About us

Nillumbik Osteopathic Health Centre is a dedicated osteopathic clinic based in Melbourne’s North Eastern suburb of Eltham. The clinic has been operating for more than 16 years and is affiliated with Dynamic Health Osteopathy in Greensborough.

Our team of highly trained osteopaths are all university qualified (completing a minimum of 5 years study) with extensive clinical experience. And being primary healthcare practitioners, our osteopaths are trained to recognise and diagnose conditions that require medical referral. As well as being government registered practitioners with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and members of Osteopathy Australia, all our practitioners are fully insured.
