Mariella completed her Bachelor of Health Sciences (clinical sciences) and Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) at Victoria University to become a qualified Osteopath. During her final years of University, Mariella spent time in multiple clinics over Melbourne treating a range of patients and conditions.
Mariella was drawn to Osteopathy due to its holistic approach to treating the whole of a patient, not just one single aspect. This aligned with her belief that there are many aspects of health and life that can affect a patient's life and to improve our health we must influence as many as we can.
Mariella uses a wide range of techniques and works with the patient to create a unique treatment plan to achieve patient goals whether that be reducing pain, improving function or returning to an activity.
Mariella believes that everyone has the potential to continue to improve their health and lifestyle and she aspires to work with patients to achieve optimal health and ultimately improve quality of life. Mariella enjoys treating a range of patients from kids, athletes, adults and elderly and believes everyone can benefit from what osteopathy can offer.
Outside of the clinic Mariella enjoys spending time with friends and family including her dog as well as sitting back and relaxing with a good book, some crafts or baking some delicious creations.
