Paul’s interest in healthcare began when he was 18 years old and signed up for his first Kung Fu class. After seeing first hand how vitally important exercise, mindfulness and good nutrition was for his health he decided to draw on his experiences and learn how to provide health services to the public. Paul enrolled for a Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy in 2003 and has been immersed in continuing his knowledge and skills as a healthcare provider ever since. For his own personal development and enjoyment, Paul dabbles in a mix of Kung Fu, aerial circus, running and yoga.

Paul began working as a Remedial Massage Therapist in 2005. It was during his time working alongside Osteopaths in a clinic in Sydney’s CBD that he realised how holistic and comprehensive the Osteopathic approach was, and that it had to be the next part of his personal and professional journey. After relocating to Melbourne to study his Bachelor of Science and Master of Health Science at Victoria University, Paul returned to his hometown and has since been practicing at Inner West Osteopathy in Newtown, Sydney. He now joins our team at Bankstown Health and is available for consultation two days during the week.

manipulations and exercise prescription to help restore balance to the body and reduce your
discomfort. By the end of each session with Paul you should have a better understanding of the nature of your condition, how to best manage it and how you can return to a better state of health and well-being.
