Jodi Waugh is an Osteopath with more than 10 years’ of international clinical experience. She is registered with the Osteopathic Council of New Zealand. Jodi treats clients of all ages for a wide range of health conditions from postural and musculoskeletal issues, to more systemic health concerns such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, gastro-oesophageal reflux (heart burn), pregnancy related issues, fatigue (post-infection or glandular fever related), post-surgical scar adhesions, menstrual pain, migraine headaches and insomnia. She tailors her client treatments from a full range of osteopathic techniques including cranial, visceral, soft tissue, fascial release techniques and manipulation.
Jodi completed a Masters in Osteopathy in Auckland, New Zealand, and ran her own osteopathy practice in Nelson, New Zealand prior to moving to Hong Kong in 2014. She has conducted academic research on harmonic motion in the body and how different injuries cause damping effects in cyclical activities such as running. Jodi also lectured and tutored in Osteopathic Theory and Technique at the Unitec Institute of Technology in Auckland.
Further training in various osteopathic techniques and Applied Kinesiology, allows Jodi to complement other client treatments with these therapies, as physical presentations with many chronic conditions often have an associated emotional/stress component. As a trained yoga teacher, she gets immense satisfaction advising people of simple exercises and stretches that reverse chronic desk posture and relieve overuse pain syndromes. Her knowledge of respiratory physiology and pranayama enables her to give practical breathing exercises that shift stress patterns in a sustainable way and increase energy.
Jodi is a keen barefoot style trail runner, climber and yoga teacher.
