Level 1 Myofascial Dry Needling
Georgie graduated from RMIT University with a double bachelor’s degree in Health Science and Applied Science (Osteopathy).
From an early age, Georgie was determined to follow a career path that involved three things: helping people, healthcare and the human body. Georgie’s passion for osteopathy developed after seeking osteopathic treatment for her own pre-exsisting conditions to assist her in following an active lifestyle as a basketballer. Georgie was instantly inspired by her osteopath after noticing their holistic approach to her care and the way in which they supported all aspects of her health and wellbeing.
While studying, Georgie worked with a local AFL club where she was involved in preparing the players for competition, providing on-field care, guidance on recovery and management of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries. Additionally, Georgie completed further studies in Clinical Pilates with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute and now enjoys utilising Clinical Pilates and its principles within her approach to the management of patients.
Now after beginning work within her dream field, Georgie’s passion for osteopathy and specific areas of interest has grown. Georgie enjoys treats individuals of all ages and all conditions, however, has a specific interest in expanding her knowledge in the areas of biodynamics, paediatrics and support for women throughout their pregnancy and post birth.
Georgie’s strong sense of compassion and empathy inspires her to provide individually tailored, supportive and holistic osteopathic care to all patients. With a broad range of osteopathic techniques, she treats in both a direct (firm) and indirect (soft) manner and strives to deliver effective manual therapy. In addition to hands on treatment, she strives to provide support and empower her patients to take part in their own healthcare journeys through prescribing exercise rehabilitation, management and lifestyle advice.
Georgie is eager to utilise her knowledge and passion for osteopathy to enhance her patient’s wellbeing and quality of life in every way that she can.
