Outside of work Mick likes to try his hand in several sports, basketball, surfing, rugby, soccer, wake-boarding, snowboarding and competing in the odd multisport event/triathlon - ranging from sprint distance to Ironman.

Lacey Barnett BAppSci, MOst
I enjoy participating in a range of hobbies & sports, including mountain biking, snowboarding, surfing, trail running, weight training and CrossFit to maintain both physical and mental health and to practice what I preach. I have completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (human biology) and Master of osteopathy.
From a young age, I developed a passion for the human body and mind. Helping others has also been something that gives me great joy, so naturally, the role of a therapist suited me well. Of all the therapies, I found osteopathy was the more holistic approach that leads to healing both the body and, in consequence, the mind because, in my opinion, they are both deeply related.
For a better understanding of how the mind works, I have studied meditation, with over 100 days of meditation retreats behind me. I also experimented with different mind based therapies that add to my practice a broader understanding of the patient's complaints and helps me to optimize the healing process. I specialize in cranial, functional, and fascial osteopathy and look forward to helping you heal.
Outside of work, I enjoy hobbies such as rock-climbing, dancing, and tennis, which was a big part of my life growing up in Paris. I also love being in nature, especially hiking or cycling.
