David Pentland

Registered Acupuncturist
(Practice Principal)

I have been practising Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine since 1986. My early years were spent travelling before I was fortunate to be able to spend time with Mother Teresa in the house of the dying and destitute. It was at that point, I knew that this was my calling. I enjoy being given the opportunity to help people in the community.

I have a strong interest in musculo-skeletal problems. I believe that there should be “no prolonged treatment without results.” Over the years, I have been excited to have built a great team of practitioners in a well-established clinic with a good rapport with General Practitioners and Specialists in the Sunshine Coast. I pride myself on our teamwork and make sure that the patient comes first and gets the best possible treatments and results.

I have recently completed my Masters in Five Element Acupuncture and enjoy sharing this ancient art of acupuncture with my patients.

Kristan Turner

Remedial Massage and Bowen Therapist
(Associate)

I have been working in the practice since 1998. My journey began as Receptionist and assistant massage therapist. My love for this field led me to complete my Remedial Massage qualification in 2003 and further training as a Bowen therapist in 2015. Through these modalities, I am able to treat and relieve pain and inflammation within the body. I look at the whole person and use touch and intuition to guide my treatment.


I am also qualified in the use of Australian Bush Flower Essences, which work on the emotions. I also uses Schuessler tissue salts to bring the body into balance as mineral deficiencies may be present. These practices are great additions to my treatment, enhancing the results further.

I was lucky to work as a therapist during the London 2012 Olympic games. Shortly after graduating I migrated to Melbourne where I worked for 3 years and undertood additional training in visceral and biodynamic osteopathy. I came to Queensland to do a 12 month locum position in 2018 and fell in love with the lifestyle here.

I am passionate about providing my patients with the best care, tailored to your needs, wants and goals. To do this, I utilize a range of techniques including dry needling, cranial osteopathy, stretching and manipulation. Whilst I treat people from young to old, I have a special interest in the treatment of children and in women’s health, particularly expectant mothers.

Bronwyn Claassen

Physiotherapist

I grew up in Caloundra and after a life and career of travel, I am back and looking forward to finding my place in this fabulous community again. I left Caloundra High and went to Kelvin Grove (now QUT) and did a dance degree. This lead me into Physio and by 1996, I began my exciting career that has taken me all over the world. I have toured as company physiotherapist for the musical CATS and also Cirque du Soleil and House of Dancing Water.

The experience has given me many unbelievably talented friends all over the world and although I specialise in performers, you don't have to be a singer, dancer, actor aerialist, acrobat, stunt worker, cheerleader, musician or clown to see me. Every body is different and I am dedicated to helping each patient move better, understand their own body and manage injuries, movement dysfunctions, aches and pains to achieve the best outcome I can.

I have a big basket of many manual therapy skills including muscle energy techniques, visceral manipulation, sports physiotherapy, vocal physiotherapy and dry needling. I have also been a clinical Pilates instructor for over 25 years and tend to suggest to my patients some home exercise programs and self-management.

Dr. Meisha Krogh

Osteopath
(Associate)

As an osteopath, I see my role primarily as a problem solver. My hands are the tools by which I diagnose and help to resolve problem areas in the body. This may involve massage, specific stretching, joint manipulation, or gentle unwinding of tissues.

I feel very grateful for the opportunities I have had to assist people with chronic pain issues such as osteoarthritis. Osteopathic treatment is based on the principle of the body's own healing mechanisms. My approach is focused on enhancing these functions by recognising the connections within the person's structure and with their movement and posture.

The aim is to create space and balance in the tissues to help them function. Together with hands-on treatment, I may also prescribe specific exercises or give general lifestyle advice.

I have a young family and love to treat babies, kids, and pregnant mums. Reflecting these interests has led me to pursue extra studies in the areas of pediatric and obstetric treatment as well as cranial osteopathy, including cranio-dental development.

As a local resident, my family and I love the lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast and all it has to offer. Before starting at My Health and Wellness Centre, I had a long break from the workforce to spend time raising a family and supporting my husband in his business.
