Open since 2010
We opened the doors to Spring Osteo Clinic in January 2010. We saw an opportunity to apply our osteopathic passion in a professional, inspiring and friendly clinic. Soon we recognised that complimentary disciplines would assist you so remedial massage, exercise physiology and Pilates were slowly introduced.
Nick and Catherine had a vision to use Nick’s osteopathic skills and Catherine’s business skills to establish an Allied Health clinic in Surrey Hills. In the early years Catherine worked full-time in her corporate marketing role and devoted her nights to Spring Osteo and Nick worked in two well established Melbourne osteopath clinics whilst also subleasing a room in Canterbury Road and steadily building up to working full time in Spring Osteo.
Nick was inspired to start Spring Osteo by his Poppy who was a local GP in Box Hill; his mum who is a physio and his dad who also ran his own business. He has been around health care and small businesses his whole life so it was a natural option for him. He chose osteopathy to combine his love for sport and managing sports injuries; his natural ability to assist and inspire people to live healthy and happy lives; and his want for a job that would give him the flexibility to be around his family and enjoy his kids while they are growing up.
Catherine worked for over ten years in B2B and B2C corporate marketing roles before setting up Spring Osteo with Nick. In 2018 Catherine completed an 18 month Cert IV and Diploma in Clinical Pilates. When she is not working behind the scenes you can join her in her Studio Pilates classes. Catherine finds the combination of Pilates and running the business is perfect for her. She is able to develop great relationships and see rewarding results with her clients whilst also enjoying her passion for running the small business.
