Dr Jacinta Crawley
Jacinta is a graduate from RMIT (formerly PIT) in the first years of formal Osteopathic university training in Australia. Jacinta completed her degree in 1993 and has been practicing as an osteopath in Ocean Grove for 15 years. In her Osteopathic work Jacinta sees people of all ages but particularly enjoys treating the elderly where the rewards can be so fulfilling. “Enabling someone to continue doing something they love, or just be a little more comfortable every day is great”. Jacinta feels very lucky living and working in such a beautiful place. “I love that I know lots of my patients before I treat them, or their kids go to school with mine. I grew up in a big family in a small farming district, and while I don’t have that now, the Ocean Grove community is a great replacement!” While her background is in Osteopathy, Jacinta’s real satisfaction comes from finding the therapy, advice or exercise that works for every individual – a truly holistic approach in collaboration with Epichealth’s GPs and multidisciplinary team.
