Vice President: June Sobye
I come from a farming background and currently live on a life-style block near Katikati.
In 1996 I studied Bowtech Bowen Therapy and have since been in practise, first in Te Awamutu and now, at home and also at the Waihi Beach Natural Health Shop, on one day per week. I completed my Diploma of Homeopathy in 2000.
It has been a rewarding journey, with the greatest joy being, in seeing people moving easier and suffer less.
Curently I am serving on the Executive Committee as Vice President, enjoying a very enthusiastic and progressive time.
