Helen is an experienced and enthusiastic osteopath who strives to get to the root cause of her patients complaints and to help them achieve their recovery goals.
Helen enjoys treating all types of patients from sports people through to the elderly but has a particular passion for treating those suffering from chronic pain conditions, women’s health conditions, and headaches, migraines, vertigo and orofacial pain.
Helen was drawn to osteopathy in her 20s after struggling with headaches, neck pain and jaw pain following a whiplash injury as a teenager. Osteopathy was of such a huge benefit to her that she decided to pursue a career as one. Helen graduated from Unitec in Auckland, New Zealand in 2014 with a Bachelor of applied science degree and a Masters of Osteopathy. She chose to complete her masters qualification in osteopathic treatment for orofacial pain due to her own personal experience and has found this to be of great value when treating patients with similar complaints. She spent time working in a headache and migraine clinic and is trained in the Watson Headache approach which is designed for those suffering from chronic headaches and migraines.
Originally from New Zealand, Helen has made Melbourne her home and has settled in Bayside with her Australian husband and young child. She is a friendly and approachable osteopath that finds great reward in being able to help others. Being an avid hiker and foodie you will often find her scaling a mountainside or testing her taste buds out in various food joints around Melbourne.
Helen works out of our Sandringham clinic on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
