This empowered him to take control of his health, and subsequently share knowledge and tools to also help others live a happier and healthier life.
Peter graduated from RMIT University with a Masters in Osteopathy in 2007, going on to work in reputable clinics in Australia and around the world. He has also been employed in health education, working as a Clinical Supervisor at Victoria University, Examiner at RMIT University and Lecturer and Clinician at Endeavour College of Natural Health.
Peter was drawn to the natural wonders in the Great Ocean Road region which purify and enrich his wellbeing.
