Mirae Payroli - Osteopath​

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 headaches, shoulder injuries and those complex cases no one can seem to solve. She loves to problem solve!

Mirae is no longer taking on new clients but works closely with her team if needed on particularly tricky cases.

Loz Bonner - Osteopath

Laurel Loz Bonner

Loz is currently on maternity leave and we will returning to work in February 2022. Keep an eye on our instagram and facebook pages for any updates about her return.

Loz joined our team as a receptionist in 2020 while completing her osteopathic studies, then did a 6 month internship with us as part of her final placement. She disappeared for the second half of 2021 to birth and mother her beautiful baby boy and is now rejoining us 2 days a week as a fully qualified osteopath.

Loz developed an interest in osteopathy when receiving treatment herself. She found the way that osteopaths work to find the underlying cause to be a refreshing change from other modalities who had treated her symptoms rather than resolving the issue. Loz has a keen interest in women’s health and injury rehabilitation. This has seen her further her skills in pilates with the hopes of keeping people fit, healthy and injury free.

In her spare time, you will find Loz at the dog beach with her bulldog Kate and her son Lewie, visiting her mum and soaking up the sunshine on Phillip Island or dancing like no one is watching in her living room! Loz would love to chat with you about anything and everything osteopathy, so if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask!
