Fiona Laryn
Osteopath D.O. MSc. Ost.
Director Queenstown & Wanaka

I see a wide range of patients in the clinic, ranging from infants to the elderly with everything from sports injuries and muscular-skeletal problems to more complex cases of ongoing chronic pain involving the nervous system and internal organ disfunction.

 

I work closely with various medical specialists to ensure patients obtain full recovery and their treatment plan is clear.

Josh Thomas Wanaka Osteopath

Josh Thomas
Osteopath M.Ost. Hons, B.AppSci(HumBio)
Director Wanaka

During my studies, I completed my Master’s thesis by analysing changes in fall and fall-related fracture rates of New Zealand elderly in the hope of guiding future prevention strategies for such injuries.

 

During my clinical practice I have developed a special interest in treating short and long term neck related issues and headaches in adults.

Brita Graser Queenstown Osteopath

Brita Graser
Osteopath MBA. MOst.
Available in Queenstown

I have a special interest in women's health – including pregnancy and post-partum care - and 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.

Anna Burgess Queenstown Osteopath

Anna Burgess
Osteopath B.App. Sci.,  M.Ost.
Western Medical Acupuncture

Available in Wanaka

I enjoy the challenge of problem-solving each case, which includes not only looking at the area of discomfort but also investigating whole body function and daily habits to determine the true cause of the issue. I’m a true believer in manual therapy and have experienced first-hand how it improves the overall quality of life through pain relief, increased movement, and vitality.

I spent a year working with the Warriors rugby league team in Auckland. I’m also passionate about treating those who suffer from headaches, jaw pain, neck and shoulder dysfunction as well as women’s health- with a particular focus on treating pregnant and postpartum women.

Laura Randal Queenstown Osteopath

Western Medical Acupuncture
Cert 4&5 Personal Trainer

Available in Wanaka

Throughout my career I have worked with a range of patients including professional rugby teams and Cross-fit athletes. I have continued my learning with further study in Western Medical acupuncture and personal training/rehabilitation for musculoskeletal injuries.

My areas of interest include management of acute and chronic lower back and hip pain. I also enjoy working with pre/post surgical hip conditions & hip osteoarthritis. I take a holistic treatment approach to managing pain, and I strongly believe movement is medicine.

Having previous experience working with the Warriors and with a local Auckland premier league team, I then diversified and focused my attention on pregnant and post-partum woman, finding 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.

Antonia Mathers
Acupuncturist
Available in Wanaka & Queenstown

I value the place all modalities have in healing and particularly appreciate a consideration of each person as an integrated whole; the underlying causes of disease and the safe and effective pathways to achieve natural vitality, emotional well-being and freedom from pain.

I am passionate about helping aid musculoskeletal recovery, mental health conditions and autoimmune diseases.​

Counselling

Jessica Lochte Counsellor Laryn Allied Health.jpeg

My main areas of interest are working with presentations of simple and complex PTSD, as well as different forms of dissociation. Particularly, I enjoy working with the autonomic nervous system (ANS) through somatic and creative means, repatterning neurological safety and defensive responses, to create an integrated state of health and wellbeing (physically as well as psychologically).

 

My approach is collaborative, integrative, and non-directive, aiming to create a space in which experiences of any kind can be explored within the therapeutic alliance.

Health & wellness is my passion and I am thrilled to be working with such a talented team of health professionals.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management after attending the University of Massachusetts & The University of Hawaii. I furthered my education with a 1 year massage therapy qualification in Colorado and obtained a personal training certificate in Queenstown.

Mel Twyman
Clinic Practice Manager

I love working within the health and wellness industry, alongside the ethos of care and attention to those in the community. This is how I approach my role as a clinic manager, giving care and attention to the Wanaka team and their patients.

 

I came to the clinic having had a 15 year career as a police officer (where I earned extreme skills in generally bossing people about) both in the North and South Islands, followed by running my own business for several years.

 

When not in the clinic you can find me studying towards my degree in Counselling, off for a run with our two dogs in tow, or if I'm really lucky, under a shady tree with a good book.
