Hakim Abdulkarim Hassan’s life is that of a wanderer. Born in Rwanda, of African-Arab descent, his journeys took him from country to country until he reached Finland, where he continued his educational and professional career. Never being able to keep his mind and body to rest, Hakim was always engaged in a variety of different sports such as endurance racing, weight lifting and cycling.
In Finland he worked as a sports therapist and personal trainer in Alexium gym, Helsinki where he also established his Spine & Joints clinic. Observing the human body closely and experiencing its capabilities as well as its limitations inspired Hakim to become an Osteopath. In 2005 Hakim moved to Muscat-Oman, where he established the first center specializing in Osteopathy Finland Osteopathy Clinic L.L.C. He now heads a team of Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and Sports Therapists, who provide first class manual healthcare to hundreds of patients every month, both young and old, expatriate and Omani. Outside his busy work schedule Hakim spends time working as a veteran Les Mills Body Pump instructor, building a Finnish sauna on his balcony and navigating the waters of the Gulf of Oman as a game-fishing enthusiast.
“Keep moving! That is the motto of my life and the advice I give to all my patients as an Osteopath. My life has been in constant motion. It has brought me invaluable knowledge about the human being in all its different aspects; different customs, different beliefs. In a similar way Osteopathy has been a journey for me to learn about the human body in all its diversity. In life itself, as well as with the human body, I am convinced that movement is essential for our well-being. Through Osteopathy I can help other people regain their mobility. That is why Osteopathy is not only my job, it is my life. Because Osteopathy keeps you going!”
