We are a busy clinic in the rapidly growing Auckland suburb of Hobsonville. Our clinic rooms are within a bustling, well established Physiotherapy practice and right next to the local GP. Within the clinic space, we have a custom built workroom where we modify orthotics on site.
Our goal is to provide a place of healing that empowers people to engage in their lives more fully. We aim to provide our clients with honest advice and recommendations in order to achieve overall health through the mechanism of their feet. Our philosophy is to treat everyone as individuals and shape their treatment appropriately. We work closely with other allied medical professionals to ensure the best treatment possible.

Lauren graduated from AUT in 2010 with a Bachelor of Health Science, majoring in Podiatry. Since then she has completed a postgraduate Diploma at AUT on the MindBody aspect of health and wellbeing.
