About Us

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care focuses on the whole body and how the health of the nervous system is influenced by dysfunctional joints, particularly in the spine. A healthier nervous system means a healthier body. Chiropractic adjustments correct spinal dysfunction and help to improve spinal and nervous system health. The nervous system controls the function of all the organs and tissues of the body. Therefore a nervous system working at its best facilitates the healing processes and healthy function of the body.

NET Stress Relief

NET is a technique that looks at the impact of stress and emotions on your health, and is a simple way to check that your body is processing emotions in a healthy way. NET is not a psychological or counselling technique but rather looks to address changes in the body’s physiology in response to stress.

Chiropractic Kinesiology (Functional Muscle Testing)

Our chiropractors use this technique as a method of assessment, not only for the spine, but to analyse areas of tension throughout the body that may be impacting your Whole Body Health.

Visceral Correction Technique

Have you ever had your stomach tied in knots? Sometimes a gentle correction to the right organ in the right way can help relieve tension in the body, and this is a technique we utilize regularly.

Nutritional Supplements & Homeopathic Remedies

We recommend and sell a range of products to support your Whole Body Health when you’re at home. We work hard to source only the best products and only recommend them when we are sure they’ll be of benefit to you.

Functional Spinal Scans

Technology can be very useful, and we use thermal and surface EMG (sEMG) scanning (no radiation or ultrasound involved) to gain insight into the health of your spine. Occasionally, further investigation may be required, in which case our chiropractors will refer you for x-rays or other appropriate tests or examinations.

Custom Made Orthotics

Your feet are very important, and often overlooked. The health of the arches of your feet determine the alignment of your ankles, knees and hips, setting the foundation for spinal and structural integrity. We’ll get a picture of the health of your feet and where necessary, recommend orthotics and/or exercises to reduce the impact of changes in the arches of the feet on Whole Body Health.

Your First Visit

At your first visit, our intention is to get to know you. We will take time to hear your health story and share ways we may be able to assist you towards Whole Body Health.
Your initial consultation involves a thorough assessment of your health so we can deliver the most appropriate care for your needs. We determine physical and physiological stress throughout the body, assessing its impact on your health.

Here’s what you can expect during your appointment:

  • Health Questionnaire
  • Spinal Scans
  • Foot scan
  • Relevant orthopaedic testing
  • Posture and range-of-motion exams
  • A thorough assessment of the spine and other body areas relevant to your presentation
  • Treatment tailored to your situation

This appointment will take between 45-90 minutes.

Your Second Visit

During this follow-up visit, we will provide a report that summarises your current health status and our best recommendations for care based on our findings from your initial visit. You will be given information about what to expect in subsequent appointments, and advice about how you can assist the healing process and improve your health through manageable lifestyle changes.

Regular Visits

At each visit we will seek to find how your health is responding to care and assess your body for tension before any care is provided. This allows us to ensure the right areas are being identified for treatment as your body responds to care.

Do I Have to Go Forever?

You are welcome to have chiropractic care for as long as you wish. We encourage all to adopt a proactive approach to Whole Body Health, seeking to achieve and maintain good health by means of regular care. We find that people are often unaware of when the joints of their spine are not moving well and how this might be impacting their health. Pain is only one indication that there are changes in joint function. With regular chiropractic care we can identify areas of joint restriction before they lead to pain or other significant changes that could impact your health.

Who May Benefit from Care?

People of all ages, and with a wide range of conditions may benefit from care. Those who suffer from common ailments such as headaches and back or neck pain may experience improvement with Chiropractic. Whatever your condition, our Chiropractors will offer a thorough assessment, and build a plan based on your unique findings. Where necessary, we will refer you for complementary or more appropriate care.

We also focus on the impact of stress on people’s health and wellbeing. NET is a methodology to address changes in physiology rather than psychology associated with the body’s stress response. As NET practitioners, we look to identify and address where this critical component is impacting the function of the body.

Chiropractic Training

Chiropractors undertake 5 years of university education, and adhere to strict standards of ongoing professional development requirements. Each of our Chiropractors enjoy the opportunity to continue learning through post-graduate training, gaining new skills and improving on those they already use.

Is Chiropractic Safe?

Chiropractic has an exceptional safety record and chiropractors are trained to adapt their techniques and adjustments to suit different body types and ages of patients. The range of techniques we have available mean we have options in how we can provide care. Some patients are perfectly suited for a firmer technique, while others will require a gentler approach. Whatever you prefer, or whatever your body needs, we can tailor our care to suit you.

While we always endeavour to provide the safest and most suitable care, like any treatment procedures, chiropractic adjustments and other procedures we use can cause adverse reactions. Our chiropractors are very open to talk with you regarding your treatment options to ensure you feel confident in our care and to discuss any concerns you may have about the care we provide.
