Member of Osteopathy Australia
Dr Wei Yng Chua graduated with a Master in Osteopathy from RMIT University in 2009. Since graduating, the majority of her postgraduate training has been in Biodynamic cranial osteopathy. Wei has completed Phase 1 - 9 as well as Pediatrics 1 - 2. She has also started to expand her interest in traditional osteopathic techniques by studying visceral osteopathy (Visceral Manipulation 1, Urogenital training).
Wei has been practising osteopathy for 10 years, in Australia and Singapore. In that time, she counts herself lucky to have been mentored by senior osteopaths Dr Margaret Matthews and Dr Elissa O'Brien.
Wei has an interest in applying the gentler cranial osteopathic techniques which is suited for all ages or complex conditions. She is passionate about getting people better– especially small people with big personalities!
Wei says, "Taking time out to listen to birdsong lets us pause, take a break and remind ourselves of our connection to nature. In a similar way, osteopathic techniques can help to connect a patient to their original state of health. At Songbird Osteopathy, the patient’s health comes first."
Wei also treats from Inner West Health Clinic in Seddon on Tuesdays and Friday mornings. She has been teaching and supervising osteopathy students at RMIT University since 2014.
In her spare time, Wei enjoys knitting and cooking. She keeps active with jogging, bouldering and has a nidan in the Japanese martial art aikido.
