Matthew Firman

After completing a diploma in Sport and Exercise Science in 2012 he worked as a personal trainer before progressing through to strength and conditioning for rowing teams. From here he advanced to an Olympic weightlifting coach.  Matthew subsequently completed a certificate in therapeutic massage in 2019 through the Wellington School of Massage Therapy. Working as a massage therapist inspired him to want to offer more and lead to pursuing a career in osteopathy.

Matthew enjoys working with all individuals from acute injury management to persistent/ chronic pain. Matthew understands the importance of keeping people involved in what they are passionate about and believes an interdisciplinary approach is often useful. Matthews sessions are tailored to your needs and incorporate a balance of manual therapy, education, and home exercises to help empower you on your rehabilitation journey. 

Outside of work and owning a physiotherapy practice with his wife, Matthew enjoys keeping fit through functional movements, and loves to spend time with his partner and two young children.

Matthew is available on Tuesdays and Fridays at Halswell Rd Clinic. You can also book with him on Mondays and Thursdays at our Wairakei Rd site.
