Wellington Osteopathic Health

Helping you restore balance in the body


Sally McGrandle

After training at the European School of Osteopathy Sally spent eleven years in an established practice in the UK. Here, she focused on very traditional approaches to diagnosis and treatment and developed a keen interest into the specific and specialised treatment of the neck and migraine complaints. She also enjoys treating maternity and paediatric cases and has worked within competitive sporting environments as an osteopath for acute and chronic injuries.


Jonathan Wheeler

Since qualifying at the British School of Osteopathy in 1989, Jonathan has worked in many roles within the osteopathic profession; from private practices to teaching in Paris to supporting elite athletes to working for the NHS. Since arriving in New Zealand in 2007, he has worked as the advisor to the OCNZ Registrar and has been a member of the accreditation panel for the osteopathic programmes. Jonathan also supports overseas practitioners to help them be allowed to practice osteopathy in NZ.
He brings a wealth of experience, with particular interests in spinal dysfunction, pregnancy, peripheral joint problems in particular shoulder conditions as well as patients with head and facial pain.


Lynda Kay

Lynda is a dedicated Osteopath with a passion for holistic healthcare and a commitment to providing personalised treatment plans, to enhance the well-being of her patients. She thrives on problem solving, and finding individual solutions to patients’ musculoskeletal problems. Lynda is constantly adding to her toolbox by continuously expanding her knowledge and training, and is working through the renowned Barral curriculum which recognises the intricate connection between the body’s organs and overall health. She also has particular interests in the areas of hypermobility, TMJ (temporomandibular) dysfunction, and functional movement, but warmly welcomes anybody who is experiencing pain or movement restriction which is causing limitations in their ability to do the things they want to do!

Lynda only treats patients aged 5 and older.


Caron Shallish

After completing a 5 year Honours Osteopathic degree at Oxford Brookes University, Caron moved to New Zealand in 2011. She has practised in Wellington for over 9 years. Caron has recently moved to Cambridge where she runs a clinic in Leamington, but returns regularly to Wellington to continue to support her patients (we suspect Wellington coffee and a great team may have something to do with it too!).
“I love working across a wide cross section of the community, every person is different. I tend to work with a combination of soft tissue techniques, gentle joint mobilisation, fascial release and cranial techniques. This mostly gentle approach appeals to and suits many different patients.”
