The founder of Centre Of Health, Matt Radford is a Physiotherapist, Acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor with 30+ years of clinical experience.

Matt’s lifelong passion for healthcare led him to study many different forms of medicine and healing, both “mainstream” and “alternative”. This search for natural ways to help people with natural medicine has led him all around the world. From working as a graduate physio at Warnambool Base Hospital to the busy public hospitals of London, alongside Medicins Sans Frontieres in Romanian orphanages, practicing Shiatsu in Byron Bay, to working with top Chinese Medicine doctors in Nanjing University TCM Hospital China.

This range of qualifications enable his patients to access unique solutions for a comprehensive range of acute and chronic health problems. His practice extends to treating families, elite athletes, professional dancers, acrobats and performers, fellow health practitioners, ‘office’ workers, oncology patients, many young children and teenagers, students and the elderly.

Matt has worked and studied in China, and has lectured at RMIT University, Melbourne University, Southern School of Natural Therapies and also provides student placements and mentoring. He was one of the first Physios in Australia to incorporate Pilates into treatment, working with the founder of Clinical Pilates Craig Philips at Dance Medicine Australia back in the early 90’s.

More recently, Matt has trained as a Certified Instructor in the ground breaking Wim Hof Method breathing technique which he practices daily and shares with patients.

It is this blend of East and West, of ancient Chinese Medicine with modern sports physio techniques, and healing practices from Yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates, that makes his treatment approach so effective. If you are looking for a really unique holistic approach to your health, then Matt can help you.
