Dr. Gayan Amarawardena (Osteopath)

Gayan entered his Osteopathic studies at RMIT from a background in the health sciences, majoring in pharmacology. Gayan believes it was the holistic approach to treatment that really attracted him to osteopathy.

Having such a strong history treating and managing sporting injuries, Gayan knows only too well how complex some conditions can be. Osteopathy offered him a thorough understanding of the working relationship between different structures and tissues within the body.

Gayan continues to hold a special interest in sporting injuries and rehabilitation, and is passionate about optimal nutrition to enhance physical performance.

Gayan leads by example, and regularly attends the gym to maintain his fitness and keep up to date with the most appropriate and safe exercises and activities. Gayan has established a strong following from the young athletic community. Parents of budding athletes are continuously impressed with his extensive sporting knowledge, injury management and the way he relates to our rising stars!

I love that osteopathy creates a relaxed, hands on environment that allows us to really understand and get to know our patients.

Being involved in someone’s journey to better health is what I am passionate about and I believe osteopathy lets me achieve that.

Our perception of pain should not always be seen as something negative. It’s our body’s way of telling us something is wrong and needs to change. Acknowledging it is often the beginning of our journey back to recovery.

Always changes but right now its chilli oil dumplings

On the weekends I like to spend time with my wife whilst trying new places to eat.

Breaking Bad.

Would have to be my Grandfather. As a kid growing up in Sri Lanka he would let me sit in the corner and watch as he treated certain patients as the town GP. He definitely inspired me to go down the path of health.
