Why We're Here

Helen Tufui is an experienced physiotherapist, graduating from Otago University in 2003. After a mild concussion injury and suffering from Headaches and Migraines, Helen researched potential treatments that looked at the source of the problem. Becoming in control of her pain and symptoms was life changing. Helen's passion is driven by positively impacting the quality of life of others.

Studying through the Watson Headache Institute, Helen became a certified Watson Headache Practitioner and at that time was one of only 24 certified practitioners worldwide. 

After returning home to Invercargill, Helen opened the first dedicated Headache clinic of its kind in New Zealand.

Helen has over 10,000 hours of practical experience using this technique and many satisfied clients.

This cutting-edge technique is modified from traditional physiotherapy techniques and requires excellent manual therapy skills.

Since 2014, clients have been travelling from all over New Zealand, Australia, USA and Asia to attend The Headache Clinic.

To accommodate this demand and make treatment available in more regions, The Headache Clinic has grown into a network of 7 clinics across New Zealand - Auckland, Cambridge, Nelson, Rangiora, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill. Our 8th clinic will open in September 2022 in Wellington.

To deliver the complete package our skilled consultants work on the dysfunction that is identified as well as providing you with strategies that can be worked on between appointments. Some of these strategies may include; postural correction, biomechanical assessment, movement pattern correction, lifestyle assessment or parasympathetic nervous system stimulation to help Headache and Migraine sufferers take control of their symptoms. Our post-concussion clients will undergo assessment in many systems to identify the source of their ongoing symptoms.

We fully appreciate how much the symptoms of Headache and Migraine can alter your everyday life.

At The Headache Clinic we aim to offer a life-changing service to all of our patients.
