About me - Jarrod Russell
My osteopathic education comprised of the completion of full-time osteopathic study over 5 years in the University of Western Sydney in Australia in 2004.
Since 2011 I have been living in Germany after moving to Düsseldorf with my children and German wife. Prior to this period I had previously spent time working in some leading osteopathic clinics in Australia where I had the opportunity of working alongside and learning from very experienced osteopathic colleagues. During this time, I also had a short stint of previously working and living in the Netherlands. After experiencing different osteopathic approaches in various osteopathic clinics, I quite often became frustrated that on occasions Osteopathy alone didn’t always bring me the results that I was expecting, in particularly when chronic postural problems were underlying the patients pain. As a result of this, I expanded my knowledge into rehabilitative Pilates in combination with Osteopathy, of which, is commonly used in many leading Australian and American Osteopathy and Physiotherapy clinics.
Additionally, between 2009-2011 I was also involved in working as a Clinician overseeing osteopathic treatments undertaken by osteopathic students within the student osteopathic teaching clinic in the Victoria University in Melbourne. In 2010 I successfully passed the Heilpraktiker examination in Solingen Germany, thereby allowing me to work as an Osteopath in Germany.
