Tension Headaches Sydney


For compassionate and comprehensive treatment options for tension headaches, Sydney residents can visit OsteoLife.

Founded and operated by Dr. Valerie Johnston-Dugamin, OsteoLife is a local clinic which provides patients with tailored treatment plans that aim to improve their overall health and wellbeing.

Tension headaches can be caused by a number of factors, such as a poor sitting posture at work, bright lights and loud, aggressive noises or even stress and anxiety. These common and frustrating headaches affect people in different ways, but can be quite uncomfortable or debilitating for many individuals.

Osteopathy has helped many patients find relief from their tension headaches, using the core principles of the practice to support and promote the body’s own self-healing abilities, with a focus on treating the patient holistically.

For more information on OsetoLife’s available treatment plans for tension headaches, Potts Point locals, and residents across Sydney’s many suburbs can call today.
