Osteopathy

We have six fully accredited practitioners of Osteopathic Medicine available: Karen Bryant, Sue Broadbent, Toby Mills, Amelia Rocco, Peter Lockhart and Emily Pepper.

The clinic is staffed with two osteopaths each weekday and we have a half day clinic on Saturday. At various times during the year we will have staff absences for leave or continuing professional development, however we endeavour always to have at least one osteopath in practice each day, except public holidays and Sundays.

New patients attend an initial consultation of 60 minutes to complete a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis of the presenting condition, followed by osteopathic treatment.  Repeat appointments are usually 30 minutes duration, extended appointments of 45 minutes may be arranged with your osteopath.

Osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments), along with mobilisation and or manipulation of specific joints and soft tissues. Depending on your practitioner  and your condition, your treatment may also include Cranial or Visceral osteopathy, Dry Needling and exercise prescription.
