Andrew Aitken - Wednesdays 9am-6pm
Andrew was born in Dunedin, and educated at Otago Boys High School. He continued his education at the University of Otago where he completed a Bachelor of Physical Education (BPhEd), and a Bachelor of Science (BSc). Having completed these qualifications Andrew then worked in London as a personal trainer. After completing his overseas experience he began studying a Bachelor of Information Technology, and worked for two years in the I.T. industry. Realising that this simply wasn’t his passion, he completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Sports Medicine (PGDipSportMed), specialising in exercise prescription, sports nutrition, and ergonomics. From here he entered the five year Osteopathy course at Unitec in Auckland (BAppSc(HB), MOst). His masters thesis was on the topic of Forward Head Posture. Andrew is also a qualified acupuncturist (PGCert (Western Acupuncture)).
Outside of work Andrew possesses broad skills. He has been a representative tennis player as well as professional coach. He has a black-belt in ITF Taekwon-Do, paints and sells watercolour paintings, and enjoys running and triathlons.
With six tertiary qualifications, Andrew is one of the most highly qualified osteopaths in the country. These qualifications give him additional specialised expertise in exercise prescription, sports nutrition, and sports related injuries.
