John and Jo are both UK trained and qualified Osteopaths with over 30 years of experience between them. They studied at The British School of Osteopathy in London and graduated in 2001. They are passionate about what they do and treat all ages- from new born through to the elderly. They started and built a successful Osteopathic practice in the UK before they moved back to New Zealand in 2008. Since then they took over and built up a very busy clinic in West Auckland whilst also building their Birkenhead Clinic. They know solely focused on Osteopaths and Co and are excited to see it growing and developing.
Over their time in practice they have come to observe common patterns and problems that people seem to struggle with and wanted to offer a clinic that could better offer a total solution to todays modern lifestyle demands. Between them and their highly skilled team they offer Osteopathy, Acupuncture, Massage, Pilates rehab as well as advice on diet, lifestyle changes, ergonomics and exercise.
As parents of 2 very busy boys they understand the problems parents face trying to balance busy lifestyles of families and the changing needs and demands of growing bodies! Developing good habits in our children is a passion the whole team believes in and we love working with and seeing our younger patients grow and thrive.
While Osteopathy is amazing in so many ways, we also know that sometimes other factors need taking into account. At Osteopaths and Co we will work with you to optimise your body in every way possible- restoring movement, reducing pain, strengthening and conditioning, postural alignment at your desk and car seat, exercise ideas, pilates, diet advice etc etc. Often simple changes/additions to your daily life can have massive impacts in how you feel.
