Meet Ben

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.


Please note: All practitioners have regular Police Checks. Most recent in June 2022.
