It is a blessing to love the work you do. After 32 years as a chiropractor and 28 years as an acupuncturist there is still a buzz in seeing how people can improve their health.

In the clinic you will always be given the time needed without being rushed.

My exam involves going through a series of orthopaedic, neurological and muscle testing procedures to help determine what may be going on.

X-rays may also be used to arrive at a diagnosis.

The clinic has state of the art treatment tables. I use a variety of chiropractic techniques as well as laser therapy and magnetic pulse therapy when appropriate for your treatment.

Chiropractic may be effective in treating musculo-skeletal and neurological conditions like headaches, neck and back pain, sciatica and disc bulge problems as well as sports injuries to the shoulder,elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle/foot and work injuries.

Acupuncture may be used for Management of :

  • pain, fatigue and nausea related to many chronic diseases
  • cervico-genic headaches, neck and back pain
  • Muscle tension related to stress
  • Pregnancy related musculoskeletal pains, nausea and vomiting

I have worked from the same clinic for the past 25 years and have had the privilege to treat many thousands of families, some three and four generations.

The body is a miraculous self healing organism that just needs the right type of encouragement from time to time to get the job done.

Here’s to a healthier you.

Could your skin do with a little love?

 Kayte Muir, our cosmetic consultant is offering customised Facial Treatments at the clinic, appointments are essential.

A facial not only allows you to relax and de-stress, it is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. Facials increase circulation which helps facilitate the renewal of skin cells. It allows for deeper cleansing and exfoliation as well as detoxification, helping to bring clarity to your skin. As a result your skin will be left nourished and hydrated and best of all, it helps slow down the ageing process!

Kayte will completely personalise your treatment using Arbonne’s Swiss Formulated Pure, Safe and Beneficial Skincare, so whether you want something for relaxation, deep cleansing or anti-ageing she has you covered! Your skin will feel amazing!

Can Optimism Make a Difference in Your Life?

Do you have a rosy outlook and see the glass as half-full rather than half-empty? If so, your good attitude may have even more benefits than you think. A growing number of scientific studies suggest optimistic people tend to live longer and have better physical and mental health than pessimistic people. Changing from a pessimistic mindset to an optimistic one isn’t easy. Start with these tips:

Think positive thoughts about yourself and others.

Stop comparing yourself to others in a competitive way. Each person has unique and special talents that are to be valued.

Try to find the good in every situation, even at difficult moments.

When facing a challenge, focus on achieving a positive outcome, rather than expecting defeat.

If you are finding it hard to create optimism support is available.

Everyone experiences stress and its effects

Short-term effects of stress include headaches, shallow breathing, trouble sleeping, anxiety, and upset stomach. Long-term chronic stress can increase the risk for heart disease, back pain, depression, persistent muscle aches and pains, and a weak immune system. Chronic stress can affect your emotions and behaviour by making you irritable, impatient, less enthusiastic about your job, and even depressed.

Change is possible, support is available and you can learn to manage and reduce stress.

Mindfulness and Meditation

Worry, anxiety, and stress can be more than distractions. Constantly replaying in your mind daily problems and fears can affect your mental and physical health.

By controlling your attention as you meditate, you begin to feel more relaxed and at peace. And this peacefulness usually lasts far beyond the meditation itself. So, when stress appears hours later, you have the means to redirect it.
