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 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.

Seán graduated as a podiatrist from the national University of Ireland Galway in 2017. While completing his undergraduate degree Sean had a chance to see Foot Mobilisation Therapy in action during a placement and the reviews from the patients is something that always stuck with him.Sean worked as a musculoskeletal podiatrist and orthotics would have been a big part of treatment. I found that some patients can get good results from orthotics but there are a number of drawbacks including being totally dependent on the devices and the range of shoes that they can fit in is vastly reduced . FMT offers a more effective treatment plan and under the tutelage of Shaun McCann who has been mentored by some of the leading lights in the Fmt world, I'm starting to see the many benefits for patients using Fmt over orthotic therapy. Seán is fully registered with the New Zealand podiatry board and holds a current Annual practicing certificate.
Prior to studying a Bachelor of Health Science in Podiatry, I suffered an injury to my foot during a football game and was placed into an orthotic to reduce the pain while playing. It was a useful solution at the time, but I believed my feet were becoming reliant on the device, and when I wasn’t wearing the orthotic I suffered discomfort. I also had difficulty fitting them into different shoes and especially football boots and felt that there must be another solution to my problem. Once I had finished my study’s, I worked in a multi-disciplinary setting focusing on musculoskeletal problems, and worked alongside physio’s, osteopath’s and orthopaedic surgeons, further growing my musculoskeletal knowledge and outlook of improving foot function to provide long term change. This led me towards Foot Mobilisation Therapy, an underutilised but extremely effective treatment method for recovery from injury, improving foot function and reducing pain and when combined with exercise prescription, strapping,acupuncture and dry needling provides terrific results for my patients in the Parnell, Auckland clinic. I understand the frustrations of injuries and foot pain as I have been through the experience myself and enjoy working with my patients to help them achieve 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!.
