Osteopath

Dr Isabel Tan

" My vision for my patients is for them to develop a better understanding of how their bodies work, so that they can manage their health effectively and independently. Often, pain exists because people don’t realise how much strain they are putting on their minds and bodies due to poor lifestyle choices. "

I hold a Bachelor of Health Science & Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy) from RMIT University and a Bachelor of Sports Science from the University of the Philippines.

I love how osteopathy is based on the hard sciences of anatomy and physiology, but still incorporates a holistic approach. It focuses on the whole person, not just the injury. It recognises that to achieve true health, nurture and care of body and mind is essential. Osteopathy is a practice that genuinely helps people become better versions of themselves through education and active lifestyle change.

I use the following treatment styles for my patients: structural based manual therapy, dry needling, exercise prescription and ergonomics education, and general lifestyle advice.

I want to make you understand that osteopathy is not a ‘quick fix’. Manual therapy encourages and promotes better healing, but the changes made within the treatment room need to be supported by active rehabilitation and commitment to lifestyle change. I will work closely with you to support you with these changes.

In my spare time, I like to engage in exercise such as badminton, yoga and running. I also enjoy going on hikes. I like to read books, with my favourite topics being science and philosophy. I also enjoy battling monsters and evildoers in the occasional game of dungeons & dragons with friends.
