New Osteopaths at Healing Well

Healing_Well_osteopathyHealing Well is pleased to welcome two new Osteopaths: Gary Fryer and Allison Atkin, to join our centre for health and wellbeing.

Allison Atkin completed her Masters in Osteopathy at Victoria University in Melbourne and joins Healing Well after recently returning from the UK, where she completed a two-year post-graduate diploma in the osteopathic treatment of babies, children and pregnancy at the Osteopathic Centre for Children in London.

She currently works in a well renowned clinic in East Melbourne and is travelling to see patients in Castlemaine every Thursday. Allison provides gentle, hands on treatments for the whole family. She enjoys working alongside medical practitioners and other allied health professionals to provide the best possible care. She enjoys the fresh air and strong community values in Castlemaine and looks forward to spending time here.

Gary Fryer is a very experienced osteopath and Castlemaine local, who has practised in town for over 15 years. Gary is returning to part time practice at Healing Well, while continuing his academic work as Associate Professor and head of Osteopathy at Victoria University.

Gary uses a wide variety of manual therapy techniques aimed at decreasing pain and improving function. He has a special interest in evidence informed practice, applying research to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients.

Gary Fryer will be replacing Kate Blackmore (osteopath), who will spend the remainder of 2014 travelling with her young family.

Healing Well fosters and supports healthy life practices and it is important that our practitioners are inspired to continue to learn, develop and take time out to recharge. Kate will return to Healing Well, refreshed, in early 2015.

We are pleased to offer continuing and expanding osteopathy at Healing Well and look forward to the offerings these experienced and skilled practitioners will bring to our centre. If you would like to book an appointment at Healing Well, please check our website for individual practitioner details. For osteopathic appointments, please contact Allison Atkin (0438 885 430) or Gary Fryer (0459 941 605).
