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!

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.

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.
