Visiting Eudlo village for the first time? GPS seems often unreliable in this area. The office is at our home property, Coonoona Nature Refuge, in West Eudlo.
During usual annual flood times, the approaches to West Eudlo can become impassable, as the railway underpasses at Palmwoods, Eudlo and Mooloolah tend to go under for a least a few hours. The approach to Coonoona Nature Refuge is also cut, with fast flood water a meter deep over a culvert. Waters can rise quickly. If in doubt, call ahead. We will usually call you if the road is known to be out.

History of Osteopathy
Osteopathy was developed in the 1870s in the Kansas- Missouri area by Dr Andrew Taylor Still. The first school opened in 1892 at Kirksville Missouri. It continues today as A.T. Still University. Doctor Still had well founded criticism of the medical system of that day and sought to shift health care towards greater recognition of host factors in health and disease. He stressed the relationship of body mechanics to health. His insight was the interaction between structure and function and the potential for altered or impaired body mechanics to affect things such as local circulation and so impair our health, resistance to disease and capacity to recover. Still set up a philosophy of health care that stressed taking detailed note of body mechanics in the context of the patient’s health and developing procedures to restore normal function. A wide variety of techniques have been developed for application to various types of dysfunction in various age groups and states of health.
