Gary is a graduate of the British School of Osteopathy in London. Since graduation he has had a wide and varied career both here and in his native country, New Zealand.
He specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of back, neck and joint pain. His treatment plan includes soft tissue, articulation and manipulative techniques. Breathing mechanics, core stability activation and encouragement of flexibility are key areas of Gary's treatment protocols.
He has a particular interest in the treatment and rehabilitation of work-related musculo-skeletal disorders. Stress related conditions such as headaches, neck and back pain are corrected by addressing postural control, correction of respiratory pattern disorders and the key elements of abdominal function.
Over the years, he has treated many elite and Olympic sportsmen and women. Additionally to his osteopathic career, Gary has an avid interest in water sports - namely, surfing, windsurfing and sailing. He has been involved in the design and manufacture of top level surf club and surf racing boards. He is also actively involved in fitness coaching at his local rugby club where all his three sons are members. He has played and represented rugby at junior national level in his native New Zealand.
