Welcome to Better Bodies Osteo, situated on the beautiful North Shore of Auckland! Osteopaths employ a variety of hands-on techniques such as gentle manipulation, mobilization, targeted pressure point release, soft tissue release, stretching, and patient education to help relieve pain and discomfort, and to improve body movement and enhance overall well-being.

What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a comprehensive medical practice that takes a holistic approach to healthcare. It goes beyond just focusing on the local muscles and joints, acknowledging that pain and discomfort can come from various sources within the body. Osteopathy considers the interrelation of different body systems, such as the internal organs, respiratory and circulatory systems, ligaments and connective tissues like fascia. By doing so, it aims to treat the patient's pain and discomfort as a whole. The holistic approach of osteopathy is well-recognized and accepted in New Zealand, by ACC, and worldwide.

What your osteopath treats:

Are you seeking an effective remedy for lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, knee pain, poor posture, or limited mobility? Consider osteopathy as a potential solution. Our osteopath, Ray, has over a decade of experience assisting individuals from diverse backgrounds. He conducts a comprehensive evaluation of your body through movements and tests to pinpoint the root cause of your pain or dysfunction. Recognizing the uniqueness of each person, Ray devises a tailored treatment plan for you. Explore our Google reviews to discover how individuals across various age groups have benefited from osteopathic care.

Multidisciplinary approach


If we are not seeing the expected progress with your condition, you will be referred to another medical professional at no extra cost. For instance, a meniscus tear in the knee that is unlikely to respond to osteopathic treatment would be referred to an orthopedic specialist for further assessment. Rather than delaying treatment for months—a situation some patients have encountered elsewhere—our goal is to deliver the most effective care promptly. This includes referring you to the appropriate specialist if we do not observe the expected progress. Typically, most patients see improvement within the first few treatments.


As we are located within a gym, we often encounter numerous athletes suffering from injuries who seek treatment to enhance mobility and boost their functional performance. Similarly, Ray frequently treats office workers who exhibit rounded shoulders, tension in the upper back and shoulders, neck pain, and headaches resulting from poor posture or extended screen time. Nonetheless, individuals of various ages and walks of life have realized the advantages of osteopathic treatment. 

We look forward to meeting you!
