Co-director and Osteopath, Eliza, completed her Osteopathic qualification at Victoria University, which involved five years of full time study. This includes receiving a Masters degree for research on the Osteopathic treatment of heartburn. She has developed a particular interest in treating visceral (organ) conditions including asthma and constipation and has completed numerous postgraduate studies in this area in the UK, New Zealand and Australia.

In 2018 she not only presented but ran a women’s health conference in Sweden for osteopaths in Scandinavia.
Eliza is a passionate Osteopath who empathises strongly with her patients. She treats each patient as an individual and adjusts her treatment according to their specific needs. She enjoys following through with each and every patient to ensure they receive the best service possible.
