& owner of Enhance Osteopathy, Heidelberg
DipRemMassg, BATh, B.App.Sc.(Comp Med), M.Ost, Member of Osteopathy Australia
Having treated patients for over sixteen years, initially as a Remedial Massage Therapist and then as an Osteopath, Dr Tiffany Rubach took over the clinic from Dr Margaret Matthews (Osteopath), six years ago and is the owner and principal practitioner at Enhance Osteopathy in Heidelberg. She co-treated with Marg during the handover, when the clinic was called Simply Well, and now manages many of her patients.
Her treatment experience encompasses a broad base of patients - from general injury work, headaches, sports therapy and pregnant patients, through to recovery from more serious injury and surgery. Her particular passion is working with complex health care patients where a decrease in pain can mean so much to their quality of life.
Tiffany also taught anatomy to other osteopaths for three years at university level and is passionate about working in conjunction with other medical practitioners to provide whole-health solutions for her patients.
Experienced in direct structural osteopathic techniques as well as more gentle cranial and biodynamic osteopathy, Tiffany believes in tailoring her osteo treatments to suit each individual patient.
Having a down to earth manner so patients feel comfortable asking for what they want and voicing their concerns is also important to her, so if you know what works for you, or have a particular way you like to be treated, especially if you have had osteopathy before, she encourages you to speak up. She also believes in educating patients and improving health literacy so people can manage their own health better.
Tiffany treats a wide variety of ages, from early childhood through to older patients, and particularly enjoys getting to know whole families.
She is also passionate about what she calls "proper osteopathy" and spends a lot of time trying to learn as much about osteopathy as possible. She believes when you choose to be an osteopath you must keep learning your whole career and there are always new things to learn from osteopaths you admire.
More recently Tiffany has also started her first foray into teaching continuing professional development courses to qualified osteopaths. These courses are practical technique courses that teach osteopaths balanced ligamentous tension techniques, an indirect osteopathic technique that she uses frequently in her day to day practice.
When she’s not at work as an Osteopathy in Heidelberg Tiffany loves doing Tai Chi, spending time in the great outdoors and reading really long books.
