An early career as a leading professional dancer sparked an interest for Vanessa in the human body and the physical effects of activity. After undertaking various courses in health and fitness to develop her knowledge and understanding, she progressed into the field of osteopathy.
The dance and fitness background have given Vanessa a special interest in treating athletes and sports injuries. “It is an achievement when you can see the progress the patient is making through treatment” she says “and watching them progress back to their previous level of fitness. It inspires me to work hard with my patients and makes my job so enjoyable.”
Since having children of her own, Vanessa has expanded her knowledge and skill set so that she can pursue another area of interest, cranial osteopathy. She has developed a keen passion for the osteopathic technique and has found it to be of great benefit to pregnant women, babies and young children and a variety of people suffering with stress and anxiety.
Vanessa is passionate about making a difference to the lives of people who have physical ailments. She has an empathy with people and enjoys working in the local Northern Beaches community.
