Tom Blake


Thomas grew up in Melbourne’s North East suburbs playing high-level football and basketball for local clubs. His strong sporting interest and involvement within the local community carried through to his adult years and is a driving factor behind his eagerness to study and work in the field of Osteopathy.

For as long as he could remember, Tom was fascinated by anatomy; which led him towards Osteopathy as a career choice.  Additionally he had witnessed his teammates struggling with ongoing injuries, who sought relief from Osteopath’s and thus returned to sport pain free. These experiences inspired him to study Osteopathy, so he too could help people reach their full potential and improve their quality of life.

He is passionate about working with his patients to help them improve general muscle tightness or stiffness, improve movement without pain and reach their overall health goals.

Tom’s treatment revolves around patient education and understanding.  Enabling his patients to better understand their musculoskeletal conditions and further their ability to help improve their overall level of health. He adopts a wide range of osteopathic techniques and enjoys treating people of all age groups. He is also qualified to perform dry needling and myofascial cupping.
