Hi there! My name is Elle and I am proud to be working as an Osteopath at Oak Tree Osteopathy.
I have been a registered Osteopath since graduating in 2008 and have practiced in both NSW and Victoria. After University I spent time working in a clinic primarily focused on the treatment of pregnant women and babies. I have also completed a Graduate Certificate of Neonatal and Paediatric Manual Therapy. With all of this experience I really enjoy working with babies and children.
As my career has progressed, I have developed a broader scope of treatment. My passion now lies in treating the whole family unit. It is such a privilege to be the person you send your loved ones to. I love that through Osteopathy, I get to meet these important people in your lives and that you trust me to help them too.
My treatment style varies from person to person and can include stretching, massage and joint mobilisation techniques, I also regularly use cupping. I use gentler techniques where appropriate, particularly for people with chronic conditions or when working with children and older adults.
Along with manual therapy, I incorporate complimentary advice, such as exercise/stretches, ergonomic strategies and other lifestyle modifications to help you achieve your goals. Having grown up and lived for most of my life in the City of Boroondara, I have a professional and friendly network that I can refer to if required.
Outside of Osteopathy, I enjoy travelling, spending time at the beach, searching for great coffee around our area and chasing after my very busy toddler.
