and eating disorders. Simoné then founded her own chain of international anti-ageing clinics called Active Anti-Ageing and rolled these out as bolt on businesses to existing international clinics. Simoné also lectured on the international longevity circuit. It was during these years of rolling out her clinics, walking through the cancer journey with her Mother and finishing off her study that Simoné developed a deep love for disease prevention and treatment.

Simone then went on to launch Rejuv 12 years ago uniting with her husband’s clinic called The Back Clinic. The Back Clinic has been on Harley Street since 1998, specialising in spinal rehab. From the merging of these two Harley Street clinics The Back Clinic and Active Anti-Aging, Rejuv Physio and Nutrition was born.

‘Natalie consulted for me as a Nutritional Therapist last year when I was experiencing some minor health issues. Her time with me and her brilliant understanding of the way the body works helped focus my food choices and meal plans and keep me on a nourishing , healthy eating path. Her kind ,calm and understanding nature put me at ease and her in-depth knowledge was very reassuring. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.’ – Anna Schmidt.

‘IBS , mood swings, stubborn weight that I couldn’t shift, exhaustion, headaches, and hearing loss lead me to have a nutrition consultation with Natalie and it has genuinely changed my life. It is not an instant fix but it is empowering to regain some control and know that youre really nourishing yourself. Natalie breaks it all down, explains everything so simply and tailors everything so simply to fit your lifestyle and to whats realisitically achievable. She is so knowledgeable and has got such a gentle manner.’ – Lucy Barker.

‘I thoroughly enjoyed having a Nutritional therapy consultation with Natalie. She was very professional and enlightened me on nutritional theories which I had never considered or even heard of before. Everything made sense and explained why I used to get so tired mid morning and late afternoon, and had 10pm sugar cravings. Natalie takes a very well rounded view of your current diet and helps you to make adjustments to include healthier choices. I appreciate not being told I needed to radically change what I was eating, but make positive changes which I am still applying today. ‘ Kathy Pavid.

‘I have honestly been feeling so good since taking Natalie’s advice. I’m not skipping breakfasts, which I’ve noticed means I have more energy and I am not craving carbs. I’m eating more veggies and feeling great ‘ Tori Parker.
