About Us

A clinic for everyday Aucklanders, and professional sportspeople

Since 1980, our inclusive, warm and down-to-earth approach to physiotherapy has made us the preferred choice for many of New Zealand’s national sports teams and individuals.

After several years of being predominately a Sports Physiotherapy clinic, we expanded to meet the needs of individuals and families in Central Auckland at every stage of their lives.

World-class physiotherapy with a 40 year track record of success

In addition to helping elite sportspeople, we have been practicing general physiotherapy for several decades. We help everyday Aucklanders with our caring approach, hands on manual therapy skills and superior clinical expertise.
