Our Osteopathic Practitioners
- On Maternity Leave 2023
As a kid I marvelled at the wondrous work of our family osteopath Terrance Vardy, when accompanying my mom to her osteopathy appointments. How a headache suddenly gone, how that sore spot wasn't so sore anymore. Curiosity got the better of me and I found myself graduating with a Masters Of Osteopathic Medicine in Australia.
Shortly after graduating I moved to Canada to marry my soul mate and began the journey of opening Elements Osteopathy for the Victoria, BC community.
Treating health problems at the root cause is a foundational element to the practice of osteopathy. The holistic approach to treatment is refreshing, simple, and effective. My patients are my life and I love getting to understand someone's difficulties and being able to help them.
Getting you back to what you love in a natural and effective way is my mission and I can't wait to help you get there.
Everybody has a story to tell about pain, often it's paralysing and adversely impacting our everyday lives. I help people return to what they love doing, pain-free and with total confidence.
My name is Courtney Osborne and I am an Osteopathic Practitioner from the East Coast of Australia. I specialise in hands-on treatment and individualised exercise rehabilitation, and strive to uphold the high esteem and quality of care that Elements Osteopathy provides.
I endeavour to share the knowledge I have gained from Osteopathy and additional courses, training and expeditions in health, paediatrics and Pilates to get you on the path to recovery.
