In addition to completing a Masters Degree in Osteopathy, she has gone on to further her knowledge and skills with postgraduate study in the following areas: pregnancy-related conditions, diastasis recti rehabilitation, cycling related injuries, cupping, dry needling therapy, clinical pilates and falls prevention in the elderly.

Kristen has experience in treating a wide variety of patients from children to the elderly, including elite athletes, professional dancers and singers, and patients who suffer from chronic pain conditions.  She takes a professional approach to health and aims to address the cause and not just the symptoms of your pain. She believes in educating her patients about their health in a clear and positive manner, enabling every patient to play a role in their ongoing health management.

Kristen has developed her skills whilst establishing herself as a reputable Osteopath in Bayside Osteopathic and Pilates clinics. She has assisted numerous patients in alleviating their symptoms of back and neck pain, headaches and jaw pain, post-surgical rehabilitation and women’s health complaints (including menstrual pain and pre/post natal problems).

Kristen is a licensed Tupler Technique provider, a research-based rehabilitation approach to diastasis recti, which can be a contributing factor in recurrent injuries, pain and dysfunction.

Kristen is a member of Osteopathy Australia and a clinical supervisor at RMIT University. She is committed to the continuing development of her skills so she can provide her patients with the best possible treatment and care.
