Community | Collaboration | Connection
A patient's health care and well being is very important to me.
I am very particular who I collaborate with to ensure my patients receive gold-standard quality of care.
Below are a list of practitioners, clinics, companies, and products I currently work with in New Zealand, and still connect with overseas.
Boutique Clinic - Newmarket
I currently work at Auckland Physiotherapy 2.5 days a week (Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday). The values and ethos of this company deeply aligned with mine. It is a beautiful clinic, with an incredible team, and I feel privileged to be a part of it.
"At Auckland Physiotherapy, we work in collaboration with you to get you back doing what you love, better than ever. With Master's, Senior, and specialised Physios, Massage Therapists, coaches, and instructors, our team can provide multiple tiers of treatment to ensuring you get the right person to help you on your recovery journey. Treatment is completely personalised and moves you as quickly as possible from pain to recovery, recovery to strength, and strength to wellness."
MCKENZIE INSTITUTE NEW ZEALAND
Qualified Credentialed Therapist under Scholarship
"This philosophy of active patient involvement is trusted and used by clinicians globally for the assessment, treatment, education and empowerment of patients with back, neck and extremities disorders."
Since graduating University and becoming a credentialed Mckenzie therapist, it has taught me how critical it is to empower the patient to take on their own journey of self healing and recovery. Education is a critical role we have as Physiotherapists, and this method combined with other treatment options can create successful outcomes.
VANESSA WERNER BIRTHCARE
Vanessa is a prenatal educator and Birth and Postpartum doula based in Auckland supporting women and nurturing new families.
“It all starts with the mothers. This is why the support I offer is my true commitment. The work of a birth and postpartum doula must always be of good intention and integrity.”
It is Vanessa’s passion to bring forward the right education around childbirth and in doing so, creating a respectful birth culture with a strong sense of community, support and resource.
HOUSE OF HEALTH
The House of Health is a Natural Health Clinic located in Mt Albert, Auckland, New Zealand. They are a consultation hub of leading naturopaths and nutritional consultants including Sharon Erdrich and Emma Gardiner who I commonly refer my patients to.
They blend together the wisdom of the ages with traditional herbal medicine and nutritional foundations. Their naturopaths’ are trained to use natural products, lifestyle changes, and dietary adjustments to balance your health issues. They are experienced in pathology testing and diagnosing your stomach issues. They have diagnostic tests including breath tests that help find the cause of stomach problems. They have bespoke specialty products that their professional consultants can recommend to you based on your personal circumstances.
Digestive dysfunction, irritable bowel syndrome and bacterial infections are only some of the causes of poor gut health.
They are also available online for telehealth consultations.
IMPROVE YOUR SLEEP & ENERGY
Everyone is familiar with the feeling of being over exposed to blue light. For office workers, it can be headaches or migraines, tired or irritated eyes, and the digital eye strain brought on by hours focusing on a screen under harsh artificial lighting. For those who like to unwind at the end of the day by gaming or watching a few episodes of their favourite show, it can feel like the strange restlessness that doesn’t let you get to sleep.
Each of these problems can be traced back to our blue light consumption. Excessive exposure to blue light can be harmful to our eyes, sleep, and to our health and wellbeing. Posing problems long term by inducing degenerative problems in our eyes and disrupting the normal biological processes of the body.
You can combat these problems by reducing your cumulative blue light exposure with the use of BlockBlueLight glasses, and altering the lightbulbs in your home.

GREEN 8 EMF SUPPORTING PRODUCTS
In 2018, I had some eye-opening sessions with a Kinesiologist. As part of her initial examination, she assessed my nervous systems response when I was holding my cellphone. It was evident that my strength on testing was reduced. The EMFs (Electromagnetic Fields) we are exposed to everyday by smartphones, laptops, bluetooth devices, wifi etc. have an effect on our body. It was extremely fascinating to me given the field I work in.
After doing my own research, I decided to take her advice and try some of the Green 8 products. My sleep finally started to improve and I was feeling more refreshed and not requiring coffee to give me energy in the morning. It continued to improve even further when I also started turning off the phone/wifi among other melatonin enhancing methods - e.g. monitoring light exposure in the evening, healthy eating and earlier eating times, mental wellness practices and appropriate types and timings of exercise.
"As an electromagnetic being, a person reacts with his own body’s vibrations to exterior vibrations. When cells are disrupted by negative information, biological processes are thrown off balance resulting in stress for body and mind.
The GREEN 8 GOLD® technology may neutralise the negative frequency of the electromagnetic fields by emitting positive frequency.
Behind this is the principle of interference: in a 180 degree shift, a positive vibration is set against the negative interference frequency. It may harmonise the negative information, gently eliminating the stress on living organisms. This phenomenon of destructive interference is also known from noise-cancelling headphones: noise waves created by an external source and sound waves created by the headphone speaker cancel each other out. The result is silence."

My time spent at Udara was one of the most rejuvinating and relaxing experiences I have ever had. I established some sound relationships with managers and employees here. HAVEN WELLNESS will be hosting retreats here once we are able to travel again.
