About Our Osteopaths
Osteopaths at Flourish are fully qualified, government registered, and full members of Osteopathy Australia.
While our practitioners are trained in all areas of osteopathy, each of us has our individual areas of special interest and unique approach to osteopathic treatment.
Sometimes we may recommend osteopathic treatment from one of our other osteopaths if we think their approach will be more helpful for you. We work as a team. Flourish osteopaths respect and value the role that other health care professionals contribute to your overall health. Because we work with other health care professionals, you are assured of receiving the most appropriate and effective care for your needs.
The Osteopathy Australia is the professional body representing Australian osteopaths. It promotes osteopathic awareness and education in the community, liaises with regulatory bodies such as Medicare, WorkCover, Government departments, universities and health funds.
