Meet our TeamOSTEOPATHS

At ThreeSixty Osteopathy, we are knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated to our patients. We intend to treat you with as much enthusiasm as if you were a member of our own family, but maintain a highly professional edge to give you the treatment you deserve.

 

Most people like to find out a bit more about the Osteopath they'll be going to see, and we wanted you to get to know our receptionists & other friendly therapists too. 

Amanda Collis B.App. Sci, M.Ost (Hons)

Bachelor of Applied Science, Master of Osteopathy

ACC Registered Practitioner

After completing a 5 year Master Degree in Osteopathy, Amanda was recruited for her outstanding professionalism and warm, caring nature, which is already proving to be popular with our patients. Amanda is an asset to our ThreeSixty team. Her treatments are gentle but effective - she uses a lot of stretching and movement techniques to get your muscles relaxed, and your joints moving better, as fast as she can. Amanda is a really keen believer in giving you 'self-help' tips, and exercises that you can do at home to help yourself get better too.

“My mother was a nurse, and I always knew I'd do something medical. I hadn't even thought about Osteopathy until my own Osteo suggested it - since then, I've never looked back! Helping people get relief from their aches and pains is incredibly rewarding, I'm so lucky to have a job that I love” - Amanda

For her Master's thesis, Amanda completed research on unsettled infants, and has a keen interest in treating pregnant women. The human body is amazing and can cope with drastic changes to its shape - pregnancy is a perfect example of this. If you, or a loved one, are experiencing pregnancy related strains, come and chat, or book in with Amanda. There's no need to suffer, when some gentle Osteopathic techniques can help your body adapt to these postural changes, fast.

Chelsea Forrester B.App. Sci, M.Ost

Bachelor of Applied Science, Master of Osteopathy

ACC Registered Practitioner

As an ex-rhythmic gymnastics competitor, Chelsea originally became interested in Osteopathy through a love of the human body, and the incredible variety of ways it can move. She remembers first hand the challenges we face when our bodies won’t work the way we need them to.  Treatment for a variety of  her own different sprains and strains led Chelsea to investigate the career of Osteopathy, and she hasn't looked back since.

“I just love helping people – times when we struggle with every day activities like getting dressed, or trying to pick things up from the floor, it’s so frustrating! The best part of my job is the big impact Osteopathy can make on someone’s life, usually in just a short amount of time” - Chelsea

From her background in sports, Chelsea has a keen interest in treating athletes - she regularly provides pitch-side treatment for a Rugby team in Waitakere, and helps them with all their pre-game taping and strapping needs. With all the knocks and bumps Rugby players suffer, its no wonder they need an Osteopath on hand to help out! Chelsea is thorough, and leaves no stone un-turned when it comes to identifying the cause of your aches and pains.

"I really love what I do, and helping people by reducing their pain and improving their quality of life is thoroughly rewarding. I started ThreeSixty because I wanted to provide a clinic where people get personal treatment, not be 'just another number'. We treat everyone as if they were a member of our own family. As my team will tell you, I'm a hard task master! But I can promise you that every single treatment we provide is to the best of our ability."

On a personal note, Holly is a competitive ocean swimmer, and looking forward to starting her training for the coming 2017/18 season. She lives in Warkworth with husband James, and dogs Shadow and Delta.

Camelia Lordache

Experienced Massage Therapist 

Camelia brings with her approximately 12 years of experience as a massage therapist. She studied at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies, initially with Relaxation and Aromatherapy massage. She then progressed to learn Deep Tissue massage techniques, Maori massage and Holistic Pulsing. Camelia originally studied as a beauty therapist, but became much more interested in massage component when she saw just how much better it helped her clients feel!

Camelia's thoroughness is second to none, and we are very lucky to have her as part of our growing team. Amanda, Chelsea and Holly find that many patients have incredibly tight muscles, and would really benefit from regular massages. In fact, in a lot of cases, if the muscles are kept in a soft, stretchy condition, rather than being tight and over-used, injury could be avoided all together!

ThreeSixty are the first team in the area to offer 'Prescriptive massage' - if the Osteopaths think that you would benefit from a particular type (or area) of massage treatment, we will refer you to Camelia and discuss exactly what is needed to get you better asap. And when she feels you are ready, she will send you back to us for further Osteopathic work.

This gives our clients a continuity of care that otherwise would be very difficult to maintain. Our top-of-the-range electronic medical notes system lets us share essential medical information between the massage therapist and Osteopaths, without disclosing your full Osteopathic treatment details. Rest assured, we adhere to strict confidentiality regulations, but this type of practitioner interaction enables us to offer you a truly comprehensive care package.

Camelia is also available for Therapeutic massage, with no referral necessary - so if you're just feeling tight and your muscles need some TLC, Camelia will work on whatever area of the body you choose.  

Jocelyn Watkins

Skilled Receptionist

Jocelyn helps to promote smooth and efficient operation of the clinic. Many of you will get the pleasure of meeting her in person upon arrival for your appointment, and chatting over the telephone for bookings and all important clinic matters. Jocelyn has been working in the customer service industry for many years, and loves being on the front desk.

In her personal life, Jocelyn is an active relaxer, and usually gets roped in to doing some kind of DIY at weekends with her husband or family! She is also a talented seamstress, and enjoys doing 'arts and crafts' or baking with her two grand-daughters. (The ThreeSixty team enjoy eating her baking too.)

We are very lucky to have Jocelyn’s assistance and expertise to help us build a busy and successful practice.

Stacey Beardmore

Skilled Receptionist

Stacey joined the ThreeSixty team in May 2017. Her friendly, outgoing nature brings a lovely new energy to our clinic. Stacey is excellent at people management - she has had plenty of experience in the art of negotiation and organisation, which is integral to being the mother of five children! Stacey has a background in Aromatherapy, and used to be a massage therapist herself several years ago. 

Stacey is a self-confessed chocoholic, and insists on 'cake day' most Fridays, which is greatly received by the other team members! She is the perfect compliment to Jocelyn, as they share the role of reception cover for ThreeSixty in Orewa and Warkworth.
