Chiropractic is based on the premise that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating entity. Chiropractors understand that certain physical, chemical and emotional stressors can inhibit this innate ability.
“Chiropractic” is derived from Greek words meaning ‘done by hand’. The Chiropractor uses detailed history, orthopaedic examination, functional neurology and, where required, x-ray and imaging to develop a thorough understanding of your physical health and the underlying cause of your dis-ease. Then, using Chiropractic Adjustments and, Muscle Release/Activation, combined with comprehensive postural advice and exercises, the Chiropractor restores function and balance to the spine and nervous system and thus the whole body.
When muscles and tendons become fatigued, knotted, damaged, tight or immobile, Remedial Massage offers a healing treatment that utilises any one of several techniques to locate problems and support and speed up the body’s own healing process. It can be strong deep tissue massage or a softer relaxation massage depending on your situation or preference.
The massage is generally applied directly to the skin using lubricating oils. The massage helps to increase blood flow, shift toxins and relieve tension and stress.

Over time, custom orthotics will help to support your every movement bringing you relief from fatigue and pain, allowing you to enjoy daily activities once again.
Cupping is one of the oldest therapeutic practices in the world. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This helps to move stagnant blood and energy, in order to promote healing.
Acupuncture is a collection of procedures involving the insertion of very fine sterilised needles on specific points and various depths of the body surface. Stimulating these specific acupuncture points refines and corrects the imbalances of the body and as a result induces therapeutic effects.
