Hugo Pereira

Hugo Pereira

Originally from Portugal, Hugo moved to Lismore to study osteopathy at Southern Cross University. Having fallen in love with the Northern Rivers, he decided to grow roots in the area and upon completing his studies he joined Lismore Osteopathy.

Hugo has a background in remedial massage, which he practiced for over 15 years. This experience has given him an acute appreciation for the relationship between tight muscles, stiffness and restricted movement, and the pain and discomfort they cause.

No stranger to debilitating, chronic back pain and injuries himself, Hugo knows how important it is to care for the body with the help of osteopathic care, which is precisely the reason that led him to study osteopathic medicine.

There’s nothing Hugo enjoys more than caring for his patients and help them improve their physical condition, not only with the use of manual techniques during the treatment but also with advice on posture, corrective exercises and tips on how to improve sleep, hydration and recovery from everyday wear and tear.

When he’s not working you might find him at the local mountain bike track, the Duck Creek Mountain Bike Park, or if the waves are good Flat Rock is one of his favourite spots.


Anthony Thompson

Anthony worked at the SCU Gym as a personal trainer, Group Fitness educator and Strength and Rehab Coach throughout his studies. During his six years at university and in the student clinic, he honed the theoretical knowledge that underpins how the human body functions while simultaneously refining this knowledge’s practical application through his work at the gym.

He has over six years of exercise experience with clients ranging from the elderly first-timers, return from injury, school groups and developing athletes, through to competitive athletes in the height of their careers.

Anthony grew up a country boy south of Coffs Harbour. Growing up living and working the land has formed the underpins of Anthony’s passion for the human body and its optimal movement patterns.  A family man and people person at heart that aims to help people overcome the barriers preventing them from living their life how they want.

Anthony has a competitive history in soccer, MMA and, most recently, natural bodybuilding and powerlifting.
