Kirsty is an experienced practitioner and clinical researcher. Her research focus is on osteopathy and breastfeeding, which fits in perfectly with the ethos of our practice here at Align and Nurture.

She has a huge skillset in treating small infants for breastfeeding and sucking dysfunction. She is a keen advocate for infant health and breastfeeding support and is currently undertaking research with a focus on osteopathy and breastfeeding.

Kirsty also treats toddlers, school aged children, and mums during pregnancy and beyond. She brings years of cranial osteopathy experience with her and uses this approach to treat adults too.

Kirsty takes a unique approach through combined mum and baby osteopathy sessions. She understands that mum and baby are intricately related, and takes into account this special connection to provide hands-on care for you both. Please get in touch with us at the clinic directly for more information or to book this service. 

She sits on the board of ASTOT, the Australasian Society for Tethered Oral Tissues, educating practitioners and the community through evidence based research. Kirsty is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and is a member of Osteopathy Australia.

Appointments with Kirsty are available on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday in Eltham, and Tuesday in Doreen.

Kirsty has recently published research on osteopathy for infant breastfeeding difficulty

Kirsty has recently undertaken clinical research and published a journal article on osteopathic intervention for infants with breastfeeding difficulty.

“This study provides evidence that osteopathic intervention may be capable of delivering benefits in breastfeeding confidence and function. Our results also indicate that osteopathic intervention may benefit mothers at risk of ceasing breastfeeding.”
