Osteopath (Infants and children)

Joannne Burrows

Bachelor of Clinical Science
Masters in Heath Science (Osteo)

The best way to establish Jo’s reputation treating infants and children in this region is to walk past a mothers group having a coffee catch up and drop her name.

Read more

Jo has devoted many hours of postgraduate study to the understanding of babies and children, and the role that Osteopathy can play in helping them to grow into healthy human beings. In that time, she has also managed to have 3 beautiful children of her own, who ensure that her learning is never complete!

The style of Osteopathic treatment Jo uses in paediatrics (Biodynamic Osteopathy) is aimed at addressing some of the musculoskeletal effects that the birth process or other early life stresses can have on the developing systems of infants and children. Parents enjoy watching their child visibly relax under Jo’s gentle hands and Jo finds her work in this field extremely rewarding.

always create lots of discussion. Keep this in mind if looking for an ‘ice breaker’ with him.

Stephanie Cations

Bachelor of Applied Science (CompMed)
Masters in Osteopathy

Steph returned to Procare in early 2019 from Maternity leave.

Some things had changed.

Read more

Like instead of discussing how the Tigers are going at lunchtime, she would be in a room pumping milk out of herself.

But most things hadn’t changed.
Like her ability as an osteopath. With her range of techniques built on 7 years experience that help her to understand what will work when for who!

And her relaxed, get-on-with-anyone, country girl style will never change.

Steph is back! We are rapt about that, as many of you will be!

Steph started with us in 2012 and with her enthusiasm to learn, it has been a pleasure to watch her develop into the quality professional she is today.

Matthew Jakovljevic

Bachelor of Clinical Science
Masters in Heath Science (Osteo)

Matt’s interest in the human body and osteopathy began as an adolescent searching for the answers to his own back pain. He understands what it is like to be in ongoing pain and what it takes to overcome it.

Read more

Matt has strong hands on skills combined with a streak of nerdiness – in his final year of university in 2013, Matt’s outstanding performance was recognised by receiving the esteemed COCA (Chiropractic Osteopathic College of Australasia) award for the top graduating student.

Prior to joining Procare, Matt gathered 4 years clinical experience in private practice in Melton and Bacchus Marsh.
Matt is into hiking, bodyboarding and photography.

And once ate his lunch at work with chopsticks even though no one was watching! #cultured

Osteopath and Movement Consultant

Grant Burrows

Bachelor of Clinical Science
Masters in Health Science (Osteopathy)
Fellow of Applied Functional Science (Gray Institute)

Grant graduated in Melbourne as an Osteopath in 2000.

Over the next 15 years he worked in private practice – both in Australia and in London, lectured Osteopathic students at the university and did extensive further training in the US during 2011 and 2013 in the area of Movement and Pain.

Read more

Grant and his wife Jo also opened Procare Sports & Spinal (now Procare Geelong) in 2006, which they still take great pride in being part of.

In 2017 Grant opened ProMotion. ProMotion naturally reflects Grants’ personality. Programs are built with authenticity and with a genuine care and interest in people. The Programs demand you to be accountable in engaging, and demands Grant be accountable to guiding you to improvement and a better life.
When Grant is not devising Movement or Pain programs, he is busy with his family including 3 young kids.

In any spare time, Grant likes to be active and is currently hanging on to any last glimpses of athleticism in AFL 9s, gym, running and yoga.

Grant also likes to make announcements. And will be forever remembered (by a some) as the unluckiest Field Host ever at GMHBA stadium. He was doing some crisp jokes out on the ground when all the grandstands were being rebuilt, and his jokes, along with later his media career wafted down Moorabool St through the gaps in the grandstands.

Practice Manager

Catherine Moore

Catherine joined Procare in 2015. Catherine comes with a wealth of medical administration and management experience.

She is very efficient and organised. When ringing around her referees after interviewing Catherine, one told me “she ll organise your life if you want her to”. That had and still has great appeal.

Read more

Catherine drives from Colac to work with us 4 days a week. We are still unsure why she does this, but we are very pleased that she does.

Catherine has been heavily involved in netball at club level and with the umpires association.

We hope Catherine will continue to get in her chariot from Colac for some time yet as she adds another dimension to the Procare Team.


Caroline Poulter

Caroline joined Procare Geelong in 2012.

She comes from a hairdressing background with some administrative work in real estate more recently.

It should come as no surprise that the hairdresser/real estate combo means that Caz is not short of a word.

Read more

And like any good hairdresser she has the incredible skill of getting people to want to tell her all their ‘goss’.

Caroline left Procare Geelong briefly in 2014 as she was doing a renovation, and at times, she seemed to think she was on The Block.

Thankfully she returned after the renovation was complete, as we really enjoy “Caz” being part of our team.

Caroline is married with a school aged son and works with us on a part time basis.


Paige Seaton

Our current group at Procare is experienced – which means older! We now have no one under 30!

So for our latest part time reception position we thought – “lets grab a uni student – a real smart one!”

Read more

And Paige was what we found.
Studying Law and being a GDFL netball identity she has brains and sporting ability.

She is from Wodonga or as I have learnt from Paige: it is called “Woo Town”.
You too can learn such facts if you come in on a Friday when Paige is working!

We believe in the importance of building a plan personalised for you, because this gives you the best chance of a successful outcome.

The Procare team work initially with a strong focus on “hands on” therapy to help you out of pain, including soft tissue massage, joint articulation/ manipulation and dry needling.

Osteopathy in Infants and Children

The best way to establish our osteopath Jo’s reputation treating infants and children in this region is to walk past a mothers group having a coffee catch up and drop her name.

Jo has devoted many hours of postgraduate study to the understanding of babies and children, the style of Osteopathic treatment Jo uses in paediatrics (Biodynamic Osteopathy) is aimed at addressing some of the musculoskeletal effects that the birth process or other early life stresses can have on the developing systems of infants and children.


Myotherapy focuses on the muscles to assess, treat and rehabilitate a particular musculoskeletal discomfort, pain or pathology using a  palpation assessment, dry needling , myofascial cupping, positional release , tens machine etc.

Remedial massage is more broad base and focuses on addressing dozens of minor issues through the medium of massage and trigger point therapies.

Shanti’s treatments are usually a combination of the two, myotherapy focus but with the calming influence of the remedial massage.

Myotherapy and osteopathy compliment each other well by focusing on the same issues from different angles and many clients find the variety of treatment’s very satisfying.


Our experienced and skillful team are experts at offering relief from all muscle and skeletal injuries including back pain, neck pain, jaw pain, tendon pain, as well as helping with various sports injuries.

We will also give you exercises and ergonomic advice to try and keep you out of pain. We believe that helping you stay out of pain is as much our responsibility as navigating you out of a painful episode.

Along with complementary streams of treatment within our practice, we also have a network of other professionals to help us formulate the best plan for you.
