the team

Queenstown Osteopathy is a fantastic working partnership between Samantha Wright & Katrina O'Neill.

sam wright

Sam graduated in 2001 from the RMIT University osteopathy programme in Melbourne and has been practising ever since. She has worked as a lecturer and clinical tutor at the School of Osteopathy at Unitec, Auckland and an examiner at both Unitec and RMIT. Before studying osteopathy she obtained an honours degree (majoring in physiology) from Monash University.

She has been working in Queenstown for the past nine years and finds the people "incredibly proactive in maintaining good health". A keen mountain biker, climber, adventure racer and more recently BC skier, she knows all about the excitement of wanting to get out there and the risk of injuries and eagerness. She lives her philosophy "keep moving" and will do her best to keep her patients enjoying life.

Sam has a particular interest in vertigo, shoulders and hips, arthritic necks, long term postural problems and pregnancy issues. Sam is a problem solver, straight up and loves a challenge, both professionally and personally.


katrina O'neill

Katrina graduated in 1991 from the College of Osteopaths in London. She practised in the United Kingdom for nine years before moving to Queenstown in January 2000.

She particularly enjoys working with old, chronic injuries (and resolving them of course!). She likes to motivate patients to do more self-help exercise so they only need to see her occasionally for maintenance.
