Vanja Hukic

Sports Massage Therapist

Vanja Hukic - Sports massage therapist in Bournemouth and Poole

QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCES:

  • Swedish massage therapist
  • Personal trainer EQF level 4
  • Chiropractic student

During my degree in Sweden I was working in a multi-disciplinary clinic where I got to handle both acute and chronic cases. I soon realised that I wanted to be able to help more and also get a deeper understanding of neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunctions. I therefore decided to move to the UK and study chiropractic at the AECC university where I am due to graduate 2022.

SKILLS

  • Deep tissue massage
  • Trigger-point therapy
  • Specific spinal mobilization
  • Orthopaedic special testing
  • Functional assessment
  • Designing personalized exercise programs
  • Dietary analyses and advice within the context of wellness.

A Swedish massage therapist uses primarily deep tissue massage, trigger-point therapy and therapeutic-stretches in their treatments. As a personal trainer I use functional assessments to specifically design safe rehabilitative/strengthening exercises to help you reach your desired goal. I also have skills in performing dietary analyses and providing dietary advice within the context of wellness.

This combined with my ongoing master’s degree in chiropractic allows me to implement up-to-date evidence for treatment, prevention and management of problems with the musculoskeletal system.

PASSIONS

Chiropractic, football, Mediterranean food and self-development.

WHERE WOULD WE FIND VANJA IN HIS SPARE TIME:
