Tony found his passion for osteopathy after many years training in martial arts. He has added to his qualifications with western medical acupuncture and now finds application for his skills with the elderly, the weekend warrior and with children. Tony is a strong believer in primal movement patterns and the return of the lost skills and movement patterns that evolution developed. Modern living has decreased our access to these natural movement patterns so Tony can often be found running barefoot through the wilderness of the Northwest!

Victor Arriaza Cantos

Osteopath

Masters in Osteopathy

Hi, I’m VĂ­ctor, originally from Spain and trained at Swansea University, UK. As a lifelong martial artist and sports lover, my primary interest revolves around sports osteopathy. However, I enjoy treating patients from all different backgrounds and have recently developed an interest in the management of chronic pain with special attention to all its associated factors. I am keen to do further research into these two areas.
To give you a little insight into my personality, I am naturally a happy person, my current hobbies include rugby and Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, which I am currently a brown belt in and have acquired the grade of Sensei. I enjoy playing guitar and reading, and my guilty pleasure is video games. I am an adventurer by nature, who loves traveling and experiencing new things. I have visited and lived in several countries throughout my life, including America, Ireland, and Wales where I studied for my Osteopathy Master’s degree. I consider that every part of the world has something different to offer and New Zealand has always been at the top of the list regarding beautiful countries to experience, so when the opportunity to come work here appeared, I made sure to not let go of it!
