Elizabeth Lynch

B.Sc(clin) M.HSc (osteo)

Osteopath Elizabeth Lynch is passionate about helping others. With 17 years’ experience in Irish Dance, she is also no stranger to injuries herself. It is this vast experience requiring musculoskeletal treatment, which inspired her to follow a career into the field, “I found Osteopathy treatment made a significant improvement in my own recovery from multiple injuries” says Elizabeth.

This understanding is something she has implemented into her practice today, “Letting people know what to expect from the beginning, and putting a plan in place together, makes all the difference in patient recovery.”

For Elizabeth, the goal is simple, “Keeping people doing what they love!”

Loren Gribble

B.HSc B.As(osteo)

Osteopath Loren Gribble knows that pain can be a frightening experience. “Having the support of someone who can listen and educate you makes a world of difference,” she says. The healing process takes time, so to prevent an injury returning, a combination of hands on treatment is essential, she adds. “Working with a multidisciplinary team means we can achieve great things together. Not everyone will respond to one treatment, so having many options is a huge benefit for patients.”
