I’m a New Zealand trained Physiotherapist (Otago) and have been working helping people all around the world for 24 years! I have been running a private practice for 17 years firstly in Nelson, then Collingwood, Golden Bay, and now at my home studio in Richmond, Tasman. I have recently de-registered as a physiotherapist, so no longer doe Physio consults or ACC
Previously, I have worked in a variety of settings and countries from hospital wards in New Zealand, to teaching gynecology to students in London, to a private clinic in South Africa. My latest stint overseas was in 2001 for three months in the UK while traveling on a world trip with my son. I locumed in many NZ practices prior to opening my own.
I have assisted tutors in Craniosacaral Therapy and Holistic Pulsing, and run numerous Anatomy, Aromatherapy, Massage,Holistic Pulsing and Yoga courses both as part of adult education course, and privately.
My special skills are in helping people problem solve their joint, muscle and connective tissue pain due to long-term development of unhelpful patterns of imbalance. I do not “fix” people’s problems, but rather work with them to solve the problem.
How can I help you?
If you are stressed, have constant headaches, back pain, are awaiting knee surgery, have fallen off a ladder or suffered some form of accident, I may be able to help. Perhaps you feel generally tight or sore, and want some immediate relief and an individually designed stretch and strengthening program to help you?
How do I do this?
I help to release muscle and connective tissue, freeing joints to work more effectively, allowing my clients to gain more from the stretch and strengthening programs which I write for them.
