Tonia Peachey is the principal osteopath and director of Premier Osteo + Physio. Tonia has a passion for helping people. She decided to retrain at Unitec and become an osteopath, after working in the Sport and Fitness industry for many years. In such roles as: National Development Director for New Zealand Water Polo; Senior Sport Development Officer at the Hong Kong Football Club; and International Rehabilitation Personal Trainer. Tonia also represented New Zealand in water polo and held various New Zealand swimming records.
Since becoming an osteopath Tonia has realised that there are a significant number of people that are suffering with long term chronic pain and diseases. Unfortunately, these people tend to fall outside of our current acute-care medical model and are being told "there is nothing we can do you just have to live with this." Tonia believes strongly that this is not true. She is currently studying Functional Medicine, which addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. As a Functional Medicine practitioner she spends the time with her patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, she supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
Tonia specialises in treating sport injuries, chronic long term pain and she excels at treating patients with complex medical conditions. She combines her osteopathic and functional medicine skills with exercise prescription to provide an exceptional hands on experience for all of her patients. She understands that everyone is an individual and will always listen to you and explain what is causing your problems.
Review: Paul Cook "My opinion of Premier Osteo Physio, Fantastic! every profession has qualified people in it, but not every qualified professional is great at their profession. I absolutely believe Tonia not only has fantastic combined qualifications for what she does, she also has genuine natural talent at it; clearly this is beyond what training and qualifications can offer! Thanks so much for your help!" See More Reviews

Demonstrator of Anatomy – RMIT University, Melbourne
After graduating with a Master of Osteopathy from Melbourne’s RMIT University in 2011, Kate practised in Australia and Europe before returning to New Zealand in 2015.
Her abilities have been enhanced through working with world-class athletes and musicians, two professional groups that often suffer from musculo-skeletal injuries that can affect their performance and career longevity.
Kate is recognised for her dedication to providing individualised treatment to every patient she sees, from children, athletes and weekend warriors with sporting injuries through to manual workers and older people who are trying to maintain strength and youthful energy for as long as possible. She has mastered many techniques, which allows her to deliver a truly personalised and effective treatment programme.
Before she studied osteopathy, Kate completed a neuroscience degree at Otago University. She also played hockey at a regional level around New Zealand. The treatment and prevention work osteopaths did for her team made sense to her as a neuroscientist, so she was inspired to become an osteopath.
Kate's masters studies involved looking at the current mainstream research designs and how appropriate they are for osteopathy and other complementary medical professions. She believes in promoting osteopathy from the ground up and creating a strong backing of scientific evidence for the osteopathic profession. Still very sporty, Kate is a runner competes in long distance adventure running, and enjoys road running at both the half-marathon and marathon distances, sailing and beach cricket.
Review: Tony Price - Google + "Highly Recommended. After 18mths of pain & frustration dealing with physios and doctors, I found Kate Ramage who took on my frozen shoulder and slowly but surely managed to un-freeze it. Sheer brilliance!"
