Dr. Tara O’Callaghan
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.
