Dr Sarah-Jane Martorella

Member of OA,
B.App.Sc.(H. Bio.),
Grad. Cert. Tertiary Teaching, PostGrad. Dip. Gerontology, Lecturer, R.M.I.T. University.



Sarah began her studies at R.M.I.T University in 1993 attaining a Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Biology.  She then commenced Osteopathy, graduating in 1999.  During her studies at University Sarah also became a qualified Fitness Instructor in 1994, and a Bowen Instructor (BOWTECH) in 1997.  In 2000 Sarah began working at R.M.I.T as a part time lecturer and completed a Grad Cert in Tertiary teaching in 2003.  She then undertook post-graduate studies in Gerontology at La Trobe University in 2004 during which she gained specialized experience working with older adults. This enabled her to develop the course Osteopathic Care for Older Adults in the Masters Program at R.M.I.T University which she still currently teaches.

Sarah has worked in many clinics in Melbourne since 1999 and in 2003 she opened the Doncaster Osteopathic Clinic and then the 213 Osteopathy Blackburn Clinic in 2009.  The clinics offered Osteopathy, Clinical Pilates, Myotherapy and Massage.

Prior to this, Sarah worked for 10 years as a fitness instructor and personal trainer at Aquarena Doncaster and various other gyms across Melbourne.  This enabled her to provide her patients with a unique blend of corrective exercise therapy in conjunction with osteopathic treatment.

In addition to working with the elderly and sports injury sufferers, Sarah enjoys looking after patients with headache, neck and back pain.  She also has a special interest in working with children (paediatrics) and has completed many courses in obstetrics and gynaecology for pregnancy related problems.  Along with her osteopathic techniques Sarah also offers dry needling, myofascial cupping and exercise prescription and rehabilitation for musculoskeletal complaints.

Sarah has sold her practices but continues to work at the Doncaster Osteopathic Clinic and R.M.I.T. University while spending time with her family and active little toddler.
