Surfers Paradise Chiropractic Health & Wellness Center
Our massage therapists are fully qualified and registered with health insurance recognition – so you can be sure you are in good hands. Both of our therapists have over 10 years of experience getting great results for the people they see.
Why do we use massage therapy – most people have been holding stress or tension in their bodies for years. In your body’s attempt to compensate for and even protect these areas of stress you develop knots from adhesions developing in between the muscle fibres.
Whilst we recommend exercises, these adhesions often need a little extra help to get them to really release – known as “stripping” the muscle. Massage is the perfect compliment to a Chiropractic adjustment as it helps to release pressure and increase movement in areas that have been restricted for months or even years!

In 2020 I had my debut as a professional Ironman in the Nutri Grain Ironman series. This has required a massive amount of focus and dedication which is largely driven by my passion for developing and improving he potential of the human body.
Chiropractic has played a vital role in helping me overcome injury as well as keeping my body functioning at an extremely high level to be able to stay competitive throughout the year.
I have learnt so much through my studies and my sporting career about the need to stay healthy, but also how devastating even relatively small injuries can be as they affect so many aspects of daily life.
To me Chiropractic is so much more than just helping reduce pain, its about helping develop the best version of ourselves without the limitation that pain and restricted movement can create
When our physical and emotional demands increase, we must also take the time to give back to our bodies. This for me, is where chiropractic has come into the equation.
From a young age I was introduced to the power of chiropractic. Having routine adjustments throughout my schooling and into adulthood allowed for me to combat the stressors of growing, retaining information and just general life.
One thing that became evidently obvious was that chiropractic was helping me with so much more than just pain, I was not only standing taller and feeling more aligned, but also more confident within myself, this led to the passion that enabled me to study this amazing profession.
I now have the opportunity to spread the awareness of spinal health and help people first hand increase the quality of their life.
If I can say anything about chiropractic, it is that it is so much more than pain management. The nervous system controls every function in the body and when we look after it, our health becomes our greatest asset.
