“I feel completely privileged to be able to work with my patients – with the trust that they offer me and the extraordinary things their bodies teach me. It is an honour to be given a patient’s trust.”
Caroline’s areas of special interest include:
- Physical manifestations of stress and the impact on the body
- Women’s health
- Growing people – babies, children, adolescents
- Ageing well
- Patient maintenance programs
After working in Melbourne and Sydney with some of the best known osteopaths in Australia, Caroline Chee joined KMM in 2009. Caroline is a professional dedicated to lifelong learning and development as a practitioner. “I absolutely love osteopathy. The philosophy, the wisdom in it, the art – it is brilliant and every day is a learning process.”
Caroline’s patients benefit from her positive, thorough and caring approach. Taking the time to listen to her patients, and helping them to understand and care for their bodies is part of every one of her patient consultations.
Caroline has developed a great interest in working with people with complex issues – chronic pain and disease; serious illness; histories of trauma; arthritis; autoimmune disease as well as complicated life situations which can aggravate musculoskeletal pain. “Helping people who are suffering with chronic or complex conditions and disease to achieve improved quality of life in the face of what they are living with is one of the great rewards of my work.“
In addition to the bodywork Caroline does with her patients, she also strives to help her patients gain a better understanding of themselves and their bodies, and a deeper appreciation of their own complaint. These insights also form an important part of a patient learning tools to self-manage, and support themselves better on their journey toward good health.
Caroline’s own journey to good health sees her regularly surfing, doing mindfulness meditation, yoga and cooking nutritious meals for herself and her young daughter. She also frequently indulges her love of nature, spending lots of time immersed in the extraordinary surrounds of the Surfcoast.
