Making you feel better   —   Back to Health and staying well


Fees - Osteopathy or Acupuncture (or both): $80 — Children, full-time students (under 22): $70
Please note that I do not myself treat infants, and only treat children from 5 years and upwards. If you require an osteopath who treats children please see the Osteopathy Children and Infants page.

The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) provides personal injury cover for all New Zealanders and also temporary visitors. You will need to fill out a form when you visit your Osteopath (or GP).

ACC surcharge: $45
ACC surcharge for children (under 17), full-time students (under 22): $35

No GP referral is required for ACC. I can register an accident for you with ACC.

No EFTPOS, cash or cheque preferred. Internet bank transfers: KiwiBank 38-9008 0219470-00 (account name: Christchurch Osteopathy Acupuncture Limited)

There is no charge for changing or cancelling an appointment. However a $45 cancellation fee may be charged for failing to attend, changing or cancelling an appointment at less than 4 hours notice.

These fees offer exceptional value for money for a highly experienced practitioner, after-hours service, real time internet bookings (you can easily choose the appointment time that suits you best, and book in yourself online).

In addition you benefit from a treatment time of 30-45 minutes (sometimes longer) far more than other clinics. Also, if required and/or requested you can receive Acupuncture in addition to Osteopathy (with no additional fee). Medical insurance can often cover Osteopathy fees.

You will receive treatment from myself, Michael Inman, not an associate or locum Osteopath. I only work from Christchurch Osteopathy Acupuncture at 88 Linwood Avenue, Christchurch, and am available to personally answer any questions you may have about Osteopathy or Acupuncture treatment, and its relevance to your own condition.


“After injuring my back a year ago I was desperate to return to work, but was unable tolerate prescribed medication due to side effects, and physiotherapy due to pain.
I visited Michael after finding him on the internet. From the first session I was greatly impressed with Michael’s professionalism, warm friendly manner, and great knowledge of the body. My pain has greatly improved along with my understanding of my back problems with Michael’s help. I will continue to see Michael as required, and highly recommend him to others.”

Stephen (age 28)

“Have seen Mike on and off for the past few years to treat lower back, neck and posture. Always reliable and results speak for themselves. I often refer people to Mike Inman for structure and alignment issues as his many years of experience ensure he knows how best to treat. Michael always aims to treat so that you get the fastest benefits and offers advice on other forms of exercise — anything that will benefit you in the long run. Trustworthy.”
Simone (age 35)

“Mike has helped me tremendously with a problem of severe lower back pain. I was very impressed with his gentle & skilled technique & I can strongly recommend him to anyone who may feel a little nervous about consulting an osteopath. At no point did I ever feel that he was being rough or heavy handed in his manipulations, quite the opposite in fact.”
Deborah (age 45)
