Dr Piers Bubbers

Registered Osteopath

Piers came to Osteopathy after completing a Science degree at Monash University and then traveling the world and living in far flung places. He studied Osteopathic medicine at RMIT University Melbourne, graduating in 2009. For the first 2 years he worked on the North Island of New Zealand with one of the best Osteopaths in NZ. He returned home to get married and establish a practice in Melbourne. 2017 marked the year of big change, with his second daughter being born and moving to the surf coast to set up family life.

Bachelor of Science (1997 Monash University)

Piers considers himself lucky to have found Osteopathy as a profession. At the age of 27 he was travelling in India when a man came out of the shadows and asked him his age. That man said to him “Its time you went home and do what you are meant to do in life”. Two days later he was on a plane home and had met someone who was studying Osteopathy. The rest is history.

It has opened up a lifetime pathway of learning about the body and of self development. Constantly questioning why is it so? And seeking explanation. Relishing thrilling moments when a patient moves out of their long held pain pattern and realises that they are not going to live in pain for the rest of their life.

Piers’ treatment style is eclectic, individualised and gentle, facilitating change in an open and supported environment with good communication. In each treatment he will clearly identify the cause of an issue and work both globally and locally to find a logical solution. His approach to Osteopathy has been influenced by more than a decade of yoga and meditation practice and a curiosity for all things philosophical.

Piers has developed a particular skill in the treatment and management of complex injuries especially of the pelvis, neck, shoulder, foot and arm.

When Piers is not working at Sequence Osteopathy you can find him spending time with his young family, bodysurfing, walking the dog, bodysurfing, tending the veggie patch or bodysurfing. And when everything is quiet and he’s staring off into the distance he probably thinking about bodysurfing!
