His approach to Osteopathy encompasses both biomechanical (structural) and gentle functional models. This approach includes cranial osteopathy, which is a safe, effective treatment for people of all ages, and is particularly beneficial for treating infants, children and women during pregnancy.

Why did you become an Osteopath?

I saw an Osteopath after a childhood injury that had left me with debilitating headaches. I had seen many manual healthcare practitioners, and my GP had prescribed pain medication, at the time I was 11 years old. None of the treatments had made a difference until the Osteopath looked me over from toe to head and figured the problem was a multifactorial one and required a holistic approach. That approach freed me of headaches and inspired me to become an Osteopath myself.

What do you enjoy the most about being an Osteopath?

I enjoy spending one on one time with my patients, listening deeply to their concerns and establishing a long-term plan for their health. I love the focus Osteopathy places on health, rather than disease and the long term relationships that I have built within my local community.


What other hobbies or activities do you enjoy outside of Osteopathy?

When not wearing my Osteopathy hat one of my favourite pastimes is spending time with my beautiful family. I also play golf (including in the backyard much to my family's amusement) and am a keen guitarist!
