I graduated with a Bachelor of Science (majoring in Anatomy and Physiology) at the University of Queensland in 1994, and completed a Masters of Chiropractic at Sydney’s Macquarie University at the end of 1995. I’ve worked as a Chiropractor for the past 20 years – how time flies! In 2014, we celebrated 10 years at our beautiful Windsor Practice.
Before moving to Brisbane, I practised in Coffs Harbour, the Gold Coast, and in the oldest clinic in Scotland (celebrating 75 years in 2015). It has been a fantastic journey.
I have worked hard as a Chiropractor to master and combine traditional adjusting techniques with the latest scientific research and technology. I am qualified in Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), Webster Technique, Impulse Instrument Adjusting, and am a registered Trigenics Physician. These techniques have a fantastic application beyond the usual neck and back problems, all of which helps deliver quality care in our special interests: Family Wellbeing, Pregnancy and Paediatrics, and Optimal Sports Performance.
I am probably most proud of what Megs and I have achieved with our own family’s health, which has put my skills, knowledge and belief systems to the test! Our three children are at primary and high school, and in all their years they have never had an antibiotic or taken Panadol! Chiropractic is our go-to remedy for just about everything. The great success we have experienced with our family’s health has given me a lot of certainty about the way I practice.
My parents, who are of retirement age, have enjoyed exceptional health due to an inspiring lifestyle, which has had a huge impact on the way I approach everyday living.
Thanks to a tremendous support network, we have maintained great family health with minimal intervention. Our team of health professionals can provide you with the same level of support if that’s what you’re looking for. We would love to help you and your family achieve their health goals!
I have quite a simple ‘common sense’ philosophy, summed up by this quote by the Developer of Chiropractic, BJ Palmer:
‘Nature needs no help, just no interference’.
This principle is applied best through the delivery of a Chiropractic adjustment. The various techniques used in our office work to clear interference (or communication problems) between the brain and the body, particularly the spine, which helps the body to heal itself.
We also advocate for a lifestyle that avoids ‘unnatural’ additions to our food, harmful chemicals in cleaning products and beauty products, and so on. And let’s not forget interferences to our mental, emotional and spiritual health.
The saying ‘Prevention is better than a cure’ has been thrown around by health professionals for many years, but more recently the area of ‘Wellness Science’ has taken this to a whole new level. Wellbeing is about achieving optimal health, rather than just the prevention of disease. Much has changed since I first went to see a Chiropractor, thankfully!
Ultimately, we aim to motivate you towards lifestyle habits that will make you thrive.
