Dr. Jonathan Baker
Jonathan launched into Osteopathic practice in 2003 to define his own vision of how BEST to help those who need to get healthier. Some years on, Jonathan enjoys taking people of the Lilydale and Yarra Valley region through a health improvement journey both with the use of Osteoapthic hands-on techniques and Nutritional Medicine/health coaching advice, involving gene profiling.
Jonathan is deeply passionate about his own health and will apply that passion to your health too.
Jonathan’s experience with the benefits of Osteopathy was watching his dad recover from many work-induced injuries that really only an Osteo was able to fix. At the end of year 12, Jonathan almost went into an Architecture degree, changing at the last minute to science and then onto RMIT’s brilliant course.
Jonathan's expertise also branches into Nutritional Medicine, where he has enjoyed the rewarding benefits of helping people correct nutritional deficiencies, balance hormones, get more energy, lose weight and gain control of their lives.
With a growing young family living in Montrose, Jonathan is involved in his community, running, riding, renovating and enjoying the peace and tranquility of the Dandenongs.
