Our practice is dedicated to providing gentle and effective family chiropractic care, with a special focus on babies, children and mothers. We use a whole-person approach that takes into account the physical, emotional, and neurological aspects of your health. Our main focus is on brain functional development, integration of primitive reflexes, Vagus Nerve assessment with treatment and Sacro-Occipital functional relationship. By spending more time with our patients, we are able to deliver higher-quality care and educational services. Our goal is to help our patients achieve optimal health and wellness for life.

PHILOSOPHY
PAEDIATRIC CHIROPRACTIC

Dr Monika has specialised training in working with children and is committed to helping your child achieve optimal health and wellness. Whether your child is struggling with a specific condition or you simply want to ensure that they are developing properly. Chiropractic care for infants and children can address retained primitive reflexes, breast feeding difficulty, positional plagiocephaly, poor posture, scoliosis
and 
sleeping difficulty.

PREGNANCY AND MOTHERS

Chiropractic is highly beneficial during pregnancy. Low back pain and discomfort are very common and might be due to expected physiological changes, hormonal changes and the increase in body mass leading to altered compliance and increased mechanical stress on the spine. The enlarging gravid uterus, accompanying compensatory lumbar lordosis and shift of the centre of gravity may increase strain on bones, muscles and ligaments of lumbar region. We are trained in Webster technique which is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and gentle adjustment often used in pregnancy. Chiropractic care during pregnancy may also help your baby get into the best possible position
for delivery.

WELL BALANCED CHILD

Evidence-based approach that is grounded in the principles of developmental functional neurology. Our focus is on specific stages of brain development and we use a variety of techniques to functionally measure and examine the brain as it goes through these stages. With this approach, we strive to identify when, where and why brain development is altered in its functional development. This has allowed us to better understand and treat a variety of
neurobehavioral conditions.

SYMPATHETIC DOMINANCE
VAGUS NERVE DYSFUNCTION

Autonomic nervous system is broken into two parts: Sympathetic and Parasympathetic (Vagus Nerve). The parasympathetic side is known as "feed and breed" or "rest and digest" mode. The sympathetic side reacts in "flight or fight" situations. What happens when we are in Sympathetic Dominance? We can experience sensitivity to light and sound, sugar or salt cravings, digestive upsets, headaches, tiredness and many other symptoms. How can we improve Vagus Nerve function? We offer advice, assessment and simple to use tips on how to balance your autonomic nervous system.
