What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a drug and surgery free modality of treatment concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system (spine); this includes the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health.
Chiropractors focus on the detection and correction of abnormal spinal function and its subsequent effect on how the nervous system controls and coordinates the body. Chiropractors in Australia are nationally registered and regulated healthcare professionals.
Chiropractors provide patient-centred care and work in partnership with their patients, by using shared decision making through a detailed consent process and using communication strategies that are tailored to the needs and preferences of the patient.
When treating infants and young children chiropractic care typically involves the use of low-force, low-amplitude techniques in contrast to those used on adults. Chiropractors are educated to modify spinal manual therapy to suit the age and presenting condition of a patient.
Chiropractic care is delivered by university educated, regulated healthcare professionals with a commitment to ensuring evidence informed care is provided to patients.
Over 300,000 Australians visit a chiropractor every week. Chiropractors play an important role in the spinal healthcare of everyday Australians by using a variety of non-surgical techniques, such as specific spinal adjustments, manual therapy and low-force intervention. Chiropractors offer a drug-free, hands-on approach to spinal healthcare.
Diversified Technique (DT)?
We’re different. We look at your health from a holistic perspective, not just traditional chiropractic. Our practitioners are trained and accredited in selected multidisciplines to help provide the safest, gentlest and most effective approach to your health. We can also use these various techniques to provide a service that is unique and comfortable for you. The techniques we use are outlined below.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a unique health care system because it recognises that correct physical, biochemical and emotional health are fundamental to optimal health.
Your nervous system controls all your cells, tissues and organs. On that basis, Applied Kinesiology Chiropractors use muscle testing to assess your nervous system function and find a solution to your health concerns.
In Australia, Applied Kinesiology is trademarked so the Australian public can identify accredited practitioners who are holistic primary health care professionals highly skilled in the assessment and application of structural correction, nutrition, cranio-sacral therapy, meridian therapy, visceral (organ) therapy, Retained Neonatal Reflexes®, immune system function and many other health aspects.
Neural Organization Technique (Not)
Neural Organization Technique is a specialised branch of Kinesiology which works through the central nervous system to restore structural, bio-chemical and emotional balance. This discipline works with neurological priority systems. It uses acupressure, reactive muscle monitoring and co-ordinated respiration to address areas of concern.

AN EXPLANATION OF NET
NET is a mind-body technique that uses a methodology of finding and removing neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress. NET is a tool that can help improve many behavioural and physical conditions.
WHAT MAY NET HELP WITH?
NET Practitioners are nearly unlimited in their ability to address the physical and behavioural stress-related conditions of their patients. These conditions include headaches, body pains, phobias, general anxiety, self-sabotaging behaviours, organ dysfunctions and so much more. It’s important to note that NET does not cure or heal the patient, but rather, NET removes blocks to the natural vitalism of the body, “allowing” the body to repair itself naturally.
HOW DOES NET WORK?
NET is based on the physiological foundations of stress-related responses. As discovered in the late 1970s, emotional responses are composed of neuropeptides (amino acid chains) and their receptors, which lie on neurons and other cells of remote tissues in the body. The neuropeptides are ejected from the neuron and carry the encoded “information” to other sites within the body. These neuropeptides are in a category of neurochemicals known as Information Substances (IS). IS’s are released at times of stress-related arousal and become attached to remotely-positioned neuroreceptors.
Significantly, this process also happens when a person recalls to memory an event in which a stress originally occurred. This is a key factor in the NET treatment. Thus, the physiological status of the body is emotionally replicating a similar physiological state that was found in the original conditioning event by the process of remembering.
Here’s a classic example of how a physiological response can be associated with a memory: Visualize a lemon . . . go ahead . . . try it. Now, think about cutting into that lemon — smell the lemony scent and see the juice running down the sides of the lemon. Now, squeeze some of the lemon’s juice into your mouth and take a big bite of the lemon. Is your mouth watering? If you’re like most people, it is, and what you’re experiencing is a physiological response to the memory of a lemon. The body’s response to stress works in a similar way.
