Dr. Victoria McLelland (Registered Osteopath)

Victoria joins the ION Osteopaths team at the beginning of 2019, enthusiastic to be treating babies, children and women - including those pregnant mamas out there.

She has spent the last 5 years operating her own business from the My Own Midwife group in Ashmore and has been in private practise on the Gold Coast for the past 14 years. A change to home schooling her son this year has seen Victoria pack up her business and join the team here at ION.

Frequently called a baby whisperer by many, Victoria has treated thousands of children in a clinical setting. 

 

Victoria regularly maintains a working knowledge of developmental milestones, age specific health checks and loves attending seminars on the latest research or information.

You will find her kind, naturally caring and loves a good laugh.

Victoria’s treatment style will reflect the nature of your body and what injuries or birth trauma you or your child has sustained.

 

 

She has a range of techniques from direct (or stronger) muscle energy and soft tissue techniques ie actively working the tissues to help release them; to the indirect methods of unwinding and cranial work (sometimes called cranio-sacral).

 These indirect techniques are Victoria’s favourite and are gentle in touch.

 

Victoria is skilled in the biodynamic field of cranial work
and primarily works in this field with children and babies. She has a referral network in place and where indicated will work alongside midwives, lactation consultants, child health care nurses, dentists, doctors and other health care providers.

 

Victoria has a love of nature and the outdoors and you will frequently find her surfing, painting, playing in nature or dreaming of her next travel destination.
