“Nature needs no help, just no interference”

– BJ Palmer, The Developer of Chiropractic

The human body is innately designed to be well. If you were to get a broken bone, a cut, a cold or the flu, your body would intelligently heal itself without direction and without you having to lift a finger. Chiropractic care helps to support the body in its natural process of healing.

PHILOSOPHY

Chiropractic focuses on the powerhouse of the body – the central nervous system. Every function in your body, from movement, digestion and breathing, through to your quality of sleep, immune system response, dealing with and responding to stress and mental/emotional regulation is controlled by the central nervous system.

Due to accumulated stress (physical, chemical & emotional) during pregnancy, from the birth process or throughout life, the nervous system can become stuck in a stressed, survival and protective state, which limits the ability for healing, growth and well-being.

The purpose of Chiropractic is to release these stuck stress patterns within the nervous system, allowing the body’s natural tendency to heal, and be healthy to flourish.

Focused Support

Our wellness space focuses on supporting pediatric, prenatal care and young families.

Pregnancy

Chiropractic Pregnancy Support

There is nothing more special and powerful than the creation of life. Over the course of nine short months, a baby is rapidly growing and developing from two cells into 3 trillion and the mother’s body goes through plenty of change as well.

The mother’s nervous system is responsible for growing their baby’s nervous system along the way. Chiropractic care ensures that the brain and the body are well connected and at ease, so both mum and baby can go through pregnancy optimally.

Pregnancy and birth are magical, and at times, a challenging experience. The Wellness Collective is here to support you along the journey, so that you can have the pregnancy and birth you’ve always dreamed of.

KIDS

Clear and connected right from the first breath.
During the first few years of life, the nervous system is in its most impressionable state. The changes that happen here will impact how the child grows, develops, interacts, socialises and learns for the rest of their life. With chiropractic care on their side, they have the best chance at optimal development, health and life expression.

Stress from the pregnancy or birth process can have a significant impact on a baby’s developing nervous system. Research shows that upwards of 80% of babies have subluxation (locked in stress) and neurological stress patterns following natural deliveries which may contribute to compromised development and function.

Kiddos experience stress just like adults, but they might not be able to tell you about it. School age kids are also learning and going through so much as they navigate the world. It’s imperative that all kiddos live with a nervous system at ease to ensure optimal health, learning and growth. Chiropractic care ensures proper neurological function and development, setting the stage for a lifetime of good health and wellness.

Common signs of a subluxated bub:

  • Colic
  • Spilling
  • Latching issues
  • Digestive issues
  • Poor sleep cycles
  • Torticollis
  • Delayed developmental milestones
  • Poor weight gain

Signs of a stressed-out kiddo:

  • Tantrums
  • Trouble focusing
  • Poor posture
  • Behaviour/social challenges, sensory processing disorder
  • Hyperactivity
  • Ear infections
  • Allergies/Hay Fever
  • Learning & developmental delays/difficulties

Family Wellness

We live our entire life through the nervous system, so ensuring it is clear and at ease is absolutely vital to living a healthy life.
Our thorough examination of the nervous system allows us to identify any areas of subluxation (locked in stress) and create an appropriate plan to release this stress, so that you can express your optimal potential & have more energy for family, leisure and work.

Symptoms

Although counterintuitive, symptoms are great! They are your body’s way of signalling that it is not keeping up with the demands and stress placed on it. We then have a choice. Do we listen to these messages? Ignore them? Suppress them? Or correct the underlying cause of why they are appearing?
