Dr Gabriel Ituarte (Osteopath) M.H.Sci (Osteo), B.Sc. (Clin.Sci.), B.Sci. (Biomed.Sci.)

Gabriel moved to Heathcote Junction with his family in 2013 wanting a closer connection to nature and community. He has a strong passion in serving this beautiful region.

Gabriel has a profound understanding and knowledge of the human body after initially studying a bachelor of Biomedical Science before studying Osteopathy. Furthermore practical experience of several years as a fitness trainer with clients of varying needs including rehabilitation, performance and good health compliments his abilities. Gabriel has Certification in Applied Functional Science through the Gray Institute empowering him to create treatments and programs for the client’s specific needs based on their individual abilities and goals.

Exploring other directions and applications for Osteopathy continues to be a passion and motivation. His masters research examined how osteopathic treatment of the neck can affect jaw pain and function. In 2010 he completed his studies with an award for Outstanding Masters Student at Victoria University. He is now assisting there as a sessional teaching osteopathic examination and technique, along with clinical diagnosis and management to undergraduate and masters students. Gabriel has obtained a certificate in Level 1 Dry Needling and Cupping which he incorporates into his treatment repertoire.

Dr Bryan Dinh (Osteopath) M.H.Sci (Osteo), B.Sc. (Clin.Sci.),

Bryan is a fully qualified and registered Osteopath having completed his Bachelor of Science (clinical Science) and Masters in Health Science (Osteopathy) at Victoria University. He has also undergone extra training to incorporate dry needling and cupping into his treatment.

Having gone through his fair share of injuries, Bryan is a very caring Osteopath who empathises strongly with his patients. He likes to work with the patient to find the cause of their pain and makes it his aim to educate each of his patient about their condition. As a result, he hopes to empower each patient so that they can take the necessary steps required to return to doing what they love sooner rather than later. 

Bryan enjoys treating a wide range of musculoskeletal complaints across all age groups. He has a special interest in treating ankle and neck pain as well as shoulder, low back and knee pain.  In addition to providing manual therapy, it is likely that Bryan will integrate ergonomics and lifestyle advice as well as exercise prescription into his treatment. This is to ensure that each patient is receiving holistic care. 

In his spare time, Bryan can be found on the golf course trying to perfect his golf game, spending time with family and friends as well as supporting the bombers.
