Philosophy

Osteopathy approaches wellness from a total perspective.  We seeks to strengthen your body’s natural ability to heal itself and in doing so, tackles the root problem that causes an assortment of primary and secondary illnesses that might surface in various symbolic forms. Every treatment is individualised based on the context of each patients’ medical conditions and lifestyles. We regard the source of many trouble from a structural point of view and we spend time diagnosing the body to understand the root causes.

Ethos

The practice are established on the foundations of open and honest communications with our patients.  From your very first visit, we seek to give you a good idea of your conditions and a definitive treatment concept.  Our policy is to let you be treated by the same person for all your visits so that there is proper follow through.  As such, we do not only go for symptomatic treatment.  We treat holistically to build lasting health together with nutritional treatment that stems from the INNER body.”

To an osteopath, the body functions as a complete, working system. So any problems that affect the body structure will upset the balance of our general health. For this reason, an osteopath will not want to simply ease a specific problem, such as a pain in the neck. The osteopath will also want to know what is causing that pain. It could be anything from physical injury to mental anxiety.

About Us

DAVID TIO, Osteopath, established Osteopathic Treatment Centre (OTC) in 1984 as the first holistic health clinic in Singapore to offer natural pain relief through Osteopathy – without the use of pain killers and prescription drugs.

Osteopathic Treatment Centre is Singapore’s premier holistic health practice for the treatment of musculoskeletal aches and pain, sports injuries and many other health issues. David and his osteopath colleagues have, since 1984, successfully provided immediate and long-term osteopathic pain relief to more than 80,000 people in Singapore.

There are currently three osteopaths in the practice covering a wide range of treatment styles and osteopathic healthcare. There is also a resident podiatrist / chiropodist.

Osteopathy and podiatry / chiropody commonly go hand-in-hand to diagnose and treat many complaints associated with poor foot mechanics, which frequently lead to postural imbalances resulting in aches and pains elsewhere in the body.

Osteopathic Treatment Centre works with the Centre for Complementary and Alternative Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CCAM), with more than a dozen healthcare professionals offering a wide range of therapies – Acupuncture, Applied Kinesiology, Bowen Technique, Clinical Nutrition, Homeopathy, Hypnotherapy, Integrated Corrective Exercises, Myofascial Therapy, Pilates, Podiatry & Chiropody, Therapeutic Massage, Naturopathy and Pulsed Magnetic Resonance.

Our osteopaths and other health practitioners also work closely with other medical and healthcare professionals. Thus, we are able to provide you with – or refer you to – the most appropriate treatment for whatever health challenges you may have.

The clinic is fully-equipped with state-of the-art diagnostic equipment to screen scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and flat feet.

We are the only health practice in Singapore to assess spinal anomalies using the Spinal Analysis Machine (SAM), giving a real measurement for unequal leg lengths, scoliosis, left-right weight imbalance and abnormal lordosis.

In addition, we stock a wide range of high quality vitamin / mineral and herbal supplements that will support and enhance your well-being. We are fully qualified to recommend the appropriate supplements that best suit your needs.
