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!

“I have been wanting to move to the Gold Coast with my 5 children, and when I met the team here at Surfers Paradise Chiropractic Health and Wellness Centre I realised I had found exactly the right practice to join.
Having started my studies a little later in life it gave me time to make some really important decisions on not only what I wanted to do by also why.
For me the results I had received through Chiropractic care personally and then also with my children when they were babies really inspired me to be able to help people like that too. Although studying with young children was a challenge and a sacrifice – my children were always very supportive, and now my eldest daughter has finished high school and is hoping to study Chiropractic also.
Having spent the last 2 years in Canberra I was blessed to have worked along side a very experienced Chiropractor who was also a qualified naturopath. This experience really enabled me to fine tune my skills, working closely with chronic arthritis sufferers looking after not just their spinal adjustments but also their diets, supplementation, exercise and even state of mind through breathing and relaxation techniques.
Having of my own I also fully understand the desire and need to be able to make the right choice when it comes to health care for our children. This is not always an easy process, but I learnt to always look at the least invasive treatment first and then increase if required. This is why becoming a Chiropractor was so appealing to me as not only are baby and child adjustments very safe and gentle, the can stimulate incredible changes in the body, helping it move from sickness to wellness relatively quickly.
I look forward to being able to work with you and your families to keep a healthy spine and active life.
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
