We combine modern evidence based treatment with a holistic approach at all times.

Our Mission

Our Mission Statement represents our commitment to you as the patient but also the attitude and philosophy that underpins all of our decisions, advice giving and approaches as educated clinicians but also as caring and empathetic individuals.

“At Active Osteopathy-PerthSportsPodiatry we take our role as Primary/Allied Health Practitioners seriously and embrace the responsibility that comes with it. We will advise you and treat you according to best practice and within our scope of expertise/training. We will not over-service you when that is not in your best interest nor of added benefit to the complaint being addressed. In fact, we commit to assisting you through clinical care but also education and advice enabling you to self-help and avoid becoming dependant on clinical treatment.”

Osteopath and Myotherapist

Dr J’aime Barry

J’aime graduated as an Osteopath from Victoria University with a doubledegree of Bachelor of Science (Clinical Science)(2010) and Masters of Health Science (Osteopathy)(2012). This qualification compliments her original clinical qualification and experience as a Myotherapist (since 2005).

Since graduating J’aime has worked in Melbourne, Bendigo, Canberra and now in Perth. She has worked with Football & Netball Clubs, most notably Hawthorn Football Club and Carlton Football Club assisting them with injury assessment, management and rehabilitation.

J’aime takes time to listen to what her patient’s concerns are and undertakes careful assessments aimed at finding dysfunction, weakness and restriction that are limiting the body’s ability to recover.

Outside of treating patients J’aime loves to spend time with family and friends, loves cooking, travels regularly and is learning to use her camera!

Nikela Coulter


Dr Nikela Coulter

Originally from a small country town in NSW, Nikela grew up with a very active lifestyle playing netball and swimming. Her own injuries eventually lead her towards osteopathy. Being able to assist people in returning to their optimal health is what she is passionate about.  

Nikela decided to follow her healthcare passion and begin her osteopathic studies at Southern Cross University in Lismore. Since completing her Bachelor of Clinical Science and Masters of Osteopathic Medicine, she has worked in a busy Sydney private practice before being persuaded to move across Australia to the beautiful beaches and relaxed lifestyle in WA.  

Nikela is eager to treat patients of all ages and all healthcare needs. Using a range of soft tissue techniques, joint mobilisation, dry needling stretching and rehabilitation advice, Nikela can assist in getting you pain free and returning to your daily activities. ​Nikela is passionate about working with patients to create an individual, goal-oriented treatment plan in order to achieve success.
