Sebastian graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in the U.K. in 2006. Before coming to New Zealand in 2011 to join City Osteopaths, he worked in Liverpool and London advancing his cranial, visceral and pediatric osteopathy skills. He has completed courses in advanced osteopathic technique. He has assisted in teaching Paediatric care to post graduate osteopaths. Prior to studying Osteopathy he graduated with a degree in Theology.
Sebastian has spent time in Kenya treating orphaned children in the city and women and children of the Pokot tribe in the desert region. He enjoys working with people of all ages and conditions from babies to the elderly. He has particular skill in treating shoulder injuries and providing pre- and post-natal care for mothers and newborns.
With over ten years in full time Osteopathic practice, Sebastian has developed a gentle approach, easing back the layers of problems and compensations in his patients in order to reach and change the root cause of their condition whether that originates from stressors in the physical, mental or emotional.
"I have been having seeing Sebastian for the last few months, after suffering from neck, shoulder pain and stiffness and lower back stiffness and discomfort. Most of the pain and stiffness I was experiencing has disappeared and my overall posture has improved significantly. Sebastian has also recommended targeted exercises and magnesium and vitamin B all to assist with my overall recovery".
"I have been seeing Sebastian, and I was a little skeptical initially. However he has helped mobilise my back and pelvis to a point I have never had so much movement in my life. He has been so kind and supportive in every way possible and made me feel comfortable at all times. I have urged so many others to book in and see him".
