BAppSci (Human Biology) M. Osteopathy
OCNZ and ACC Registered Osteopath, MONZ
I discovered osteopathy in my 20s while on my OE in London and, after what had been a varied career involving washing dishes, delivery mail and working for the New Zealand government, I qualified in 2006 with a Masters in Osteopathy. Since qualifying I have worked in busy Osteopathic practices in Blenheim, Whangarei and Auckland before joining Kate at Love Your Bones and settling in Rotorua in 2017.
I am passionate about working with patients of all ages and conditions to improve wellbeing and achieve positive outcomes. I especially enjoy working with newborns and children and have a particular interest in tongue ties in babies. I am a member of Osteopaths New Zealand and was previously Chair of the Osteopathic Council of New Zealand.
Since graduating I have engaged in ongoing professional education, undertaking postgraduate training in Cranial Osteopathy with the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation and ongoing programmes in Biodynamic Osteopathy, as well as postgraduate studies in Healthcare Ethics. I am part of the Osteopathic Children’s Foundation, volunteering monthly in Hamilton to provide treatment to children in need.
Outside of osteopathy I spend as much time as I can with my young son Benedict and wife Leanne, am a keen mountainbiker, occasional surfer, dormant triathlete and enjoy good coffee.
