Laura Malady - osteopath
One of Laura’s great passions is the joy she experiences whilst trail running. Initially, her goal was to run continuously for 20 minutes. This then grew to 5km, then to 10kms and so on. Completing a 50-kilometre ultra-run in 2017 was symbolic for Laura. She understands that positive steps towards change can be made, how to go about it and how to help her patients do the same.
Laura also enjoys spending her time swimming, cycling, hiking & participating in triathlons. She starts most mornings with a daily yoga practice and meditation. This habit has developed over the past 2 years whilst undertaking further studies to become a yoga teacher. From participating in this wide range of activities, Laura has developed a comprehensive understanding of human movement and ways to focus the mind. As a result, Laura is a resilient, positive practitioner who is always present & eager to help.
Xavier Grech - osteopath
Each summer holiday whilst growing up, Xavier helped make pool tables for his family company. All of the time spent using his hands has helped him develop some finesse with his hands-on skills as an osteopath. Xavier achieved a high-distinction grade average through his 5-year osteopathy degree and was awarded dux in the final two years.
Xavier keeps very active. He’s been involved in rock climbing, body-weight & weights-training, jiu jitsu, basketball, football, sprinting, trail running & worked as a pilates instructor. Xavier has also previously completed a Bachelor of Psychology. This experience has given Xavier a very inclusive understanding of the way people move, behave and function.
Michelle Dimech - receptionist
Michelle handles phone calls and enquiries, working as an off-site receptionist & clerical aid. Michelle’s skills have been developed from years spent managing numerous small businesses.
Over the past two years Michelle has taken on her most challenging role yet, as a mother. With her husband Adam, they are raising a bright and fun-loving daughter, named Ellie. Michelle enjoys sharing her passion for gardening, cooking and reading with Ellie. She recognises the importance of saving some time for herself, including taking time out for a regular yoga and pilate’s practice.
Michelle’s contribution allows Laura and Xavier to spend more time helping patients & working on their osteopathic skills. We greatly appreciate her contribution to our practice.
Sarah Nugent - osteopath
Sarah has been an osteopath since 2013. While completing her studies of Osteopathy she developed a passion for not only health but also education. She wanted to ensure that everyone could have the tools to help heal and live their own healthiest life. This passion led her to volunteer in Africa where she assisted physiotherapists in treating clients in hospital, as well as teaching osteopathic techniques and philosophy. Sarah believes that the more that one can understand about the human body the more that one can live a happier and healthier life.
Sarah recently returned from spending the last two years in Toronto, Canada. She worked as an osteopath, treating some of the top Canadian athletes & alongside a range of other health disciplinaries. Sarah has moved out to the South Gippsland as has had enough of the big smoke and has missed the feeling of grass between her toes. With a love of adventure and being amongst nature Sarah hopes to explore and experience the best of the Prom Country life.
We have helped people of all ages and all walks of life.
