The preservation of health is easier than the cure for disease.

- BJ Palmer (Founder of Chiropractic)

Chiropractic care

Your brain and nervous system monitor and coordinate all your body interactions, constantly... from the moment you're conceived through your entire life. 

Chiropractic harnesses the body's ability to heal, thrive and live optimally.  Chiropractic adjustments do not cure or treat specific conditions, but instead they help the body function optimally so it can heal innately - from the inside out.

We are a product of our environment! Different stress on our body can induce dysfunction and a state of dis-ease. These stressors can be physical - postural changes during pregnancy, labour, birth trauma (for mum and baby), previous injuries etc. Or biochemical - poor nutrition, medications, antibiotic exposure etc. Or emotional - birth trauma, past stressful events, finances, relationships, work, Covid isolation etc.

My role as a chiropractor is to help your body heal, regulate and function optimally AND to support you as you turn your overwhelm into empowering knowledge so you can make the right health choices for you and your family. 

Addressing the root cause of your health issues requires an understanding of the physical, chemical and emotional stressors effecting your nervous system.  Treating symptoms rather than the underlying root cause can often lead to recurring pain and health issues.  

MY philosophy...

taking a holistic approach...

Paediatric care

Your Child's nervous system is an incredibly smart and complex system

65% of ALL the brain and nervous system development that will unfold through your child's entire life will occur in their first 12 months earth side, so it's important to ensure that their nervous system can function at its fullest potential.

The pathways and connections that are used the most through stimulation and movement, are the pathways that will lay the foundation to your child's brain and nervous system development through their childhood, adolescence and adult life.
So how does Chiropractic care come into this? Well 90% of all the stimulation and nutrition that the brain requires for this development comes from the spine. 

Having completed 2 years of specific paediatric studies, I am a member and Diplomate of the Australian College of Chiropractic Paediatrics (ACCP) and maintain regular training to keep up to date with the latest research so I can provide the best care possible for all children. 

Pregnancy is an incredible and transformative journey but also a time where there are many rapid changes occurring within a woman's body. From the  physical changes, shifting centre of gravity, and the surge of hormones, it's a whirlwind of emotions and change.  And on top of this, you're also growing and supporting the needs for a growing baby. 

The mother's health prior to, during pregnancy and postpartum has a direct impact on baby's growth, development, nervous system, immune system, gut microbiome and stress response... so it's important Mum is being supported through this time to maintain not only her health but her baby too!

Chiropractic care has been associated with improved outcomes for pregnancy-related low back pain and increasing the relaxation of pelvic floor muscles. 

Prenatal care

and the rest of the family...

While I particularly love supporting women and children, I'm here to support all family members including dads and grandparents.  Your nervous system and adaptability to stress is a reflection of those whom you surround yourself with... so most families feel their best when everyone is well adjusted. 

Dr Ange utilises a range of techniques to assess and treat the nervous system holistically,  depending on what is required for each individual:
- Applied Kinesiology (AK)
- Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
- Retained Neonatal Reflexes (RNR)
- Diversified technique
- Thompson technique (drop piece)
- Activator methods
- Soft tissue release


- Applied Kinesiology (AK)

- Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)

- Retained Neonatal Reflexes (RNR)

Applied Kinesiology™ (AK)

Applied Kinesiology™ (AK) is a unique health care system because it recognises that appropriate body mechanics, biochemistry and emotional health are fundamental to optimal health.

Applied kinesiology enables your practitioner to evaluate the relationship between structural, chemical and emotional stressors and their effect of the nervous system and overall health. This triad is referred to by Dr George Goodheart, DC (Founder of AK) as the Triad of Health.

what is applied Kinesiology?

Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)

NET is a mind-body technique that works with the ‘physiology’ of emotional/stress responses.  While emotions used to be thought of as only being 'in our head', we know now that emotions can actually effect the physical and biochemical state of our body. 

Emotional responses are 'hard-wired' in the body.  We are exposed to a stimulus, we respond and the body should return to a normal state... for example, you have a bad dream and wake up with a racing heart rate and sweating, even though you were perfectly safe in bed, your body was having a physical response to a perceived emotional stress/event. 

The science behind NET

what is net?

Multiple studies have now shown that NET can influence brain physiology, changes in cerebellar function and the effects of chronic low back pain. 

Retained Neonatal Reflexes (RNR)

As mentioned above, your child's nervous system is undergoing some EPIC development in those early years.  In the womb and early life, when your baby's brain and decision making centres are not developed yet, their brainstem has several reflexes called "primitive" reflexes.  These reflexes play an important role in feeding, growing and moving around safely in their new world. 

As a baby's brain develops and matures, these reflexes are no longer needed and take a 'back seat'.  This is a normal and important part of your child's neurological development (think of it as the foundation) for learning more complex tasks and movements such as fine/gross motor movements, classroom learning and social interactions.  

However, anything that interferes with your child's nervous system like birth trauma, colic, reflux, food allergies etc, may allow these reflexes to remain dominant. This is referred to as a 'RETAINED NEONATAL REFLEX'.

Having a retained neonatal reflex beyond the normal age of integration can disturb other functions of the brain including:
- gross motor coordination
- fine motor coordination
- auditory processing
- visual function
- balance
- social and individual behaviour
- HPA (stress/hormonal) axis
