Dr Zoe Mathieu (Osteopath)
Zoe has always known that she wanted to help people work towards health and well-being. Zoe had her first osteopathy treatment when she was still at school. The values and philosophy of osteopathy deeply resonated with her. She really understood that osteopathy offered a lens to view the body as an interconnected system and that it offered a respectful approach toward a path of healing. She was captivated. And now as an osteopath her approach with patients is aligned with these understandings she first encountered many years ago.
Zoe is a compassionate person and enjoys taking the time with each of her patients to figure out how best to get them feeling better.
She completed her five years of study at Southern Cross University and graduated with a Bachelor of Clinical Science and Master of Osteopathic Medicine. This ensures that she is able to safely and accurately diagnose and treat her patients.
Zoe realizes that every situation/person is unique and will adjust her treatments accordingly - whether that’s a firm, direct treatment or a gentler approach depending on what is best suited.
