I have been practising in Brisbane as a qualified osteopath since 2004. My journey to study osteopathy started over 8 years earlier.

As a teenager, I was athletic and an accomplished tennis player – until became ill with glandular fever and chronic fatigue syndrome. After a long period of illness with unsatisfactory results from standard medical approaches, I began to search for a safer, gentler and more effective treatment. That is when I discovered osteopathy. After having some treatments with a cranial osteopath, I soon felt my health significantly improving.

Study & work history

Feeling markedly improved, I left Brisbane for Melbourne to study osteopathy for five years. After graduating in 2004, I returned to the Brisbane Osteopathic Centre to start work as an osteopath. I have since became a business partner and have been treating patients of all ages for nearly 15 years.

Special interests

  • musculoskeletal pain and injury for all members of the family
  • growing pain for kids and teenagers
  • mothers and babies
  • chronic fatigue syndrome (due to my personal experience with this condition)
  • headaches and migraines
  • back and neck pain
  • joint pain and inflammation

Osteopathy in the family

After being in private practice for a few years, I discovered that my great grandfather had been an osteopath in South East Queensland in the early 1930s.

Professional development

In America and Australia, I completed post-graduate training in the Biodynamics of Osteopathy in the Cranial field for phase 1-9 courses and the paediatric modules. Paediatric osteopathy courses allow me the necessary knowledge and qualifications to have the skills to treat babies of any age.

Teaching & lecturing

In 2007, I appeared in a Channel 9 Brisbane Extra story for colds and flu. I have given numerous presentations on the topic of Cranial Osteopathy for babies and mothers and was a keynote speaker at Griffith University’s annual midwife conference in 2009 and lectured to the midwife students there again in 2010. I have also presented on Cranial Osteopathy to midwives at the:

  • Birth Centre, Royal Women’s Hospital (2007)
  • Mater Hospital (2007)
  • Wesley Hospital (2008)

I gave talks on the benefits of Osteopathy for feeding difficulties in 2009 at the Breastfeeding Clinic at the Mater Hospital and to lactation consultants from the Australian Breastfeeding Association. I also contributed a small section on Cranial Osteopathy for the book called ‘Reflux Reality’ by Glenda Blanch in 2010. In July 2013 I gave a presentation to the Friends of the Birth Centre on Osteopathy for babies and children.

Doctors Referral (Medicare CDM) and DVA

I regularly receive referrals from Medical practitioners (G.P’s) as part of Medicare’s chronic disease management plan. As a government registered practitioner I am also able to accept both Gold and White card holders for the DVA.

Availability
