Dr Piers Bubbers B.App.Sc., M.Ost., B.Sc., Member AOA
Piers came to Osteopathy after completing a Science degree at Monash University and then traveling the world and living in far flung places. He studied Osteopathic medicine at RMIT University Melbourne, graduating in 2009. Over the past 2 years he has worked in the North Island of New Zealand.
His treatment style is varied and gentle, facilitating change in an open and supported environment with good communication. His approach to Osteopathy has been molded by a decade of yoga and meditation practice and a curiosity for all things philosophical.
Over the years he has continued to develop a special interest in the treatment and management of both acute and chronic injuries especially of the pelvis, neck, shoulder, and arm. More recently he worked in a clinic which specialized in treating babies and children. A delightful and rewarding experience.
Piers is continually updating his education with further training in all fields of health care and has treated a wide variety of patients, from office workers to labourers and from newborns to great grandparents!
When Piers is not working at Yarra Osteopathy you can find him at a local café, in a yoga class or tending the veggie patch in the back yard.
