Ever curious about the workings of body & mind, Tim headed off to Chiropractic College in Durban in 2004. Since then his journey as a health practitioner has seen him work across many different aspects of chiropractic and health - from district hospitals in South Africa, to working as a volunteer & clinical supervisor for international NGO World Spine Care running clinics in rural Botswana and Tanzania, to private practice in sunny Central Otago before setting up Sage Health Chiropractic with Roisin in Motueka in July 2016.
Tim is certified practitioner of Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT),. SOT is an holistic chiropractic technique encompassing spinal adjusting, visceral/soft tissue reflex techniques & specific cranial work. This body of work is Tim's primary mode of care alongside various other practices including
Tim also has a special interest in Concussion Management - from baseline testing, post concussive treatment right through to rehab and return to work/play. He is a certified CCMI practitioner
Tim's passion lies in helping people to understand, overcome and be an active participant in their health. Over the past few years, since becoming a father of 3, Tim's interest in pediatrics has expanded and become a real point of interest in his practice.
A love of movement combined with an interest in natural health approaches and a spontaneous introduction to the chiropractic philosophy has led Roisin into the world of Natural Health.
Her chiropractic training has included various practices - Sacro Occipital Technique, Network Spinal Analysis , Neuro Emotional Technique, and Manual techniques. A long standing interest in movement has evolved over time to be a central tenet of Roisin's 'bare foot' philosophy. Growing up with an avid interest in yoga from her childhood , a love of dance and on to later studies of various Natural Movement practices has generated a life long intrigue in how movement informs our way of being and how our way of living and being informs the way we move.
