Snjezana’s fascination with the human body and anatomy started in her youth, when she chose to study medicine. Even as a young girl, she was intrigued by the movement and function of the human body, realising the importance of being in touch with one’s body. She soon realised the importance of studying and observing ‘the live body’, which inspired her to train as a physiotherapist.
As she became more experienced and knowledgeable, she started delving into more holistic aspects observing how emotions and stress affect the human body.
She has a unique and highly intuitive approach, with the complete focus on healing the person. She often combines the different techniques of Deep tissue massage, Cranio-sacral therapy and Yumeiho, an oriental massage therapy that aims to re-establish the symmetry of the body and to maintain or restore its harmonious functioning through joint manipulations, stretching and acupressure.
Besides human body, Snjezana has a strong passion for dancing, horse riding and swimming.
