Geelong Osteopaths - Newtown

SILVER SPONSOR

In practice for over 16 years, David & Kate began an Osteopathic clinic & Pilates rehab studio in Tauranga, New Zealand 14 years ago.

On moving back to Australia 9 years ago, with their young family, they set up clinic again from scratch, determined to have better work-life balance!!

As nationally accredited health care providers, we’re not legally allowed to have testimonials (we’d have a few!!) however, we can tell you that over 85% of our new clients come from word of mouth (we measure it!)

Having seen over 5000 clients, including national and world championship level athletes, we think we understand what people need, and how best to provide a solution for them.

In addition to Masters degree Osteopathic qualifications, we also have post grad Pilates and GEMT dry needling training, and do extensive yearly courses on the newest methods of functional movement assessment & treatment including SFMA, NKT and P-DTR.

As a result, we’re often able to accurately identify the underlying REASON why people become sore, and piece together a solution that sometimes involves other practitioners, to help people get the most optimal treatment outcome possible in the shortest time.

We’re Health Insurance, Workcover & TAC approved treatment providers, and are glad to be associated with GPC Squad.

Most of the time, once we get started we’ll discover that you’re already on the right track and we just need to make some tweaks to help you reach your goals. I’ll work with your personal and dietary preferences and make sure that the plan we come up with is sustainable for long-term success.

No fancy jargon or marketing spin. Just credible and ethical advice from someone who gets just as inspired and excited about your achievements as you do!
