Business Description

Celia Monk
Dip Phys (Otago), Dip MDT, MNZSP, MINZ
Consultant in MDT (Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy®)

With more than 20 years experience in physiotherapy and treating musculoskeletal conditions and injuries, Celia Monk has a long standing reputation for helping her patients get active and pain-free.

Celia began practicing as a physiotherapist in 1989 at Lower Hutt Hospital. She then broadened her experience; first by working in private practice in the Wellington region, then managing a McKenzie Institute practice and finally owning her own practice, the Wainuiomata Sports Injury and Spinal Centre.

Celia’s passion is to help people achieve their potential and live life to the full – whether that is through pain-free functional activity or by discovering real value and purpose in their lives. With this in mind, Celia’s life took a change of direction. For 3 years, she worked as a Youth Pastor and Training, Networking and Financial Coordinator where she helped to provide leadership and networking opportunities for youth pastors and counselling and crisis intervention for young people.

Having worked at the McKenzie Institute early in her physiotherapy career, Celia saw first-hand how patients could treat their own backs using the McKenzie Method and become pain-free. Her interest in the McKenzie Method blossomed and in 1993 she gained the International Diploma from the Institute. By 2003, she was Chairman of the McKenzie Institute and by 2007, a qualified McKenzie Instructor.

Celia is also a member of the NZ Society of Physiotherapists, the NZ Sports and Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Association and the McKenzie Institute NZ.

Celia brings a sense of fun and adventure to everything she does. She also has a high level of empathy for her patients as she was badly injured in a skiing accident and used all her skill and experience to treat herself and get life back. When she’s not at the clinic or teaching, Celia loves to garden, ski, get outdoors, entertain friends and enjoy music.
