Mount Waverley Podiatry & Melbourne Natural Podiatry
Reclaim your feet!
I pride myself on going that extra step to look after your complete foot health. I understand the integral role foot health has in your day to day wellbeing and seek to help you find solutions that keep you mobile. The feet can be the gateway to better health.
I specialise in analysing individual gait patterns, looking for the intricacies that when combined with an overload of activity, often lead to foot pain. I use mobility and exercise prescription to counter, correct and strengthen these injuries - crucial to this is taking away the underlying causes of poor function, often footwear choices and a lack of movement.
I may challenge your ideas of what a podiatrist does and you should prepare to undertake change in your day to day life to move better and feel better.
My attention to detail when attending to the maintenance requirements of your feet are second to none. Through years of experience I have refined the technique of relieving the crippling pain of ingrowing toenails. Similarly, the treatment and prevention of the acute ache of a troublesome corn, callous or wart. I love it when your feet feel great after visiting me.
With 20 years experience, you can rest assured I've seen my fair share of feet! Yet my work is continuing to provide me with professional satisfaction on a daily basis.
The past few years have seen big changes for me in methods of practice. Now with a committed approach to natural foot function, returning feet to the way they're designed to move in harmony with the rest of the body.
I am passionate about the barefoot movement and natural footwear, noticing the benefits these approaches can have for clients in what had been a more 'traditional' podiatry setting. I am a forever student of the Foot Nerd Program with The Foot Collective, an international group of health educators focused on better general health outcomes starting with the feet.
In 2021 I hope to help launch Natural Podiatry, a world wide forum for podiatrists who have natural foot function at the centre of their treatment regimes.
And outside of work....
I’m a proud Dad and husband, son and sibling.
Once fiercely competitive, now far more relaxed.
Once a mad runner and then cyclist, now an inspired yogi, weight mover, jogger and kelpie dog walker and always up for 18 holes.
You can find me tending the garden, surfing, playing ping pong, backyard cricket or barefoot hiking. I aspire to having a body and mind open and able to all physical and mental pursuits.
I always had an inkling that educating was what I enjoyed the most about my career and combined with my love for movement and natural living this has given me an immeasurable motivation to help others.
