PHYSIOTHERAPIST: B.Phty MHPrac (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy), PG Occ Health and MPNZ

Health and wellness are my passion and this is expressed through Body Wise Health which I started in May 2010 when I joined the team at the Marshlands Family Health Centre (previously Gayhurst Medical Centre). I have 24 years experience in the field of Physiotherapy, having worked in a vast range of positions in New Zealand and overseas in the USA and the UK. With a Masters in Health Science in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, I am an APPI Pilates Instructor, a qualified Occupational Health Physiotherapist and trained in Acupuncture for Musculoskeletal conditions.

My mission is to help others achieve optimal health and wellbeing and I have a strong belief in a holistic and proactive approach to health. I do this through a combination of traditional Sports Physiotherapy, Massage and Myofascial Therapy, Acupuncture, Spinal Mobilisations and Manipulation, Pilates, Wellness Coaching, Woman’s Health, Stress Management and Work Site Assessments.

“I look forward to meeting you and helping out with your individual physiotherapy and health goals”.



PHYSIOTHERAPIST: BSc (Hons) Phty, PG Cert Acup, PG Cert Manip Therapy, MPNZ

I graduated with a BSc(Hons) in Physiotherapy in the UK in 1992 and worked in the field of Orthopaedic Rehabilitation and Musculoskeletal Outpatients within the NHS for nearly a decade. My husband and I came to Christchurch in 2002, fell in love with the Kiwi lifestyle, and lapped up all the opportunities for adventure that the South Island provides.

As well as raising a family, running a business and competing in multi-sport races for many years, I have gained experience in a variety of private clinics in the city. My areas of physiotherapy interest include Post-Operative Rehabilitation and those niggling sporting injuries that have become chronic. With all my clients I try to think outside the square and address underlying muscle imbalance issues in other parts of the body.

I believe in empowering clients with knowledge about their condition and try to give them useful skills for ongoing self-management.

I am a member of Physiotherapy New Zealand and have post graduate training in Manipulative Physiotherapy as well as Acupuncture for musculoskeletal conditions.

I am a member of Physiotherapy New Zealand and am active in a number of social sport environments. My passion is in athletic development and performance in addition to injury recovery, with a special interest in sports related musculoskeletal injuries, strength and conditioning rehabilitation.
