About Us - Dr Amy kivellDr Amy kivell - Osteopath
B.Sc Clinical Science
Masters of Health Science (Osteopathy)

Amy completed her Bachelor of Science (Clinical Science) and Masters in Health Science (Osteopathy) at Victoria University in 2014. Since graduating, Amy has been working for 2 years as an osteopath in Canada.

Amy has a keen interest in helping patients who suffer from sporting injuries, acute/ chronic pain: including headaches, and back pain, and pelvic floor related issues which she incorporates her pilates training into her treatments.

In her treatments she uses a ‘hands-on’ holistic approach in locating the cause of the problem, which may not be at the site where symptoms are present. This form of treatment involves making assessments of the various systems that make up the body in order to identify their level of involvement.

It is Amy’s belief that osteopathic treatment also encompasses a patient’s nutrition/ gut health, physical activity and stress levels. In addition, she believes in setting goals for her patients in order to have control of their own health and wellbeing.

Amy loves to travel, most of the time chasing snow for snowboarding, and also enjoys running, surfing, yoga/ pilates and hanging around the beach.
