Chiropractic is all about improving spine + nervous system health. This is particularly important when it comes to ensuring optimal development in our little bubs & kiddo's, as well as mitigating the stressors of pregnancy both prenatal and postpartum.

We commonly get asked if chiropractic is good throughout pregnancy, or if we can adjust babies & kids. The answer is absolutely!

We want to continue to educate & inform our community about the importance of nervous system health, and how the spine holds the key to it all. The best way to do that is to make wellness-based chiropractic more accessible!

Until the end of June we are reducing our initial consultation price for mums/bubs to $30 (normally up to $70)!

If you, or anyone you know , would love to start your wellness journey with us, please get in touch! We can't wait to hear from you.
