Chiropractic care is the keystone to an effective, safe and natural approach to healthcare. Chiropractic is a unique therapy primarily concerned with correcting and restoring motion to the spine and the optimum function of the nervous system. Clear communication of nerve signals from the brain to all the organ systems of the body is crucial in aiding the body’s own natural response to healing and recovery in response to any stressful event caused by injury or pain. Clear communication along the nerves allows you to heal and recover naturally, and help you avoid the use of drugs and their possible side effects and invasive procedures such as surgery.
The chiropractic adjustment has profound effects and for this reason, is why different people see a chiropractor and experience many benefits for many different health issues. You are never to old or to young to benefit from Chiropractic care. We look after patients that are just a few days old to healthy vibrant 90 year olds.
Like regular visits to the Dentist and daily brushing, many of our patients benefit from regular chiropractic check ups, choosing to continue their chiropractic care to help keep their spine and nervous system healthy and functioning as optimally as possible, as part of a general wellness plan as well as helping to improve joint mobility, reduce stiffness and providing long term pain relief.

Massage Therapy is not a luxury. Massage plays a significant role in maintaining health of your body and mind and compliments your chiropractic care perfectly. Massage therapy has multiple physiological benefits, increasing blood flow to tense and fatigued muscles, improving muscle tone and function, alleviating joint and muscle pain, helping to restore healthy movement of your joints and helps create balance and relaxation, increasing a sense of wellbeing and vitality.
The art of soft tissue release can unwind the harmful effects caused by the build up of the daily stresses and strains that create muscular imbalances of our postural muscles that work to hold our spine up all day. Deep trigger point pressure can act to release tension and scarring from the deeper layers of connective tissue called fascia that help protect and move our joints.
Chronic muscle tension created by our stressful lives, aches and pains from trauma and old injuries can be a real cause of recurring episodes of pain and re-injury, so massage and the correction of faulty muscle tension plays an important role in your long term outcome and recovery.
Your Chiropractor will discuss with you to see if massage therapy would be beneficial for you and the variety of different techniques available to you.

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) & Laboratory Testing
Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) is ideal for those patients who are really struggling to regain their health and where everything else has failed. FDN gives us the tools to investigate a little deeper and more comprehensively in to the more complicated cases.
FDN uses a sequence of functional laboratory testing to assess and identify any H.I.D.D.E.N internal stressors (Hormone, Immune, Digestion, Detoxification, Energy Production and the Nervous System) that may be contributing to the underlying cause of many common and chronic health complaints, identifying healing opportunities to restore function and balance to the body to rebuild your vital reserve and your health.
FDN takes a holistic approach by working on everything in a non-specific manner. It looks to remove the causes of ill health upstream in order to restore health and vitality through lifestyle, behavioural and dietary modifications as oppose to just addressing the symptoms downstream by masking them with medications or surgery as you continue to get sicker.
We offer various functional laboratory testing which include:
- Full Metabolic Blood Work –HDL-LDL, Triglycerides, HbA1c, Fasting Insulin, Vitamin D
- Adrenal Stress Profiles – Cortisol, DHEA, Melatonin
- Thyroid Panels – TSH, T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, TPO Antibodies
- Male and Female Hormone Profile – Testosterone, Oestrogen and Progesterone levels
