About Us

Green Bay Physio three main principles

Here at Green Bay Physio we have three main principles of Treatment and Rehab

  • RESTORE – This involves restoring the body to baseline after an injury, and will involve plenty of hands-on treatment.
  • OPTIMIZE – Our trained physiotherapists will be identifying imbalances, compensations, and poor movement patterns and correcting these to optimize the way your body moves.
  • ENHANCE – We will be giving you exercises and corrective training to improve your mobility, strength, power, agility, and endurance
  • PROGRESS – As your body adjusts to these changes, we will need to keep progressing your rehab to maintain mobility, strength, and dynamic stability.

Andrew Newmarch

Senior Physiotherapist

Graduating from AUT in 2005 working in private practice and spending large amounts of time in high-level athletic environments, from national level sports teams to health and fitness studios. Currently I am also a technical advisor to LES MILLS INTERNATIONAL for their World Class Group Fitness Programs.

I call West Auckland home having spent the last 10 plus in New Lynn with Kimberly and our 2 kids (Oscar & Emmeline).

I am passionate about ensuring that people enjoy the benefits of physical activity and maintain my own personal fitness by playing soccer, running, gym training and chasing a small white ball around 18 holes.

Through my own personal passion for sports and a keen interest in managing sports-related injuries I have adopted a combination of manual therapy and exercise prescription-based approaches to meeting the challenges of acute injures. These cover rehabilitation through to longer-term maintenance and injury prevention.

I try to create a relaxed, enjoyable environment throughout the physiotherapy process and work with my clients so they can achieve or maintain their health and fitness goals and live a full and active life.

Love living in West Auckland
