Our Team

Osteopaths
Dr. Tara O’Callaghan
Osteopath

Tara has spent the majority of her career working in Regional Victoria and has developed a great understanding of what makes regional areas what they are, and the health concerns that can come with it. Being aware of few choices when it came to alternatives for care, Tara established the clinic in 2001 to aim to fill this void.
 
Her main interests in Osteopathy include experiencing the diversity that regional practice presents, Neck and Shoulder Injuries, Spinal and Pelvic Concerns, Postural Assessment and Advice involving the whole family, Chronic Pain and Patient Focused Outcomes.
 
Outside of the clinic Tara enjoys swimming, getting stuck into the garden and being active. But most of all she loves spending time with her growing family.
Dr. Olivia Fontana
Osteopath

Olivia is originally a Shepparton local, and now shares her time working as an Osteopath here with us, and down in Melbourne in her own practice.
 
Her main interests in Osteopathy are treating people who experience Neck and Back pain, particularly those who experience a lot of these symptoms in this technological age where a lot of people are at a computer all day long. She also enjoys working with people who suffer Headaches, strengthening muscular imbalances and in helping people to maintain full body health.
 
Olivia also has a special interest in working with people who experience digestive issues and those with Chronic Constipation.
Dr. Jeff Harris
Osteopath
Jeff has consulted as an Osteopath from the clinic at different times since 2016. Jeff now shares his time between sunny Deniliquin NSW, Echuca, and joining us here at the clinic on alternate Saturdays.
 
Jeff has a special interest in foot, leg and pelvic biomechanics including gait assessment. He is also trained to carry out on site ergonomics assessments and write medico-legal reports, especially concerning whiplash injuries. He, like other Osteopaths, is trained to treat the vast majority of pain causing conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, using Osteopathic manual therapy and exercise.
 
Jeff is also trained in ‘Dry Needling’ technique, which involves inserting a fine, sterile acupuncture needle into muscle ‘trigger points’. This procedure is especially useful with chronic pain sufferers, and may be used in conjunction with other Osteopathic techniques.

Dr. Kristoffer Wesselink
Osteopath

Kristoffer graduated from RMIT University after completing his bachelor’s degree in Health Science and Applied Science (Osteopathy) and has since relocated locally to Shepparton. Prior to this, he completed his studies in Nursing. Sparking his interest in Community-centered care and developing good patient relations, he brings these principles into his Osteopathic practice.
 
Kristoffer enjoys treating a wide range of issues, which include work related postural pains, and an array of musculoskeletal injuries, especially those of the knee and ankle.  He places strong emphasis on rehabilitation and empowering patients with the tools to manage their own health.
 
In his spare time, Kristoffer enjoys learning new hobbies and spending time with his growing family.
