Stefan Giardini joins the team at CHH as an Osteopath!

21st February 2023

Stefan Giardini joins the team at Canterbury Health Hub after graduating from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy) and a Bachelor of Health Science.

Get to Know Stefan

Stefan moved to Melbourne from Adelaide in 2009 for the bigger city experience. Through his previous career in hospitality and whilst playing state league 4 soccer, he experienced numerous musculoskeletal injuries. Over the period, the treatment obtained from various practitioners was not to his complete satisfaction, until he came across Osteopathy. In a matter of a few months, Stefan was once again able to play sport and work pain-free! This is what inspired him to pursue a more fulfilling career, which led to him acquiring a Diploma of Health Science in mid 2017 at Deakin University, followed by an Osteopathy degree at RMIT.

Stefan is a caring, friendly and dedicated practitioner, who prides himself on his excellent communication skills and concise treatment and management plans. He enjoys educating his patients on their conditions and ways in which to best manage them, towards improved health and wellbeing. He enjoys treating people of all ages, utilising a wide range of osteopathic techniques. He particularly enjoys treating spinal conditions, sports injuries, postural complaints, lower limb conditions (especially foot and ankle) as well as jaw pain. Stefan also has an interest in nutrition and is always willing to research the best dietary requirements for those wanting to dig deeper into their health. Furthermore, as Stefan is intrigued with human movement, he can assist you with a range of strategies and stretches, to help you reach your goals and return to optimal health.

Outside of work, you will find Stefan watching copious amounts of soccer – he is an avid Arsenal and Real Madrid supporter. As part of Stefan’s passion for soccer, he became an accredited Sports trainer for a State League 4th division soccer team, where he currently assists the players with injury management, stretches, exercises and advice.

To keep fit, Stefan loves to dabble in a little kickboxing, martial arts, yoga and high tempo weight-training classes. He is also an absolute coffee and pizza snob, so he is always on the hunt for the best cuppa or slice of pizza!
