meet Bernie Landels

Author and Massage Therapist

Bernie’s journey into working with the body began in 1996 at the New Zealand College of Massage (NZCM), where she gained a Bachelor of Health Studies (Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy). She went on to teach clinical massage at the NZCM from 1999 while also working in private practice, before becoming the owner and director of the college until 2011.

While working with adults presenting with pain and postural ‘issues’ Bernie started asking the question – what if the ‘issues’ started developing in the earliest years? This burning question was the catalyst for Bernie to embark on writing Finding Their Feet: an accessible and practical guide designed for parents and carers, to equip them for the most important role they will have – guiding their child’s development.
Described as “a parenting book like no other” ‘Finding Their Feet – every parent’s guide to milestones and movement’ was released this week in the UK.
Bernie is a new empty-nester, with two grown-up young sons. She continues to work in private practice in Oxford, UK, working with all ages in clinic whilst spreading the word about the importance of the growing foot.
