Janine Symington

Registered Osteopath

I have has previously worked for 7 years in Tasmania working in a busy practice, treating everything from arthritis, sports injuries, headaches and workplace injuries to paediatrics and pregnancy issues.

In 2015, I worked for two months in Chinese hospitals, along with Australian midwives and maternal health practitioners, teaching Chinese nurses how to deal with women’s health issues, an area where I have a keen interest.

I love getting to know families and the local community as I practice. It’s always fun when you are treating all three generations and getting to know an entire family.

In my spare time I enjoy good food, coffee and spending time at the beach walking my dogs or competing in surf boat rowing.
