Joanna Bednarek
Patient Care Manager.

Joanna was born in Poland, where she studied Slavic Literature, Culture and Politics at Jagiellonian University, before later moving to Munich, Germany. It was here that she became interested in holistic health following her experience working with children with ADHD. Having seen the effect that nutrition and lifestyle can have on peoples’ lives, she decided to pursue this as a career and went on to study nutritional therapy. This interest in helping others has developed over the years, and she have spent time both furthering my knowledge and branching into functional medicine practices.

Since moving to Edinburgh 5 years ago, Joanna has worked as a support worker and health adviser, as well as a manager of Jan de Vries Health Center.

Joanna is also an experienced and versatile massage therapist, with over 10 years’ experience in complementary therapies.

She is a warm and approachable person dedicated to help you answer any questions you might have!
