Stefani studied osteopathy at Victoria University, graduating in 2018. She then spent 3 years in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley treating a variety of patients from all walks of life. Moving back to Victoria in September this year, Stefani is happy to be nearer family.
Stefani believes every patient’s needs are unique and multifactorial. Understanding the whole patient is essential in structuring an effective treatment plan. Her treatment style is versatile, incorporating fine, light-handed techniques for those with acute pain alongside firmer, direct, structural manipulation when indicated.

Whilst working in laboratory medical science, Stefani completed a massage course in 2009 to explore another avenue of health care. She felt that the use of hands-on therapy to help others recover from injury was just her thing! This led to a career change, studying osteopathy at Victoria University.
Stefani believes in movement as medicine – her favourite mode of rehabilitation is Pilates. She also has a particular interest in assessing and treating the hips and pelvis. Combining hands-on care and exercise empowers patients to take charge of their health. Educating patients on how they can help themselves is a must.
Dr Stefani’s favourite things:
Do you believe in the antioxidant powers of coffee? So does Stefani! Since moving back to Victoria, she intends to explore the Surf Coast for the best cup (local tips welcome), probably on foot. She loves a long walk, especially a bush walk. If she isn’t drinking coffee or walking, Stefani is likely to be frocked-up in vintage-inspired rag..
