Brendan joins us from Melbourne, Australia where he graduated from Victoria University with a degree in Bachelor of Sciences (Clinical Science) and a Masters of Osteopathy.

Brendan is dedicated to expanding his knowledge and osteopathic skills to provide the best treatment and management care for his clients and uses a wide range of techniques including massage, joint manipulation, stretching and rehabilitation to get the best outcomes possible for his patients.
