Mirae Payroli - Senior Osteopath and Business Owner

Mirae Payroli Oldmeadow osteopath

Mirae is currently on maternity leave and will return to seeing clients in mid 2024

Mirae completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage upon finishing high school but found that it was not quite what she was hoping for. After working and learning more about the health industry she discovered Osteopathy and went on to complete her osteopathic studies at Victoria University, completing her Bachelor of Clinical Science in 2013 and her Masters of Osteopathy in 2015.

Since completing her studies, Mirae has gone on to complete additional studies in women’s health and pelvic health complaints, dry needling, shoulder injury management and shockwave therapy. Mirae is very passionate about Osteopathy and believes the best results can be achieved when she and her clients work together to achieve their common goal.

She enjoys treating pelvic complaints and women’s health concerns, pregnant women and preparing them for birth, headaches, shoulder injuries and those complex cases no one can seem to solve. She loves to problem solve!

Mirae loves mentoring her team of osteopaths and she works closely with her team if needed on any particularly tricky cases. She has full faith in her team and is very  confident in their abilities and loves watching them grow and develop within the profession.

Sarah Slater - Senior Osteopath

Sarah graduated from Victoria University with a Bachelor of Science (Clinical Science) and Master of Health Science (Osteopathy). Her passion of the human body began during her basketball career, while playing at a national competition level. An intense interest in human anatomy and physiology combined with a dedication for helping others allowed this passion to become a reality.

Sarah believes the best outcomes occur when you understand your condition and take an active role. Sarah is interested in understanding your goals and expectations so that she can work with you to create a treatment plan that is both effective and realistic for you. Sarah combines a hands on approach with education and exercise rehabilitation so that so that you have the tools you need to not only recover but reach your full potential. 

No goal is too big or small – Sarah loves to work with a wide range of injuries and people, though she has a particular interest in sporting injuries, back pain and headaches. Sarah loves a challenge and particularly loves working with those who have tried everything and haven’t yet found their solution.

Alongside her role treating clients, Sarah also mentors our more junior members of the team.

Emily Colgan - Associate Osteopath

Emily graduated from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Health Science and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy). She then to study Level 1 and 2 or dry needling and is our most qualified “needler”. In 2023 she has furthered her training in areas of women’s health, pregnancy and pelvic floor assessment and treatment and is now offering both internal and external treatments to clients to address these areas.

Emily’s interest in Osteopathy began in high school while searching for a career path. She loved how Osteopathy combined her love of sport and passion for helping people. Throughout her studies Emily worked at her local football club of Banyule Football Club as a sport trainer. This provided her with valuable experience managing acute sporting injuries, while also providing rehabilitation strategies and injury prevention techniques.

Emily aims to help you achieve your goals by developing an individualised treatment and management plan. She places high importance on educating her patients and incorporating management strategies outside of the treatment room. Emily hopes to continue to further her knowledge in the future in pregnancy and post-partum complaints and possibly even some more advanced dry needling.

Alongside her treating role, Emily also mentors some of our more junior team members and helps with website updates and business analysis.

Adam Cansdale - Associate Osteopath

Adam is a very active, fun loving person who has played or tried most sports available. If he’s not at Cranbourne Osteopathy you will likely find him on a golf course or taking his dog Bentley for a walk. He has been a die-hard Geelong fan all his life – have a look for his supporter scarf in his treatment room!

Adam always knew he wanted to help other people be as active and successful as he could. He always aims to have people performing at their best and pain free. No matter what stage of life someone is at Adam wants them to be achieving their goals; whether it be picking up a child or grand kid, aiming for their first marathon or getting fit for an upcoming sports season. 

Since the introduction of the shockwave machine to our clinic, Adam has been a big advocate for its use and the benefits it can provide patients with long term difficult to manage injuries and complaints. He has completed the EMS Dolorclast masterclass and will be expanding his knowledge and skills further with more courses over the coming months.

Natalie Preab - Associate Osteopath

Natalie will be starting her next chapter in her career in mid March 2024 and will sadly be leaving Cranbourne Osteopathy. For this reason she is no longer accepting new clients at this clinic and will be slowly handing current clients over to her very capable colleagues.

Natalie graduated in 2021 from RMIT with a Bachelor of Health Science and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy). Natalie has always been fiercely passionate about healthcare, happiness and wellbeing. For Natalie, being an osteopath encompasses her interest in health, problem solving and biomechanics with an emphasis on helping others reach their full potential. Through her own injuries, she now wants to further educate others on how they can move without pain, and improve their lifestyles for healing and recovery.

While Natalie enjoys treating a wide-variety of musculoskeletal presentations, as a headache and migraine sufferer herself, she has developed a strong interest treating clients suffering from acute and chronic headaches and migraines, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and postural pain. When treating her clients she takes a holistic approach to ensure she is identifying all relevant areas and contributing factors, as she understands herself how interconnected our whole body can be.

Additionally, Natalie has completed her certifications in dry needling and cupping (level 1) and the EMS Dolorclast Masterclass for shockwave therapy to achieve the best possible outcomes for her patients. 

Madeleine Smart - Associate Osteopath

Madeleine is the latest addition to our team of osteopaths but is a familiar face around the clinic. She joins the osteo’s after working with us as one of our reception team during 2022; so you might find her multitasking and wearing many hats around the clinic and you may know that she usually goes by Maddy. 

Maddy graduated from RMIT University at the end of 2023 with a Bachelor of Health Science and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy). She first started seeing osteopaths during high school to recover from countless sporting injuries and fell in love with the profession.

Maddy believes that everyone deserves to reach their full potential and has a keen interest in providing treatment to queer and gender diverse folk who may not have had access to manual therapy in the past. She believes that it is essential for everyone to have the tools to assist their body in healing. Maddy has additional qualifications in personal training, sports training and dry needling.

When not at work, Maddy can be found playing at her local footy club or online playing video games.
