Linking Structure and Function

Kate Blackmore – Osteopathy

“It is the role of the osteopath to find health, anyone can find disease”. AT Still

Kate graduated from RMIT as an Osteopath in 2001. In 10 years of practice, she has gained a breadth of experience working with people of all ages in large and small practices from the inner city to rural towns. ‘I’m thrilled to be part of Healing Well and the Castlemaine community and love country life with my young family’ Kate is renewed and challenged by her work educating student osteopaths at Victoria University. ‘Being involved in education keeps me thinking and helps me stay up to date with changes in health care.’ In her practice, Kate uses a wide variety of gentle techniques such as stretching and massage along with mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues. These techniques can be used to treat a range of musculo-skeletal problems, including back and neck pain, headaches, joint and muscle pain and injuries arising from work and sports. Kate takes a holistic view of health care using hands-on techniques to enhance general health and assist in the treatment of systemic illness and specific complaints. ‘My emphasis is on the essential link between the structure of the body and the way we function.’ Kate can be contacted for information or an appointment on 0459 941 605
