About Me

Russell Johns


D.O,  M.O.N.Z

Russell graduated with his New Zealand Diploma of Osteopathy in 1987. Ever since then his continuing education has seen him develop expertise in osteopathic visceral and cranial techniques.

He has a large and loyal following that comes with such a long established career spanning decades (Russell no longer works mornings, as a result he takes few new patients and cannot be booked online).  His commitment and dedication to Osteopathy is well proven and countless patients, from new-borns to the very elderly, have benefited from his skills.

He has treated international sports men and women and has been serving the local Christchurch community for most of his professional life. Well known for his work with concussion and head injuries Russell has been championing the benefits of the Osteopathic approach to health care for his whole career.

As you might have guessed he is a keen surfer and a well-known face in the Christchurch surf community.

Russell is a registered Osteopath with the Osteopathic Council of New Zealand (OCNZ) and Osteopaths New Zealand (ONZ).

“I feel privileged to still be involved in the Osteopathic field with the endless opportunities to learn and pass on years of experience to my patients.”  Russell Johns, Osteopath
