Rachimah completed a Bachelor of Applied Science in Complimentary Medicine (Osteopathy) and a Masters in Osteopathy at RMIT University. She also has over 8 years’ experience working as a masseuse prior to becoming an Osteopath.
She is currently on maternity leave and hopefully look forward to seeing her back at the clinic in 2016.
Rachimah has completed a number of post-graduate courses in Cranial Osteopathy and enjoyed sharing her osteopathic knowledge when she was employed as an assistant lecturer at RMIT for osteopathic palpation.
She provides a holistic approach, playing an active role in patient education to assist with managing pain and injuries, combining osteopathic treatment with exercises and dietary advice. Rachimah enjoys treating a wide variety of complaints using a combination of cranial and structural techniques, as well as looking into postural and ergonomic factors. This is further assisted by her knowledge of Postural Control Insoles, which allows her to prescribe a foot insert designed to improve not only foot function but to address postural complaints and musculoskeletal pain. She works to find the source of problem so that a course of treatment can be devised to prevent reoccurrence as well relieving presenting symptoms.
Rachimah has developed a special interest in treating people with digestive problems, menstrual cycle issues, musculoskeletal pain and pregnancy discomfort. Her gentle approach is suitable for all ages and injuries with a focus on restoring optimal health and well-being.
Rachimah is dedicated to using an integrated approach, working with her patients’ consultants, obstetricians and GPs to enable patients to have the best all round care. She believes that the human body has a huge natural potential for healing, which can be stimulated by implementing osteopathic treatment.
Rachimah is a member of the Australian Osteopathic Association. When not treating patients or completing further study in the science of osteopathy, Rachimah enjoys spending time bush walking in the Dandenong ranges, rock climbing, camping, catching up with friends and family, and the exciting journey of motherhood.
