Pili Munoz Osteopath, Stillpoint Osteopathy


Pili Munoz

B.App.Sc (Osteo), Grad.Dip (Osteo.Paed)

My name is Pili, and I am the director and lead osteopath at Stillpoint Osteopaths. I was born across the ditch, in Australia, to a Spanish family. I have a teenage daughter, three stepchildren, and a dog (who you will often see at the clinic with me), who are all integral parts of my life. Outside of work, I enjoy attending a Crossfit gym, trying out new recipes and watching new movies.

Over 30 years ago, I began my journey with osteopathy. I graduated from RMIT in 1992, not fully knowing how lucky I was to receive the comprehensive osteopathic education that I did. Being exposed to some exceptional osteopaths and their love for osteopathy in the cranial field (OCF) during my studies, lit a fire of curiosity and passion for osteopathy, that was a driving force in my pursuits for further learning.


Greg Fitchew

BAppsSci, MOst, BEd

I graduated with a Masters of Osteopathy late 2009 and joined Stillpoint Osteopaths in January of 2010. I have also completed graduate training in cranial osteopathy from both the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation and the Biodynamic method.

My early interactions with osteopathy led me to embrace a gentle approach to body work. I also. volunteered for a period at Youth line and studied developmental psychology at the University of Auckland both of which led me to include a patient centered style my own work. I especially enjoy using this approach to help my clients with chronic conditions and complex musculoskeletal concerns. I continue to be amazed by our capacity to compensate and recover from injury. Our systems never stop moving towards health despite the insults they face as we go about our lives.

Janice Huang

M.Ost, B.App.Sc (HB), PGCert.HealSc (Acupuncture), BE

I graduated from Unitec, Auckland, in 2010 with a Master’s degree in Osteopathy.

Ways of life to attain optimal health and true happiness have always fascinated me. Are we eating the right diet? What is a good posture? How about the activities we do day after day, and the thought processes that go on like auto-pilots?

This fascination eventually saw me reluctantly waving goodbye to a career in engineering to study osteopathy. I was attracted to osteopathy because of its comprehensive training, holistic considerations, and the fundamental anatomy and physiology on which it is based.


Sarah Jackson


Hi I am Sarah. I have been practicing Osteopathy since graduating from Unitec in 2004 and specialising in Osteopathy in the Cranial Field (OCF) since 2007. I was always interested in health, but I did not learn of Osteopathy until my twenties and the more I learnt, the more I understood its philosophies and they made sense to me. I like how we never treat just a part; it is always with the whole in mind. I used to work at Stillpoint Osteopaths about 10 years ago. Since then, I have travelled,
continued my Post Graduate Education in OCF and practised Osteopathy part time while having 2 small children.

Osteopath and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Rain Zhao

M.Ost.B.App.Sc (HB), B.M (Acupuncture & Tuina)

I was born in a family of traditional Chinese medicine. When I was a child, I started helping my grandfather grind herbs. After graduating from the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, I practiced for about seven years as an acupuncturist and physical therapist at Beijing Puhua International Clinic.

I came to New Zealand in 2016 and became an ACC registered acupuncturist and have over five years of working experience in Auckland until now.
I have completed my Masters in Osteopathy. My thesis was about the comparison of Chinese
manipulative therapy and New Zealand osteopathy in treating musculoskeletal disorders.

With the appreciation of the holistic approach of traditional Chinese medicine and Osteopathy, I am keen to help my patients relieve pain and achieve optimal health.


Olivia Wells

B App Sci(H.B), M.Ost, Cert PEMF Pract, Cert PEMF Pract (Adv)

Hi, my name is Olivia, I grew up on the beautiful Kapiti Coast and moved to Auckland where I completed my Masters in Osteopathy at Unitec.
Struggling with my own health and pain in my teenage years led me to osteopathy, and I understand and empathise with the trials clients face due to pain, illness and sporting injuries. My personal experience gives me a passion for helping clients get back to their best and regain their quality of life.
I specialise in gentle techniques, osteopathy in the Cranial Field (OCF) and structural techniques when required to be able to tailor sessions to each client’s individual needs.

Sharon Lightfoot-Pound

I have 30 years of experience teaching yoga and am a certified Pilates instructor. In Seattle, I worked for a renowned physical therapist and co-authored the book Move Well on core exercises and posture tips for health. I teach meditation techniques, including Integrative Rest©. My approach is to listen to your history and observe your posture and musculoskeletal alignment in the activities you wish to perform easily. I assess where you need to build strength or flexibility to achieve your goals. You will receive a program of accessible exercises and posture prompts customised to your needs.


Ashleigh Kirkwood

Originally from Northern Ireland, I moved to New Zealand in 2006 via London, where I worked for a successful organic retail business. I joined the Stillpoint team shortly after arriving in the country, and they have since become my New Zealand family.

I take great pleasure in my role in reception, and in being the welcoming face that greets each and every client. I believe your treatment starts as soon as you walk through our door!

Outside of work, my passions include literature, cooking, travel, and exploring my creative side. And if I’m surrounded by friends, with a glass of New Zealand wine in my hand, I’m a happy woman!


Alisha Sturt

Hello! My name is Alisha and I have been part of the lovely Stillpoint team since April 2022 and have loved every second of it! I particularly enjoy being able to welcome and assist our wonderful patients when they come into the clinic or over the phone. I hope to make everyone we see at the clinic feel as welcome as I did!

Alongside my reception/admin position with Stillpoint, I have an active social life and spend as much time as I can with my family! I really enjoy trying new kinds of fitness classes with my friends or going to new places to eat!


Lucia Norrie

I am the daughter of Pili Munoz (our lead osteopath) and I am currently in high school. I have been working at reception since 2020.

I care about making sure people have the best experience possible when coming to the clinic.
One of my passions is human rights and making sure everyone is comfortable, and I aim to bring these values into everything I do.

My favourite things to do outside of school and work are reading, playing netball and swimming.

office morale


Spotlight on the furriest and arguably the cutest member of the Stillpoint family, Kaia. Kaia has been with the clinic since she was a puppy, and in that time has provided of hours of cuddles and general delight.

Kaia is a master in the art of public relations, and always knows whether to give a wet-nosed welcome, a playful ‘yip’, or an invitation to rub her belly. And being of the hypoallergenic variety, her fur won’t give you the sniffles.
While mostly resident in her ‘mum’s’ treatment room, Kaia can sometimes be found in the office, making sure the clinic runs like a well-oiled machine.

Note, that while Kaia is a gentle and loving soul, we are mindful of those who are either nervous of, or simply not eager to be around dogs, and will ensure she is out of sight upon request.
