Katie studied her undergraduate degree of Clinical Science (major of Osteopathy) and Masters of Osteopathic Medicine in the Northern Rivers, a hub for holistic health practices and alternate approaches. During her Masters, she contributed to research on the teaching of anatomy and its clinical relevance for osteopaths. This study had the aim of informing osteopathic university education to improve its ability to equip students for ‘real-world’ practice. Katie also pursued courses in cranio-sacral therapy to further her skills in nurturing the body with subtle treatment styles.
“I love practicing Osteopathy because every day I’m interacting with people, learning new things from them and encouraging them towards a life of less pain and better health.”
Katie uses a range of osteopathic techniques, from direct and structural to the more subtle. This is so each treatment is uniquely tailored to the client on that day, for what they need on the day.
In 2016 Katie resettled in Newcastle to enjoy proximity to family in the Hunter and the Mid-North Coast. “I’m enjoying Newcastle for how its laidback beaches affect the pace of the city, and that everywhere you go there is a beautiful creative undercurrent, making things a bit more exciting.” Katie explores this particularly through food and live music.
