Cotlew St. Osteopathy

A child centered family clinic.

About Clinic

Cotlew St. Osteopathy has been created as a child centered family clinic. There is a second reception area for new mothers to be able to take their time to feed and change their babies pre or post treatment.

This area is filled with an array of toys and books for children and siblings to quietly play. The clinic is light filled and warm. There is parking directly in front and it is pram friendly. The location of the clinic is within the Gold Coast Office Park, a little medical hub. All Osteopathic appointments with Victoria are 40 minutes, which includes a detailed examination and Osteopathic treatment.

At Cotlew St. Osteopathy you can access Osteopathic sessions with a referral from your GP under the Chronic Diseases Management plan (or EPC) for a partial Medicare rebate. You can also book in as a private patient (with no referral) and be eligible for private health rebates.


Osteopathy is a healthcare practice that is hands on. We use movement of the body focusing on joints, muscles, nerves, lymphatics and circulation to help improve the underlying function of the area.

Dr Victoria McLelland

Victoria has been a registered Osteopath in practice on the Gold Coast for 18 years. She has treated thousands of children and their families in a clinical setting from as early as one day old, through to toddlers, adolescences, and pregnant women.

Victoria has a particular interest in treating newborns, children and pregnancy. She regularly maintains a working knowledge of developmental milestones, age specific health checks and attends seminars on the latest research.

Victoria has a referral network in place and works alongside midwives, lactation consultants, dentists, naturopaths, doctors and other health care providers. Treatment involves hands on therapy designed to improve mobility and reduce strain in the body, to help alleviate pain.

There are a range of techniques available to Osteopaths. Victoria does not use any strong manipulation on young children, toddlers or babies. Instead she prefers to work with indirect techniques such as balancing ligaments, cranial techniques, myofascial release and gentle articulation.

Victoria has studied and continues to study Osteopathy in the Cranial Field (OCF) as taught by Dr James Jealous. Biodynamics or OCF is her favorite way to work.
