With over 13 years clinical experience as an Osteopath and remedial massage therapist, Melanie enjoys working with acute to chronic cases of all ages, and is dedicated to helping you restore balance, relieve pain, and move freely.
Melanie is passionate about maximising quality of life. In her spare time, she enjoys Pilates, rowing, kayaking, snowboarding, hiking, and camping adventures with family and lots of puppy love. Life experiences and injury inspired Melanie to learn how to find a healthy balance for herself and others as a physical therapist.
Interest in pain management and functional rehabilitation led Melanie to Osteopathy while working as a Remedial Massage Therapist and Circus Skills Coach in Byron Bay. Melanie has regularly participated in various sports and activities, so she understands many of the unique challenges and injuries that can arise.
Melanie uses osteopathy to holistically assess how you move and function, aiming to understand your individual needs and expectations to create a suitable treatment plan for you. Your treatment with Melanie includes a combination of safe and effective osteopathic and remedial massage techniques to free restricted joints, release tight muscles and fascia, to assist in managing pain and lymphatic congestion, address ergonomic and postural influences, and to help you recover from musculoskeletal injuries.
As a qualified Personal Trainer and Pilates enthusiast, Melanie encourages active involvement in recovery by educating you with practical lifestyle strategies, integrating rehabilitative and functional exercises that aim to reduce pain intensity and keep you moving.
