Fiona Laryn

My journey into Osteopathic Medicine began with five years of full-time study at the International College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) in Milan, Italy where I obtained my D.O. Followed by Master of Science in Osteopathy at the University of Surrey in London.

 

I see a wide range of patients in the clinic, ranging from infants to the elderly presenting with everything from sports injuries and muscular-skeletal problems to more complex cases of ongoing chronic pain involving the nervous system and and digestive system dysfunctions. I work closely with various medical specialists to ensure patients obtain full recovery and their treatment plan is clear and tailored to them.

My techniques tend to be functional (using cranial and fascial techniques) and integrative bringing all the body's systems together to find the cause of a problem.

When not in the clinic you can find me snowboarding, rock climbing, paddle boarding or cultivating my vegetable garden.

Bianca Coutts

I come from a family of health care practitioners so it was inevitable I would take a similar path. Osteopathy appealed to me because of the holistic, patient-centred approach that I saw.

 

My training consisted of five years of fulltime study at Unitec in Auckland, coming out of this with a Bachelor of Applied Science and a Master of Osteopathy. 

In my clinical practice I see a large range of patients coming through the doors including athletes, school children, farmers and elderly.

 

I have a strong interest in sports and performance with a personal background in soccer, tennis and showjumping. I enjoy helping people get back up and running following injury and working with them to ensure prevention in the future. 

I am always working to further my skills through attending courses and collaboration with both osteopaths and other health care professionals and specialists.

Brita Graser

Originally from Austria, I trained at the European School of Osteopathy (ESO) in the UK where I obtained my Master of Osteopathy.

 

During my studies I volunteered at the ESO’s women’s health clinic where I developed a special interest in women's health – including pregnancy and post-partum care. I completed a variety of post-graduate courses, with a special focus on visceral (organ) manipulation and the effects of organs on the musculoskeletal system. Jaw problems, neck pain, and headaches are also fields of great interest. I firmly believe in finding the source of the pain rather than just treating the symptoms in order to achieve long-lasting results.

 

I enjoy treating a wide range of people, using a variety of techniques from gentle fascial release, neural, cranial and visceral techniques, to structural adjustments and articulation in order to facilitate healing. 

In my spare time I follow my biggest passion – hiking – with the determination to climb every mountain between Milford and Wanaka. On quieter days I practice yoga, mindfulness and meditation.

Belinda McIvor

Originally from a small town in the Manawatu, where I grew up playing a lot of sports, I became interested in the human body and rehabilitation, after experiencing my own sporting injuries during teenage years.

My Osteopathic career began with a strong focus on the sporting world, having had previous experience working with the Warriors and with a local Auckland premier league team supporting them through their injuries. I then diversified and focused my attention on pregnant and post-partum woman, and through this found a real passion working with infants, treating neck issues (favouring one side) postural strains and GI irritations. 

In adult patients I see a lot of neck/upper back pain, along with headaches and shoulder dysfunctions.


I love the opportunity to make a connection with each patient and help them to return to daily life without pain and dysfunction. I am primarily a structural osteopath that utilises a logical approach to osteopathic care, and not only do I provide hands-on soft tissue treatment, but I also offer advice and education tailored to each person.

My partner and I have moved to Queenstown to experience the beautiful surroundings the South has to offer. We are keen hikers and hunters, and love spending most of our spare time outdoors.

Osteopath D.O. M.Ost. (RQ)

Available in Queenstown & Wanaka
Speaks English & Italian

I am originally from Italy, where all my life I've been in contact with the health care world through my mother being a doctor. Having a strong interest in science, especially Osteopathy, I have followed a five-year full-time degree in Osteopathic Medicine at the International College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) in Turin, Italy, where I obtained my D.O. I then obtained my Master of Science in Osteopathy at the University of Surrey in London.

I use a wide range of techniques including structural, cranio-sacral, fascial and visceral, which I can select based on the patient’s needs. I can therefore use direct approaches, such as soft tissue, joint manipulation/articulation and myofascial release, and indirect approaches with fascial and cranio-sacral techniques.

I believe that seeing the patient as a whole is important in achieving the best results in the treatment, as well as working alongside the each patient to support those results in their journey to better health. I have experience treating a wide range of patients including babies, adolescents, athletes and elderly people.

During my free time I love to spend time on my passion of dancing and exercising. The thing I love most however is being able to meet new people and getting to know new things about their cultures.

I am a qualified Acupuncturist, Chinese Herbal Medicine Practitioner, and Tuina Massage Therapist. I have been living, training, and working in Auckland for the last 10 years and am excited to be now working in Wanaka.

 

I love the way that Chinese medicine looks at health and disease depending on the balance of yin and yang. I enjoy continuing to learn how acupuncture works, specifically interpreting traditional Acupuncture with neuroscience.

