What is Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathic Medicine is a form of Manual Medicine that looks at your entire body and mind and how effective it is working, as one unit.


Your brain, skeleton, muscles, nerves, organs, tissues and circulation are all balanced in harmony using an array of specialized Osteopathic techniques from gentle cranial sacral or biodynamic techniques, to other techniques including manipulation, soft tissue, muscle energy or dry-needling to name a few, depending on your condition and your preference to treatment.

Osteopathic physicians are government registered allied health practitioners with rebates available to those with the appropriate level of private health cover.
Your Osteopath will also assess your posture, biomechanics, ergonomics, cranial flow and core stability and will prescribe specific advice tailored to your condition.

Finding the Health is the primary focus of Osteopathic Medicine and our aim is to remind your body of its true health potential with no pain.

Your body heals itself naturally.

Allow your Osteopathic physician to assist you in finding your Health and living your life to its fullest potential.
