Our Team

City Osteopaths Healthcare Est. 1992 is a warm, caring, professional practice with a very large patient base and excellent reputation.

We receive referrals from GP's, Midwives, allied health professionals and specialists. Most new patients come from word of mouth referrals and our Reg Osteopaths are able to put in an ACC claim for you if you have had an injury. 

Please see our team of experienced and highly skilled practitioners below.

Our Location: We are in the vibrant CBD of Wellington, near the beautiful waterfront and surrounded by popular cafes and shops. We are easily accessible by public transport and there is on street car parking. 

We have satellite clinics in central Miramar and also in Breaker Bay.

We enjoy the support of a full-time professional front desk team and have a wonderful Practice Manager to enable the smooth running of our practice.

If you are a practitioner keen to work in a wonderful practice in the Wellington CBD, please contact us regarding current room availability and send in your CV to the practice manager, Stacey Lewis - practicemanager@cityosteopaths.co.nz

Join our Team

We have a wonderful team and enjoy motivating, training, and empowering new people, from superstar administrators to inspired practitioners. 

We are keen to hear from clinical psychologists, osteopaths and other allied healthcare practitioners.

You may be a practitioner with a few years of experience already. However, talented new graduates will also be considered. 

Our Ideal Osteopath: You are confident, happy, and passionate about osteopathy: helping people out of pain and back to health. You have the ability to understand, listen, and communicate effectively with a wide range of people.
You are always looking to develop your clinical knowledge and skills. You are keen to take on new and exciting challenges. Being able to utilize a range of treatment approaches, ideally including cranial/biodynamic. Over time, you can become more specialised in your chosen field, and we will help promote you on multiple channels to achieve the success you deserve.

We are committed to helping our team reach their potential professionally and personally and provide the environment necessary for you to reach your goals in a caring, professional, and supportive environment.

We provide a learning pathway for our osteopaths of regular 1:1 meetings plus weekly  osteopathic group clinical training.

In addition, our City Osteopaths Clinical Practice Manual  and google intranet site have been specifically written to help you learn how to progress and develop your talents as an osteopath. The principal of our practice has been practicing as an osteopath and teaching osteopaths for over twenty-six years and has extensive post-graduate training and clinical experience to help you grow in your practice. Once we have you 'on our books', you can be in line for the next available position, so apply as soon as possible.
