Before becoming an osteopath, I worked in hospitality for many years and I’m still passionate about a good coffee and even more importantly…a good cocktail!
I’m also an ardent music enthusiast, I play the electric bass and double bass and I’m currently teaching myself how to play the piano.
I love staying active and I find martial arts give me a great balance of mindfulness, coordination and flexibility training.
I’m also the clinic clown so circus arts are a favourite too.
I find it both challenging and rewarding to work with patients with nerve pain and neurological symptoms and I love seeing those with long-standing issues find new hope and take control of their situation.
Neck pain, headaches and nerve entrapments are my strong suit.
I studied under Della at Victoria University. I always had great respect for her and in my final year she took me on as a post-grad mentee. After that I just knew that I would grow to be the best Osteopath possible if I could work with her and continue learning.
Paul’s interest in healthcare began when he was 18 years old and signed up for his first Kung Fu class. After seeing firsthand how vitally important exercise, mindfulness and good nutrition was for his health he decided to draw on his experiences and learn how to provide quality health services to the public.
Paul began working as a Remedial Massage Therapist in 2005. It was during his time working alongside Osteopaths in a clinic in Sydney’s CBD that he realised how holistic and comprehensive the Osteopathic approach was, and that it had to be the next part of his personal and professional journey.
Paul studied Osteopathy at Victoria University, completing a Bachelor of Science (Clinical Science) and a Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) and has since been practicing at Inner West Osteopathy in Newtown, Sydney. He has now joined us at Melbourne Osteohealth and is available for consultation on Saturdays.
When he’s not at MOH Paul is a practicing academic and holds a Senior Lecturer role at Melbourne’s Endeavour College where he teaches into the Health Science and Clinical Myotherapy programs.
Reflecting a strong interest in biomechanics and neurophysiology, your sessions with Paul will involve a thorough physical examination to identify postural imbalances and aberrant movement patterns. After gaining an understanding of why you are experiencing your symptoms a treatment plan can be developed and implemented. Paul will also look for any other conditions that may require medical or specialist attention.
With over 10 years’ experience as a manual therapist Paul is highly skilled at using myofascial release techniques, muscle energy techniques, joint manipulations and exercise prescription to help restore balance to the body and reduce your discomfort. By the end of each session with Paul you should have a better understanding of the nature of your condition, how to best manage it and how you can return to a better state of health and well-being.
