Nicky is also a certified provider of the PINC programme, providing physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation for women recovering from cancer in West Auckland.
Nicky’s interest in health and fitness has given her a greater understanding of injury and rehabilitation. Nicky enjoys getting great results from hands-on treatment techniques, dry needling, exercise prescription, and kinesio taping.
More recently Nicky has trained at the Watson Headache® Institute, training based on the Watson Headache® Approach, a protocol for the skilled assessment and management of the upper cervical (neck) spine in headache and migraine conditions. The Watson Headache® Approach is recognised as a scientifically researched method of examination and treatment.
Nicky has also been an advocate for sport and fitness, having been involved in national level athletics as a youth. She has always trained and kept fit and now enjoys orienteering. Her three teenage children keep her busy with their activities outside of work, and her love of travel and adventure is still strong.
