Hans Axelson, is the founder and principal of Axelsons Institute. He is a Physiotherapist and Rosen Method teacher, who co-teaches internationally with founder Marion Rosen. In 1962 when he was 28, he founded the Axelsons Institute. This was 20 years before the interest in alternative medicine and body-work started in Sweden. He is definitely a pioneer! The main course of study at the Axelsons Institute is Massage, but there others such as the Rosenmethod, Acupressure, Reflexology, Animal Massage, Chiropody and 15 other types of courses in the schools programme. Hans has always been interested in new methods. What he has not tried is not worth trying! He lives as he preaches: takes lots of treatments himself, eats well and exercises regularly and loves walking in the Swedish mountains and in the forests.
