Dr Michelle Davids
Michelle is our South African born, British-trained Osteopath. She studied at The British School of Osteopathy in London, receiving the prestigious Masters of Osteopathy (M.Ost) degree in 2012. She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology (B.ScHons) from the University of Birmingham. Michelle’s extensive training leads to a thorough and personalised approach to her patients as they return to their peak.
After working for a few years in London and Nottingham, Michelle moved to Melbourne in 2015. She has been working in Hawthorn ever since and loves the sense of community. Michelle is friendly and approachable and enjoys treating people of all ages and backgrounds. She is trained in both structural and cranial osteopathy allowing her to use a range of hands-on techniques in order to treat a variety of ailments and health complaints.
She has a strong interest in treating back, neck and jaw complaints, as well as headaches. Michelle also enjoys and is experienced in treating babies, children and women pre and post pregnancy. She has trained and worked with a number of renowned paediatric and obstetric osteopaths and works closely with lactation consultants and midwives.
Michelle believes that the body, given the correct resources, has an astonishing capacity for self-healing, thus the focus of each of her treatments is to help facilitate these innate healing mechanisms. Outside of the clinic Michelle can be found experimenting with gluten-free baking, travelling and being active (biking, hiking, walking, yoga) in the sunshine!
