Meet the Team
Dr Hugh Giles
Dr Jenny Kullas
Having been born and raised in Grafton it was only a matter of time before Hugh was going to return home to his roots. After completing his Masters in Osteopathic Medicine in 2014 Hugh worked in Northern NSW region at various locations before deciding to settle in his hometown Grafton. Hugh values the importance of helping within the community and is glad to be able to provide the service of osteopathy to his fellow Graftonians. Hugh has a friendly, warm demeanour and will do his best to make you feel comfortable and safe whilst in his care. Hugh doesn’t have a set preference for any patient demographic or treatment specific area of interest. He just genuinely wants the best possible outcome for all his patients.
Jenny Kullas is a Chiropractor who has recently relocated to the Yamba area from the tropical North Queensland town of Cairns.
She has over ten years’ experience in Chiropractic and owes her profession to a sports related injury she encountered in her teens. Chiropractic’s hands on approach, its focus on a balanced and drug free treatment, combined with her passion for the study of anatomy and a desire to practice as a health professional, made Jenny’s choice of career an easy one.
Jenny has completed a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and Master of Chiropractic Science at Macquarie University and has recently completed training in BASI Pilates. She has had experience in owning her own practice in Cairns for nine years and has seen an extensive scope of cases and treated a wide range of ages.
