Originally from rural Victoria, Sarah began studying Osteopathy in Melbourne and moved to the Northern Rivers where she graduated from Southern Cross University in Lismore with a Masters of Osteopathic Medicine and Bachelor in Clinical Sciences.
Sarah grew up dedicating most of her time to playing netball and during her many years of pursuing this passion she developed an appreciation for the human body. She was always fascinated by its resilience and ability to adapt. Her own experience with injuries and rehabilitation prompted Sarah to begin studying Osteopathy so that she could help others manage injuries and every day aches and pains.
Sarah has a keen interest in managing a range of conditions including headaches, pregnancy and post-partum, sports related pain, and postural strains.
Sarah’s approach to every consult is tailored to the individual’s needs and their body as a whole. Following the principles of Osteopathy, she uses hands on assessment of the neuro-musculoskeletal and visceral systems along with consideration of each individual’s lifestyle habits and health goals, to help establish a suitable patient-centred management plan.
Sarah uses a variety of osteopathic techniques including soft tissue therapy, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release, indirect techniques, joint mobilisation and joint manipulation. Exercises may also be prescribed as a part of the management plan. She also highly values educating individuals to help them feel empowered about their health.
Sarah has completed additional courses in Myofascial Dry Needling and Cupping.
In her down time, Sarah loves to be out enjoying nature, exploring and photographing beautiful coastlines, and playing guitar.
