osteopathy

Alex grew up in Coffs Harbour and has spent most of his early career in well established practices with brilliant osteopaths in Sydney's northern beaches. Recently resettling in his home town, he brings his experience practicing osteopathy in a wide variety of cultural contexts to the region. 

 

He has an interest in treating children, women in pregnancy, babies, headache sufferers, senior care, hands and feet, postural strains, sporting and lifestyle injuries and supporting patient's pre and post surgery.

Alex has a passion for surfing, yoga, meditation and cooking what comes from his home garden and the local markets.

 

 As an Osteopath, our practitioner is a primary health care provider. Rebates are available through all private health care funds and the osteopathic therapy is supported by Medicare's Enhanced Primary Care program.

 

visceral osteopathy

Visceral manipulations assist to bring blood flow, mobility, structural function and organisation back to the viscera (belly organs) and their connective tissues.

Julian uses gentle manipulations often in cooperation with the patients breathing to activate the abdominal lymph system to support the induced structural changes.

 

parietal osteopathy

Parietal osteopathy treats the musculoskeletal system. 

The aim is to restore joints, bones, muscles, ligaments and fascias back to balance.

Julian may use techniques such as MET (tensing and relaxing of muscles), gentle ligament and fascia balance techniques and the mobilisation of joints and related segments.

craniosacral osteopathy

Cranio-sacral osteopathy ranges from the cranium and spine to the sacrum, which protects the central nervous system. Deep within this system flows the cerebrospinal fluid.

With gentle 'listening with the hands' techniques the practitioner diagnoses and treats to restore balance on a very fine structural level.
