Manual Osteopathic Practitioner, B.Sc. (Osteopathy)/M.H.Sc. (Osteopathy) + Pilates Instructor
Growing up playing tennis, netball, and basketball competitively in Australia, Kirsten recognised the importance of health education and movement from an early age. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Clinical Science and Master’s degree in Osteopathy at Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia. Prior to this she studied a Health Science degree at Deakin University majoring in Nutrition and Exercise Science.
What drew Kirsten to the Osteopathy profession was the holistic approach to treatment and the patient centred care. She loves that she can facilitate someone’s wellbeing by encouraging their bodies healing process. This shows in the way she treats, offering a range of techniques to relieve pain symptoms including soft tissue massage, visceral manipulation, and articulation.
It was her own practice and love of Pilates which pushed her to complete studies in Clinical and Rehabilitation Pilates. Kirsten loves to complement her hands-on treatment with individualised rehabilitation programs suited towards each patients’ goals. Some of her clinical interests include: sports injuries, headache/migraines/jaw pain (TMJ dysfunction), pre and post-natal care, neck and back pain, and general movement and rehabilitation.
Kirsten is a very open and warm Osteopath who enjoys getting to know her patients and motivating them to take an active role in their health and wellbeing. Outside of work, you’ll find her keeping active – from Pilates to running, listening to music, travelling, and reading.
