Dr Nicole Bates
She took her ﬁrst associate position in Cairns, QLD. Being the only female osteopath and one of only 2 osteopaths in a town of 130,000, Nicole was exposed to a diverse cross section of the community and gained strong structural foundations on which to build her skills.
Over the past 12+ years of practice working all around Australia and alongside some of the most highly regarded osteopaths, Nicole has had many experiences which have shaped her practice of Osteopathy to what it is today. Whilst still having a strong structural foundation to treatment, Nicole has also continued professional development in cranial and Biodynamic ﬁelds of osteopathy. Her treatments vary for each and every patient. No two bodies are the same, so why should their treatments be the same?
An osteopath aims to ﬁnd and restore the health of a patient, then the patients own self healing and self regulatory mechanisms will be better placed to continue one’s healing. Nicole is a very passionate, yet direct practitioner, who prides herself on helping people reconnect to their health, and empower them to live healthier, more active and enjoyable lives.

Thomas graduated from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy) double degree.
Thomas has always been interested in manual therapy and was first introduced to osteopathy as a teenager, when he accompanied his mum to an appointment following a serious car accident. After seeing the impressive results from the osteopathic approach and hands on treatment, he decided that osteopathy was the field in which he wanted to study and work in.
Thomas graduated from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy) double degree. He treats primarily with a direct, structural approach and strives to return patients to their pre-injury activities and optimal health.
Thomas enjoys treating a range of conditions and has a keen interest in headaches, and sports injuries having worked with a football club for the previous two years treating and managing sports injuries.
Originally hailing from a small town outside of Hobart, Thomas has a love of the outdoors, so when not in the clinic you will find him hiking and exploring nature. He is also a keen musician and spends a lot of his down time unwinding by playing the guitar and piano.
