Dr George Stylian- Osteopath
Dr George Stylian I've been practising Osteopathy for more than 31 years and specialise in Cranial Osteopathy because of the benefits that can be achieved with very little risk of trauma to patients, both young and old. The benefits of Cranial Osteopathy are prolonged and the body is given a guiding hand in helping itself resolve the physical patterns formed by injury, disease and trauma. I sometimes like to use the other modalities I’m qualified in, such as Naturopathy, Botanical Medicine and Bach Flower Therapy, to complement this specialty. I love my work and I’m always trying to learn more to help my patients feel healthier and happier. The body's ability to heal itself is amazing and I have faith in our inherent potency that guides the healing process. For this reason, challenging cases are often referred to me by colleagues practicing in other clinics. I graduated from the British College of Naturopathy & Osteopathy in 1980. After returning to Sydney I started private practice in Caringbah, whilst teaching at private osteopathic colleges in Sydney. I co-founded the Pacific College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1983 and taught at the International College of Osteopathy, which awarded me in appreciation with a Fellowship in the Science of Osteopathy. I started formal training in Cranial Osteopathy in 1989. After completing courses with the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation of Australia & New Zealand (SCTF of ANZ) and postgraduate studies in Osteopathic Paediatrics (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, 1992-1994), I became a faculty member teaching Cranial Osteopathy to other osteopaths in 1995. My roles in the SCTF of ANZ have been Faculty Secretary, Board Secretary, Board Vice-President, Course Co-ordinator and Course Director. Currently, I'm an honorary board member and an active faculty member of the SCTF of ANZ, dedicated to ongoing professional development.
