Saul graduated from RMIT University in 2011 after completing a Bachelor and Masters degree in Osteopathy. Since graduating, Saul has gained vast clinical experience and mentoring prior to co-founding Osteopaths of Ivanhoe in 2016 .

Saul’s passion for Osteopathy lies in its ability to address not only a person’s symptoms but to identify the underlying cause of the issue. Saul takes great pride in carefully listening to every patient and establishing their health goals, assessing and diagnosing their presentation and developing a treatment and management plan to ensure great and long lasting outcomes.

Saul enjoys and has broad experience in treating people from all walks of life – from newborns to the elderly, office workers to tradies and weekend warriors to the professional athlete.

Having grown up, attended primary and secondary school in Ivanhoe, Saul understands the local community and is driven to provide the highest standard of health care to both individuals and families within the local areas.

Saul enjoys educating and mentoring his staff and over the last 3 years has also overseen the RMIT University & Victoria University Internship programs at Osteopaths of Ivanhoe.  Outside of the clinic Saul’s passions are being a husband and father, health, fitness & continued education.
