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’s practice is heavily influenced by Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), of which he is a certified practitioner. SOT is an holistic chiropractic technique encompassing spinal adjusting, visceral/soft tissue & specific cranial work. He is also certified in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) a comprehensive movement-based diagnostic system assessing dysfunctional movement patterns.
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 to two little ones, Tim's interest in pediatrics has expanded and become a real point of interest in his practice.
Roisin's interest in movement was nurtured from a young age as she explored yoga under her first (and longest) mentor - her 'yoga teaching mother'. Her love of yoga has played an integral role throughout her training and clinical career as a chiropractor.
Roisin has worked within a wide scope both in private practice and working as a locum throughout New Zealand, Australia and then Botswana and Tanzania as a clinical volunteer for World Spine Care.
Roisin is a certified Restorative Exercise Specialist (RES) through Katy Bowman's Nutritious Movement Institute & a certified MovNat instructor. She has a continued interest in the areas of 'natural' movement practices & movement based lifestyles, pre and post natal health, and pediatrics. Roisin enjoys working with woman, especially during pregnancy and postnatal to support mum and bub through an enjoyable, rewarding pregnancy and an empowering birth experience.
