Dr Louise Blair (Chiropractor)
What if there was a way to achieve boundless energy and feel vibrant & healthy? There is and I’m lucky enough to spend my days helping people with this 21st century challenge.
In my early teenage years, I had headaches. Not just headaches though – these were debilitating. I hated even walking as each time my foot touched the ground, my head throbbed, my vision was affected and I was missing lots of school. But my mother had always had headaches – I thought this was normal, part of becoming an adult. Chiropractic care changed my life.
Up until then I had wanted to be a medical doctor. That was the only type of doctor I even knew about. Suddenly, a whole new world of possibilities was opened up. That we could take charge of our health & plan to be well – rather than wait for symptoms – was now a reality. I was drawn to the idea of helping people realise their inherent healing ability & as a result lead a happier and more fulfilling life.
Luckily there was a chiropractic degree in Sydney. Firstly a Science degree from the University of Sydney, then a Master of Chiropractic from Macquarie University. Until then I knew, but didn’t really understand, that chiropractic was also for people who are currently healthy and wanting to increase their well-being. WOW – I couldn’t wait to get out into the real world and start looking after people.
As both a chiropractor and the owner of Back to Living, I see how important it is to help people really get to the bottom of their health concerns. Whether someone sees us initially for aches and pains, low energy or as part of their wider well-being strategy, being able to integrate the many demands we make upon ourselves is paramount. I’m committed to being part of the solution to the 21st century’s health crisis. The first step is coaching those we look after how to stop re-creating their patterns and step off the sickness path. Once we do that, you and your family are on your way to living fully
Daily I see the benefits of a chiropractic lifestyle for kids – with chiropractic as the primary health care utilised by my family.
How does a working mum keep up with all this? From experience I’ve learnt the hard way how important it is to do as I ask my patients – plan ways to stay well. I receive regular chiropractic care, eat fresh, whole foods, take time out to relax, read and exercise regularly. At the moment I am rather taken with my shiny red road bike and will happily jump at any opportunity to escape on it
So what about you & your health goals? Wouldn’t you like to once again have boundless energy and feel vibrant and healthy?
Dr Anjali Patel (Chiropractor)
I always wanted to be a part of a profession where I could help people reach their full potential. I looked at many avenues of health care and when I stumbled across chiropractic, I was curious to learn more about the simple concept that the body is intelligent and when working at its best; your health can be at its optimum.
Unlike many chiropractors my experience of chiropractic started later in life. I was a relatively healthy baby (well that’s what I thought) and it was not until I was going through my last year of high school that I was exposed to chiropractic. Throughout my time at New Zealand College of Chiropractic my understanding, value and passion for chiropractic blossomed.
As a Chiropractor I am committed to help you solve your health concerns through Chiropractic care. Together, we can go through this journey, achieve your health goals and help you feel and function at your best.
I was born and raised in Auckland, NZ and when I’m not adjusting spines, I love playing netball, exercising whether it be outdoors or at the gym and have been a dancer since I was 5 years old.
I am very excited to be a part of the Back to Living team and look forward to engaging with you at the practice and within the wider community.
