Staff Profiles

Paul Dockeary 

Naturopath, Remedial Massage Therapist Memb. ANTA

After working in many diverse clinics around Melbourne, Paul established BodyActive Therapies in 1998 with the intent of providing high quality natural health care in a relaxed and welcoming environment. 

His belief is that to get the most out of any health treatment a person needs to feel at ease in their surroundings and treated as a guest not a client.

That is how he hopes you will feel when you first arrive at BodyActive along with receiving a high degree of professional attention and care. 

Paul currently divides his time between clinic manager and therapist.
