New Patients

Welcome to North Canberra Osteo!

Osteopathy is a manual therapy and involves ‘hands on’ treatment. We recommend you wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes. Treatment gowns are available at the clinic.

Please email us or bring any relevant scans and lab results.

For babies: We have lots of techniques we use during a paediatric consult to relax and reassure our little patients, but of course it can be a bit strange for them to have a new person in their space. We’ve found it really helps to have the primary carer present for the consult. For babies who are bottle fed, please bring a bottle along with you and if possible schedule their feed for during the appointment. If you child uses a dummy, please bring it along. For toddlers, please bring in their favourite toy and some snacks. Kindy and school age kids often love listening to a book during their treatment.

We regret that we are not currently taking on new Workcover, DVA or TAC patients. If you have a Chronic Disease Management form from your GP we charge the normal fee at the time of the consult and provide a receipt for you to claim with Medicare.

Do you want to bring your baby in for Osteo, but can’t afford the fees?
Please talk to us. It’s a joy and an honour to provide care for babies that have had difficult births, and we see all the time what a difference manual therapy can make. Make our day and let us help.

Once you have booked in with us you’ll be sent a confirmation, and a link to our new patient form via sms. If you’d like to fill it out on your computer, the links are below. We also have tablets at the clinic if you’d rather come in a few minutes early and fill it out there.
