Lewis graduated from the British School of Osteopathy, the biggest and oldest osteopathic school in Europe. Before training to be an osteopath, he had a successful career in engineering.
Lewis is the only osteopath in New Zealand to have completed the prestigious GIFT program, at the Gray Institute (USA), working with some of the world's leading experts in rehabilitation. He is also a certified Nike Golf Performance Specialstandworks with golfers to prevent and rehabilitate injuries and also improve their power, strength, flexibility and balance.
By combining osteopathy with principles from the GIFT program, Lewis can perform functional movement based assessments and treatments, which can be tailored to the patients relevant sport or activity. Lewis has a particular interest in treating injuries relating to running, golf and racquet sports, although his approach is effective for anybody that moves.
Lewis’ philosophy is about helping patients get better, quicker, so that they can overcome pain, feel like themselves again and get back to doing what they love to do. He also educates patients in how to self-manage their complaints using personalised exercise prescription and ergonomic advice
Lewis moved to Wellington from the UK, with his Kiwi wife and their two young boys
