Western Medical Acupuncturist
Josh grew up in Whangarei, Northland until he relocated to Auckland to complete his Masters in Osteopathy.
Growing up, Josh always knew he wanted to end up in a career that would be different every day and involve interaction with many interesting people.
This combined with his interest in Science and in particular, the function of the human body influenced his decision to become an Osteopath. During his studies, Josh completed his 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. Josh has a special interest in dealing with neck and low back pain and their resultant deficits such as headaches and sciatica.
Josh’s family has also been involved in the early childhood industry for the majority of his life and Josh joins them in running WanaExcel, an early educational facility in Wanaka.
