ThreeSixty Osteopaths, is owned and operated by Holly Royal. Originally from the UK, Holly graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 2009, with Honours. She also won the Third Year Award for highest overall results, and RK Hardy Prize for her dissertation on Low Back Pain.

In the past, Holly has tutored osteopathic technique and supervised clinical competency for the Master degree students at Unitec. She also previously worked for the Osteopathic Council of NZ as a Preceptor for 5 years.

I really love what I do, it is thoroughly rewarding. I started ThreeSixty because I wanted to provide a clinic where people get personal treatment, not be ‘just another number’. My team are hand selected to provide you the best care in town.

On a personal note, Holly is a competitive ocean swimmer, and lives in Whangaparoa with husband James, baby Cleo, and dogs Shadow and Delta. 

James Hughes


James joined our team late last year and has been helping with all things Admin around the clinic. 

He is an excellent cook, and often brings in yummy food for Holly and Amy to try! James has also just started on his own journey into healthcare, through Physiotherapy. James is a first year student at AUT. 

Amy Tinneny-Phillips

Skilled Receptionist and Masseuse

Amy is another essential part of our ThreeSixty team. She joined the clinic in 2018, and brings a calm methodical approach to her receptionist role. Amy works part-time alongside Karin, dealing with all clinic administration matters and the day-to-day booking of appointments. Amy has also been working in ‘face to face’ customer service roles for many years. Her most recent positions have involved working as a swimming instructor and lifeguard for one of the local pool complexes.

More recently, Amy has started providing massage at ThreeSixty Osteo. Her hands know exactly where to find all of those “sore bits”, and can ease them out with firm or gentle pressure – the choice is yours. So if you need a nice therapeutic work over, or a relaxation massage – Amy’s the one for you. 

Amy already has a Bachelor of Applied Science degree, and is currently completing her Masters thesis to become an osteopath herself. She has already completed her practical and theoretical studies, and is pleased to be working towards her goal of qualifying towards the end of the year. Until then, you’ll find her ready and willing to help with your clinical requests via phone or email.

On a personal note, Amy has been learning sign language, and has completed her level 1 Pilates instructor certificate.
