George Stylian has been practising Osteopathy for more than 31 years and has been dedicated to Osteopathy in the Cranial Field since 1989. He loves the benefits that Cranial Osteopathy can achieve with very little risk of trauma to patients, both young and old.
The benefits of Cranial Osteopathy are prolonged and the body is given a guiding hand in helping itself resolve the physical patterns formed by injury, disease and trauma. George has moved to Byron Bay but likes to come to the clinic once a month to treat and interact with patients. Dr Kathryn Tupper (link to her please) has worked and studied closely with Dr George Stylian for the past 15 years which is why Kathy has now taken over the clinic and has been entrusted to continue his legacy and commitment to Osteopathy in the Cranial Field and patients in Miranda, the Sutherland Shire and many patients beyond who sometimes travel quite a distance for treatment. George sometimes likes to use the other modalities he is also qualified in, such as Naturopathy, Botanical Medicine and Bach Flower Therapy, to complement this specialty.
He loves his work and is always trying to learn more to help patients feel healthier and happier. The body’s ability to heal itself is amazing and he has faith in our inherent potency that guides the healing process.
For this reason, challenging cases are often referred by colleagues practicing in other clinics. George graduated from the British College of Naturopathy & Osteopathy in 1980. After returning to Sydney he started private practice in Caringbah, whilst teaching at private osteopathic colleges in Sydney.
He co-founded the Pacific College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1983 and taught at the International College of Osteopathy, for which he was awarded in appreciation a Fellowship in the Science of Osteopathy. He started formal training in Cranial Osteopathy in 1989.
After completing courses with the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation of Australia & New Zealand (SCTF of ANZ) and postgraduate studies in Osteopathic Paediatrics (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, 1992-1994), George became a faculty member teaching Cranial Osteopathy to other osteopaths in 1995. His roles in the SCTF of ANZ have been Faculty Secretary, Board Secretary, Board Vice-President, Course Coordinator and Course Director. Currently, an honorary board member and an active faculty member of the SCTF of ANZ, dedicated to ongoing professional development.
