What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a method of detecting and treating chronic or acute injured parts of the body such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. It involves the gentle and specific application of highly developed touch to evaluate and treat injuries and imbalances to the body.
When the body is balanced and working efficiently, it will function with a minimum of wear and tear, leaving more energy for living and self-repair.
BSc Hons Ost, PG Dip Animal Osteopathy
My aim is to provide the highest quality gentle osteopathic care and by working with patients I aim to get people out of pain and back to normality. I want all my patients to feel at ease within the clinic surroundings and with their osteopathic practitioner.
I enjoy treating a wide range of people, during pregnancy and people off all ages from babies to the elderly with a wide range of musculoskeletal problems and many general health problems.

M.Ost, BA App Science (HB)
I have a Masters in Osteopathy. I became interested in being an osteopath when I saw how much someone’s health could be improved through hands on techniques and lifestyle advice. I am very interested in finding the cause of pain and not just treating the area it presents itself in. This involves a thorough examination and whole body treatment approach.
I have recently moved to the lovely Coromandel where I can surf, dive and fish and am enjoying the beautiful weather.
