About Dr Alicia
Alicia originally graduated from RMIT University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Movement where she first became interested and exposed to the field of osteopathy. Having been treated herself by Osteopaths she then continued her education at RMIT and graduated in 2006 with a Masters in Osteopathy. Whilst completing her studies Alicia worked for two years as a remedial massage therapist, gaining valuable clinical and hands-on experience in massage therapy.
After several years working in Melbourne, Alicia then moved to Ireland and worked within multiple clinics around the east coast of Ireland. This experience not only exposed Alicia to different styles of osteopathy and a different culture but she also did a lot of travel around Europe.
Alicia has an interest in all types of conditions, in particular patients who have been suffering from neck and low back pain, shoulder, headaches, repetitive strain injuries and arthritic conditions. Her history as an athlete in state and national competitions for volleyball also gives her first hand appreciation of sports injuries. Alicia employs a wide range of techniques, including soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy, dry needling, mobilization, manipulation and exercise advice, with each treatment specifically tailored to your individual needs.
