Kathryn Ashcroft

Masters of Osteopathy (British School of Osteopathy 2012)

Kathryn is an upbeat, perceptive and open person who values the relationship between practitioner and patient as a collaborative partnership to restoring health and wellbeing.

Since graduating in 2012 with a Masters of Osteopathy from the renowned British School of Osteopathy, she continued to support patients as an associate at the school’s clinic in central London and undertook the rigorous process of validation by the Australian and New Zealand Osteopathic Council in order to emigrate to Australia and is now happily an Australian Citizen.

Kathryn has also travelled throughout Asia, volunteering her osteopathic skills to develop and support healthcare in underdeveloped areas. She established an osteopathic clinic in the mountainous Manang District of Nepal, treating musculoskeletal problems and providing general health checks for the local village people.  In India, Kathryn developed a program for expectant mothers to educate women on the physical changes of a normal pregnancy, encouraging active participation in birth planning and a proactive approach to their wellbeing.

She has now settled in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney and, at our Randwick clinic, Kathryn applies osteopathic principles, coupled with her knowledge of anatomy, physiology and functional biomechanics, to understand the root cause of patients’ discomfort. She adopts structural, functional, fascial, visceral and cranial techniques as a whole body approach to facilitating your body’s recovery to balanced health.

Kathryn has focused her post graduate training on understanding how osteopathic treatment can support a healthy pregnancy and the early years of a child’s life.  She has focused on supporting women through their pregnancy, pelvic pain management, management of torticollis and deformational plagiocephaly, tongue tie assessment, child development assessment of primitive reflexes, and paediatric feeding issues.

She is also trained in cranial osteopathy, myofascial release, dry needling, ergonomic assessment, sports strapping, functional biomechanics and gait analysis.

She is registered with AHPRA and is a member of Osteopathy Australia.
