Chiros are postural & wellness experts
The chiropractors at our Brunswick practice are committed to provide evidence based treatment protocols that are scientifically proven to be effective. We’ve been established since 1990 and are experienced treating many conditions such as back pain, sciatica, headaches, migraines, neck pain….. just to name a few.
Our focus is not just where the pain or problem is manifesting but equally importantly why this health issue came about in the first place. Analysis as to where, how, why and what, needs greater investigation and understanding to get sustainable results.
Physiotherapy to recover from injury or sports
Our Physiotherapist Rochelle Vujcich-Harris’s treatment approach is primarily hands on and exercise based incorporating her experience in sport therapy, rehab pilates and sport science.
Rochelle is an ex elite athlete having worked with high performance athletes, sports teams and professional dancers as a sport therapist for many years prior to physiotherapy. She has since completed Dry Needling Levels 1 / 2 & Continence & the Continence & Women’s Health APA Level 1 Course. She is keen to provide pelvic floor training, pre/post natal exercise and also address complaints to do with the pelvic pain & instability.
She incorporates dry needling, needle head moxibustion, soft tissue massage, myofascial techniques, mobilisations & taping into her manual work. Her exercise based rehab utilises functional strength training, clinical pilates, core stability & pelvic floor training, which emphasises correct biomechanics & postural alignment. Rochelle also offers chest clearance, pulmonary rehab and breathing retraining for patients with respiratory & breathing patterns complaints.
Improve your health with Naturopathy

It is a completely Natural, Holistic method of sustainable non-invasive healing that works with the body to promote wellness. Our naturopaths help patients with an incredibly wide range of problems such as food allergies and intolerances, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), menstrual disorders, fertility and womens issues, chronic fatigue, arthritis and joint pain, candida, stomach bloating, poor immune system, flu/cold and many other health issues. Our mission is to find the root cause, put your body back into balance and your life back on track – in a sustainable, long-term way.
Detox with a professional colonic
A Colon cleanse (also known as colon therapy, colonic-irrigation or colonic-hydrotherapy) is a gentle cleansing of the large intestine dating back to ancient Greece. There are two primary forms, natural (using teas, herbs or enzymes) and practitioner based. We offer the more effective practitioner based version. Our colon hydro-therapist perform the colon irrigation for you (known as a closed method) ensuring safety and hygiene. Colon irrigations work a little like self-applied enema’s excep t far more effective as they use much more water. A great advantage of this method are none of the odours, discomfort or risks.
Preferred choice by athletes
Massage & myotherapy both promote healing by increasing circulation of blood and lymph which reduces painful swelling and inflammation and brings vital nutrients to damaged tissues. In addition, massage and myotherapy remove waste products (such as lactic/carbonic acid) and stimulates healthy separation and realignment of chronically contracted muscle fibres. Massage & myotherapy trigger the body’s relaxation response, interrupting a cycle of stress and muscle tension that can accumulate in response to life’s challenges. One of the key differences between the two modalities is, myotherapists utilise dry needling as part of their treatment, but having said that, a large percentage of remedial massage therapists do complete a course in dry needling as part of their post graduate continuation of education bridging this fundamental difference.
More youthful & toned skin
Skin needling (also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT)) was developed by plastic surgeons when they discovered that controlled micro damage to the skin via tiny punctures at certain depths, unleashed the natural and powerful healing properties of the skin. As a response to the penetration of the skin, the body flooded the microscopic puncture holes with new collagen, elastin and blood vessels giving the skin not only a more youthful look but also proved to repair damage to the skin caused by old acne and surgery scars…..an unexpected benefit!
Balances yin and yang energy
According to Oriental medicine, a person’s health is influenced by the circulation of “qi” (body’s life force) and blood in the body. The pathways through which qi (pronounced “chee”) flows are called Meridians, and these circulate throughout the organs and tissues of the body. Acupuncture works on the premise that when this natural flow becomes obstructed, ill-health arises! Acupuncture involves the stimulation of acupuncture points along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and allow the normal flow of qi. With an inadequate supply of qi, the body fails to maintain balance and disease and illness follow. Meridians were originally mapped out by the ancient Chinese but modern technologies such as Kirlian photography, electronic and thermal readings are now used to detect them.
Muscle testing & activating
Kinesiology is the term for muscles testing. Kinesiologist use muscle testing as a bio-feedback from the brain to show where stress is lying in the body. Each type of kinesiology then uses different tools to relieve that stress so that the body can heal.
Stops your vertigo world spinning
From the many non-invasive treatments designed to be naturally advantageous for personal ear hygiene, ear-candling (also called ear coning or thermal-auricular therapy) is among the most famous and beneficial. This process basically involves using a light and somewhat hollow candle to create a vacuum in the ear canal which later draws out excessive ear wax along with other impurities that may be present. The ear candle is usually made by using a material coated with beeswax and readily available in health stores.
Makes suggestions to the subconscious
Hypnosis works from the premise that auto suggestions made in a deeply relaxed state reaching the subconscious mind can take effect and have the potential to influence perceptions & attitudes bringing about change.
Allow self healing
Homeopathy is a system of complementary medicine in which ailments are treated by minute doses of natural substances that in larger amounts would produce symptoms of the ailment. It is based on three central tenets (or laws), unchanged since 1796. 1) The law of similars states that whatever would cause your symptoms, will also cure those same symptoms. 2) The Law of Infinitesimals states the cure found in law1 should be repeatedly diluted in water. The more dilute the remedy, the stronger it will become. 3) The law of succussion is the vigorous shaking of a homeopathic remedy to further increase its potency.
Movement is life
Clinical Pilates is a form of physical exercise that focuses on posture, core stability, balance, control, strength, flexibility, and breathing. Clinical Pilates is used by our physiotherapists to treat a wide range of injuries and conditions, ranging from low back pain and chronic pain to hyper-mobility and chronic fatigue syndrome. By working into your body’s preferred movement, Clinical Pilates improves your mobility, stability, balance, posture and overall function.

You see we believe without any doubt 5 major health premises and it is from these health premises that the majority of our clinical decisions and recommendations are derived. Health Premise # 1 “The body is a self healing and self regulating entity with innate intelligence”. Health Premise # 2 “Health Comes From Within” . Health Premise # 3 “To call medicine… health care or wellness care is an oxymoron, medicine is all about “sick care” not health care”. Health Premise # 4 “The nervous system is the master control system of the entire body hence a normal functioning nervous system is critical to health”. In particularly this has been a founding philosophy by our Chiropractors and many neuroscientists. Health Premise # 5 “The majority of health complaints are linked to 3 lifestyle stressors”
- physical (how you use your body)
- biochemical (what you put into your body) and
- psychological (the mind/body connection)
