We do things differently here.

Pain is both an emotional and sensory experience, and sometimes you need to take a different approach in order to make positive changes.

Watch this video where I describe more about my Hybrid Hypno Physio Approach in order to find out how effective it can be for you.

Why choose Rethink Pain Physiotherapy?


Living with Melorheostosis, I have had a lot of personal experience improving how I feel. Any techniques or strategies I will use with you, you can guarantee I've used them myself with positive results.

I've also worked with hundreds of patients over the years with complex, chronic or persistent pain.

With over a hundred presentations provided on various aspects of pain, hypnosis and healing, I am confident in my approach.

I work hard to keep up to date with the literature so you don't need to.


Your time is important. That's why all assessments and follow-ups are 100% one to one, and are scheduled for 30-60 minutes.

This allows for time to really assess and understand the source of pain, and give personalised and effective strategies to improve.

No need for Doctor's Referral

If you are living in New Zealand and have an open ACC claim, or you've recently injured yourself, you can book directly with Rethink Pain Physiotherapy.

If you don't have an ACC Claim lodged, don't worry. We can save you time and money from going to your Doctor by lodging it ourselves.
