Shaun McCann – has considerable experience with manual podiatry therapies and the management of lower limb problems. Having prescribed orthotic therapy for several years, Shaun recognised the limitations of orthotics beyond the treatment of symptoms.
Frustrated with the confines of traditional podiatry, Shaun undertook postgraduate training in FMT in Sydney – a technique that he believes can not only alleviate foot pain, but correct foot function and structure in the long term. Having personally dealt with foot problems, Shaun underwent a course of FMT himself, to ensure that he could provide his Tauranga podiatrist patients with the best level of care. He is now confident in saying that he no longer relies on orthotics and his feet feel stronger.
Mandy has many years experience in lower limb health including all aspects of biomechanics and gait analysis. Mandy first started her career as a registered general nurse and specialised in Podiatry after graduating at the University of Salford in 2011.Since then she has worked alongside many other health care practitioners including chiropractors, physiotherapists, and other podiatrists specialising in musculoskeletal biomechanics and orthotic therapy. In the last 2 years she has worked extensively with athlete’s and high risk clients using orthotic therapy. Not getting the results she quite expected she wanted to be able to give her patients treatment which would not just offload their area of tissue stress. Frustrated with this for the last year she has been specialising specifically in Foot Mobilisation Therapy. Working and mentored by Shaun McCann (Tauranga) who has previously been mentored by the world leading foot mobilisation podiatrists including Ted Jedynak and Daniel Fitzpatrick. Finally an alternative therapy for my patients which helps reduce foot problems and complications. She can also confidently say she no longer needs the use of orthotic therapy after doing the treatment herself. No more toe pain and she has already successfully treated patients with Foot Mobilisation Techniques with fantastic results already. Mandy is fully registered with the New Zealand Podiatry board and holds a current Annual practicing certificate.
Stephanie spent two years in America studying Health Science and playing college level volleyball, which is where she developed a passion for lower limb biomechanical injury and rehabilitation. Stephanie decided to return home and further her knowledge in the lower-limb by studying a Bachelor of Health Science in Podiatry. A recurring lower limb sports injury lead Stephanie to reassess her treatment options and found that through a course of Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) and exercises she gained a stronger base of support and no longer required orthotics in her Volleyball shoes. Stephanie sees that podiatry is constantly evolving and that it is important to stay at forefront of this ever-growing profession. She believes FMT is a treatment method highly underutilised in lower limb biomechanical injuries and that is why she chose to specialise in FMT. Stephanie utilises a range of therapies alongside FMT such as; exercise prescription, dry needling, acupuncture and strapping. Through FMT Stephanie is able to; empower her podiatrist patients in Parnell, Auckland to take charge of their injury and give them the tools to strengthen their feet and reach their goals.

I have no pain in my calves or feet and I can now wear my ballets flats and high heels with no pain!.
I've noticed a significant change in my bunions. My feet feel a lot more free!.
I'm so relieved that I did the treatment because I was told, surgery was my only option for my feet.
For the first time my feet are pain free, I don't wear orthotics anymore and my bunions feel and look great! Highly recommend!.
