Which practitioner will I see?
We take responsibility for our patients based on what we do best. That’s why we each see different patients in order to ensure that you GET TREATMENT FAST and get the best care.
Our system is reviewed regularly to see if we can ‘do it better’ and we definitely take on your feedback. This ensures that we maintain our goal of exceptional health care.
If you end up seeing a different practitioner to what you thought, we can assure you that all our patients are reviewed and we have meetings twice a week to discuss care and best practice for you all.

Do I need a referral to see an osteopath?
Despite many clients being referred by their doctor or other health professional, a referral is not required to see an osteopath. Should you prefer, you may make an appointment with us directly. This applies even if you have had an accident or wish to submit an ACC claim.
Can you lodge my ACC claim?
Yes, we can lodge an ACC claim for you. This allows you to have your injury assessed and treated immediately, that is, without the need to first visit your G.P.
What should I bring to my appointment?
If you have any x-rays, test results or relevant medical notes bring these with you. We require the radiologist report. Please email before your appointment when possible. For babies it may also be useful to bring their Plunket Book.
What should I wear to an appointment?
We have spare shorts for male and female.
Will treatment hurt?
You are welcome to email us with any questions you may have forgotten to ask or check in on your response to the initial session.

What training do you have?
In April 2019 I attended a professional qualification for golf. This is an international qualification for medical professionals specialising in golf biomechanics.
Jacquelyn: My training for the Bachelor of Osteopathic Medicine (Distinction) is from the British School of Osteopathy in London. I also have a degree in Behavioural Sciences (Biology and Psychology) from La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia.
My postgraduate training is in Research and Methodology which is part of my Masters in Science specialising in hypermobility and Clinical Pilates.
With a Level 4 Clinical Pilates qualification from Dance Medicine Australia and a Classical Apprenticeship, I combine both traditional and evidenced-based Pilates in my rehabilitation delivery. I also studied a Yoga Alliance 200 hour interdisciplinary qualification in Costa Rica in 2011.
I am also a Level 5 qualified Biodynamic Osteopath which is a nine year post-graduate training. This is in addition to my cranial osteopathy training which I did in 2008. I have completed my Level 3 Paediatric Biodynamic Osteopathy training.
