Anyone wanting to be better at what they do.
Hamish has worked with a wide ranging number of athletes in numerous disciplines. Working in a ski resort, Hamish has become very proficient in assessment and treatment of knees! As a certified Level One Crossfit Coach, Hamish has a special interest in managing crossfit athletes particularly as the sport becomes more popular in Hong Kong. Hamish developed a youth sport academy back in his home town of Queenstown, New Zealand hence has a passion for facilitating youth athletes to fulfil their potential as well.

Philosophy:

Understanding the movement / biomechanic specifics of what a patient wants to be doing is a key to Hamish’s treatment. From here Hamish will assess how you currently move and attempt to equate the two via increasing mobility and promoting stability. Hamish uses fundamental principles of manual therapy combined with adjuncts such as dry needling, exercise prescription and most importantly education.
