• Osteopath

    Osteopathy is “holistic manual medicine” which emphasises the human body’s ability to regulate and repair itself given optimum structure, nutrition and environmental conditions. Developed by a 19th century American physician, Dr Andrew Taylor Still, osteopathy draws strongly from the relationship between our anatomical structure and our physiological function.

  • Massage

    Massage Therapy
    In most cases clients have an immediate improvement in their range of movement and a decrease in pain. It’s quick and easy and our osteopaths often add it to their other treatments to bring about a deeper release.

  • Prescription Molded Orthotics

    Prescription Molded Orthotics
    With approximately 80% of the population suffering from some form of lower limb bio-mechanical dysfunction, there are a multitude of conditions which can result. Often the root causes of such conditions can be found in excessive pronation of the feet.

  • Exercise Prescription

    Exercise Prescription
    Research has shown that back pain, like other pain syndromes, is less likely to recur in patients that have manual / manipulative therapy and prescriptive exercise together compared with control groups that only underwent manipulative treatment or exercise therapy alone.

Vital Lifestyle Centre

Michael Mulholland returns to Sydney in February 2020.

I hope that you have been maintaining your Vital Lifestyle by keeping up regular exercises, eating fresh food and meditating to quieten the busy mind.

The first two and a half months of sabbatical leave were teaching in Europe and Brazil last May-July.
A highlight was helping supervise a community clinic in a rural area of Rio Grande do Sul, South Eastern Brazil. Here in the town of Dom Pedrito, a farming community with little access to allied health care services, 20 advanced students supervised by 7 faculty from Istituto Braziliero de Osteopatia IBO donate their services to treat about 90 patients over a weekend each month. The enthusiasm of the students is contagious and the gratitude from the community was palpable.

sailingOn returning to Sydney, my partner, Gabrielle, and I sailed out of Sydney harbour on July 31, 2019 aboard SN Nanu. Six weeks sailing North covering 1300 nautical miles saw us come ashore in Bowen, Qld. on the Whitsunday coast for a break on land to stretch our sea legs. On the way we were constantly entertained by whales, dolphins, turtles, tropical fish, sting rays, and dugongs.

Setting sail again in November 2019 was perfect timing for Northerly winds to return slowly South. It was very difficult to leave the azure waters of Whitsunday islands and actually head South. Though Hervey Bay, Fraser Island and Moreton Bay are also wonderful marine environments to explore.

Living aboard a yacht is quite active, although it is challenging to get enough aerobic exercise so we take every opportunity to go ashore on beaches and bays to walk, run, swim and stretch. Deck yoga has been our staple exercise. An endless horizon for hours, days and weeks provides spontaneous meditation along the way. The luxury of time was the greatest gift of this adventure.

Returning to Sydney in February I will be available for consultations at rooms in Middle Harbour Yacht Club from February 10 – April 6, 2020. After which I will be away teaching overseas in Europe and London.

Address for February – April is Middle Harbour Yacht Club. 75 Lower Parriwi Rd, Mosman 2088

Appointments can be made online at vitallifestyle.com. Phone appointments can be made on 0435 930 111.

Please note I will NOT be at the old Sydney Road address in Balgowlah.

Are there times when your body lets you know that it needs some help? 
You deserve to get the most out of life and at Vital Lifestyle Centre we can help. Whether you have problems with your feet, muscle or joint pain in the neck, back, limbs, headache or tiredness, fluctuating mood or emotions you don’t need to endure discomfort or distress.

At Vital Lifestyle Centre, we understand the vital relationship between your body’s structure, your nervous and circulatory systems, mood and your total health and wellness.

The Osteopathy, psychology and Massage care that we provide is aimed at restoring balance and function to your whole body and mind, while helping prevent recurrence in order for you to enjoy a Vital Lifestyle.

Often, without you being aware of it, postural and occupational compensations play a role in your discomfort or symptoms and affect your quality of life. Left untreated, this altered function can restrict your mobility, cause further discomfort and even lead to chronic pain and other health complaints. Similarly, avoidance of dealing with stress, anxiety, depression or grief can compound with other symptoms that perpetuate prolonged physical or emotional pain.

A visit to the Vital Lifestyle Centre in Balgowlah could be the answer to finding comfort, freedom, mobility and balance – all of which lead to a better quality of daily life. Don’t suffer silently. Enjoy what you do!
