Vesna has a degree in Kinesiology and Health Science and has worked in the field of cardiac rehab at Southlake Hospital and as Health Promotion Coordinator for employee health and wellness programs. In recent years she has received certification as a Natural Nutritionist and completed her training as a Registered Massage Therapist.
Vesna has had wide range of work experiences in the field of health and wellness and is eager to employ her massage therapy and nutrition counseling skills to treat the whole person. She sees the treatment of any illness or injury as requiring a multi dimensional approach. She believes that the body was designed to heal itself when placed under the right conditions, receiving the appropriate therapy along with the patient’s engagement and participation.
Her massage therapy approach to treatment includes various manual techniques, with emphasis on active movement therapy, joint mobilization, progressive neuromuscular facilitation, hydrotherapy, cupping, dynamic taping as well as remedial exercises.
For those requiring nutritional support and counseling, Vesna can help by assessing where the break down is occurring in the diet, provide customized meal plans and lifestyle recommendations to address underlying dysfunction or just provide the body with additional support and preventative maintenance.
