Vanessa has been a NSW AHPRA registered Osteopath for over 35 years.
Her own experience seeing an osteopath as a teenager sparked a career that she has loved.
She has experienced first-hand and helped others discover how osteopathy can help people gain better quality of life.
Vanessa's practice focuses on the basic osteopathic principles of restoring function to the body's mechanics (muscles, joints and connective tissues).
She treats a wide range of ages of people in pain from 10 year olds to 90 year olds.
And has a special interest in women's health and the problems associated with ageing.
A combination of Osteopathic techniques will be generally be used during treatment such as:
soft tissue massage, myofascial release, stretching, muscle energy techniques, articulation or mobilization of the joints and craniosacral therapy.
These may be combined with musculoskeletal acupuncture or dry needling, and you may also be given advice on posture, ergonomics and exercise with the aim of restoring balance to the body's systems.
Vanessa has completed numerous post graduate certificates in the past (see below). She is currently engaged in ongoing professional studies to constantly improve her knowledge and skills.
