Redefining Healing, Rediscovering Health | Elissa O'Brien

  • Nest Coworking 829A High Street Thornbury, VIC, 3071 Australia (map)

"To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease."
– A.T. Still MD, DO Philosophy of Osteopathy

What is our current collective story of how we recover from disease or trauma (suffering)?
How do we treat ourselves when we feel stressed, overwhelmed or broken?
How can we find wellness once more when it may seem like our light has gone out?

Elissa O'Brien is an Osteopath with over 20 years experience. She’s uses her understanding of osteopathic principles to align people with their own inherent healing capacity. Elissa will speak about her lifelong observations of the suffering in those around her, the experience of being asked to focus on the disease expression in her patients through her medical training and the process of regaining her trust that health is a natural state.

Elissa finds it imperative that patients are educated about self care so that they are able to navigate the complexities of our current medical system and find their own unique system that supports healthy living.
