• 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.

A refreshing message from Michael Mulholland 18/03/2019

Farewell to all of the wonderful people and families that have been coming to the clinic for over three decades! May 3 will be my last day in the clinic until 2020. Thank you for trusting me to be a part of your health care plan. I hope that you took something away that is enduringly useful for your vital lifestyle. Keep your body active and remember to quieten your mind regularly.

Just like your computer we need to refresh and reboot regularly. That is exactly what I will be doing during the second half of this year, starting with teaching in Europe and Brazil during May and June. Then my partner, Gabriele and I will sail out of Sydney Harbour and turn left aboard SV Nanu! We will cruise the East coast and explore estuaries like the Clarence River and explore the many bays and islands between Sydney and FNQ. Our return south will precede the tropical cyclone season, with a loose return date of early 2020, by which time we should be refreshed and reset, ready for another decade.

When the return to practice date and location is clear I will inform you by email and via the website (which will be refreshed too). The clinic phone will be diverted to a message referring to the website from May 3. Emails to admin@vitallifestyle.com will be responded to as internet access permits. Postal Address is PO Box 799 Balgowlah 2093.

A huge thank-you goes out to Isabel, who has been managing the front office and coping with me over recent years. Some colleagues that you could visit in my absence are:

• Steve Grant in Fairlight: 0430 485 112

• Vanessa malone in St Ives: 8084 0081

• Francois Naef in Avalon: 9918 2288

• Eddie Clark in Ultimo: 1300 067 836

• David Moor in Paddington: 93321677

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!

Call Vital Lifestyle Centre on (02) 9907 6387, or visit us at Suite 12/ 318 Sydney Road, Balgowlah and discover your Vital Lifestyle!
