About Me 

My chiropractic career  began when I was a boy around age nine. I developed intermittent paralysis.  This meant that sometimes when I was running around, the power to my legs suddenly cut off and I would fall over.  I fell over a lot and had the most scared up knees of any boy in the neighborhood.

My parents were concerned.  Mum took me to various doctors to fix the problem.  Nothing helped.  

Eventually my back and neck started make grinding noises.  My sisters thought this was horrible, although I found it quite entertaining!  Something was obviously wrong with me, we just didn't know what.

Then Chiropractic became part of my life.  We lived in Lower Hutt and there were only two Chiropractors.  Mum chose one.  This doctor really listened to us, he examined me and then he told us EXACTLY what the problem was!  

It was an unforgettable moment.

He said,  

"Mrs Gordon, this boy has a bone out of place in his back.  The bone is twisted and locked. It's causing the grinding noises in his back, it's also pinching the nerves and shutting off the power to his legs".

 We thought this made sense. The next bit was easy.  What this doctor did was to lay me down on my side and make a quick deft thrust with his hand on that bone in my back. I felt it release.  It didn't hurt, it actually felt good.

I felt better immediately and after several months of chiropractic care the cause of the problem was completely corrected.    No more power cuts, no more bleeding knees, no more grinding sounds, just a normal boy.

Later on when I trained to be a Chiropractic doctor in Melbourne, I was taught that the entire body gets all its power and control from centers in the BRAIN. 

Now I could do cool stuff just like my chiropractor.  I have to say being a Chiropractor didn't disappoint.  I have seen real miracles over the years.   Things that aren't supposed to be possible.  But when you  release the accumulated stress in the nervous system,  you are actually balancing the brain and re-enabling the brain to do what only it can do, heal the body. 

After forty years as a registered chiropractor I gave up my registration because I had learned the art of re-balancing the brain and nervous system gently.  So now there are no Chiropractic adjustments.  I have found that a stressed out brain and nervous system is best released with very light force. Light force works  better because my patients can be TOTALLY RELAXED.  

For example, I worked on a disturbed baby recently.  I've seen many of these over the years. This baby started crying after birth and didn't stop crying.  Not a hungry cry, but a painful cry. She was becoming run down, not gaining weight and the situation was becoming serious.  I examined her and found the top bone in her neck was twisted resulting from a difficult birth. This type of injury is common. It can cause overwhelming physical stress to the brain and brain stem.  As I lightly and specifically corrected the nerve interference in her neck, she fell gently to sleep.  On our last checkup her mum reported that her new baby was quite happy and relaxed, doing just fine.

If you suffer needlessly, like so many people do, fill out the form above to the right or just pick up the phone for a chat. Make an appointment and come over.  

I love to meet new people of all ages, with many diverse forms of challenge and just like that chiropractor who helped me all those years ago, I'm here to remove imbalance to the brain and nervous system, so that the power that made the body can heal the body.
