Lara’s practice is friendly and person-centred. An initial consult involves taking a medical history and performing an osteopathic examination, before offering a diagnosis and treatment. Lara ensures that both short and long-term goals are achieved by discussing a treatment plan with her patient.

She draws on her experience, skilled evaluation, diagnosis and hands-on techniques to identify important dysfunction in the body and to establish the root cause of a patient’s problem.
