BSc (Hons) Ost
Registered Osteopath NZRO
Registered ACC Treatment Provider.
I trained at the UK's leading osteopathic college The British School of Osteopathy graduating in 2000. Through this education I gained a strong grounding in clinical reasoning and differential diagnosis. This means as a primary health worker I am qualified to assess, diagnose and treat your condition. Should something more serious be suspected I can refer you for X-Ray, Ultrasound imaging or to the appropriate practitioner, .
Over the last 20 years I have developed my private practice as well as spending 6 years lecturing on the Master of Osteopathy course at Unitec, progressing to the role of external examiner.
For the last 12 years I have undertaken post graduate training in Cranial Osteopathy. I have also developed a strong yoga practice which has supported and enhanced my knowledge of posture and exercise.
I have had extensive experience treating a variety of conditions : from helping in rehabilitation after severe spinal injury, sports injury, to the more day to day aches and sprains of every day life. I also work with clients through their pregnancy and after birth, and provide treatment for babies and children.
I fell in love with the Matakana Coast and moved here 10 years ago. I began working from my home in Matheson's Bay initially and more recently from BodyRe in Matakana.
I am a registered ACC treatment provider. There is no need for you to visit your GP first, we can complete all necessary paper work during your consultation.
