Jena strives to listen, understand and be honest with her patients. Because every ‘body’ is different, there is no ‘one-size fits all’ approach with Jena; every consult is completely bespoke. Her objective is to motivate and educate her patients in co- and self-managing their pain according to their lifestyle, beliefs and interests. Her goals as an osteopath are to:
Make you feel reassured and confident in tackling your injury.
Educate you on how and why you are in pain.
Devise an appropriate plan of attack for long-term results.
Do all of the above collaboratively with you in a positive and friendly environment!
Dr. Alexis Page

Alexis’ passion in life is osteopathy and the human body, and appreciates that she has found it every single day. She is inspired by the capabilities of the human body and truly believes that you can do anything you put your mind to. She is a basketball enthusiast, having played since she was 5 and is still heavily involved in the sport today, so treating sports injuries is one of her interests.

During your consultation with Alexis, she will help you understand what is going on with their pain specifically, which is very important in your recovery, so you can better understand how to help yourself too. One of the unique things about Alexis is that she works with her patients closely to reach their goals in getting back to their sport, or to go back to normal life pain free. She will treat you as an individual because every person and injury is different.

Bryan is a passionate and fully qualified Osteopath having completed his Bachelor of Science (Clinical Science) and Masters in Health Science (Osteopathy) at Victoria University.

Having grown up around the local area, Bryan played football and basketball at the mighty Whitehorse Colts and Blackburn Vikings. He loves meeting others in the community and is always on the lookout for the best local coffee joints.
Bryan is truly fascinated around the complexity of the human body. He believes that each body is designed to have everything that person needs, and it is up to both the patient and practitioner to unlock its full potential.

His approach may consist of a combination of hands on treatment, education, dry needling as well as exercises specifically tailored to each patient. Through this, Bryan aims to help each patient achieve greater wellbeing, strength and performance, which may lead to better long term outcomes.
