My passion is to achieve optimal health via manual therapy and exercise. I have a special interest in biomechanics, which likely comes from a love of sports – mainly golf and football.
I was born in Vienna, Austria and moved to Mangawhai where I have now lived for most of my life. I attended Mangawhai Beach School and Rodney College, where I developed a passion for the sciences, particularly chemistry and human biology. I went on to study Osteopathy at Unitec, Auckland. After 5 years of intense study, I came away with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Biology and a Masters in Osteopathy.
My love of golf has presented me with the opportunity to also work as a caddie on one of NZ’s most prestigious golf clubs, Tara Iti, in near by Te Arai. This has further driven me to see how manual therapy and manipulation can maximise a player’s game and be applied across other sports.
Ben is Titlest Performance Institute (T.P.I.) Level 1 Certified.
One of the great things the TPI team have achieved is developing a physical screen that can be recorded on an app to highlight where your personal limitations that may be negatively affecting your game lie. With that information we can then dig deeper and see what is causing those physical limitations/restrictions and work through them with manual therapy and exercise.
Please note: All practitioners have regular Police Checks. The most recent in December 2018.
