LEAD OSTEOPATH

Pili Munoz

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

Having been in practice since 1992 after graduating from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and completing a Graduate Diploma in Osteopathic Paediatrics in 1996, I have had a lengthy and very passionate journey with osteopathy. This has been an integral part of my life for over 20 years in NZ and with Stillpoint. I have continued throughout my career to do postgraduate studies in OCF and since 1998 I have been involved as a faculty member of the SCTF of ANZ.

SENIOR OSTEOPATH

Greg Fitchew

BAppsSci, MOst, BEd

I trained in New Zealand graduating with a Masters of Osteopathy and a Bachelors of Applied Human Sciences from Unitec. My passion for osteopathy began after experiencing the benefits of osteopathic treatment in my own life.
What I enjoy the most about osteopathy is the diversity of practice that it offers, and the continual inspiration provided by the human body’s ability to adapt and heal. I am particularly interested in Osteopathy in the Cranial Field (OCF) and enjoy using this approach to treat people of all ages.

OSTEOPATH

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.
Health and wellbeing have always been my keen interests, and I was attracted to osteopathy because of its holistic considerations, comprehensive training, and the fundamental anatomy and physiology on which it is based.
As an osteopath, I enjoy using gentle manual palpation to facilitate a positive change in patient health. I appreciate the continuing personal growth in each of my working days as I listen to my patients and assist them to alleviate pain and find better health.

OSTEOPATH

Sarah Jackson

BAppSc(HB)M.ost

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.

holistic Nutritionist

Nellie Pigot

Dip Ion, Dip LCNM UK

I trained in the UK graduating from the Institute of Optimum Nutrition in 1999 followed by a 2-year post graduate diploma in Naturopathy at the London College of Naturopathic Medicine. Like any expert, I do research and keep updated on all the cutting-edge data out there. Having spent 12 years working at an Integrative Medical Practice with medical GP’s.  I’ve honed my skills at interpreting diagnostic tests and applying a holistic approach to health. I continue to work closely with GPs as well as with other practitioners in many different modalities. My aim is to get my clients focusing on a good healthy diet and lifestyle that works for them, not for anybody else.

Acupuncturist & Therapeutic Massage Therapist

Rain Zhao

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. Currently, I am a Master's student of Osteopathy. My thesis is 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.

RECEPTION

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!
