About Denise


Denise is an osteopath and physiotherapist with extensive clinical experience and involvement with osteopathic education. Currently, she works in private practice in 3 locations: Eltham, Mernda, and Humevale. Working with people with chronic pain or recovering from trauma or life stresses has guided Denise toward integrating additional self-empowering strategies into her treatment approaches; this includes Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) and Equine Experiential Learning (EEL) (see HorseTime below).

Horses have been an important part of Denise’s life since childhood and she shares her property at Humevale with a herd of 6 horses. Growing awareness of horse-human interaction and the role that horses can play in the healing process has led Denise to incorporate EEL into her practice approach. Osteopathy, TRE, and EEL follow a trauma-informed physiological base and each therapeutic approach is tailored to individual needs. Find out more…
