Dr Dale Wilson - Founder & Osteopath
Dale feels like he didn't find Osteopathy, rather it found him, after a chance encounter with a friend. This discovery soon flourished into a love affair that has spanned nearly 20 years of study and treatment. There is a synergy with life when you come across something that resonates and aligns with the core of your being, and this is how Dale feels every day he gets to practice as an Osteopath. Learning the simple yet profound principles for the first time was like meeting a new friend that you instantly felt like you have known forever.
Dale has studied intensively on a post-graduate level with the founder of a Biodynamic approach to Osteopathy in the Cranial Field; Dr James Jealous in the U.S. For Dale, it has been a privilige and an honour in the deepest respect to be exposed to the teachings, mentoring, and experience bestowed through Dr Jealous and his international faculty in the Biodynamic approach. He has completed all 9 phases and 3 'treatment of children' phases, revisiting most courses multiple times.
Dale has spent the last 13 years travelling to and from the U.S. in order to pursue the calling of studying Osteopathy in this specific approach. Osteopathy has been lived into the very fabric of Dale's life, and his commitment to service is at the core of his being. For him, it is a privilige of the highest order to participate in the sacred and intimate exchange that is an Osteopathic treatment.
The treatment of all ages is of equal interest to Dale, and he loves the diversity that presents on a daily basis. He regularly sees the whole family, and cannot bring to words the joy that is felt by having the opportunity to help people in their healing journey.
On a personal level, Dale is a lover of nature, and is completely at ease in the natural world, whether it be in the ocean, or hands in the dirt. So when he is not working he loves nothing more than to spend his spare time outside exploring all that there is to be enjoyed. Living in the forest overlooking the ocean in Skenes Creek, Dale finds himself enamoured with the beauty of it all. Nature is a doorway to Dale's work life, a living presence that he reveres as a great teacher.
Dale's affiliation and love of plants has him growing his own food where possible. Akin to the bush and open spaces, he also loves animals, all shapes and sizes... He and his wife Jackie have 3 chocolate labradors, Freckles, Frankie, and Phoenix. They also have many chickens, and like to spend time with them whenever possible.
