Hanna Gustafsson 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 experience 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 in 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 in finding the root cause of pain before moving to treat and rehabilitate patients. She maintains 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 Gustafsson 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 doesn’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!
