We take the time to get to know you and your individual needs. We are committed to discovering an appropriate, personalised treatment for you by working with you and by having a dialogue with you.
We offer a safe environment, encouraging you to feel at ease and empowered to play a proactive role in your own wellness. We offer options for remedial massage and naturopathy and can directly refer you to another practitioner if needed.
At Osteopathic Sense, we work with the understanding that every part of every body functions with the same underlying principles. These underlying principles can be put out of sync by a range of external forces. Most people will experience some of these forces such as physical trauma, stress, or anxiety at some point in their lives. These issues can be managed through physical treatment, massage and manipulation as well as through gentle conversation and emotional response recognition (helping assess the fundamental issues that arise in an individual’s body). Our practitioners understand the complexities of life, because they live it.
We acknowledge that Osteopathic Sense is located on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, who are the traditional custodians of this land. We would like to pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
