She then continued her clinical education through courses offered through the Barral and Upledger Institutes in New Zealand, Australia and the USA, significantly broadening her skill and interest base. These studies included training in Visceral, Vascular, Neural Manipulation and Manual Articular techniques and CranioSacral Therapy.

Rosie maintains an extensive clinical practice treating adults and children with a broad spectrum of clinical presentations, from elite athletes to gastrointestinal and pelvic conditions, from post-surgical to post-trauma conditions, amongst many others. She enjoys the challenges presented by this wide range of patients and utilizes her extensive training in her approach to treating them.

In 2010, Rosie was invited to be a Teaching Assistant at courses teaching the Barral Visceral Manipulation curriculum and has since assisted across the breadth of the Barral Institute curriculum, both locally and overseas. She also runs study groups in New Zealand and Australia. In 2015, Rosie became a Certified Visceral Manipulation Instructor for the Barral Institute and now teaches VM1, VM2, VM3, VM4, NM1, NM2, NM3 and LT1 in New Zealand, Australia and internationally. Rosie is the eternal student herself, whilst now also immensely enjoying using her teaching skills to open the door to the world of visceral manipulation for an increasing number of practitioners.
