About Clementine Carnus (B.App.Sc.(Complementary Medicine), M.Ost)
Clementine graduated from RMIT University in Melbourne with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Complementary Medicine) and a Masters of Osteopathy. She started studying osteopathy in France, before moving to Australia in 2008 and finally settling in New Zealand.
She was particularly drawn to osteopathy because of its holistic approach to health and well-being, treating the patient as a whole and not as one local symptom. She was always fascinated by the body’s tendency towards self-healing and at the osteopath’s ability to assist in this process.
Clementine enjoys treating a wide variety of patients. She has a particular interest in treating children through to adolescence, sporting injuries and patients with ongoing or chronic pain. She uses an integrative approach to chronic pain management and encourages each patient to develop awareness around the role played by mind and emotions in health and dis-ease.
She strongly believes that empowering the patient to be active in their recovery is key to their journey toward health. Health is not merely the absence of disease, so there is always something more we can do.
As a long-time yoga practitioner, she has a profound understanding of biomechanics, injury prevention and management. She also appreciates the importance of healthy breathing, a healthy diet and a healthy mind.
