In over twenty-five years as an Osteopath, Bruce has treated people from all walks of life. He has been Osteopath to the Australian Open Tennis Tournament since 2004, and at the Hawthorn Football Club since 2015. He has previously lectured at Victoria University and RMIT and taught on many post graduate courses for Osteopaths. One of Melbourne’s most highly regarded practitioners, Bruce founded North Carlton Osteopathy in 1998 treating nearby and Brunswick Osteopathy needs.
Over the years he has attended many post graduate courses himself – always looking to learn and develop – which has culminated in a wide variety of treatment and management skills at his disposal. From deep tissue massage, expertise in joint manipulation to gentle balancing techniques, Bruce can tailor a treatment approach to suit the individual.
He has a particular interest in managing sports injuries, treating kids, and helping expectant mums-to-be.
