principal AND REGISTERED OSTEOPATH
I’ve been practicing Osteopathy for over 10 years, starting my career in Toronto, Canada in 2008 and completing a Master of Osteopathy degree in Auckland, New Zealand in 2014. I have a holistic approach to treatment that brings together cranial and visceral osteopathy together with the musculoskeletal and structural form of osteopathy. This allows me to bring a unique yet specifically individualised treatment to my patients.
Movement, in any form, is a key part of my work and life philosophy. I believe that part-taking in life is more enjoyable than watching it go by. When I’m not in the clinic, I’m in the gym, on my bike, running, kayaking or swimming. As a result, I have had first-hand experience in injury rehabilitation and can share with you a few tips that can inspire you to return to or continue with your favourite activities, whether it be running, biking, gardening or just moving.
Whether you are a competitive athlete, weekend warrior, pregnant woman, or avid gardener, we can work together to ensure that you are moving at your optimal ability.
My interest in Osteopathy comes from living an active life and occasionally being the patient as a result. The principles and methods of Osteopathy are in line with my own philosophies on health and well-being and are reflected in the way I treat my patients. I like getting to know my patients, listening to them and hearing what they need from me to individualise our time together. Every patient is unique which allows me to tailor my treatment specific to their needs, whether it be gentle, more subtle techniques or stronger structural techniques. The main goal that I set for my patients is to ensure that they can get going again and perform what they love to do as optimally as possible.
I have a particular interest in hypermobile and chronic-pain patients such that my Masters’ thesis was on Generalised Joint Hypermobility and have greater insight in how I can help my patients manage their symptoms. As a hypermobile person myself, I understand its implications on day-to-day life as well as its association with chronic widespread pain.
When I’m not in clinic I am out with my dog. I like to keep fit and active, something I have truly come to appreciate that keeps me going and feeling great. In saying that, also enjoy a good Netflix session and taking time for myself. I believe everything around us influences our wellbeing and little changes and routines can make such a difference. I have a creative history and think outside the box when it comes to my patients as well as life. I enjoy treating patients of all ages, backgrounds, shapes and sizes and lifestyles and look forward to meeting you.
