At Karuna-maya Medicine Osteopathy, we strive to help you to reach good health naturally. "Osteopathy is a hands on approach to healthcare recognising the important link between the structures of your body and the way it works. Osteopaths focus on how your skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves and circulation work together to improve your health and well-being."
(For more information please refer to Osteopathy Australia)
As osteopaths are primary health care providers, you do not need a referral to see an osteopath, however you are welcome to bring one.
Most health funds will cover osteopathic treatment. Please contact your health fund for details.
