Osteopaths

What is it? What do they do?

They believe if the body is functioning well it can maintain itself in a healthy state.

Some describe Osteopaths are a bit like having a check up or service on your body.
There may not be anything really wrong but you feel like your body is not functioning to it's full potential. Example you may have a niggle of pain in your knee or a sore back that is okay sometimes but not at other times. If the body is out of alignment then there is poor blood supply to areas and dis-ease can develop.

Or you go to them because you have a particular problem.
They are very beneficial when planning to get pregnant, are pregnant or have given birth. They also treat babies and children.
 
Examples of what they treat
  • Infertility
  • Menstrual problems
  • Back pain

Martien Jonkers Koru Clinic
Titirangi

"I initially trained in New Zealand as an Occupational Therapist graduating in 1991. I worked in Waikato Hospital and then in Florida USA where I  trained as a Craniosacral Therapist in 1996. I then went on to study Osteopathy in England and graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in Kent in 2000. I had wonderful teachers who imparted a rich Osteopathic lineage, this is the foundation that I draw on daily."

Triune Osteopaths 
Herne Bay

Andrew graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1996 and moved to New Zealand shortly afterwards. Since that time Andrew has undertaken extensive post graduate studies both in New Zealand and Australia. Amongst Andrews interests are chronic pain patterns and the widespread effects on the patient. 
The aim of a consultation is to enable the patient to manage the problem. In conjunction with Osteopathic treatment we combine movement analysis and education as well as teaching the patient about use of self and restorative exercises.
