Laura is a passionate and dedicated Osteopath, having vast experience working in clinics in both Australia and the UK.
After graduating as the top ranked student in the double Bachelor of Applied Science and Masters of Osteopathy degree at RMIT University, Laura began her career in Melbourne working alongside leading Osteopaths gaining valuable experience in obstetric, paediatric, geriatric, sporting and general practice.
Laura’s passion for travel and adventure has taken her all around the world, volunteering her time and skills in various orphanages in Africa and Thailand and working in a variety of locations, most recently a four year stint in the United Kingdom.
Her time in London was spent providing outstanding osteopathic care to the Houses of Parliament, Westminster, and the City of London as well as the Fulham Irish Gaelic Football and Hurling Club. This experience encouraged her to pursue a particular interest in functional exercises, rehabilitation and biomechanics through a Certification in Applied Functional Science with the Gray Institute (CAFS). This certification allows Laura to design tailored rehabilitation programs utilising functional movements unique to each patient’s goal, whether it be returning to an elite sport, weekend activities, or simply working in the garden.
Laura combines manual osteopathic medicine, acupuncture and functional rehabilitation not only as a way to achieve effective pain relief, but to help promote injury prevention while improving individual performance and lifestyle. Her unique approach to patient care encases clinical excellence and evidence based practice, partnered with a compassionate and genuine interest in her patients and optimising their health.
Laura recognises that life is all about balance. Her aim is not only to introduce each and every patient to their optimal health, but to prevent further occurrences of pain and dysfunction by promoting a stronger, more balanced approach to health & wellbeing.
