For as long as I remember, I’ve always held a fascination for analysing and observing body movement. Training in gymnastics to a high level from a young age evolved into human biology being my favourite subject through High School. From there it felt a natural progression continuing these passions on to the study of Osteopathy at university.
Finishing the 4-year full time degree in London at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (then the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy), gave me a fantastic opportunity to blend my observation skills in anatomy and biomechanics with a medical and scientific basis.
Leaving university, I moved to Greece where I set up and worked in my first osteopathic clinic combining Osteopathy with Naturopathy. Seeing for the first time how a body that moves well can be combined with diet and lifestyle changes to create massive positive impact in people’s lives was inspiring. Whilst there I attended 5 years of body orientated psychotherapy training. Supplementing this to the way I interacted with clients gave me an added advantage in being able to not only tailor programs to individuals, but to hone my skills in coaching and goal setting to help people more easily stick to and achieve great outcomes.
Moving back to London after 12 years with new skills I worked at the City Osteopathic Clinic in Bank, London. This was the first time I collaborated closer with personal trainers, yoga teachers and Pilates instructors. Working with clients with specific exercise and fitness goals inspired me to look closer at training methods, exercise prescription and rehabilitation.
After moving to Sydney in 2013 I have continued my own personal training and exercise exploration along with courses in functional movement, mobility enhancement, dry needling and taping techniques. After 15 years of my own personal yoga practice I completed my first 200-hour yoga teacher training course with Body Mind Life. This gave me a fantastic new insight into mobility, progressions in training and the role our inner worlds and mind plays in the way we feel in our environment.
I currently treat clients of all ages with a huge array of different conditions. Each person that comes to the clinic comes with their own story and I continue to find it both a pleasure and a source of great satisfaction to help people on their path back to healthy and confident bodies.
In 2012 Jerry graduated from NSW School of Massage and has since gained an extensive experience in deep tissue, remedial and sports massage therapy.
His interest in massage began as a hobby and after receiving massage to treat an injury and stress-related pains. He realised exercise and rest is not enough to eliminate the pain but massage is also part of it.
Along with Jerry’s lifelong interest and natural talent with bodywork therapies, he gained extensive knowledge from various courses including Core Therapy (Myofascial therapy), Fitness Certificate III, Orthopaedic testing with Joe Muscolino, Scars therapy and currently studying Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy.
Jerry applies a holistic approach to treating and eliminating his patient’s ailments. He’s philosophy is “Once we connect to our body, mind and energy, the healing process begins”.
Weoi is committed to enhancing the well-being and health of all his patients by providing osteopathic treatments for effective relief of musculoskeletal pain and improvement in quality of life.
Osteopathy goes beyond symptom-masking to address the root cause(s) of pain. He believes that for injury recovery and pain relief to be truly effective, advice and treatment have to be customised to individual needs.
Weoi aims to provide the best that manual therapy can offer to assess and treat your pain in context of your whole-body structure, balancing and easing tension in the soft tissues to allow better spinal and joint alignment. In regard to preventive and long-term care, patient education is the top-most priority to help you understand how you can effectively manage your pain to minimise on recurrences.

Combining relaxing hot stone therapy and sport/remedial massage is Szandra’s speciality. If you have a sport injury, work related pain, a stressful life or simply need to unwind, you’ll be in safe hands.

Aulia Restining (Resty)
Aulia Restining (Resty) is our front desk receptionist. She emigrated from Borneo, Indonesia, in 2012 after finishing her Economic Management degree.
She has been working in the hospitality industry in Australia for 6 years now and has developed strong customer service skills within different roles and establishments. She recently completed an Advanced diploma of Accounting.
Resty has a passion for delivering high standards of customer service to all customers.
Alexandra has a breadth of diverse experience that she integrates into her practice: upon completion of her Bachelor of Science (majoring in Immunology and Cell Pathology) she wrote health conferences for a global media company, and her analytical nature then led her to a career in Finance.
All this time Alexandra was being shuttled through multiple GPs and specialists on her own health journey, and she began to feel something was amiss in the modern medical model. With growing curiosity about her health and those around her, Alexandra commenced a Bachelor of Health Science in Western Herbal Medicine, where she learned there were so many more options available to patients with complex illnesses than were being offered.
Alexandra’s focus is embracing the latest scientific research about the body’s biochemical pathways and combining this with thousands of years of traditional knowledge about complementary and alternative medicine; seeing the improvement in her patients’ quality of life these interventions can offer is one of her greatest joys. This may include diet and lifestyle modifications, herbal medicines and nutritional supplements, each individualized to every patient to ensure changes are achievable and sustainable, thereby empowering them to take control of their health and wellness.