 

My general approach to musculoskeletal or internal medicine is a combination of body/ear/scalp acupuncture, electroacupuncture, tuina, guasha (scraping), cupping, herbal medicine, and simple qigong movement.

 

My passions in the area of treatment are pain management, musculoskeletal issues, internal medicine including any digestive issues, mental health, and women's health.

Originally born and raised in China, I have been interested in people’s health for as long as I can remember. It is a passion that begun before I started my medical studies.

 

After 5 years of training in Acupuncture: Moxibustion and Tuina, I gained my Bachelor’s degree from Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. And now I am a New Zealand ACC accredited treatment provider, and member of Acupuncture NZ and CMCNZ.

 

I specialise in internal disorders such as immune compromised and people healing from systemic, as well as, external disorders such as acute and chronic low back pain, neck pain and sports injuries. I also have a strong focus on mental health, women’s health and pregnancy treatments.

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine aims to deal with pain and health issues that occur in the human body due to disharmony. My goal is to help people get rid of the pain and discomfort by restoring the balance of the internal and external factors in the human

body.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and running around Queenstown.

Massage Therapist
Diploma in Massage Therapy
Available in Queenstown
Speaks English

Originally from a little town in the far north of New Zealand, Kerikeri, I completed a Diploma in Massage therapy in 2010. Since then I've been in the Wellness industry for 12 years working nationally and internationally. Focusing on different aspects of the role throughout the years, I've found my love of what I do through a holistic perspective. Treating my clients as a whole, connecting the physical, mental, and emotional aspect to someone's healing is where I find the most benefit. Having further trained in remedial and deep tissue massage, this has allowed me to find that perfect combination of deep tissue muscle release and mind-body connection. 

 

The initial contact with my clients to create a safe and comfortable space is paramount. Through this and the healing energy of touch, is where they can allow themselves to unwind, let go of tension and enhance their overall well-being. 

 

Outside of my practice, I enjoy running, painting, yoga and road tripping in my campervan.

Kaisa Foehr

Graduating from Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Finland) in 2011 with a BSc in Physiotherapy and with 13 years of working as a physiotherapist and massage therapist I have a wide spectrum of experience from passive postural problems to rehabilitating sports injuries. I also hold a degree in Finnish holistic body alignment (Kalevalainen jäsenkorjaus) and have studied visceral and craniosacral therapy.

 

Manual therapy combined with tailored exercises and changing daily habits and moving patterns are my base principles for treating patients. I am passionate about getting the best results possible and tailoring specifically to your needs and what you are comfortable with. I’m passionate about my work and getting the best results possible requires commitment from me and the patient. Modern-day life is hectic, demanding, and stressful in many ways, to pause and take time to improve your overall wellbeing is my goal.

When work is done and I’m on Kaisa time you will most likely find me on a yoga mat or in the sauna, usually accompanied by my two awesome cats. Dipping into the lake 365 days a year is part of my daily routine that keeps me going. I also enjoy wandering outdoors, running, gardening, and hanging out with friends.

Nick Penney

I originally trained as an Osteopath at the British School of Osteopathy in the UK in 1980, practicing in the UK and New Zealand. In 1997 I was a member of the group that created the New Zealand Acute Low Back Pain Clinical Practice Guidelines. We were the first country in the world to recognise that what is going on in your life can have a dramatic impact on recovery from low back pain.

I went on to study the biological, psychological, and social factors that contribute to

our experience of pain and act as obstacles to recovery from pain, at The Centre of

National Research on Disability and Rehabilitation Medicine, at the University of Queensland and graduating with a PhD in Musculoskeletal Medicine in 2009. During

this time, I was also an expert panel member in the Australian evidence-based

clinical practice guidelines group.

2014-2021 I ran a multidisciplinary pain clinic in Auckland which consistently produced some of the best patient outcomes of any pain service across New Zealand and Australia.

Now in private practice, I divide my time between Queenstown and Christchurch, offering a bio-psycho-social approach to pain which includes several diagnostic tools and a range of techniques to manage acute, sub-acute and chronic pain.

I also teach mindfulness based cognitive therapy, a first line treatment for depression and chronic pain.

Medicine and healthcare has been a pathway that has always interested and inspired me. 

After a couple years at the University of Auckland studying Medicine I decided that making a life change moving to Queenstown was what I needed at that time to connect and grow with my adventure spirit. 

 

Being able to work closely with a gifted group of individuals has given me the opportunity to be inspired first hand and see the impact they have in many lives. With years in hospitality management, people's wellbeing has always been a priority to me and a subject I feel very passionately about. 

 

When not at the clinic I enjoy rock climbing, running and painting in my down time.
