5 things you didn’t know about Osteopath, Jess Mason

Written by Dean Holzer | 22nd July 2019

1. Jess is one of four Osteopaths in her family

Jess’ older brother and his wife are both Osteopaths, while her younger sister is still studying and will be an Osteopath in 2 years. They all started seeing Osteopaths as teenagers after a variety of sporting injuries and it obviously had a big influence on them all. She also has another brother who is studying psychology.

2. Jess regularly donates blood

Jess has made an incredible 70+ whole blood and plasma donations. She started donating after the Black Saturday bush fires and has never looked back. She aims to donate a few times every year.

3. Jess is adventerous and loves to travel

In 2014, Jess went on an overland trip through Eastern and Southern Africa. She had a lot of adventures including trekking through the jungle in Uganda looking for mountain gorillas, sleeping in the Serengeti with hyenas and lions right outside her tent, swimming in the river at the top of Victoria Falls, and jumping out of a plane over the desert in Namibia. This amazing trip took 2 months and saw her camp from Kenya to South Africa.

4. Jess trained with Circus Oz

Jess spent a long time training as a gymnast and eventually discovered circus classes in her teens. She loved working on the trapeze and aerial silks. This even gave her the opportunity to go backstage at Cirque du Soliel and meet the artists.

5. Jess has a pet Kelpie called Willow

Jess adopted her dog Willow from a rescue organisation 2 years ago. She is super friendly and loves chasing soccer balls at the park.

Jess Mason loves treating a wide range of conditions including:

  • Low back and pelvic pain
  • Lower limb injuries – foot, ankle, and knee pain
  • Neck and upper back pain
  • Pregnancy-related pain
  • Sporting injuries
  • Muscle tightness and stiffness

You can book in online to see her for your next appointment. She can provide a tailored treatment plan and education on prevention strategies for common injuries we see during the colder months.
