Dr. Tristan Joss

Tristan has been developing his manual therapy skills for many years at various Osteo clinics around Melbourne.

Why did he choose Osteopathy? That’s actually a straight-forward answer. Tristan had identified a career objective for himself considering the extensive time we spend in work. He realised he was seeking a rewarding career in the health and well-being industry where he could make a difference to people’s lives for the better. Hence his choice to become an Osteopath.

Given his studies (aside from Osteopathy) in Sports Therapy, Personal Training and Fitness, Tristan has a considerable background of knowledge in working with sports people and assisting their injury recovery and rehab. He also loves working out spinal problems with his clients given its stretch across our society, enabling many to return to their activities of choice in good time.
