"The body has an innate ability to heal itself."
Nathalie graduated from Victoria University with a Bachelor of Clinical Science and Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) in 2001. Nathalie's interest with the human body (how it moves, functions and heals) started from an early age. Osteopathy, with its holistic principles and philosophies on our body's innate capacity to heal itself, allowed for a new found understanding and appreciation that continues to grow.
Nathalie has been fortunate enough to have studied and worked both interstate and overseas with leading Osteopaths, gaining priceless exposure to the fundamentals of Osteopathy, mainly in Biodynamic Osteopathy (Traditional Osteopathy) or Osteopathy in the Cranial Field. This treatment is a gentle yet profound holistic hands-on approach addressing primary cause and relieving symptoms as well as synchronising with your own body's ability to heal itself.
As part of the whole health spectrum, Nathalie also loves experimenting in the kitchen, discovering new flavours and making healthy, tasty and exciting food options that are not overwhelming. Nathalie naturally enjoys sharing this love of food and whole body health with her patients. So luckily, Luxton Clinic has a fabulous kitchen out the back!
Meg is very excited to be back at Luxton Clinic in her new role as clinic manager.
‘I love being surrounded by motivated practitioners who strive to help their clients achieve holistic health and happiness. It is incredibly rewarding seeing our clients aspire for better health resulting in them achieving their personal goals. Having worked as a nurse and midwife for many years I have seen first hand the impact that poor nutrition and life style choices can have on a persons short and long term health. I’m passionate about teaching my 3 children the importance of physical and mental wellbeing in life. I also love seeing things grow from seeds and picking the produce at the end. I’m often out the front of Luxton Clinic tending to our wonderful veggie patch, definitely a perk of the job!. I look forward to welcoming you all at Luxton Clinic’.
