MEET THE TEAM
After completing a Master of Chiropractic degree at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic, I came to Dunedin to work as an associate chiropractor for Warren Browne in July 2012. My husband Steve and I loved it here so much that we bought the practice and took over in November 2013 .
I am an experienced personal trainer with over 10 years in the fitness industry. I taught mainstream classes such as aqua-fit, circuits and spin and also alternative classes such as chair-aerobics for the elderly and adults with learning difficulties.
A background in the fitness industry gives me an advantage when prescribing structured and progressive rehabilitation plans, enhancing chiropractic patients' care.
Our aim for the clinic is to expand the services available while always ensuring we provide superior care to the local community.
I’m a Chiropractor with a background in Education and initially trained as a human movement & health teacher at Sydney University. After teaching Health Science and P.E. I moved into Special Needs education before qualifying as a Chiropractor at Murdoch University.
I am a patient-focused chiropractor, experienced in the care and management of musculoskeletal complaints utilising various manual techniques. My goal is to help people reach their maximum health potential and educate them in ways of maintaining it.
With a lifelong interest in health and movement, I always make a concerted effort to consistently improve my skills and knowledge base in the pursuit of helping others.
I moved to Dunedin in November 2016 to be part of the team at Knox Rehab Clinic and have settled into life here, especially enjoying the great walks and cycle tracks that are on offer in Otago.
***Sam will be finishing with Knox Rehab Clinic on 28th July 2020 and will not be taking on new patients in that time. If you have thought about attending osteopathy as a new patient please speak to us about chiropractic.***

I am a registered traditional Chinese medical (TCM) doctor having completed my medical training in China. In 2012, I graduated with a Master degree of Chinese and Western Integrative Medicine from the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and then worked for the Department of TCM in a local hospital. My expertise includes clinical use of TCM (e.g. Acupuncture, Chinese massage, Moxibustion, Cupping, Scraping, Tai Chi, and herb medicine) for musculoskeletal rehabilitation and chronic disease management.
I am currently completing my PhD degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Otago. This PhD training has provided me invaluable experience in combining cutting-edge research findings with my clinical practice. I feel honoured that I can use my knowledge to inform my patients evidence-based clinical decisions, which is scientifically valid and effective.
TCM is powerful for various diseases. If you have an enquiry about TCM, please contact me at the clinic. I look forward to meeting you and helping your symptoms.
