With a previous ‘life’ in the medical, scientific and pharmaceutical industries and a desire to still pursue a medical career, Tamara finally found the answer in Osteopathy. Completing a double degree with Masters qualifications at Victoria University has seen her mainly work in private clinics, and occasionally tutor anatomy. Maintaining her registration and professional development has seen Tamara further extend her knowledge with learning trigger point dry needling, and continuing her studies of Osteopathy in the cranial field. Tamara is a passionate advocate of preventative medicine that treats the whole person – mind, body and spirit, while still supporting Western medicine and continuing to work as an allied health professional. Her recent studies have focused on the awareness of the mind body connection by way of completion of studies as a meditation teacher and Reiki II channel.
