His clinical practice for riders was established in 2013 and rapidly expanded to treat individuals from all walks of life. Releasing the effects that shock and trauma have on a whole body level as a result of skeletal distortion.
Using a technique developed in New Zealand by founder Dale Speedy, Contact C.A.R.E.®, is a ground-breaking therapy that works directly on the skeletal system of body – it is true bone work. Applying the principles of this therapy, the overall health, performance & mobility of the clients Jonathan is treating rapidly improves.
It wasn't long before word started to travel and Jonathan became a highly sought after practitioner of ConTact C.A.R.E throughout the greater Auckland region and New Zealand.
Working across a wide variety of disciplines Jonathan has a passion for those suffering from the effects of concussion, anxiety, depression, sensory disorders and states of overwhelm. This doesn’t stop him from working with a wide variety of other challenges such as ongoing areas of pain, shoulder injuries, hip & knee problems and much more. Whether you are young or old, lead an active life or are sedentary, Jonathan has a passion for his work that is clearly evident.
Treating every individual as a case by case basis, time is taken to truly understand the situation in a holistic manner. Genuine and willing to listen, Jonathan loves putting the 'puzzle' together in a way clients can easily understand.
A loving husband and devoted father of two young boys. When not involved with treatments his time is with the family and their animals. Writing, research and woodworking are also longstanding interests that round out his days.
